My wife came home the other day and said "I stopped and got beer". I was excited until I saw that she picked up a 12 of Michelob Ultra and a Sam Adams sampler pack that was half Sam Adams light. It reminded me of being a little kid and getting excited when there was a long fly ball only to be immediately disappointed when the OF caught it for an out.

I stopped at Binny's on my way out of town today and was quite successful. Barrel aged Prairie Bomb in a bottle to take home (among others) and a glass of coconut Victory at Sea while I was there.

Normally don't care for fruity beers, but had a Saugatuck Blueberry Maple Stout, and the Blueberry-Stout combo definitely played well.

At a bar for the first time in awhile.

"Do you guys have any 3 Floyds on tap?"

*confused look*

"No, but we do carry things like Heineken and Blue Moon."

Did you go to a bar in 2002? I haven't seen a bar not priding itself on a beer list in like 10 years.

Some little bar in Lansing. I think the bar tender was just completely clueless because they had some founders on tap.

Has anyone tried the Sculpin Pineapple or Mango? I'm slightly intrigued. I love the grapefruit but I'm not sure how sweet those other flavors are going to be.

Had Sculpin Pineapple, and I love it. I like it better than regular. I havent had Mango, but mango in IPA works really well, especially with Citra hops.

Pineapple is very good. Haven't had Mango. I like Grapefruit the best. The Habanero is good, but can be pretty spicy so it's hard to drink too much.

A friend of mine just told me he went to Sculpin and, since they have all 3 on tap they mixed them together which he said was really good. Oddly enough, he didn't have the Mango itself either. Maybe I'll get some of that too.

I didn't care for it. Grapefruit Sculpin is good, regular Sculpin I don't care for either. I'm also not a big fan of Ballast Point, so it could be that.

I had Three Floyds YumYum for the first time last night. It was really really good. I think it's my second favorite of theirs behind Zombie Dust and slightly in front of Robert the Bruce.

Ive found it difficult to find a session IPA that I really like. For whatever reason most of the ones Ive had over the last couple years have a hop profile I just dont care for. Yum Yum was definitely one of the better ones.

Recently made my first homebrew, a maple porter. Turned out surprisingly well, though a little flat. Letting them carbonate in the bottles a little longer. Shocked it took me so long to brew on my own (I've helped some friends brew here and there previously).

It's always tempting to start drinking the homebrews quick, but that extra 1-2 weeks of carbonation is huge, I've found. I think the key is getting a brewing pipeline going so you can give the beer the right time to ferment and carbonate and not be tempted to rush the process.

3 weeks is my typical time for achieving good carbonation. Ill stick one in the fridge each week just to test the carbonation levels, but it usually always takes 3 weeks.

If you find that you are getting over-carbonation, chances are you arent leaving your beer in the primary long enough, so increase that by an extra week, and that should solve the problem.
