Really? I just can’t believe that a whole year has gone by already. I still haven’t posted my score sheets from last year yet, and unbelievably, it’s time again. Where do the days go?
This year, I did start brewing earlier, which was probably my biggest problem last year. Still, I wish I had started even sooner. Looking at my tasting notes for the “Mike’s Saison“, I had said that it was super delicious after 5 months, yet I started brewing early July. Doh!
This year, I entered “Mike’s Saison“, my “Centennial Blonde”, “WeizenHeimer’s Heffeweizen”, and “Sweet Mutt” Honey Nut Brown Ale.
I’ll have to get the recipes up here pretty quick. The WeizenHeimer’s Heffeweizen is actually the same recipe as the Bee Cave Brewery Hefeweizen, except that it was fermented with a Belgian Wit yeast at 62 Degrees F. Let me tell you, that’s going to be one tasty beer.
Yes, I did say “going to be”, because as of the time of this writing, which so happens to be a full 2 days after I submitted my entries, the beer technically still needs about another week before it’s ready.
If you think that’s bad, the Saison still needs 9 days. It won’t be ready until 2 days before judging. Either way, I’m willing to bet they don’t do too well. I should have made the Saison 5 months ago. Yes, if you haven’t guessed, my problem here is planning and procrastination.
The Blonde should be pretty good, and I’ve been drinking the Honey Nut Brown, and I really am happy with it. I’ll be sure to get those recipes up here pretty soon. Pinky swear 🙂
