October Homebrew News

I. It’s Here and It’s Good.

Just how good, I’ll let Mrs. Perm post her tasting notes and say. Suffice to say, I’m damn proud of this one.

II. The Howells English Mild Ale continues to be a bit pedestrian and boring. Nothing wrong with it, and it goes great with a bowl of bison chili, just nothing to write home about. I’ve made much better brews than this. Perhaps it (like so many others before) just needs to sit in the bottle and age for a while yet. But I’m not holding out for greatness.
III. Gearing up for the next batch:
William Billings Colonial Pumpkin Ale

I spent the better part of the first half of today brewing this one. Look for a future post devoted to it (with photos). It’s by far the most experimental brew I’ve worked on yet; I’m looking for it to be good — but as all true experiments are wont to be, there’s no real telling how the final product will pan out. Suffice to say at this point in the game, the color is lovely.

IV. Happy Birthday!!

St. Cecilia Brewery celebrated its One Year mark in September, and the crazy brewer forgot to mark the occasion with a note…however, I couldn’t think of a finer brew to mark the occasion with than that Irish Stout. Man, it’s good.
