Monthly Archives: June 2012

On June 24th we brewed a single decoction Oktoberfest and a Bitburger Clone with popcorn.

The popcorn pilsner was inspired by Sun King Brewery ‘s pilsner that we tried at the Firestone Walker Invitational Brew Fest a couple of weeks ago.  It was a fantasticly easy beer to drink.

2 lbs of popcorn in the mashtun is a new experience.

We added a 14.8 cubic foot refrigerator to our brewery, adding 200% more fermentation capacity.  Woo Hoo!

German Pils with Popcorn


On June 17th, we brewed our Kolsch and pale ale.  Repeats of winner beers we have done in the past.

We failed to take photos so not much to look at.  Things went very smoothly.

Our National Homebrewers Competition awards arrived.  Four Bronze, one Silver and one Gold.  The silver (Pilsner) and gold (Kolsch) move on to the final round.


We need to ship bottles to Seattle this week for the final round.
