What’s on tap

Brew’s that are currently on tap in the keezer (updated 9-27-2011):

1. Coke Zero (always on tap so we don’t have to buy soda anymore!)

2. ESB –  except I can’t drink it since I’m donating it to the Charlotte Oktoberfest.

3. Centennial Blonde – kegged but not ready to drink yet.

OH MY GOD I’VE GOT 2 EMPTY KEGS!!

Waiting on Irish Stout and Imperial IPA to be ready to keg.

Kegged but not tapped:

Bottles:

Black and Blue Melamel (Mead) 15% ABV- My first mead brewed back in January is aging out nicely. It’s made with clover honey mixed with water and 3 gal of a mix of fruit juices. Needs more aging, but is tasting good after 7 months. A melamel is a mead (honey wine) with fruit added.

Braggot – 12%ABV – My first braggot. This is about 5 months old and improving with age.
