Big Townie Brown sees the light of day

I pulled the barrel up from the crawlspace on Friday and kegged the Big Townie Brown that was in it. It had been in there for about 6 months. It tastes strong (~13%), sweet, and woody. It's almost like a port...delicious, but maybe for just one in a sitting....unless your Micah.
I also finally got around to making Moxie some dog treats out of the spent brewing grain from the wet hop harvest ale batch. I got the recipe from my friends Jason and Melissa:
  • 6 c spent grain
  • 6 c flour
  • 1.5 c peanut butter
  • 3 eggs
  • 2 bananas
  • Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour and then dry for 3-5 hours afterward at 200 degrees
Moxie loves these, they are like crack for dogs!
