Who would be up for seeing the Micro Piglets create a Spring hefeweizen next?

I’m thinking of using some leftover orange caramel made over Easter with either an apricot or habanero twist. Anyone into that idea?

So Professor Piglet and Rumplestiltspig taste the Biere de Garde 3-4 weeks after bottling and it might just be the best beer we’ve ever made. 

That’s quite a statement, especially when I realized that I actually forgot to put the priming sugar in when I bottled it. My first thought (as is probably yours) that there was residual sugar left in the wort and therefore it simply carbonated. Definitely true (although FG was 1.009) but I think also it’s my small apartment and the fact I have to store my beer at 70F. Warmer beer = more carbonation. Still, it’s carbonated perfectly, crystal clear and dry as a bone.

Imagine when the micro piglets move to a bigger place… Kegerators and temperature control, is it too much to dream? So Professor Piglet and Rumplestiltspig taste the Biere de Garde 3-4 weeks after bottling and it might just be the best beer we’ve ever made.

This is a great event. More people should take part. Great that the micro pigs got a mention too!

At the Pride of Brooklyn Homebrew Competition yesterday, having fun, laughs and even an interview with Village Voice. 

Although no prizes this time, there were some truly excellent beers at the competition.  However, the Pale English Mild got a great reception with several people asking me if they could buy the beer. Flavours from the Jaggery Sugar and Golden Syrup really shone through. Lucky really because I didn’t have time to even try the beer before I arrived!

There was only one drama during the event. Rumplestiltspig was stolen from the stand… After a confrontation and quick negotiations, Rumple was returned, unharmed and in good spirits. 

These events can be rewarding, yet dangerous for a Micro Piglet. At the Pride of Brooklyn Homebrew Competition yesterday, having fun, laughs and even an interview with Village Voice.

Pride of Brooklyn Homebrew Competition starts today. The Micro Piglets are ready to serve our new English Mild, Rumpled Pigskin.

Pumped!

Goodbye Pacific Northwest. #PNW

A quick stop at Bale Breaker Brewing for a quick flight of their Pale Ale, IPA and DIPA. 

Legolas the two legged piglet says drinking at a brewery that’s based Ina hop field in Yakima is ok with him. We agree and that pale ale is a quality brew. A quick stop at Bale Breaker Brewing for a quick flight of their Pale Ale, IPA and DIPA.

Legolas strikes out for the breweries of Ballard, Seattle. 

First stop Ruben’s Brews and then on to Stoup for a second round. If you’re going to Seattle head straight to Ruben’s, sitting in their tiny brewery is a great experience.

Legolas the two legged piglet gets to try his first Seattle beers at the cabin. Kernite this hop is a pretty serious IPA, quite close to Firestone’s Pale 31.
