When last I reported on my home brewing adventures, the jalapeno saison was a success and a batch of tripel was fermenting in my carboy. Well after that post I decided to buy a second carboy so I can have two batches brewing. And so this past weekend I brewed up a batch of Everyday IPA from the Brooklyn Brew Shop. I followed the instructions, but in the last five minutes decided to throw a pepper in the wort for the final five minutes a la the jalapeno saison.
With two batches fermenting it'll be a little while before a report out the results of these brews. I plan to bottle the IPA on October 1st after three weeks in the carboy and then bottle the tripel on October 9th after 6 weeks in the carboy. I already have a new adventure I'm considering that would take me away from the predetermined kits with this Pumpkin Ale recipe.
So stay tuned for updates and as always, consider taking a shot a brewing. It's fun and easy.
