    Started out to brew Shady Bohemian, realized I didn’t have the right grains on hand, changed it up to a summer ale with a cereal mash/decoction. Realized after dough in that I didn’t have the right pot to do the grits…used a Nesco(took over an hour to get them gelatinized. Changed the recipe midway through and adjusted hops/spice. 8FCC0159-6484-40A6-9958-976C43A4211C.jpeg 03090F68-5DB8-4D26-8C57-F2477E496C94.jpeg
    Well it’s boiling now…

    So I get it cooled and sampled/pitched. First I realize my gravity is off a bit(my fault, I had the efficiency wrong in the recipe, fixed that). Then, just as I go to start cleaning up I look at the frementer and....drip, drip, drip...

    Sanitized the backup fermenter and transfered the beer over. Think I'm going to get a cup of coffee before I clean up.

    Problems that surely would have done in a lesser brewer turn out to be mere child’s play for BMBB! :)
    Way to improvise, well done!

    Long week at work, the struggle could have been avoided if I had only followed the 7 "P"s...

    Ah... "Proper"! Yeah, I guess just because you had a plan doesn't guarantee that it was a good one!

    Yup, can’t just take for granted that you have all the ingredients on hand, or the fermenter assembled correctly so it doesn’t leak without checking first.

    I’ll give it another go on the Shady next weekend. Ordered a pound of 60l crystal this morning.
