Shadow Warrior 3

For the last six or so months, I've been whining that all of my Shadow Warrior was gone.  I also kept telling myself that the next time I brew, it will be Shadow Warrior. Today was the day.

It was a muggy, cloudy day. Although I had planned to start at 8 am, the sky looked too foreboding, so I waited until 9 am.

I've been playing with the recipe for a few years now.  The first time, I used 10 pounds of light DME to bump this bad boy up. The second time, I used seven pounds. This time, after a successful all-grain Brown Shugga, I thought I would try to get more grain in the mash tun.

I brewed Dirk's Elixir as a starter, and added a vial of WLP 001 just for good luck.

It was a long day. I finally finished brewing, well, cleaning, about 4 pm.  I was tired and sticky and, even though I was not going to have beer tonight (I'm on a diet), I succumbed to some Lagunitas IPA.  Next brew day? Dirktastic!
