Bock (Name TBD)


What better way to spend a cold Sunday in February than by warming up the house with some brewing? We sold all our brew gear when we left Santa Fe (Tristan still hasn't forgiven me). A few weeks ago we scored a carboy at a flea market, and so our home brewery is up and running again. It's hard for me to believe, but it's been over a year since our last batch of beer. This one is an American Bock, and it's our first lager, which needs cool temperatures to ferment properly, making it a perfect winter brew. It will ferment in our cool basement at around 55 degrees F.

All homebrews need a good name. What should we name our bock?

Bock Obama?

P.S. I've seriously never seen a kitchen hood as clean as that one. :D

Good ones! Wish I could claim responsibility for the cleanliness of the hood--our place came with a brand new kitchen! It's only a matter of time, I'm afraid...

Bock to the Future!

Since your blog is called Whittled Down and you had to whittle down your brewing operation, why not call it The Whittled Down Brew?
