    Thinking about a double brew day today. I have all the ingredients for a recipe I stole from @Jdub. It was gonna be called “jackin jdub“ but I quickly realized that was the worst possible name ever. Also, “Jackin Jesters” got changed to “Jester King Yeast”. In my language jacking means stealing but I believe theres a second meaning out there also. anywho, the vienna lager isnt doing the greatest in competition so Im not going to waste my money sending that to NHC.

    Going to do a small batch of Wiscohops, after reading my score sheets from the latest comp. I'm encouraged that this beer given the right timing and some more hops can move from very good to excellent. It was past its prime by judging time and with no changes, had it been timed better I believe it would have scored much better. I've entered this upcoming batch in another comp and very interested in its outcome. It's really quite good when in its prime. Lol, this beer was born out of a beer not sold here, @Creeps McLane, Titletown's Hopulation. Score sheet link- https://www.dropbox.com/s/m20m87m52g7zg82/000066 (1).pdf?dl=0

    Just ordered all the ingredients for vienna lager brew #3. Then I checked the “bargain bin” and saw they have pale extract 3.3 lbs half off so I bought 8! Little Chute run tomorrow

    There are already two packets of LME and 1 packet of booster in this recipe. I might consider using two cans of the St. Patrick's Irish Stout, no LME, and no booster.

    Looks good! Very good is only good enough to some. Reaching for that next level is a rewarding and frustrating journey

    https://www.mrbeer.com/booster adds about 3/4%. Two of them would be about 1.5% increase, so roughly 7.5% ABV. But the kit comes with one, so I wouldn't go with three. Personally, two most. Something else is https://www.mrbeer.com/brewmax-lme-softpack-robust commonly added to stouts, which adds 1% each. But that would add more stout flavor and could be a loss of the peanut butter flavor. I'm going to invite @RickBeer to this one. Maybe https://www.mrbeer.com/brewmax-dme-softpack-smooth @rickbeer, what do you think as far as adding more ABV, not affecting the flavor much, and the yeast would still be happy? Would switching the yeast to Nottingham Yeast be better? adoYiniM

    That is SO amazing! They're great pets. I'm always astonished by how much character they have. Mine are African Spur Thighs. I have 2 females and a male, but they're too young to breed (3yrs, 3months).
