Two regular dudes who happen to be huge fans of American craft beer.

I am sick, again. Seems to be the theme of my life for the past six months. It has been a rough bout with just about every cold ailment imaginable. This series of ailments has also slowed down the progress on the home brewing front: I haven’t brewed but I am catching up with some aging beers.
Brett Backspin was brewed back in February as my second attempt attempt at a Belgian Pale Ale. The beer finished at 1.007, I realize it could maybe drop a bit more, but felt that 9 weeks at 68 degrees Fahrenheit was enough, I wanted to taste it. I did drink a bit of the beer that I used to pull the gravity. The beer is subtle, easy to drink, and carries an ABV of 5.7%. I can’t wait for carbonation to finish so that I can give it a real taste.
This was a long day of bottling because of how the dish washer works and not really paying attention to the setting for the dishes that were in there to start originally. I am trying to use this occasion to get the wife into allowing me to pick up some kegs and get started down that path.
Coming up: this weekend I am a bachelor and brewing both Saturday and Sunday. Enjoy!
