The “Yuengling like” lager is done. It’s more a cross between Yuengling and Sam Adams. The ABV is higher, 5.6, and it’s about 26 IBU. I used 9.5% of the grain bill for maize. You can taste that at the end.

I lagered for about three months. Now I want a separate chest freezer for lagering. Don’t think Janice will go for that!

Since the Terps are once again not in the NCAA tournament I’m more interested in the Washington Post’s beer bracket of “local” beers. I don’t get out as much as I used to I guess; I’ve only had eight of the beers listed. I also don’t understand why the Dogfish Head 60 Minute is in the bracket. It’s not brewed here. I guess because of the two local Dogfish Head restaurants.
