There’s not a whole lot to report on at BEERdad since the baby won’t be here for another three months, and I’m only about 1/4 of the way through my espresso stout.
The only interesting thing I can say is that the coffee beer is still turning out nice, and I got BEERmom’s mom (who hasn’t had a drop of alcohol for 20+ years) to try one. My mom and aunts will be in town this weekend so they will probably try some as well.
Because of this downtime (while I wait for my coffee beer to dry up so I can begin the next batch), I decided to embark on a few side projects. My first one was an insane/ingenious idea I came up to create the world’s largest brewing company. This project is still a work in progress, so more on it later.
The other project I started serves a bit more of a purpose but also drives my wife crazy, which means I only get to work on it on weekends. It involves karaoke, searching, and a lot of other websites. I should be done or nearly done with it this weekend or next, so I will share more on it later too.
In the mean time, I am also trying to decide what to make for my next batch of beer. I am a fan of dark beer, but not very many of our friends are, so this time I am thinking along the lines of a pale ale or wheat beer. If you are 21+, and plan on being around to try some, vote below on what I should make.
I might be inheriting a glass carboy and brew pot here soon, so the next batch may actually be from scratch.
