  1. After a few months now, I'm still enjoying this sessionable, lightly-tart brew.
  2. Ditto! I worked up a Specialty White IPA recipe today that might play nicely with the pink boots blend. Plus, I get to cereal-mash some wheat for the wit portion of the grain bill. This brew will count toward my Summer of Wheat too so win, win!
  3. I agree -- your Witbier is excellent! You could try brewing a Berliner Weisse, Muenster Alt, or Hazy (Wheat) IPA and send me some of those too! http://allaboutbeer.com/article/dampfbier-gose-munster-altbier/
  4. I need to get onboard with you guys on that, will order today.

  6. With just a handful of us left on the forum, I thought it might be fun to come up with some wheat-based recipes for summer enjoyment. Who's with me?🍻
  7. Are you logged in? I just noticed that the Forum appeared to log me out but a quick refresh logged me back in.
  8. Is it OK to leave a picnic tap indefinitely connected to a keg while maintaining 12 psi?
  9. I like that you're going the extra mile and acquiring golden promise malt for your Irish Red!
  10. I tried that with very poor results but will undoubtedly try it again after making sure to cool down the wand first. I also had too much pressure which resulted in a bottle 3/4s full of foam. Again, I need more practice with all things kegging.
  11. +1 on size 14 Adams. Other favorites include Lt. Cahill, parachute wulffs and wooly buggers.
  12. Hey @HoppySmile!, got anything interesting aging in that barrel of yours?
  13. Oops -- the perils of trying to brew, post, and drink in real time... That mash pic is definitely out of order! The chilled sample was delicious with some initial Pilsner/wheat sweetness, then balanced bitterness, and finished with some subtle sourness. I'm encouraged so far! Maybe Munster Alt will make a comeback as a historical style and take the craft beer world by storm. (Of course, I thought the same thing about Dampfbier...)
  14. Bottled @ FG 1.010 so ABV = 5.6%, will sample chilled hydrometer sample in the AM...
