Beer Updates
Thanks to everyone who came out to J.R. Bentley’s in
Arlington last Friday night, it was a huge success!  The saison and porter were both big hits with

Quick Update
After serving my two week sentence training at Fort

Diacetyl, Plus Some Tips for New Homebrewers
I haven’t had much experience with diacetyl in my beers.  I’ve only brewed one lager, and that’s generally when you see diacetyl, because of the lower fermentation temperatures, and I allowed for a good diacetyl rest on the lager I did do, so I didn’t have ...
