  6. I'm not brewing a new batch this weekend but I plan on bottling my first batch, an American Amber on Sunday evening. We finally have a few nights below freezing here in Phoenix so we plan on heading to the mountains this weekend to enjoy some cold weather and snow. Cheers and have a good brew day everyone!

    Oh, and no brewing for me.


    I brewed a DIPA last weekend, I'm gonna be cleaning up and packing up my garage and brewing stuff to move in 2 weeks.
  13. Brewing a sour with some East Coast Yeast Bug County! Very excited, I have 3 different beers planned with some ECY yeasts that I have... and somewhere in there another Pale Wheat Ale with Amarillo and Motueka hops. I have a busy 2 or 3 months ahead of me.

    I will also be transferring my dry stout (3.5%) to secondary to sit on some vanilla beans before kegging.

    Another installment of my continuing quest for the perfect German pils. No sparge step mash, FWH this time. Main things is it all needs to be done, cleaned and put away before the Niner game starts.

    Nothing for me. I just put a lovely IPA on tap this week that is going to get hit pretty hard this weekend. It currently is quite hazy from the dry-hops, just the way I like it.

    I've got 5 gallons of Dunkel planned for Sunday with wlp833 that will be a starter beer for 10 gallons of bock that I will be brewing in a couple of weeks.

    The Dunkel will be sort of SMaSH with Wyermann Munich and just a touch of carafa special III and a single charge of hallertauer at 60min.

    I've never made an all munich beer before and I'm super excited to see how this one turns out!

  19. I'm hoping to try my hand at a lambic. Going to perform my first turbid mash, but will probably cheat and add rice hulls just to cover myself. Also thinking about making a mild.

    Same here. Also, racking a cider into secondary, and stepping up some yeast for an imperial milk stout sometime next week.

  21. Transferred a Amber Ale (Fat Tire Clone) to secondary on Wednesday. Working nights all weekend and then making a overnight trip to Belgium for beer, so no weekend brewing. Plan on brewing either a IPA or Belgian Wit on Tuesday, but I might wait until next week.
  22. Racked three beers yesterday (Schwarzbier - tasting great, Belma Pale Ale - Interesting & BGSA - Tasted of apple cider, so I hit it with old ECY Brett 08 slurry). Saved the cakes for a Dopplebock & DIPA.

    I made Kimchi & a fermented hot sauce today (using my sour to start it) along with two unfermented hot sauces.

    Reminds me that I need to get stuff to brew another cider batch. My first ever was literally slurped down by my wife and inlaws last time. Could use 5g of it after I move to intice some labor help !

    Yep, the cider is more for my GF and wine friends than for me to drink, even though I enjoy it. I probably use more for cooking than I drink.

    Brewing a dubbel today as a celebration beer for my first grandchild on the way!

  31. Congrats! speaking of celebrating...

    Lots of firsts for me today. Brewed my first all grain (biab) today. First time brewing outdoors - new kettle, new burner. A celebration clone (Chinook/Cascade). Gravity came out at 1.062 instead of 1.067(5gal)... First time missing OG. Started with 7gal, lost one to the grain and another in the boil. Probably should have added DME when I tested it... Or regulated propane to boil more vigorously? At any rate, also first time making a starter... I put it in a carboy for primary (another first) so I can transfer it to the bucket for dryhops and bottling.

    Also bottled 2.5 gal of witbier and racked the other 2.5 gal onto apricot purée and brett-l. (that was my second ever batch. First time adding fruit. First time adding Brett.)

    Happy to have two things in glass that I can watch over the next few days/months.

    No brewing for me this weekend, but been working with Irish ale yeast for the first time. Really like it. Made HB42's irish ale recipe and it's great. Did it again subbing Apollo for the bittering hop and think that should be nice. A stout came out tasting like Guiness but I added a cup of Ezra bourbon to it and it's also nice.
    Currently have an English barleywine fermenting with Irish yeast using Apollo, Northen brewer, Amarillo and Willamette. And a Dopplebock and Maibock using Bavarian yeast. No fridge but the outside temps are cooperating just right for fermenting the lagers.
