3 days, 3 beers

The kegenator was looking pretty sad with nothing ready on tap, and what with the holidays fast approaching I knew some drastic measures were needed.  Behold!
(clockwise from the back)
Wednesday: Rye Stout (Christmas)
Thursday: Jalapeño Cream Ale (Sierra’s birthday)
Friday: Mild Ale brewed with wild rice (Thanksgiving)

Say it with me: yum.  Also have a pumpkin beer aging to perfection which should be the crown jewel of the Thanksgiving lineup, although I have to remember to save some for my dad – it’s one of his favorites.  And an attempted clone of Town Hall’s Thunderstorm, an amber ale brewed with orange blossom honey, lemongrass, and … coriander?  I forget.  Mine’s got the honey and I steeped a whole box of the Mandarin Orange Spice tea in there.  Really delicious so far.

(The shirts and tubs of water are twofold: the shirts block the light which can skunk the beer and the water wicks up the shirts keeping the beer nice and cool as it ferments)

    Yum is right! And thanks for remembering to save me a pumpkin ale – I will look forward to it. The red wedding wine is now in the first clarification. Then we’ll rack it, clarify again and bottle. Then we’ll make the white wine – more yum!

    Man, I’m feeling just a little bit jealous. Luckily it’s the weekend, so I can go get some new stuff to try from the BoA brewery. Don’t forget to save a few of those for me to try when I get back!

    Is that the same jalapeno ale as you made last time? I think that’s one of my favorites of all time!!

    All those beers do sound yummy, but my favorite part of this post is the picture. I love the way the Mild Ale brewed with wild rice looks in its button-down shirt – cute, but a bit camera-shy with its back turned to us.
