Hey, that's not Washington! Darn right- this is California. You'll also notice the fabulously shiny brew kettle and the pristinely clean burner provided to the Zealot by the Saint specifically for brewing in the fairer state. I thought it was about time to brew an all-grain batch after my successful attempt at a Scotch Ale extract back in August. I had lofty hopes of creating a Rochefort 10 (probably my current favorite beer) clone, but decided to scale back and landed at Dogfish Head 90 Minute IPA (definitely not my favorite beer, but I though it would be a nice "end of summer" refresher). For the recipe, go here.
I had help from Ben who proved himself invaluable once again. The only hiccup was a little troubleshooting during the mashout and a stuck sparge. We finished off my Scotch Ale (yum) along with a Stone 2011 Vertical Epic and a couple others...

for my birthday. My only
complaint is that yeast is not
part of the equation.
All in all- great brew day. Hope you can join us next time.
