Brewing and ‘cuing today! I’ve had a brisket on since 9:20a, and it’s coming along nicely. Starting a 16 gal brew (net 10 gal) of a galaxy hopped blonde ale. Should be a citrusy/passionfruit flavor profile.
Having something on the smoker while brewing gives me a lot of satisfaction, because both are long processes, but you know the payoff is worth it. Since we set up the brewing equipment on the patio under the lanai, it also means that you’re smelling smoky goodness all day while you brew.
Then, once all the work of the brewing is over, you’re rewarded with a rich, unctuous meal! We also like to pour a glass of home brew from the kegerator to toast the success of the day’s batch.
