Today was a good homebrewing (as a hobby) day. I didn’t actually brew, but I got the IPA moved to secondary, and the sweet stout (from months ago) kegged.
While I was doing this, I got to spend some quality time with my 8 year old son, as he helped me out and chatted with me for a couple of hours. It was good.
Details on the brews inside.
The IPA went into secondary with a SG of 1.015. Very nearly complete, if not completely complete! I’ll let it age in secondary for a month or so before kegging.
The stout went into the keg with an FG of 1.021, which is higher than I anticipated, but puts the brew at 5.4% ABV. It tasted absolutely fantastic, and I could probably drink it warm and flat without too much trouble at all. As it is, it’ll probably be ready for sampling this coming weekend, and perfectly carbonated by the next weekend.
The next brew is scheduled for some time between Christmas and New Years. No idea when in that time frame, yet! It’ll be a doppelbock.
