I declare the double IPA a success(7.6% ABV)! It's still got a little suspended hops in it from the dry hopping, but hopefully after an evening of settling I can just pour the sediment off the bottom in one pour. Other than that, it's the bomb! Yay!

Last night we went to a friend's house for a birthday party. This is the friend that inspired me to pick up brewing again and inspired the keggerator. We had a great time. It was kind of a German-themed party because the birthday girl is from Germany. I asked what I could bring and they told me a salad. Well, I couldn't figure out any German salad to make so I made my standard antipasta-type salad. Then I felt weird and decided to make potato pancakes off the hip. I thought they turned out ok, never having made them before, but after an hour or so at the party people started talking about them saying how good they were. One person told me they thought that the German woman's mother had made them because they were so delicious and authentic. I just sat there with a huge grin soaking it all up. What a great feeling. Anyway, the party was fun and this guy can brew like a master, so there's always great brews to drink.

lol, I guess that does sound kind of sexual. Maybe like something that would happen to you in prison. ;)
