We here at Regular Guy Brewing hope that you all had a happy and safe 4th of July weekend. I know I did, for many reasons. I got to spend the weekend with friends and family, share our delicious homebrew and see the wonderment in the eyes of my two year old daughter as she watched our city’s fireworks display. Great weekend.
Now it’s time to get back to business. We had a very busy and productive beer weekend. We added the second Citra dry hop addition to the IPA and bottled the Cream Ale on Thursday and then kegged the IPA just yesterday. I have some lovely pictures to share, of course, and I’d like to show them to you now.
In this picture you can see one hop sack that is bloated because it has been soaking for seven days. The smaller one was just tossed in. Beautiful color and amazing aroma here folks.
Before we bottle our beer we always pour a glass for ourselves. I mean, you have to do it. For science.
Here’s Seth trying the Cream Ale for the very first time. It was delicious by the way.
Here’s a whole bunch of bottled Cream Ale. Yes, the sticker on the cap has a “C” on it…for Cream Ale. We have mad organizational skills.
This is 10 glorious gallons of our IPA awaiting filtering and kegging.
The IPA being filtered. Does it get any prettier than this? I don’t think so.
And finally the IPA filling the keg. This baby will be ready for bottles on Friday. We did sneak a taste, quite delicious, quite bitter. Just what you’d want from an IPA.
Well, that’s all I’ve got. I’ll post some pictures next week of the IPA and we should have our next three brews figured out by then as well.
Until next time…
