So, I've been drinking (and sharing) Wool Sweater. Pretty good winter warmer.
The first few I tried were drinkable, but not quite ready, even though it had been the 2-3 week bottle conditioning period. It took about 6-8 weeks for the flavor to develop all the way.
I've also been sharing with a group of friends we made here. We have "Beer Club Friday" which means we all get together at someone's house, bring food and beer, and hang out. Nearly everyone in the group has kids, most in the toddler/preschool age group. A couple are still tiny babies, a few are old enough to be in school. Kids get to play with kids, grown-ups get to socialize with grown-ups. For the most part the kids get a room or somewhere outside to play and the adults look on as they chat with each other.
Wool Sweater is nearly gone, so time to get brewing again. Especially now that I have a group to share with. Of course, it's gotten too warm for me to use the back room as a fermenting room. But lucky me, for Mother's Day Doug got me a used refrigerator to be stored in the garage, just for brewing! It's the size of our fridge/freezer combo upstairs, but it is all fridge. Meaning room for at least two fermenters plus beer storage!
