About this past weekend, Steve was out of town, but nonetheless there was plenty to do. Saturday morning started off with Rob and I making a trip to the beer store. We had to grab some fittings needed to build our new beer filter… more on that later. Then after a quick stop at Jimmy John’s for lunch, home of the best sandwiches on earth, we headed back to the house. Using our new fermenters and recently constructed filter, we were able to rack and keg 10 gallons of our IPA in a completely closed environment… How awesome is that?! Later we made sure we had 5 gallons of our Belgian Wit carbonated for Kinsley’s house warming party. Fast forward to party time! Our beer was a huge success. Everyone enjoyed it and was interested in the brewing process. The Belgian Wit was gone, and it has been a long day. It was time to go home and sleep.
Sunday morning finally arrived. Rob and I got off to an early start at 9:30 in the morning. The weather was perfect; which brought some new faces to the group…this is always good. Around noon our good friend Chase fired up the grill and cooked some mean bratwurst. To sum it up, the day flew by and before we knew it our ESB was in the fermenter. To the folks that showed up, we thank you for your support and hope to see you again on Sunday.
