A quick one here, I just re-discovered Philosophy Bites. Good stuff! Here’s what I just listened to:

A bit on the light side, but good never the less.

As a bonus:

  • What is Quality for our Time? – Patagonia Quality Director with an amazing qoute: “Quality is about process”. This is something that should ring true for all GTD/Agile/Scrum/Lean/Process-people out there.


And so, after two weeks we’ll bottle. If you wonder why the bottles are in the oven, that’s where you sterilize them. And yes, the caps I’ll use are sterilized as well, as are the rest of the rest of the equipment.

Before we got here I added some sugar, 72 grams to be exact, to the brew. This will provide extra nourishment for the surviving yeast, so that when we open the first bottle on two weeks the yeast will have worked some more and produced a nice carbonation.

The FG (Final Gravity) ended up at 1017, which tells us that the ABV will be approximately 5.4%. So a bit lighter than the last batch.

Now, more waiting, but I’m looking forward to the first taste, it smelled wonderful!
