I will serving 3 beers that I blended and force carbed last night. A 100% barrel beer, a 75% barrel/25% malty blending beer and a 50% barrel/25% malty blending beer/25% fermented chambourcin juice. I had a still sample of a roughly 50/50 barrel/malty blender last night and it was good.

Looks like I'll be coming tonight. Can't wait to try those sour blends! It sounds fantastic.

I was indeed. My name is Phil. I was the one with the long red goatee. You drank some of my stout.

It was a great time. I had a lot of fun. I'll be there for the next meeting.

Good to know. Glad you had a good time.

It was. It was a fun talk and tasting. I think future blends will use less of the malty beer and less of the wine. Lots of people that "don't like sour beers" seemed to like the 100% barrel Flanders Red. I'll be bottling some of this for the 12/22 tasting.

So yesterday I bottled a clone of Tallgrass 8-Bit. The dry-hopping with Galaxy made the carboy smell fantastic.

I also stepped up a yeast starter for my Oatmeal Stout. Unfortunately the ingredients didn't arrive on time, so that one will have to wait a couple weeks. Lesson learned - LHBS is the way to go if I want to brew within a week. Austin Homebrew supplies are typically good about getting here within 5 days or so, but not this time.

Drinking my Galaxy Extra Pale Ale and loving it. Simple grain bill, all Galaxy hops with 20 minutes or less boil time. I love the flavor of these hops, very citrusy, but also a little like what I would expect a venus fly trap to smell like; sickeningly sweet, hints of decay and powerfully floral. The beer is highly attenuated and easy to drink.

10G 1.046 ~42IBU's 5%ABV "Chico" yeast
90% pilsner
10% CaraVienne (adds a bit of character, mostly toasty)

1oz Galaxy @ 20 minutes left in boil
1oz Galaxy @ 10 min
2oz Galaxy @ 5 min
2oz Galaxy @ flameout.
2oz dryhop for 4-5 days

20minute whirlpool, flitered through a hopback with whole Columbus hops.
