Another brew

Today was an absolutely beautiful day to brew---74°F, a few clouds in the sky but otherwise great. Brewed 10 gallons of Kölsch with a local fellow brewer. Always good to have good people around who like to make good beer. Things went well, was a little low on the temps when going from the beta-glucan rest to the sacc. rest but we resolved that. Mash-out temp hit dead on at 168°.

This same recipe has won 3 first-place ribbons in competitions over the past few years and usually comes up with 40-42 points. Plus there's a few more comps left this year so it's time to send in the big ones! Not to mention there's a growing demand for my Kölsch among family and friends so I had to get the supply back up!!

Cheers!

No, no Lithuanian whiskey this time. No beer in fact, he didn't want any and I was recovering from the night before!
