Celebrating my first all-grain homebrew with some Bouillabaisse at the restaurant where I work. I have a feeling this will pair quite nicely. Vinous note with a pleasant citric acid tartness. Light funk and oak cut any sweetness that might have affected drinkability. A wonderful saison that I don’t think I’ll have a problem drinking myself.

14 hours later? Yeah, those chapters on yeast efficiency I read really did the trick.

And there you have it…after 6 hours of brewing (I don’t know why it took so long) my INSANELY aromatic Pale Ale is in the fermenter. Hopefully reading all these brewing books leads to a beer that shows me I have what it takes to open my brewery.

And so it begins. If things go correctly, this will be the first ever beer produced by Monkey Town Brewing Co.

Catching up on a little afternoon reading with some green tea. Gotta make sure I’m ready for my Monday Brewday; the first all-grain brew of my career.

Doing a little side-by-side vintage tasting. 2014 vs 2010. It’s amazing how much smoother and delicious the 2010 is. Blows the fresh bottle out of the water. Caramel, toffee, port/sherry, soft carbonation and a nice tannic wine presence. Boys and girls, don’t age beer unless you’ve tried it first. This is one to age. It is so good.
