So i’ve been collecting some new brew gear, some of my new toys are:

Last night we (@leftmostcat and i) put together a Coffee Stout entitled “Black Cat Stout.” It called for two packets of yeast, and because I’ve recently decided that I don’t trust my plastic bucket for fermentation i’m doing primary in a 5 gallon carboy.  I should have known that this batch was going to be pretty active and so I’ve had some fun times cleaning up from a blow off. I’m hoping that this batch will be the first home brew to grace the kegerator.
