Good afternoon/evening FReepers. Yep, it is Beer Thirty Time Once Again!

Happiness is a bubbling airlock! And a Cold Brew

 

Irish Stout Yum!


This past week I racked an oatmeal stout to a secondary and added some oak cubes that had been soaking in Maker’s Mark for a little over a month. I think I will let them flavor the beer for a few days and then remove them. Has anyone used oak cubes or chips to flavor their beer? How long should they be in the secondary?

I will make my offer again to any Puget Sound FReeper homebrewers.

I have a boatload of Grolsch flip-top bottles, and can easily spare 20 or 30 to a brewer in need!

These puppies cost two bucks a pop at Larry’s Homebrew shop.

FReepmail me and we can work out the details...

Note to self.....start a new batch of beer before it gets too warm.

....I know...I'm procrastinating

I’ve got ten gallons sitting in secondary waiting to be bottled.

It’s drill weekend, dangit.

I bottled up 5 gals last weekend of a Belgian Dubbell. ABV turned out to be 8.5. I doubled up on the carbonating sugar.

Last batch I made that was kinda dull so hopefully this will help. Now we wait about 2-3 weeks. :-)
