The wasp starter grew a pellicle despite being hopped. It smells quite fruity with some lactic in the background. I'll probably cook up a larger starter for it this weekend.

So last night, someone on Milk the Funk posted about brewer's yeast surviving winter in the wild by hiding out in wasp queen's stomachs, and then being passed onto her progeny in the spring. Kind of interesting. Then today I just happened to find a live wasp hiding out on my smoker. Also today I just happened to have to make some starters for a brew day on Saturday. I'm taking this all as a sign from God that this wasp needs to end up in a yeast starter. #wildyeastftw #milkthefunk #homebrew  Here's a link to the wasp thing: http://www.pnas.org/content/109/33/13398.short

+Tyler Ward and I Dry hopped a bunch of bottles of coors light with 11 different varieties of hops. Here are my impressions of them.
Dry hop run down. February 5th, 2016. A member of my homebrew club brought a ton of hops to our Christmas party in January to give out and I went home with three good sized bags of hops. Two of which were Chinook, which I really dislike when used for bittering. I mentioned on twitter that I ...

Snuck a taste of the solera saison: Funk and oak in the nose with a slight aroma of feet in the background. Very mild lactic tartness on the tongue, heavy brett funk. Thin mouthfeel with a mild hop bitterness at the end.

It is quite delicious.

Interesting theory; it makes some sense.
By assailing sensible conservatives as sexists, racists, and imbeciles, they paved the way for a jackass who embodies their worst fears.

Perhaps, but I'd recommend you pray about it, asking God to right the wrong.

+Ray Kodiak I designed them myself and had them printed off at the UPS store on their color laser printer. I cut them out with a paper cutter at the store and am sticking them on with milk.

+Dan Saunders it's definitely rewarding and educational. I've learned a ton, tasted a bunch of delicious beers and made some good friends.
