By the By...

The brew session on Sunday went pretty well. I came up a bit short on volume, but I don't think it will hurt it too much. I forgot to take an OG reading, so I'm just guessing that it's somewhere in the 1.055 range. It's been doing its thing now for three days. I'm looking forward to seeing what this is like at the beginning of next week.

I actually just finished up listening to the Jamil Show
episode on Belgian Pale Ales. Aside from using a slightly funky hop (I used Styrian Aurora), my recipe and process was quite similar to that discussed in the show. I've been really wanting to start making beers specifically to enter into competitions, and this is one that I'm hoping will turn out as a really nice example of the style.
