jay and i have really got da brewery up and runnin!
we brewed again last weekend. two weekends ago we brewed up a witbier, a belgian-style white ale (similar to hoegaarden, a brand available virtually everywhere now). we used bitter orange peel and coriander to spice it up a bit and white labs WLP400 belgian yeast strain. this past weekend, we finally racked the beer over to secondary so that it can condition nicely and maybe ferment down a few more points. but then we also went to the store (the hoppy brewer supply co. in seekonk!) and got ourselves a bunch more ingredients.
we end up brewing a clone of a belgian beer called st. sebastiaan ale. it should turn out a brown/amber strong ale with a nice belgian spiciness. here are the two belgian babes in the fermentation room (aka jay's basement).

It sounds like you guys know what you're doing. How long do you have to wait to drink it? mom
