New brew day on the roof here at the Eataly NYC Birreria. Teo, Leo , and I perused the Eataly store aisles this morning. An ingredient-inspiration walk about. We've decided to do a 7% abv amber ale with ugli fruit, fresh grated Ginger, and Two kinds of Italian honey.

Today Bryan, Jason, Todd (as in The Alstrom Brothers of Beer Advocate fame) and I are Brewing the Extreme Beer Fest in Rehoboth. Floris whipped up a batch of house-acidified Carapils that went into the mash.
