Home brewing update

I started my third batch of Festa Brew West Coast IPA a week and a half ago. It used to sell as a season at Defalco's but has since become regular stock, apparently. I like that. No, I love that. :)

Last month (or was it two months ago?) I made, and consumed, a Festa Brew Mexican Cerveza. It was pretty good, and very easy drinking. It sure made my basement stink in the early stages of fermentation.

I still haven't begun my first "boiled" brew. The Brewer's Best Belgian IPA and Witbier are sitting in their boxes waiting for me. I've got two weeks of vacation time coming up at the beginning of July so I'll do it then.

I recently discovered this: FastFerment - http://www.thefastrack.ca/main/fastferment It used to be called V-Vessel. I suspect they made some kind of licencing deal with FastFerment.




I ordered one, and was hoping I'd be able to use it for the first boil, but they're not shipping until August. I'm not sure where I'll put it, since it's designed to be installed on a wall, into wall studs. EIther I'll rig up some posts on the unfinished side of my basement, or build it a stand. Apparently they are working on producing a stand for it. There are testimonies and photos of how some of the customers of the earlier model have rigged theirs up here http://vvessel.com/testimonials/
