A little less than a happy high
Paul and I bottled the Oktoberfest last night. Two weeks from now, it will yield its foamy dark amber goodness to those of you who wish to partake. I’m thinking that October 4 will make a most excellent unveiling. Perhaps I will make wurst and kraut for the occasion.

As we bottled, Paul asked questions about brewing process. When I think of it, it really is remarkably simple, though I still surprised myself at how much detail I was able to provide as we talked. Sometimes, I don’t know how much I know. I'm weird like that.

The wort seemed a little more hoppy than I would normally expect from a marzen-style beer (they tend to be sweet and malty), but it really was quite good. I rather preferred it to the Samuel Adams Oktoberfest we sampled at the brewery on Tuesday. I’m kind of anxious to see how carbonation changes it.

I do not fear for it. It is a mighty brew.

Current Mood: fermentable

Bah, stupid LiveJournal ate my post with all the cool subliminal messages.

I'll be in Boston from the 2nd to the 5th for the DiBaisley nuptuals. Can I come have beer?

Hmmmm... forgot about that. I won't be actively conflicting with the event, will I?

And of course! You don't even need to ask.

Subliminal messages?

Nuptuals are on Friday!

King Richard's Faire on Sunday?

You lose so many details when you're not on the guest list. And while that's cool (for a whole host of reasons...), I am a little bummed over A's bachelor party. Ah well.

The Faire is a possible. Have to see what's happenin' as the time comes closer. I haven't been in an age, so it should be interesting returning to the scene.
