    Excellent! I'm not a big fan of those spicy ales, either. The first beer I ever tried from the Harpoon Brewery was their winter warmer, and it took a while before I tried another Harpoon beer (glad I came around though).

    I've got nothing fermenting right now. I've got about 10 cases of homebrew filling my beer shelves, so I need to work through some of it before brewing some more.

    I've got three recently bottled batches. The wit will be ready in another week. The IPA is ready and is by far the best beer I've made...my first "home run." The cherry stout is ready as well, and is quite good. I barely taste the cherry. It just tastes like a smoked porter.
    We don't have that but we can get it for you.

    Do you try your bottles before they are ready?

    We always crack one open every week until 3 weeks. Most are carbed & drinking good by one week.

    Yup. I usually try them at one week and two weeks too. Technically the IPA should bottle condition for two more weeks, but it is fantastic right now.

    My porters and stouts tend to need three weeks to get a good carbonation going. I tried the cherry stout at one week and it was flat. At three weeks it was ready to go.

    I've used honey in plenty of beers at home and at work and even made a braggot (50/50 honey/barley malt), but other than the one batch of the Joe's "Ancient" that I dumped this is my first 100% honey fermentation.

    Nothing fermenting now but last night I bottled a batch of Imperial Pilsner.



    On deck I have a Classic American Pilsner, a Braggot and the wife has a Nut Brown.
    I am old enough and wise enough to know that I donít know what Iím doing.

    Becky has deemed it undrinkable (too much hops), you'll love it.

    I've been itching to expand my beer knowledge because I'm a complete beer noob. Sooooooo, I went to BevMo and bought a small selection of AleSmith beers. I got an IPA, Horny Devil and Extra Pale Ale.

    I'm having the Extra Pale Ale with my dinner and I'm already starting to buzz. This stuff is strong! Yes, I'm a lightweight.

    There is so much taste in this compared to the 24-pack brands.
