    The beer is in the fermenter and has the yeast pitched, so it's well on its way! In one week, I'm going to brew up a nice winter warmer to go along side it. Just gotta whip up a third beer, and my contribution to the beer at camp will be complete!

    Sweet! Glad to see the failed light test. When do I get to kick the tires on that one?

    The longer you wait, the better. But if you make it to this side of the water any time soon, I'll throw a sample in a bottle and let you try.

    Evan,
    The Stout looks good. I'll gladly be your benefactor on a 4th keg if you have the capacity in your brewhouse. I can send you $, or bring to the O'Rad BBQ in January. I know it takes some upfront cabbage to get another batch going, so let me know if you want some seed money. We can put our heads together on a particular brew. I have quite a bit of time on my hands these days so perhaps we could meet up sometime soon.
