That keg looks like it would make a great bottler.

After my last boil,I pushed out what ever sweets I had left ,approximately 4 gallons and placed it in my fermenter, and now have a nice Maple Syrup wine brewing away. Its been going strong now for 3 weeks and I should be putting it in the carboy this week to finish it off.

It ended up being a lot more than we thought after we cut it down to a reasonable sugar content so there is alittle more than 15 gallons sitting in the carboys now. 5 weeks from now and we should have some results.

Well I had 2 cases of the frogs run porter dropped off at my house yesterday. My brother said it isn't quite ready yet and should sit for about 2 weeks yet.............yeah right, like that's going to happen. 3 hours in the fridge and popped it open. It is very dark, has nice carbination and thick head. It tastes great! Somewhat sweet, earthy, and all the grains pulled together well.
