It's Been Awhile

We have not been idle, contrary to what the ol' blog would seem to indicate.

We've made (and consumed) a batch of Winky Dink Marzen, with another fermenting at present. Those were both at Marco's, as was a batch of Goat Scrotum Ale. That one was a bit disappointing, because we didn't bother re-racking to secondary, so the final result had a lot of sediment. It wasn't quite chewy, but you get the idea.

My keg currently has Whitey's Gone Fishin' Pale Ale (p.171), which spent two weeks in primary and two weeks in secondary. The result was a smooth, strong, extremely clear brew that's very easy to drink. It was also the first at my house to use an Ale Pail for the primary, rather than a glass carboy. Before that was our third stab at Snapping Ginger Ale. For my money, it was the best batch yet, but most of it was lost in what I refer to as the Super-massive Beer Foul, not to be confused with the merely Massive Beer Foul. That will need its own post, however.
