Beer homebew bottles Tijuana Steamer steam bear California common

Tijuana Steamer is bottled and conditioned. It turned out well. The math puts it somewhere around 6%, but it's quite smooth. Notable variations were the addition of about a pound of corn sugar to the wort. Reracked at one week, fermented for three.

Today I brewed Malk Stout(a milk stout), Steve did a honey wheat. Original gravity is 1.068, so not far off TJS. Did a pound of lactose, with some more to come when I rerack.

Kirkwood Village ski in ski out

This year's ski trip was to Kirkwood. Since things were a bit tricky last year, I went ahead and got a slopeside condo. No driving, no shoveling, no high centering, no digging.

There wasn't much of a base, but we got snow the second day (as is tradition).
