Drinking beer #4

Well, my dog just took a dump in his crate. What better an occasion to pop the top of my new Hefeweizen that I just put in the fridge over the weekend!! It's probably the best year yet! It tastes great! Very drinkable, very refreshing. It has a good presence too, it's nice and clear. Kind of orangey, while still bitter. I'd say its blue moon with a bite.

Bottled up excitement.

I suppose in this case having something all bottled up is a good thing. The hefeweizen brewed two weeks ago, is now in bottles priming. I definitely like kegging the beer a lot more, significantly easier than the bottles... I could get a 4th keg, but then I'd just have 5 beers available at once. I guess I'm ok having the equivalent of 32 6 packs of beer available at any given time.

Hops update... The hops aren't looking too good to be honest. It's been dry, so i've been watering them daily. But I did read online not too long ago that they don't appreciate the Florida humidity too much. We'll see.

Hard work pays off...

This is it. Yeah, it's midnight, and yeah, I have to work tomorrow. So why the hell am I drinking a beer? This is why...

I spoke too soon

I'm going to keep this post short, because I tire of writing about my kegerator that keeps losing CO2. But this weekend I fixed it, I really fixed it. It is now hooked up to the kegs, and is able to dispense beer. That was very frustrating to fix.

But now I have a guest coming this weekend excited to see the kegerator. I'm going to make the final push and mount the faucets on the top and make it look nice! I'll post pictures after I'm finished.

Transferred the hefeweizen in to the secondary fermenter as well. The beer had an orange color, and looked thicker than the others.
