Some of us Beer Bloggers are going to meet in Portland, Oregon at the Oregon Brewing Festival (OBF). We haven't decided upon the date or time, but we are narrowing-down the place; possibly the Rogue Public House in the Perle District. You can keep up with the discussion on Sudspundit.
Bad Ben NanoBrewery Update:
I transferred the Saison to secondary fermentation last Saturday; it's gravity is at 1.016.
Yesterday, I transferred the "Spring Fling" IPA to the secondary. It's gravity is at 1.010, with a starting gravity of 1.068. I'm dry-hopping it in the secondary, then I will transfer it to tertiary conditioning to get it crystal clear, although it is already pretty clear.
Tonight, I'll transfer the Poor Richard's Ale to the secondary. (I should have done this 5 days ago, but what the heck, I've been busy).
On tap, I have my American Brown Ale, the Oak-aged Imperial Stout, and the Belgian Strong Dark Ale. All of them are quite tasty! I had 3 mugs of Brown Ale last night after a hard & fast 10-mile trail run. Note to self: Don't do this again on a weeknight.
Some fun Homer Simpson Beer Quotes:
Son, a woman is like a beer. They smell good, they look good, you'd step over your own mother just to get one! But you can't stop at one. You wanna drink another woman! -Homer Simpson
Homer: Got any of that beer that has candy floating in it? You know, Skittlebrau?
Apu: Such a beer does not exist, sir. I think you must have dreamed it.
Homer: Oh. Well, then just give me a six-pack and a couple of bags of Skittles.
