Brew Day Yesterday

Brewed a Belgian Blonde yesterday.  Here it is in the kettle….

It’s a beautiful wort, about 5 SRM in color, clear, dead on my predicted gravity.  The finished beer will be darker, courtesy of a batch of candi syrup I made.  The starter had a sweet Belgian funk to it, one I look forward to in the finished beer.  I do like this style, having tried Ommegang’s version while in Texas.

In other fermented news, wife’s Gewurztraminer is delicious, clear and bright.  Summer contest season is beginning, I’ll be entering brews in several.  Up tomorrow, how I made that candi syrup.
