OK.. not beer related...but smoked pork wasn't ready by dinner time so we had smoked chicken thigh sandwiches for dinner...smoked pork just now ready and it's great. Some of the best pulled pork I've ever made. Knew there was a good chance that it wouldn't be ready in time for dinner when I slept later than usual this morning. But needed the sleep. Sleeping late led to not doing my usual BBQ spice coating and just going with salt and pepper which worked well coupled with the 12 hours of apple wood smoking.

I accidentally bought 3 lbs. of LME instead of DME, so I made a 9 quart batch today instead of my usual 5.

3 lbs. pale LME
2 oz. dark DME
4g cascade hops 60 min.
5g cluster hops 20 min.
6g citra hops 2 min.

1 tsp yeast nutrient

8g US-05 yeast

SG 1.045 so should be just under 6% alcohol.

Opened the one bottle of that wine I started in December that I put in a PET bottle so it would carbonate.

Not bad, fairly standard white wine taste, massive carbonation.  Would probably have exploded a glass bottle, the plastic bottle was as hard as glass.



My latest batch of beer is in the fridge, last week I tried one bottle and it was pretty good, should be even better now.
