Brewing Chelsea Dagger Again

Remember Chelsea Dagger?

Chelsea Dagger is the Fratellis song that gets played whenever the Blackhawks score a goal or win a game.

It is also a SheppyBrew Beer that I brewed after the Blackhawks won their 3rd Stanley Cup in 6 years.

It was one of those beers that really surprised me how much I loved it. The cluster hops really taste good in the light bodied lager.

So, I brewed it again this past Sunday.

I harvested the Mexican Lager Yeast from the Cubs Win Dunkel and made a starter with it on Saturday.

I got started a bit late for me. I got the mash going before heading off to church. The enzymes apparently don't need me around to do their thing.

Everything went well

No issues with the boil.

Used ice to chill down the wort to around 50F.

Yesterday morning, the ferment was well underway.

I will most likely be pushing this beer through pretty quickly. Now that things have started, I'll probably let the temperature rise as it wants to.

I'll let you know how it goes.

Keep an eye on the regular SheppyBrew Channels to see what is happening with this beer (and many others): SheppyBrew's Facebook Page; Sheppy's Twitter Feed;SheppyBrew's Instagram Page; and SheppyBrew's Website. Of course, don't forget to visit this blog often as well!

Go Bears! Go Blackhawks!
