    Waiting on Mark Pasquinelli’s pumpkin ale to bottle carbonate. One more week and I can sample that. Got some mild brown ale left over that I have occasionally.

    It’s an imperial stout. He mentioned it when he brewed it.

    Lol he beats to his own drum. I have a general idea of what everyone brews on here so I’m abnormal. I know you brew a variety but also I know you for your peach nectarine blossom yeast. Skelce is gluten free ect.

    For sure. Just confusing sometimes, like, you just rattled off 5 names of beers you made that give no clue to what the beer is... only time on here that worked was when what's his face kept rebrewing the 20+% ABV Imperial Stout with the gnome pictures...

    Bingo. That was pretty much the only time someone could just drop the name of their homebrew in this thread and not confuse the hell out of people.

    so much to discuss here,,,,,,,,,,,,,,beat my own drum????? Im a guitar player so in the future say " blows up amps"! @stealth is the man and i miss his posts. never made his 20% brews but did get to 15.5. the english King is a RIS made with all english ingrediants with the exception of chico which came from Hawaii.
    @jbakajust1 try keeping up with your cooking shots!!! I love them but sometimes you are using stuff i cant grow.

    Still banging away at this keg of Oktoberfest. The tastiness of the dark munich is really coming through. @JackHorzempa I believe this is the malt that gives victory brewing the flavor profile we discussed. With it being a bit more subtle i quite enjoy it

    Just tapped my English Porter... Must admit, easily the best porter/stout I have ever done. Completely nailed every aspect of what I want in this style... It's phenomenal! Won't change a single thing in this one next time.

    OG: 1.062
    FG: 1.022
    5.3% ABV, 45 IBU

    Latest IPA, hopped with Simcoe and Mosaic. West coast grist and yeast and NE-style late hopping. Digging it without apology for the lack of OJ appearance!

    Love the concept. How’s it drinking? What you wanted?

    It doesn't suck. And it's pretty much what I was aiming for, i.e. what a sour patch kid might taste like if they did a creamsicle flavor. I may have to do a non-sour version too. Maybe on a non-hoppy blonde base.

    Still undercarbed and unfined but damn tasty. Rahr 2Row, Demera Sugar, Styrian Bobek, and my Nectarine Blossom yeast. 8.9%, pepper, nutmeg, pear, lemon, peach, and alcohol. This BGSA rivals Duvel. And just think, 5 gallons went into a 3rd use Balcones barrel...

    Kicked the grisette saison keg. Starting in on the cream ale, which now may be considered on tap, following copious troubleshooting of a clogged keg line.

    Bonus content: I made coq au vin for dinner, subbing black currant mead for vin. Honestly, when all is said in done, with salt, pepper, braising, etc., you might not even notice. Regardless, delicious dinner dish. Since this mead is in the kick-in-the-teeth-don't-wake-me-in-the-morning strength range, I'm finding the only thing to do with it is dilute it in cooking (or in sangria -- that was a big hit). Previously used it for chicken marsala (today's lunch).

    1 year in the cellar has mellowed the alcohol but not the peppers. Chocolate, bourbon, caramel, and burn... damn tasty... you can smell the heat!

    Im drinking my first beer from my new keg setup. It's a variation of the averagely perfect IPA, but with mosaic, simcoe and cascade and more of the hops moved towards the end and post boil. It tastes a bit like ... not spending 3 hours bottling:-)

    First taste of a Galaxy/Mosaic/Nelson IPA. Really fruity, dry hopped the heck out of it. Just enough bitterness. Love this combo, thanks to everyone who offered suggestions![​IMG]
