    First true long aged sour beer. Made a bunch of beers with Brett but nothing with bacteria other than kettle sours. Primary was 34/70 fermented warm. Pitched a combo of Russian River, Jolly Pumpkin, and Hill Farmstead dregs and let it sit for 17 months. Added some medium toast French oak for the last two months. PH was around 3.1 at bottling.

    Did a terminal acid shock starter for the first time and wow did it work well. 18 days in and fully carbed and zero THP!!! Needs more time for sure but stoked that it carbonated so quickly.

    First taste of my kveik pseudo-lager, 6 days after brewing:

    Super clean, slight hop bite, plenty of malt character. Can't wait to see how it tastes after a few weeks of keg conditioning.

    Blood Orange N3IPA. Tried wheat/oat malts instead of flakes and 13 ozs of hops to play around with bio transformation .Slightly bitter and very juicy. The A38 yeast is good stuff.

    Ordinary bitter (with rye). I'm getting a metallic twang on the finish, making me wonder about iron in my well again.

    It’s been a while since I cracked one of my grapefruit Berliner Weissbiers. It comes across as less acidic, but with more body, than I remember. Could Brett c. be responsible ?

    My Hefe Weissen. Today I learned that 3 TBS of Coriander for a five gallon batch makes me happy.

    Coriander, eh? I wouldn't be surprised if a Belgian Witbier would make you even happier.

    Spiced ale, circa Nov 2018
    Cinnamon predominant but not overpowering, ginger and clove undertones.
    When young it was plagued with a fusel taste, which has now subsided considerably.

    6:36 is beer time!

    March 2019….pleasantly surprised how well this has held up, perhaps attributable to 8 oz. of hops?
    DME with a bit (10%) of Crystal 20L
    Pacific Jade, Idaho 7, Amarillo in whirlpool. Idaho 7 dry hop, S-04

    [​IMG] Stout I brewed in October. After primary fermentation I added 2LBS of toasted coconut and Bourbon barrel wood chips that had soaked in Woodruff Rye bourbon for a week. The coconut shines and the bourbon is faint. Seems like I get a banana aroma when sniffed. Overall I’m happy with it. Cheers

    Batch i made cleaning out the grain box with 13 different grains/adjuncts. There was no love in this one so it only came out subpar. Also got lazy and bottled from the fermentor with sugar cubes.

    On a cold and rainy night, an English barleywine aging since fall 2016 is absolutely on target. I'm surprised how much of the hop character has hung on, but the dark fruit notes are definitely the star of the show.

    We drink Busch lite during brewing season, dont know why, just prefer it.

    When in college we had a nice kegerator. It was built out of a 50's Norge.

    Imperial stout with coffee, vanilla and a little bourbon, 12.5% ABV, brewed in early 2014, still needs a little aging:slight_smile:

    Citra/Belma NEIPA, fermented with, of all things, yeast cultured from a can of Schilling Virtue. It works. Maybe a tad overhopped, as it is getting a slight vegetal note at 6 weeks, but still tasty.

    2yo Rye Graff. 3.3# Briess rye extract in 1.5gal water, boiled 30min with hops I don't remember to 80ibu. Add 4gal raw cider to the fermenter, fermented with BE-134, organic apple juice concentrate as priming sugar, and White Labs Brett C at bottling.
    Now crystal clear, very apple forward, but with that old leather note that makes it a good cold day drink.

    Kicked the Averagely Perfect American Brown (aka, The Outlier). This clears the way for the next brew, a Scottish export ale.
