Meet my little friend


Recommended Posts

The secondary fermenter. The homebrew is done. Yeast did a good job converting fermentable sugars to alcohol. The secondary allows the beer to clarify and the solids to settle to the bottom. Next weekend we will bottle the beer. OG 1.068 FG 1.010.

I just opened my first few bottles of winter ale. It was the first time I had enough bottles.

So far it's my favorite. I usually give away most of my beer, but I might drink most of these myself.

I still have a couple of bottles of my first failed homebrew.  They spew when opened and seem to have some solids and taste bad. Oops!

But did you die?

Not yet!  When my daughter had some friends over one opened one up by mistake because they were in bottles like Stone IPA, but with black caps.  As I saw him trying to choke it down I told him he could pitch it. :D

I probably would have messed with him. 

Good beer eh? Want another, I've got lots of it.

Ralph, your beer is infected.

#7, don't let your fermentation get too warm. #offflavors

I chickened oot last night.  Tonight's the night!  Those last few beers are like Pandora's Box. :D

After a couple of years, time will tell!

I kept them because I invested so much effort in them.

I'd suggest you save them, sprinkle some on your plants, and see if the deer choke on it as much as much as your daughter's friend did.  You may have just invented an organic deer repellent!  Just imagine the wealth and riches!
