Bought ingredients. Brewing this weekend.

Brew day today went great. Got about a gallon and a half extra into a Mr. Beer fermentor.

62 yesterday. 64 this morning. Fermentation going really well.

Really slowing down 66.

Kraussen is increasing, but the airlock is not bubbling much. Took a sample. 1.016 puts this at 5.8 abv. Sample tastes good. Just need the yeast to flocculate.

Moved to secondary with 8 oz raisons and a little sugar to produce some scrubbing CO2. Still at 1.016.

Kegged. About 6.1% abv. Chilling in beer fridge. Not sure when I will start drinking. Would like to wait until the finals but might have to break it out for the LA series. We'll see how next game goes.

Finished TRASH last night so I put this in the keggerator. Needs more carbonation, but I think if needed, I can drink during tonight's game. Certainly during game 5. Currently at 15psi to help accelerate the process.

Good carbonation now. The magic of this beer is helping the mighty Blackhawks in game 5 and tonight in game 6.
