Figures… in an exhibit dedicated to transformation, our time slot has shifted! Didn’t you expect that? The fellow is taking the day off work and we’ll be keeping “brewers’s hours”… we’re brewing an all-grain batch inside the gallery (yay! should be toasty in there!) from 6am till approximately 2pm tomorrow to coincide with the afternoon installation schedule. The gallery is at 3114 W. Carroll Ave; look for the 24hrs/25days sign on the chainlink gate east of the building… the gallery door is in the back.

We’ll be back in the evening for the alligator performance, and you can visit the beer there or at our studio (not sure yet where it will be fermenting? Depends on the temperature in the gallery… it’s a perfect 62 in our studio right now).

We made three eherlenmeyer flasks of starter culture last night with three different yeast blends, so if you want to join in the fun, bring in a clean gallon jug or carboy, an airlock and stopper if you have them, and some sort of sugary liquid to ferment! Tej (Ethiopian honey wine)? Mead? Cider? Cyser? Funky fruit wines? Jailhouse hooch? Let us know if you’re bringing something and if you need a vessel or airlock! The starters are whirling away on their stir-plates and making millions of billions of yeast babies that are ready to get to work!
