It's lovely to see a good boil. I'm confident that this batch will be awesome. (I shall post the recipe in a future post. ...shh, it's a stock Northern Brewer recipe...)
While we were at it, we transferred a cider from The Bucket of Truth. It's been in primary for more than a year. It's delicious. Now it's on oak.
The curious thing is that something so subtlely good can come from a vessel that looks so wrong. We expected failure, but it tasted so good that we almost just put the Tripel into the bucket.
To finish off the day we went to Sean's and bottled 10 gallons of gluten-free beer. It went really fast with 4 people, and it tastes pretty good.
