7/6 – It was a beatiful day in Bend to brew and we sat in the sun and tipped back a few cold ones. I did run into a bit of a hiccup while grinding the grain for this beer. The drill torqued the mill off of the bucket and I lost a few ounces of grain onto the garage floor. Probably won’t dramatically effect the final character of this beer but we will see. Otherwise things went smoothly and I hit my anticipated OG and volumes dead-on.
