Quick note...

It's late, so this will be brief. The Brew Day on Sunday was a success; there were 5 of us (myself included) in total, and 3 brews were completed--2 all-grain, one partial mash. The Witbier was the final one of the day; I think it will be my favorite of the all-grain ones. The Kolsch was completed, as well, and my initial estimate is that it'll be as much like version 1.0 as to make no difference; we'll call this version 1.1. Version 2.0 will definitely see the hops scaled back a bit, although I'm not sure I'll cut all the way back to the recipe I based it off of.

I got an email yesterday from one of my brew-buddies, who happens to live down in Dun Carriag; it seems that the site for their War of the Roses event (for which I brewed the Wit) is dry. That's a shame; I'm really impressed thus far with how much citrus I'm detecting in the nose. I hope the brew can hang on to that until I find a venue to serve it.

In all, a good time was had, and beer was brewed. What more could you ask for?
