homebrew update...

there's been lots of beer brewing going on recently, but i won't be getting much of it. a couple of months back polly (my sister) and ryan (her fiance) asked if we could help them brew beer to give away as a wedding favor, like we did for our wedding last year. well, we're right in the middle of the brewing now... 3 batches are in the fermenter, waiting to be bottled. we did northern brewer kits and did the fat tire clone, paterbier, and wit. so far they're all looking good.

the oak2 (belgian dubbel) is on tap in the basement now and getting good reviews but the other tap is idle at the moment. the pilsner kicked and with all of the other brewing thats been going on i've only just had time to brew a batch of wit (wit some rosehips added to see how that tastes) to replace it. i'm going to try and get it on tap in time for july 4, but it'll still be mighty young at that point. next up i've got an oktoberfest (for baby's first oktoberfest this fall) ready to brew and a brown ale kit on order to follow the oak2
