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:
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.
Primary/Secondary Fermentation or aging in bottles:
2 Gal Test batch of hard lemonade – mixed up 2 gal of Lemonade from concentrate, added 2lb of corn sugar and am fermenting it with D-47 wine yeast.
Red, White and Black Melomel (Mead) – featuring 10 lbs clover honey, 3lbs raw honey and a mix of blackberries, blueberries, raspberries, and white grape juice concentrate. Fermentation started on 8-27-2011
Russian Imperial Stout ( RIS was bottled on 7-31-11)
Peach Melomel (Mead) clearing and aging a glass secondary. Used 13 lb clover honey and 12 lbs of fresh peaches for this one. (bottled on 9-17)
