Batch 1 of my Drunken Monkey Pale Ale. Came out to 5.4% ABV. Aroma is crazy: pineapple, citrus zest, light bready malts, faint pine.  Flavor is pleasantly bitter with crisp carbonation and a dry finish. Love that it didn’t come out sweet. All in all, a highly crushable session ale. Similar to Founders All Day IPA, except with more aroma and flavor. Excited about this recipe!

Celebrating the launch of our Fundable.com campaign the right way. Popping open this cellar gem after about 5 months of ‘slumber’ in my basement. 
Mixed fermentation really does lend both characteristics to this beer. Tart from the bugs but with the ‘body’ of a top fermented beer. It is very complex and tough to describe via typing, but needless to say I have never had anything like this before. Another whale slain!

THAT’S ALOT OF HOPS!
Thought I’d celebrate IPA Day the right way and dry-hop the shit out of my Pale Ale with 7oz of hops. Quite the cocktail of Simcoe, Cascade, Amarillo and Citra. Happy Drinking Everyone!

Well, it’s official…my Fundable.com profile is live! I want to give a shout-out to @thatisgrossman for being the first of hopefully many to GENEROUSLY donate to the cause. This guy has been such a huge help to me and my brewing journey. Needless to say, he is my co-head brewer, haha. Thanks again, man. You’re a true beer advocate and friend!

MY FUNDABLE.COM PROFILE IS LIVE!

At long last, my Fundable account is active and ready to receive donations! What this means is that I will have 60 days to raise the funds I need in order to help me purchase brewing equipment and other renovations to the restaurant.

The space will be a beautiful 40-50 seat cafe with full bar, outdoor beer garden and 3,200 square foot warehouse (where the brewery will go) located on a great corner in downtown Dayton, TN.

We have a lot of great rewards that cater to not only locals, but also anyone across the country that would like some great MTBC (Monkey Town Brewing Co) gear and items.

Fundable.com works just like Kickstarter.com; all you have to do is pick how much you want to give, enter in your credit card information, and then wait to see if we get 100% funded. If we do, then your card will be charged and we will begin sending out the rewards via email or in-store pick-up. However, if we do not get 100% funded, your card will not be charged.

Either way, you will not be charged for another 60 days until the campaign has ended, provided we hit our goal.

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.
