Bergman Baltic Porter and Sunset Blvd Cali Common are on their way to the National Homebrew Competition. I’ve never competed on a stage this large before and I’m a bit worried about how two pseudo-lagers will travel in these temps (it’s about 70 degrees out today), but the experience and possible crushing disappointment should be a good character building moment for me.

Got two 2nd place trophies at Homebrew Alley 6. Won for my ridiculously delicious Bergman (Baltic Porter) and my sorta different but good Sunset Blvd (Cali Common)

A letter to my Baltic Porter

Dear Baltic Porter,

I think you are dreamy. You are a buffet of chocolate, creamy, burnt cocoa, lightly boozy goodness. If man could be joined in holy matrimony with beer, I would propose to you right now. I will be so sad when you are gone though I will thoroughly enjoy drinking you.

I’m sending you to two competitions and it makes me so jealous that strangers will get to taste you too. I want to fight them. Don’t you ever change.

Sincerely,

SSBC

Lagering Version 3.0. The Sunset Boulevard (California Common) and Bergman (Baltic Porter) sitting in a tupperware basin of ice water. I’m using the tshirt evaporation trick and the occasional fan to help keep the temp at 50 while the California Lager yeast works. It’s surprisingly effective.

And yes, the carboy on the left is wearing a True Blood tshirt.
