Those of you who were around this site last year may recall that, rather than shaving off my beard and regrowing it, I instead chose to brew a beer during the playoffs with the eventual aim of using it to toast victory. The beer turned out just fine but, sadly, was imbibed a little sooner than planned.  Oh well.

 

I’m going for a repeat performance this year and so, last night, the V pro Victoria IPA was dragged kicking and screaming into the world. The bugger should be hoppy as all get-out, but if it’s not where it should be, I’ll dry-hop it.

All went smoothly and it’s in the FV..  no activity yet, but I’m a dumbass who didn’t take the yeast out of the fridge early enough, so it’s likely pretty sluggish.

More as progress continues.

Let’s go, Hawks
