It was a long day this November 11th. I woke up at 6:50am. It is the last warm day above 60 before the snow comes so I thought this would be the perfect day to brew while the kids played outside all day.
This all comes off the heels of yesterday, where I spent the majority of my Saturday fixing the new kegerator for 4 taps, filtering the Red and getting fermentors cleaned for today. I also racked the two ciders I made a month ago to age all winter…though the honey one was still bubbling a little.
Of note, Mt Hood nearly doubled in Alpha Acid from a year ago. Always double check new hop batches and update your calculations.
