More Ginger Kombucha
Well back in February, I made some Ginger Kombucha.
I liked it. It needed some carbonation, but other than the lack of carbonation, I really liked it.
More recently, I made Ginger Beer. It was a little too sweet for my taste, but it was nicely carbonated.
Last week, I decided try Ginger Kombucha again.

Pressure Transfer 0 for 2
Well ... I'm 0 for 2 on pressure transfers.
The first failure (Pressure Fermentation (sort of) Fail) was really a bone-headed mistake. Really I wasn't paying attention to what I was doing.
My second failure doesn't make much sense to me. I know how I'm going to adjust next time, but I'm not sure why this time was as bad as it was.
Anyway ... I brewed No Drums Jack Black Lager (Batch 331) on March 26th. Fermentation started off great. I was seeing signs of fermentation very quickly.
This time I set the spunding pressure to 20psi. I think this was my mistake. I should have had a lower pressure so carbonation wasn't so high during the eventual transfer.

2023 Q1 SheppyBrew Stats
Here it is ... already April, which means that the first quarter of 2023 is done. It's time to report on the SheppyBrew Brewing Stats for the quarter.
I keep claiming that I will brew less beer in 2023 than I did last year, but so far I have not slowed down. At all.
Last year, in Q1, I had brewed 5 batches, 30 gallons.
This year so far I've brewed 6 batches for 31 gallons.

Hostile Takeover of SheppyBrew
The beer model has been plotting with big beer to execute a hostile takeover of SheppyBrew Brewery.
Shocking, I know. I feel like I've been stabbed in the back.
