Thirty Second Infusions

Dave Arnold just leveled me up with his article, Infusion Profusion: Game-Changing Fast ‘N Cheap Technique, which uses a iSi N2O powered cream whipper to infuse anything into anything in ~1 minute. I will have to try this...

A History or Capitol Hill Brewing

The Hill is Home unearths drawings and adverts from the "Washington Brewery Company", which pairs well with WeLoveDC's coverage of a new local brewery.

On the original Washington Brewery Company:

Brewing: Lemon Spice Beer

Bottled today in preparation for the worst that the DC summer can throw at us - a wheat beer with tons of lemon and spice (cardamom, allspice, cinnamon, nutmeg and a dash of ginger).

The Sping Bock turned out OK - nothing mindbending, but a good solid beer.

On Tap: SpringBock

Sping Bock

My late spring brew for the 2010 was a simple bock ("Spring Bock") It ended up pretty strong, so I also nicknamed it Jumpgoat. It's a pun. Look a the label. It is decent, and tastes like a good, cask-conditioned bock. Which is good, but nothing terribly exciting.

Next up: a spiced lemon wheat beer for mid/late summer.

Tapped: Equinox Red Ale

Beer Label - Equinox

The first beer of 2010 was an Irish style Red Ale dubbed "Equinox" for its balance. It was strong without being heavy and hoppy without being too bitter. Unfortunately, it's tapped out now.

Brewing Schedule

I'm beginning to plan out my beer brewing and bottling schedule for the year. On tap (sorry) for 2010:

Early Spring: Irish Red
Late Spring: SpingBo(c)k
Early Summer: Lemon Spice
Late Summer: West Coast Pale Ale
Early Fall: Pumpkin Lager
Late Fall: Coffee Stout
Early Winter: Cranberry (?)
