Racked my pale ale to secondary to free up a fermenter for this weekend. So far it has a great flavor and fruity aroma.

Another phenomenal brew from me. Well balanced, great aroma, flavor, color and clarity. Out of two cases I have a six pack left after handing out samples to friends and family. This one is definitely in the rotation with no tweaks.

I brewed another batch with the base grain bill and yeast but substituted Azacca for the hops. So far, the samples I have handed out, I'm getting great feedback. Everyone likes it.

Saturday I brewed a 5 gallon batch with the same grain bill, adding 8 ounce of flaked oats with all Simcoe Hops. I'm hoping the addition of flaked oats will give more body. If it turns out how I expect this will be my base pale ale grain bill.

Update on the Simcoe IPA. It is delicious. I really like the flaked oats addition. Gives it more body and mouthfeel. I it's definitely going in all my pale ale and IPA.
