Chris and I have been busy learning to brew beer since June, that definitely explains the lack of posts for Summer 08 from me. This Friday, Halloween, we’re going to serve our first kegged beer, The Terrorist Fist Jab Milk Stout. This beer was the fifth batch we brewed. I really wanted to make a milk stout, in honor of my favorite Keegan Ales brew, Mother’s Milk. We brewed this on 8/16/08. On 8/23/08 we moved it to secondary. The Milk Stout was kegged it on 8/30/08.
