Here’s the facts fool!
– We were supposed to brew our Hot Blonde Jalapeño Blonde Ale on Friday.
– We didn’t brew our Hot Blonde Jalapeño Blonde Ale on Friday.
That’s the facts fool!
So, what happened?
It’s a funny story actually. No it’s not. I had strep throat. Brian and Seth knew how much I was looking forward to brewing, and being the big ol sweeties they are, decided to postpone our brewing session until next Friday. That’s what I’m going to believe anyway. They did, however, transfer the Smokey Grove Apple Smoked Porter to secondary. Brian sent me a few pictures of the action and I’ll share them with you now.
The first fermentation is complete and from what Brian said, it was a very active and almost violent one! Here is being transferred from primary to secondary.
Here’s the Smokey Grove going into secondary on fresh Fiji apples.
Here’s a closer look at the Smokey Grove and the Fiji apples getting all sexy with each other. Another week in secondary and she’ll be ready to keg!
Well, that’s it. I wish I had more to share, but you know, strep throat.
Until next time!
