Tornado Barley Wine Festival

Wednesday, February 6th, 2008

For those in the Bay Area, the Tornado Barley Wine Festival is coming up this month! Get a hotel room and take a cab. You will NOT be driving home from this one. 😀

Slow Posting

Wednesday, February 6th, 2008

Yes, I’ve not been posting lately and that has a little something to do with the fact that it’s been raining for 4 weeks straight here. It’s like I live on the Oregon coast or something (not that there’s anything wrong with that, I’m merely commenting on the rain totals) 😉 It looks like this weekend could be a very nice couple of days though and if it holds I’m going to bust out and do a two-batch session in an effort to catch up!

I’m very pleased with how this last round of amber ale turned out. I’ve updated the Faceplant Amber recipe to reflect the new incarnation. I guess were I versioning the beer it’d be Faceplant 2.2 as it was really just a fiddling of grain amounts to increase the malt backing which came through very nicely!
