Old MILFwaukee Brew Day

A few weeks ago, I was fed up with dark beer. Fed UP, I tell you! So I decided to rebrew the classic Old MILFwaukee Blonde Ale recipe.

Brew with rice to keep the body in hourglass shape, and wheat for good head.  As soon as I come up with more sexual inuendos, I will bore you stupid with them! And if Satan ever decides to open The Brass Pole, the first combination brew pub and titty bar, this will be our flag ship beer. Well, it will be if it turns out. I'll be kegging this on May 19.

It was a glorious brew day! A small cold front had blown through Paradise, a welcome respite from the hot and humid previous week. When I started brewing it was in the 50s! Aaah!
