We had a really good time at the Spring Picnic brew-in. Many thanks to Robert Chaney for the location and brewing the pale ale and to Shawn Mitchell brewing the porter. Thanks also for everyone who donated and all who showed up. Here are a few pics.
In spite of the cold weather, there was a good turnout. Here is an early picture, though we had a lot more people show up. Luckily, the wind was hammering against the back wall so didn’t affect things too much.
Here we are trying to figure out how the OG eneded up at 1.096 on the IPA and what to do about it. Barleywines are probably not a good session beer. We ended up turning a two corney recipe into a three corney recipe. We’re blaming/thanking a combination of the blackland’s malt, equipment change (efficiency), volume difference and ingredient increase.
