|Just in case my feet-writing is illegible: "Broken Helmet Was Here"|
Things have been a bit quiet as of lately. The last two weekends have come and gone sans brewing...but I'm not complaining. Had the chance to hit the coast and have a great time with the fam, and this weekend was a great unplanned weekend where we just did what needed to be done. Now, that's not to say that things have been at a standstill...
|Let there be heat!...and hops!|
The Pale Rider IPA managed to ferment down a bit lower than expected. At last check, it was at 1.008, down from 1.040. Still not a big beer, but it'll be a nice summer brew. I split the 2.5 gallons to play with it a bit. 1 gallon received a nice fresh jalapeno pepper and some additional hops. The remaining volume was left plain and should be going into the bottle tonight. The peppered portion will be bottled mid-week.
