Sasquatch Red & OSP Pale Ales

The Sasquatch Red has a great malty caramel flavor balanced by the Northern Brewer hops and the Willamette hops give a very herbal, woody, and earthy aroma. I think I will brew this again in a few weeks but add just 1/8 lb roasted barley to darken it up a little and to give the flavor profile a tad bit of roast.

The Oregon State Parks Pale Ale flavor profile is what I wanted it to be its has a woods, almost evergreen flavor to it brought out by the Northern Brewer and Willamette hops. The aroma is a mild floral citrus from the Cascade hops. Overall a very good beer. I'm excited to see how well they both compete  at the Oregon Gardens Homebrew Competition in a few weeks.

So I will be getting this kegerator in about a week:

It will hold one 1/2 barrel keg or two 5 gallon corny kegs. I intend on it holding the two 5 gallon kegs, one will be a commercial and the other homebrew. I know that it only has one tap and I have thought of that. If I were to buy a unit with a second tap I would be looking at another $250 at least, and if I were to buy a new tower I would be looking at $130. So,I will modify the tower that it comes with so I can add a second tap, costing about $40-$45 using this to modify it:
I will post through out the process!
