A tale of Pale Ale

I brewed a Pale Ale today. Sometimes you just feel like a light cold one.

I moved my Cuppa Joe and Witch's Tit porters to kegs today. Looking at a Pale Ale recipe next.

Brew, baby brew!

The homebrew has run dry at the Rakness house, but the future looks bright. Here's a list of what I've recently brewed.
Dec. 31, 2009 - Cuppa Joe - Robust Porter brewed with coffee malt
Jan. 01, 2010 - Witch's Tit - Robust Porter brewed to clone O'dell's Cuthroat Porter ( -15° @ brewtime)
Jan. 09, 2010 - Nandy Mac's Scottish 80 Shilling
Jan. 10, 2010 - Toby's Ass Dry Irish Stout (Guiness clone)
I'll have to wait a couple weeks to get these in kegs and free up a fermenter before I get to brew again. The beer should be flowing again in 2 1/2 weeks.
