Feeding Time (Yeast and Cows)
January 2, 2009
I've had some good feedback on the Hellsmoke Porter, and will be smoking and brewing up more soon. If you have had some, and haven't yet shared what you thought of it, please do -- either via the "Be the Judge" form on BlindBatBrewery.com
, or on Beer Advocate
(or all three). I truly appreciate honest criticism. (And thanks to those who have given feedback.)
Meanwhile, back in the Fermentation Room, the yeast is happily eating the sugars, creating alcohol and carbon dioxide to make the wort into Wheatley Hills Weizenbock.
I finally got the spent grains to the cows in nearby Northport (no one was a the old dairy when I went on Sunday). If you have kids and happen to be near Northport, some free family fun can be had at the old Lewis Oliver Farm
in Northport. They've got two cows ("Sassy" and "Half-Pint"), as well as some chickens, ducks, geese, and a pig. For more information check out the Friends of the Farm blog
The farm happens to be looking for volunteers
. If you are free, they are having a meeting at the farm at 7:30 this coming Monday night (January 5, 2009).
