It's been a long time since I've posted any updates, but that's not because I've been neglecting this site. I've been neglecting my homebrewing hobby! Today, I bottled up the Experimental Brew #1, also known as "The 108" (based on its URL ID), which is also swallowing the updates for the Raspberry Melomel, Tepache Ale, and Sour Ale.

As you might suspect from the merging of these brew updates, the final product is a merger of those many experiments. The bottling bucket received all the 108 (3 gallons, give or take), half the Raspberry Melomel (about a quart), all the remaining Tepache Ale (just under a gallon), and a small fraction of the Sour Ale (maybe half a gallon at most). I filled 49 bottles, leaving a little under a quart of murky brew at the bottom of the bucket, so those eyeball estimates seem to add up about right.

I also boiled about two handfuls of Sorachi Ace hops in a couple cups of water, strained out the hops, then dissolved the priming sugar in that hop tea. Because... why not, right?

I'll update again when the first is tasted, perhaps right after we get back from Mexico (Nov. 29th). I'm guessing it'll be more tasty around Christmas or New Years.
