This past Saturday I decided I had time to brew, and I was able to make this last minute decidision, using one the new Wyeast Activator packs. I had planned this recipe loosely based on Santa's Private Reserve, a hoppy, red ale from the Rogue Breiwng Company of Newport, Oregon. The brewing process went pretty well, except for forgetting to add hops to the mash. That's okay, because I just add them to the first runnings of my partial mash. I'm not sure what to call the recipe yet, but I'll be posting updates as the Blogger interface allows.
