That sounds like a good combination of hops!

First time I've brewed a personal batch of beer in a lonnnnng time ... i think the last time I brewed for my own consumption was at the last mash occur in March, maybe?

Friday night I had a couple friends over and I brewed a roughly 5.5% amber ale hopped 100% with centennial. I went fairly light on the hops as I want to bottle the majority of it and give it away to friends and family as Christmas gifts - most of them are pretty basic beer drinkers so I didn't want to go too over the top on the hops ... I figure I got about 144 liters total so I should have some long nights ahead of me putting this into bottles.

Sounds like a wet run for the canning system to me!

Nice Rob... I brewed the SNPA clone today. Had to battle the wind pretty bad, I was able to block the wind enough that the burner stayed lit, but it was sucking the heat out of the pot (presumably, I'm not sure that's scientific). Boil wasn't super vigorous anyway.

I brewed this Red Racer clone on Friday. Waiting for the fermentation to die down before tossing in the dry hops.

The one Al had made was very close to the real thing.. Awesome recipe!

Last night I cleaned a couple kegs, and kegged my exchange beer. I'm low on vessels right now so I decided to dry hop and add the spanish cedar in the keg, and will bottle from the keg as well. No sediment for you guys!

Belgian Abbey was the culprit behind my first beercano that hit the ceiling. Use a large blow off!
