Yep, I still haven’t kegged the Kolsch. I should be getting that done in the next couple of days. I did manage to bottle a case each of the Belgian double and the Dirty Rotten Scoundrel.
I will say that the double is growing on me but I can see some changes I want to play around with on it. The first and foremost will be to caramelize the sugar to a darker color. I sampled Brewery Vivant’s Abbey Ale (in a can no less) recently. I can see a number of similarities between theirs and my double but at the same time they had a darker beer with some flavor notes to go along with the richer color. Makes me want to play around and see what I can come up with.
My store of agave nectar is growing. Tequila Sunset isn’t on the brew docket for a bit yet, but I have been considering a mead based on agave and honey. This could be an interesting combo. I also realized recently that I am getting closer to bottle time for the current mead. I should pick up a corker soonish. This just means yet another thing the brewery needs.
Time for a pint…
