This weekend, like many before it, was all about the Belgians. Saturday, Mark Anthony and I brewed a belgian blond that we will age on raspberries for a couple of weeks. "Allegement al la Framboise". I have made it before, or at least something very similar. My memories of it may be romanticized, but I think it was pretty excellent. Looking forward to it. And if memory serves me, the SWMBO likes it too.
Mark Anthony and I also did loads of brewery house keeping, checking on gravities, fining a batch of Kolsch, dividing the recent spoils of our efforts. The strawberry wine has dropped to under 1. It is sitting at .97. Next steps stabilize, degas, clarify, and then back sweeten. Then get some more going. I may make make the dragons blood everyone is talking about on my wine making forums. Scaling it down to a 1 gallon batch. Or if i get really adventurous, Ill make Mountain Dew Wine.(yes it's a thing, look it up)
