First Brew Day of the New Year

Sunday, January 8th was my first Brew Day of the New Year. I always brew in the area just outside of my garage door, so it's nice if the weather cooperates, which it did. I was still hyper from the morning's activities, and I was definitely ready for a few beers.

Several folks showed up: New homebrewer Doug, "Good Ben" & Allison, Matt, and Kevin.

I brewed my latest version of a Kölschbier. Kölsch is always a popular beer to have around. Both beer connoisseurs and non-beer-experts alike seem to enjoy a good Kölsch-style beer. I put three different beers on tap, including a Belgian Strong Dark Ale. We all had a good time and the stories got crazier as the beer took ahold of our senses. I'll defer the brewing part of the session to the pictures. Any Questions?

Nice setup.

Thanks. I've slowly scabbed-together all kinds of technologies to get the job done.

I wonder if Fester would've still been giving me kisses if I didn't have the beef jerky on my breath.

No. He would move on to Allison, next. He really likes pretty gals, and will bug them for hours. Here's my dog's decision tree, in order of preference:

Milk Bone Treats...Cat Poop...Food...Other Animals...People that smell like other animals...Crothes of Pretty Gals...Faces of Pretty Gals

Now you can tell Allison, so that she can truly appreciate all of the face licking that he did.
