    oh it was, I used lots of defoamer, it maxed out both the mash tun and boil kettle, my boil kettle is 25 gallons but mash is 20 so I couldn't have any more grain really, 41lb's is about maxing it out if your fly sparging on my system

    I just dry hopped my latest batch of pale ale, which seems to have reinvigorated the yeast - the air locks on both fermenters showing lots of activity again.

    Cleaned a keg, faucet and beer line. Kegged a pale ale, harvested some slurry and now cleaning a fermenter, Nice to have all 3 taps pouring and another brew conditioning in the kegerator.Will be weighing out and milling grain for my Galway Hooker Clone that I'll be brewing tomorrow. Man, all this work is making me thirsty.

    Yes it is. No way I'd be brewing often enough this time of year if it wasn't inside. Too damn hot outdoors.

    After the gas bubbles from the hops at the start, your hops you may kick off a little bit of extra fermentation. Some hops will release enzymes that will break down sugars that the yeast hadn't been able to ferment. It gives the yeast a little bit more food and restarts fermentation for a little while. It's related to heaps of variables I doubt anyone really understands, but it's not a problem unless you're packaging very soon after dry hopping. And it probably happens far less than people will tell you (the jargon term at the moment is hop creep).

    Kegged my Irish Red yesterday, bit more roasty than I wanted, will have to reduce the roast barley next time but it was rather nice otherwise. Kegging up a bunch of beer for a friends wedding, it's my wedding gift to him.

    Not much of anything. The cord on my pump was split at the stress relief, so fixed that. Just checked on my Galway Hooker clone that I pitched at 11:00 last night. It's happily chugging away and approaching high Krausen.
