Seeing the Light

At the NHC in Denver, I learned about using gelatin to fine my beer. It's taken me almost five months to actually do it.

I tried it in a California Common kit a couple of weeks ago, which I kegged on 11/26. It was a gorgeous beer. Sparkling and bright. And it tasted good too! On the 26th, I added 1/2 teaspoon of gelatin to 1/2 cup of hot water, and added it to the Peppercorn Rye-Bock. I was talking to my buddy at Honey Creek Brewery (the name I use to refer to his barn where we brew), and he said, "That just sounds delicious." I conceded the point and confessed I was eagerly anticipating getting it into a keg.

Well, I kegged it on the 1st!
