Brew Day

This will be the quick and dirty about Saturday's brew session - I don't have much time at the moment.

Justin and I put together two batches this weekend, the Rising Sun Ginger-Sesame Red Ale v1.1 (MB0023) and, shall we say, and experimental batch of Rising Sun Red Ale, this time Rising Sun Oiwai (Celebration) Red Ale (MB0024), in honor of my wife's recent acquisition of a permanent teaching position. This was our Rising Sun Ginger-Sesame, sans sesame, add Peach. This is MB's first true "fruit beer", including a pound of frozen peaches added at the end of the boil, and an undetermined amount of fresh, pitted peaches to be added (muddled) during secondary. Oh, and we used Wyeast's summer Very Special Strain, a French Saison Yeast. Yeah, um, this should be yummy. We're excited to see.

More in coming days. Stay tuned.
