2014 continues to be slow going at the brewery. You may remember that in Q1, I brewed only 4 times. Well, in Q2, I brewed only 3 times, and didn't brew at all in June. Pathetic.
Last year, by this time, I had brewed 11 batches for 57 gallons. Obviously, my pace is slower this year.
None of these three are new recipes, so as predicted, I am not anywhere close to being on pace for the 14 new recipes last year. I'm ok with that. In fact, my goal was to brew some of the old favorites this year.
I brewed no lagers this quarter, so T.RA.SH. Mexican Lager is still the only lager of 2014 so far.
All my batches so far this year have been "all-grain". All my batches last year were all-grain as well. I don't expect to do many extract or partial mash recipes ever again, but you never know. At one point in June I thought I might do an extract beer just to get a brew day in, but I never got around to it.
All of my batches so far this year have been kegged. Last year 18 of the 21 batches were kegged. I don't know if I will bottle any whole batches this year. Probably not. I will bottle a few from most batches, but I expect most of the batches will be mostly consumed out of a keg.
