I have two hours of work left. That means two hours to decide between Sieera Pale Ale and Guinness (which for some reason I now like, even though I couldn't stand it in the past)

Yeah, I've gone through a few packs of the ESB, it was good. Last week Sierra 6-packs were on sale, so I got a pale ale and a wheat pack.

Beer content... Just bottled my Wailua Wheat Wannabe - maybe I should call it "My Lua" hahaha... Aaaaaaaaanyway. It's a Bavarain wheat but using American Hefeweizen yeast (WLP320) and Hallertau hops (1oz). I added 12oz of lilikoi puree at the bottle stage with and as part of the priming solution. The puree is 5g of sugar per 28g of puree, so I held back about 50g of the Dextrin powder hoping my bottles don't blow caps. Also used 12oz bottles this time since this is mostly for my wife and she doesn't like to commit to a 22oz bottle so it was a lot of work. I tasted it - the last in the bottling container - and it tasted sort of like warm, flat Wailua (yes I actually compared it to some warm, flat Wailua haha) so I was pretty stoked. Get to find out in around 2 weeks or so. It was hard to brew a beer with only 1oz of hops, but I am told this is how wheat is made.

My "high hop Mirror Pond wannabe" is bottle aging as well, with at least 3 more weeks to go. Something like 80 bottles aging now, and hoping to brew up another based on my first recipe in the next week or so. Still wanting to have a small brewfester with some other friends who have been brewing as well.

Also got rhizomes of Chinook, Cascade, Mt. Hood, Tettnanger and Willamete hops. Will be planting them shortly, and hoping to have a healthy yield within 3 yrs.
