I am happy to report that after about a month in the shop, my precious Mustang has been returned to me. Her first trip back? To the homebrew store, of course. I’m between minutes 90 and 60 of the boil, so I figured I’d throw a quick update on the blog.
Today I’m brewing an American Amber Ale. This is my first time trying this style. The brew is called “Uncommon Wrath.”
Is there not some chosen curse, some hidden thunder in the stores of heaven, red with uncommon wrath, to blast the man who owes his greatness to his country’s ruin!
– Joseph Addison
I thought that quote was appropriate given the current state of the American government. But less politics, more beer! The recipe is up on BrewToad; and I’m hoping this turns out well. I’m hoping to bottle up my Marzen/Oktoberfest (Spirit’s Foe) tomorrow between the the Patriots game and my first hockey game of the season.
