Pike Creek Pale Ale


Today I went over to my buddy Garrett’s house and we brewed a 10 gallon batch of a Pale Ale together. Not that this beer won’t be good, but essentially we brewed this beer as a giant starter for a 10 gallon batch of Barleywine we plan on brewing in like 3 weeks or so. The brew day actually went pretty smoothly, only real troubles we ran into were the mash briefly got stuck and there was a lot of break material in the kettle. I also got to try some new beers Garrett had available including a Mango Witbier (Mango Mama), a Robust Stout (Choking Sun Stout) and a DIPA (Hopacalypse), an English Bitter (Horizon Bitter) and the newest rendition of an Oaked Aged Vanilla Porter. Please feel free to correct me if I got any of the names wrong or left out any of the goodies. Regardless, I am already looking forward to brewing the Barleywine.
