    Cheers all!

    When is the housewarming party Herm?

    Looking at the beer: my boat is a piranha hull. She's called Piranhix :)
    And yes, I also got Asterix, Marambix en Aquavitix. Obelix needs a new engine, but might actually become a small plunge pool.

    Dramatic improvement of cascade saison :D:p:D:p
    Gone is the boring just bitter taste.
    Still bitterness, but no longer overpowering. I can taste some fruity flavours now as well.
    Just don't ask me if this is from the yeast or the hop:rolleyes:
    Picture to follow

    I'm drinking (at 8:30 in the morning - forgive me!) another pour of my Munich Dunkel! I had to take some tasting notes - a near first for in such depth anyway... Hard not to have another though! Luckily it was in an 8 oz glass. I'm honestly in love with this beer - maybe it's because I spent so much time brewing it! lol - or maybe its because I'm giving so much of it away (my dad's oktoberfest party).

    Here's the tasting notes:
    Nice off-white/tan head that laces but dissipates within 5 minutes but leaves little rafts of head. Melanoidin dominates with a nice bready/toffee flavor and slight sweetness. Hops are present but not overpowering. Certainly malt forward with a spiciness (similar to tettnanger) that plays with the malt flavors and remains in the aftertaste along with the toffee. Beautifully clear with copper color dominating and hints of red on the outside. I'm not sure how it holds up as a Munich Dunkel vs a Marzen... Or if I'd even put it in the realm of either. I adore this beer though and think it came out fantastic!

    The dissipated head (and rafts) - anyone else ever seen this? I know I have before but not exactly where. What causes it? Proteins?

    Growin' up, I always thought people from Huntsville were Yankees. I had never been any farther north than Tuscaloosa until I turned 18, and went to my roommate's home for a weekend. I grew up in LA (Lower Alabama), so far out in the sticks we pumped in sunshine and pumped out moonshine. The directions to my home included the words "Turn off the paved road" (a mile of dirt road). The "paved" road was actually a culmination of about 50 years of patching some old tar and slag that was probably laid down by some county jail residents, and that was 50 years ago (meaning the road is now nearly 100 years of patching). Rough isn't the word. The World is flat, and I can prove it. I could see over the edge from our house. I grew up so poor I couldn't even pay attention. No exaggeration on this, though, it was 26 miles one way to get to school by car, nearly 45 by bus. I rode the bus. Needless to say, I realized education was my way outta there, and was slapping my knees out of my face when I left. Now, I'd give my eye teeth for a place just like it. Go figger.

    I know a little about Huntsvegas, but not much, other than I've done a lot of work in industry in and around it. Never was much of a bar-fly or partier, so don't know much about the night life or restaurant scene there. With craft beer brewing expanding the way it is, though, that might change. I still keep in touch with my old college roomie (he's 3 days older than me) and occasionally ride up there to a gun show or something that he has going on. If you're ever down Birmingham way, there are several micro breweries to try out in our area (north Shelby County). Oak Mountain Brewing, Oversoul, Siluria Brewing Co. Beer Hog, just to name a few, and seems more springing up pretty rapidly. Lemme know if/when you'll be here, and I'll make a point to meet up with you somewhere and we'll lift a glass to something.

    The name suggests a 'bitey' bitter. How is it? Never heard of it.

    Ice Bay IPA. Tastes like a classic West Coast IPA. Yum.

    Some new malt, a fermenting Stout, and the keg that once was home to Herms Wheat in the background.

    Drinking my Pineapple SMaTH. Really good but pineapple aroma fading rapidly. Probably due to oxidation during bottling. Little overcarbonated because I cut short the transfer to bottling bucket when I started transferring too much hops. I dry hopped with 6 ounces of El Dorado and BRU-1.
