Prost!

So I have been brewing since the summer of 2006. Its passed being a hobby, I love the time I spend brewing. In the last few years brewing has become part of what I am.

Now on top of my love of homebrewing, I am beginning my move into the professional brewing scene with an expanding local craft brewery.

Mostly this blog will be talking about my brew days, any experiments that I work on and the process of getting into the professional world.

Adaptation

So I went to pick up our APA(American Pale Ale) ingredients last night.  And guess what, well lets just say he was on vacation last week and his shipment was due today.  So Adaptation, some slight changes in plan, grabbed some Marris Otter in place of the North American 2-Row, and for a good price, and actually its a more interesting malt in my opinion.

Berliner spending some alone time.
No 001...uh oh that's the house yeast...I could pitch on top of the cake from the Berliner, but its been lazy and hasn't been cleaning up after itself, and needed so more time by itself.  Green apple Berliner not that great.  Well we have the British base malt in there, and boy its smelling great getting milled.  Let's check out the frdge...007 why not boost up that British character.

Hops I have those covered...but well we've messed with everything else so why leave those alone.  No British hops in the freezer, but Nelson Sauvin, was planning on using them anyway for a dry hop and they are amazing.  I was just having a discussion with someone yesterday that our local brew pub's all Nelson IPA was the best they have done in a while.

And so was born Full Nelson Britsh Pale Ale.
