I'd do third or fourth for a label. Don't have a sticker printer... that's purchase like, number six or so on the list at the new place.

I just changed careers myself! No more McDonalds. I manage an apartment building now, because my auntie does and also nepotism. Free rent in LA is a deal and I get another like, 1500 or so a month on top of that. Pretty sweet gig.

Cleaning coal furnaces seems cool. How common are those where you live?

Skews slightly fruitier and sweeter than the last time I made this- either down to different temps while it was fermenting or the fact that I used a different brand of honey. Hard to say. I should get a lagering fridge.

Changing jobs right now and my schedule is generally hectic so not sure when I'm going to start another batch... gimme a month, maybe.

I worked that day... so I really only saw Youtube April Fools. Mythical Kitchen and Babish had good April Fools vids up I remember.

I might have just needed more of it, or I might need to put the fruit additions later in the process, where fermentation won't affect the flavor so much. Hard to say. It's not even bad I was just being a bitch tbh. It tastes very like... normal. Like if you got some low-to-mid price beer you hadn't heard of before, you wouldn't be surprised if it was the taste of Island Milk in there.

This is the stuff I'm doing right now. No big recipe/picpost because this is a repeat of my favorite recipe so far- "Umbral Brew", the blueberry pomegranate cider from the dual batch I made a while ago. I figured after an experiment that didn't go my way, I might as well make something I'm confident I'll like. I think I might go for another mead or a wine next- some other experiment in a different vein. Maybe something with berries.

Beer's bottled. Looks beery tastes beery. EH. Not fruity!

Mostly given away. People say it's good, but most people do if you give them free beer.

Got the stuff to make a repeat of Umbral Brew, that pomegranate blueberry cider from a while ago, but a 3-gallon batch of it. Expect that soon.

I'm not sure! This is a bit of an experiment, I've done a cursory search and banana is not very popular in the homebrew space. Maybe because it floats and is a mold risk, although I didn't get any fuzz. But if it is just a pineapple beer then that will be fine.

I was literally trying to workshop a Donkey Kong name. Pineapple Peel isn't bad. I'll ultimately decide on something final when I taste the product, I think. Should just be a couple more days.

I don't think so? I looked it up, I don't recognize it. I'll give it a try if I ever see it around, though.

Never been much of a decorator. We used to have a framed picture up above the sink, for... some reason. The side of the apartment that doesn't have my brother and me in it is kind of barren, honestly.

Also, the beers are bottled! I didn't take pics of the syrup I made so the yeast will carbonate- oops- and I still don't have a good name for the pineapple-banana beer. Brainstorm has included: Bunching Up, Going Bananas (so cliche it hurts), Banana-Pineapple Blast (like a gushers flavor),

I suspect it tastes different from before, but I didn't taste it! We shall see how it is in a weekish.

...and a separate post for secondary!

It's a pineapple banana beer! Maybe it's going to be ****ty! Maybe it won't! There's no better way to tell than gambling with five gallons of product.

Additions (Frozen TJ's bananas and Dole pineapple juice):

And a bonus shot of the pale-tan yeastcake (I probably should have tried making bread with it):

Without any additions, and flat, it tastes pretty underwhelming. I'm not sure if I'd use this American Cream Ale kit again. I would call it "Coors-Banquetesque". Hopefully it's better after sitting with some fruit. We'll see! Will bottle when I buy some more sanitizer and bottles, a week or so.
