Hi there brewfans! Today I did a major cleaning of my kegerator and kegged my "Belgian mild." FG came out around 1.009, so we'll have a nicely dry, drinkable Belgian session ale that comes out just under 4% abv. The flavor is really nice (I'll give some tasting notes once it is carbonated and flowing from the tap). Additionally, with the low abv, you can basically drink this beer all day long without losing your mind. Should be carbonated and ready in a day or two, so if you find yourself in or near central NJ, come and enjoy a pint with me! I will be brewing up another batch soon, and while I originally planned a Belgian IPA, I'm going back and forth on what I really want next. More updates on that to come.

In other news, I also got some critical keg cleaning done today and discovered that my kegerator and the beer inside it had completely frozen solid. This was probably because I did not open the fridge very often, so I'm now defrosting the kegerator and the poor, lost, frozen keg so we can get the kegerator functioning and get some tasty Belgian mild flowing in a couple of weeks.
