Creeping up to strike temperature on a Best Bitter Brew day, the first in a month-long run of English styles for the #EdmontonHomebrewersGuild , BJCP study team. Make sure you show up on November 6th to explore my entirely self-proclaimed wheelhouse (and see if I have reigned in my acetaldehyde problem).
For anyone playing at home, this is absolutely not the way to do this. To figure out how to do it intellegently go ask @yegbierfrau; I know that I will be doing so next Monday at the #EdmontonHomebrewersGuild kickoff. Otherwise, stay tuned as "Night at the Improv; Achtymichuk's Crabapple Cider" continues to slowly drip into a bucket.
A few points to go yet, but HopCatcher needs it's dry hop. As far as the sample goes it's holding up pretty well to the vision I had going in, but for the rebrew I want to push some additional flavour hops. #Batch41#HopCatcher#EdmontonHomebrewersGuild#dryhop
Tomorrow marks one year of brewing, and the memory of an absolutely terrible brown ale (which I thought was delightful). In honour of the journey so far I've decided to take a brewing holiday tomorrow and embrace the experimental spirit of that first brew. But with some actual knowledge this time. I'll keep you posted.
A bit too much kettle trub (that's the next problem to solve), and pitched a hair warmer than I would like but clean batch 39 is in, and off to a much better start than my first forays into fermentation. Not bad for a year's worth of beers. #Homebrew#Batch39#EdmontonHomebrewersGuild
Last weekend's Brown is swinging hard to become one of my favorites; plenty of flavour but not much left to chew on. I'll give it a wee temperature bump to make sure the yeast are fully happy with their work. #Homebrew#Samples#EdmontonHomebrewersGuild#BrownAle
Welcome to the preboil. Gravity seems to be on point so we'll see how it goes from here. The hop addition seems like it's mostly for show at this point; ~3IBU of low alpha Hersbrucker. #Homebrewing#EdmontonHomebrewersGuild#brewday
Time for the first test of the brewpump. Not the end of tonight's fabrications but probably the most important. The real test will be on tomorrow's Ordinary Bitter. P.S. I'm very ready for those cam locks @southsidewinningwinesplus #EdmontonHomebrewersGuild#Brewday#CompetitionSeason

Have you ever adopted a hobby and then got way too deep way too quickly? Welcome to #Homebrewing Three months, and 17 batches later and I have learned a lot so it is probably time to be less shy about it. Let's get obnoxious. (I promise that I am working on fermentation temperature control) #EdmontonHomebrewersGuild
