For my birthday my GF got my grandmother/mom’s carrot cake recipe!!! I LOVE carrot cake!!! It’s different than normal carrot cakes in that is it really light. Well for a carrot cake (it’s no angle food cake).

So I had to move one of my babies today. It’s an Oud Bruin that I’m aging with some cherries. It was a little nerve wracking having to move it down to our house. Not to mention when someone swerved right in front of me while doing 70 mph on the interstate while it was raining.

My GF and my parents got me this for me bday! Even if my Auburn Tigers can’t give me a win on my bday this works! BTW it’s a bye week for Auburn so they can’t loose either.

Smoked beer is a fitting style for fall

I have only been saying this for years… 

I brew my Classic Rauchbier in the spring and let it lager over the summer. Well I let as much lager as I can because I REALLY like it. I then serve the last of it with pork BBQ for Thanksgiving. A plate of smokey BBQ and a smoked beer is a match made in a place better than heaven. 

We also made some fried chicken. I mean who doesn’t like fried chicken??? 

We let them soak in some buttermilk overnight and then coated them some some spices. I don’t remember what they were but that pretty standard for most of my cooking. We then coated them with flour and dusted off the extra flour. We then fried them. 

They came out great. Nice a moist with a great crispy coating. Like I said who doesn’t like fried chicken???

Baking some bread. It should be the last time in our apartment now that we are back from Emerald Coast Beer Fest. Dr. Pasteur did help me proof the yeast before adding it.

- We are not there yet. That was the beginning of the article. I’m sure there will be some post about it when that happens…

So I survived another Emerald Coast Beer Festival. We had a great time again this year. 

Even my GF got excited about serving beer to everyone. My beer didn’t float during the public festival but it did float during the brewers party.

An Oak Aged Yeti that I had been cellaring at our cabin in Colorado for a few years. I got several different versions of Yetis a few years ago and finally got around to drinking them while we were out there.

My brew club recently had their monthly meeting at Slice and Pint. It’s a small brew pub that is located right next to Emory University. They have a 10 barrel system that is crammed into a tiny space. They couldn’t get anything else in there if they wanted to.

A buddy of mine let me barrow his jockey box for the Emerald Coast Beer Festival. I did make sure it was good and clean before heading down.

I’m taking my Oatmeal Brown. Serving your homebrew to the general public is one of the coolest things a homebrewer can do!

While cooking the beef short ribs my GF asked if we could have a beer. She picked out a Liefmans Cuvee Brut that I had been cellaring for a while. She sure has come a long way from Michelob Ultra!!!
