What’s Brewing

Posted by Jim on Mar 29th, 2009
Mar 29

Today Nissa and I began the Lincoln Street Brewing Company when made our first batch of beer.  After buying some used brewing equipment this past week, we went to Maine Brewing Supply today to purchase a homebrew kit.  We decided on a red ale, and have named it Beer Drinks You Red Ale.  After mixing and boiling the ingredients, they are now in the fermenter, a 5 gallon glass carboy.

The beer will remain here for a week to ferment.  We will then bottle it.  It spends four weeks carbonating in the bottle.  We’ll be able to drink our first creation the first weekend of May.  We’re already planning on returning to the supply shop to pick up ingredients for batch #2, a pale ale, which we’ll start fermenting as soon as the red has been bottled.

Cellar Time

Posted by Jim on Mar 25th, 2009

Over the past few weeks, I’ve gathered myself quite a tasty beer collection to cellar.  It’s small right now, but I’ve got ambitions of eeping a good supply of quiality beers on hand.  My dream is to one day never need to go to the store when Nissa and I feel like having a good beer, we can just go downstairs and select something.  Here’s what I have on hand now (links go to the Beer Advocate pages for each beer):

Also, in our fridge we have a second bottle of Black Albert and a 750ml of Ommegang Abbey Ale, both of which will be consumed soon.  I’ve never had the Black Albert before, so I’m quite excited to try it.

I’m hoping to add a few more bottles to the collection in the next few days (maybe after payday).  Downeast Beverage has bottles of Dogfish Head’s 120 Minute IPA and Raison d’Extra, and a J. W. Lees Harvest Ale brewed in 2002.  Yum!  I also think my collection needs some Cadillac Mountain Stout 22oz bottles; you can’t have too much of that beer.

In other beer news, Jeff should be finishing his Novare Uprising card sometime Friday ro Saturday.  Good work Jeff!

  • Spent Saturday at my Parents’ house. Picked up some old posters and things to decorate my office with. April break = redecorate. #
  • Good film review: “There’s no real narrative; more like a bunch of scenes held together by the fact they’re all in the same movie.” #
  • Whiie @ladybugger is at her book group tonight, I think I’ll watch some concert films. #
