OK, so I haven’t updated as promised and I haven’t updated at all for a week. I now have a list of about ten items to write about. Maybe if work lets up a little I’ll find time…

I am going to bottle the altbier I made about a month ago soon. It needs it and I have let it brew long enough – too long if truth be told. I’m glad I got it done before the weather turned warm, so it will be that much more authentic (lager style beers need to be brewed cold – 55 degrees or less).

Next up is an unusual one for summer. I may actually do two at once. I have a friend who wants to do some brewing so I’ll have him make a basic ale and I’ll make a real ginger beer to make shandies for the hot weather.
