Connect Tip to TX

Here is the hack I used. He said he got the tx and rx backwards and he corrected himself but it was backward for me. So it may depend on your meter.

Bottled Dunkel

Posted under Personal

Bottled Dunkel (german dark lager). It was supposed to be an amber bock, but it came out to dark. So, it’s a dunkel. It’s got a very traditional beer taste with hints of roasted malt and coffee.

Beer Jam

Posted under Good Food

Made it with a hoppy braggot (5lb honey, 1lb dark dme, hops). Taste just like the braggot. Slightly sweet. Just when you think it’s going to be bitter, it’s not. I thought the citra hops would make it citrus-y, but in combo with northern brewer it said, “Beer!” I really liked the recipe. Only a month left of lagering for the braggot to finish.

My final recipe for 7 Pints:
7 x 12oz bottles of brew. (10.5 cups)
3/4 vinegar
5 3/4 cups sugar
2 1/2 packs of pectin

Chocolate mint wine

Posted under Home Brew

Chocolate mint wine. The mint was too strong, kind of taste like an off brand thin mint where you can barely taste the chocolate cause the mint is so strong. Less mint leaves next time
