    I will be drinking my second home brewed beer! I made a batch of Belgian tripel and split it into two 2.5G carboys after the initial ferment. I force carbed one and left the other to go another two weeks with a couple of ounces of American oak which has been soaking in bourbon for three weeks. Bottled that. Popped the first bottle the other day and it was AMAZING!

    I plan to allow it to condition for a few more weeks and then chill em down and get to enjoying them further! For now, Im drinking a Fat tire as I brew my Amber ale. I plan to bottle half and keg the other half.

    Biere de Mars. Brewed in January with orange peel and lemon verbena. It was good in March, just as good, maybe better, in July.

    I've also been drinking a pretty good Kate clone. Love that grain bill every time

    Drinking a cascade motueka Galaxy IPA. Love the hop combo but seems like it's got the slightest bit of dms. Bummer. Still super tasty these hops shall meet again

    Enjoying my birthday with the very last bottle from my first AG batch over a year ago. WLP644 all Citra IPA. Delicious. Somehow my Trois IPAs all seem to be impervious to the oxidation problems that plague the rest of my IPAs.

    Trois really does great at scavenging oxygen. It develops some nice hay like funk and continues to work some in the bottle. Love that yeast!!!

    Enjoying a successful IPA. Utilizing Mosaic, Centennial, Chinook, Warrior, and Cascade in boil, dry-hopped with Amarillo, Mosaic, Chinook, and a dash of Pacific Jade. A hop-mutt, but deliciously floral, herbal, brightly tropical, and resinously earthy on the finish. ABV Unknown.

    Photo does not do this justice. For what I'm calling an Imperial Pale Ale, imagine mostly Zombie Dust combines with Bitter Oats. Juicy, creamy body (15% flaked oats) and just the right balance of malt and hops. This is pretty out of style, but damn good. 8.6% English malts, all citrus hops and cloudy like the recent NEIPAs. Don't care what it is, tasty is all that matters.

    Drinking a refreshing hefeweizen while doing some quality control on my NEIPA that's carbing :wink:. Not a bad way to end the week.

    Taking this break from IPA (empty keg syndrome) to enjoy my chocolate milk stout. Immensely drinkable stuff.

    First run at a NEIPA, and this guy is finally carbed and ready to drink! Mosaic, citra, and galaxy hops. 1.059 OG and 6.8% ABV. Went for a balanced water profile which gives this a nice smooth feel. Wyeast 1318 is a beast! Used Whirlfloc, cold crashed and that guy won't drop. Really happy with the finished product. Cheers!

    Things I learned from this IPA:

    Love the malt bill (91% Golden Promise, 3% Caravienne, 3% Carapils, 4% sucrose). Used US-05. Great color/backbone/head retention.
    I like Columbus as a flavor addition in limited quantities for herbal/dankness, but 15 IBUs may be the upper limit.
    Equinox just takes away from Citra. I used 2:1 Citra/Equinox late boil/hopstand/dryhop. I taste the great Citra flavors but then there is a slightly muddled/green pepper note from the Equinox. Same on the aroma. Next time, I'll use the same grain bill and Warrior for bittering, with a little Columbus and ditch the Equinox. I have had a great SMaSH IPA with Equinox, but I won't mix it with Citra. Cheers.

    Blonde fermented with Wyeast1318 and dry hopped with Comet and Citra hops.

    Love this beer. The 1318 was an AWESOME choice for it. Aroma of peach, melon, and grapefruit. Taste is crisp and dry with a nice passion fruit note on the back end thanks to the dry hops. This is going to be my first "house beer". I called it "Dry Hop Naked" (there is a story behind this, but sometimes it's best to leave things up to interpretation.)

    Tapped my ChocoRaspberry Rye Whiskey Barrel None More Black tonight/this morning. Dangerous brew. Having some issues with my keg out-post getting clogged with raspberry chunks, but it's flowing.

    super, had the same problem with my raspberry Belgian at bottling. Made another batch and put raspberries into a BIAB bag, some pulp but no chuncks:slight_smile:

    ESB test batch. Not as dark as it looks. First Gold hops lead the way to malty finish. A very nice drinker!
