Blackened Update 11/14/2018
We are just 9 days away from Black Friday! The Black IPA is coming along as scheduled. We dry hopped it last week with some Simcoe and Amarillo hops, and it sparked some vigorous fermentation. We had to switch out the blow over bucket, it was so full. Interesting thing about Amarillo hops: They are named after the Spanish word for ‘yellow’ because they look different than most hop varieties. They were bred by mistake, but people fell in love with the citrus aromas and flavors they gave off, so they stuck around. Back when I first started brewing, there was a shortage of Amarillo, and you had to pay a premium if you wanted to use them. Now, there are many other hops that more sought after than Amarillo, but I think it’s making a comeback.
Yesterday, we hit our target gravity, so we started the cold crashing and clarification procedures. What that means is the yeast have almost turned all of the sugar and oxygen into alcohol and carbon dioxide. CO2 is what you see bubbling in the bucket of sanitizer. We are getting close. Just a few more days, and we will be kegging and bottling! Visit our Facebook event page for more info.
Thanks to everyone who came out and bought raffle tickets to support Homes for Our Troops Charity on Veteran’s Day. It was a great success!
