Brewed my next beer today as well. A Red RyePA called "Rye-O-Rye Red. The brew day went smooth and I hit my gravity spot on(1.065)! I used WLP051 California V for the yeast this time. I heard it was good, and rumor has it that its the same yeast that most West Coast Breweries use. Here are some random pics of the brew day and kegging the IPA.
Cool Picture of the Grains!
Foggy Hot break. Best one yet.
Kegging the Citra IPA
The weeks ahead hold some awesome happenings. This Thursday I'm going to try and attend a Lagunitas Beer event at Surf Taco, which is an awesome taco place with a bar that has a lot of good beers! Friday, even though its my day off, I'm heading to The Brewer's Apprentice for an Open House/Beer Tasting. We will be releasing three new beers to our line up: A Belgian Golden Ale, Scottish Wee Heavy, and an English Nut Brown(which I made!). Friday April 1st, I will be in Sin City number two aka Atlantic City, for the Celebration Of The Suds! This year I plan on bringing my camera and flip video to document every beer that I try. Stay tuned for all of that!
Until next brew...
