Bottling and Brewery Modifications

It's been a while since my last post. I've been super busy with work, visiting my amazing girlfriend and playing gigs with my jazz trio. In the last month, I have however been able to devote some time to brewing related endeavors. I bottled my coffee stout and oatmeal dunkelweiss, which both came out pretty well, purchased a great book, Designing Great Beers by Ray Daniels, and started what may prove to be a total overhaul of my home brewery.

I had help from my handy father in building an insulated fermentation chamber out of polystyrene insulation and building a new mash tun out of a ten gallon insulated water cooler, which will give me the ability to make twice as much beer on a given brew day (I'll post pictures of each soon). I've been meaning to make these improvements for some time and I really think they will improve the quality of my beer.

Also, I will be selling beer at upcoming events by Bags For The People, a great organization run by my friend Glenn Robinson.
