Sandy Marzen

With a hurricane day yesterday, I took the Marzen out of lagering and found some bottles for it.  It won't be ready for the October release goal, but maybe there'll be Novemberfest instead


Catching up on some of the math:

Chocolate Milk Stout:
OG: 1.050 (8/12)  FG: 1.010 (9/4)  ABV:  5.4%

Strawberry Blonde:
OG: 1.050 (9/22) FG: 1.009 (10/13) ABV: 5.4%

OG: 1.050 (8/12) FG: 1.010 (10/29) ABV: 5.2%

Airlock Overload

Don't Panic, the Chipotle is ok, just a little overactive.  I went downstairs to get my laundry and decided to check on the chipotle fermenter.... the Krausen had invaded the airlock.

An airlock swap and it's all good again, got this one before it became a mess

strawberry bottled

Strawberry Blonde part 2 is in bottle conditioning. five pounds of strawberries in the fermenter for 9 days have edged up the berry content a bit. two-three weeks of conditioning means this should be ready to accompany election day festivities.

by the numbers: 52 bottles, final gravitiy 1.009
