Ok, I NEED HELP! 
I just combined my Brett starters and it appears that a couple fruit flies made it into one of the flasks. What do I do? Will they fuck up my beer? Do I just wait until I am ready to pitch and then pour the yeast through a sterile cheese cloth? I don’t brew until Wednesday, so I have time. God, I hate those fuckers!

I love coming home from work 7 hours after pitching the yeast into my beer and already seeing a krausen and hearing it bubble-away. Thought I’d celebrate a quick and speedy fermentation with some Citra-hopped goodness.

After a stressful mashing, my Surly Bender clone is boiling like a champ. Nothing like an ‘oldie-but-goodie’ to quench my thirst.

I am absolutely in love with this beer. Just as good as Prairie Bomb! and 1000x easier to acquire. Stone, I’m liking where your collaborations are going. The first few left a lot to be desired, but this is the direction you should keep going.

My first attempt at a 100% Brett beer. Using White Labs Brett Brux Trois in a Saison I’m going to brew next week. Doing a 2-step starter by building this one up for 4 days, then making another and eventually combining both after 7-9 days. I might even take more Sofie dregs for that delicious ‘funky’ aroma and flavor that beer gets after some aging. Trying not to aerate too much as I want the Brett to get ‘slightly’ stressed and produce a pleasant tartness to cut any residual sweetness there might be. WISH ME LUCK!

First of many experimentations with wild yeast in the air and bacteria in my well water. I’m going to try to see if unboiled well water and direct air exposure to my 3 hour old yeast starter (plus the dregs from a bottle of Sofie) will result in any souring bacteria forming in my Wheat Beer. Honestly, I just want to see if my well water has the potential to turn me into the next Hill Farmstead!

Celebrating the end of Labor Day and having worked 19 days and doubles without a day off. Busting out a cellar gem: 2009 Stone IRS. HUGE amounts of fudge, sweet tobacco and anise. Trailing behind is watery espresso and cream. No trace of alcohol and no signs of oxidation or spoilage. This is probably one of my all-time favorite beers because of its ability to age gracefully. I absolutely love this beer!

First time using my stir plate. Pitched last night and, as you can see, my yeast are happily munching away!
