A sickly sweet abomination. My homebrewing failures continue unabated.

Just opened the batch that's currently in the fermenter and dropped in 1 oz of Amarillo hops. First time I've dry hopped, so we'll see what happens.

Warm Marzen wort and Bruichladdich 10 mixed ~50/50.

Makes a nice hot toddy on a brew day!

Opened my first bottle of the Chinook/Centennial/Amarillo pale ale I made on Boxing Day, and it's very drinkable. A huge step up from my first two efforts. Still not hoppy enough, but still tasty.

A bitter I made in late Dec. I got the recipe from Jamil's book - Brewing Classic Styles. I can taste the sour dough flavour, but it is too slight. Being a big fan of sour dough bread, I may up the % of Breiss Special Roast Malt. Other than that, I think it is a pretty good recipe. Yeast? S-04.

american wheat with clementines. was doing a parti-gyle and should have taken the time to run the numbers on my bittering addition rather than guesstimating. overly-bittered, but still pretty tasty. the clementines hide until you get a bit numbed to the bitterness, then come through as a nice complimentary background note. definitely one i'd brew again.

Did a taste off tonight of 2 pretty damn good stouts to decide which to enter in a competition. One is 2.5 years old and still hoppy as balls. The other has an incredibly complex and smooth malt profile, the aroma has a hint of cherry. Very interesting, two very different, but very good stouts... not sure I decided on anything... oh well.

Bottled my first attempt at a cider tonight. Came in high (about 8%). but drinks low. Nice rounded character - only real flaw I find right now is that the alcohol is a little too prominent, but nothing a spell of maturation won't fix.

Good idea, I do this all the time actually. One of the benefits of having lots of kegs!
