    Thanks for the offer, but probably not for this brew. My wife will probably complain that it's too hoppy as-is.

    Berliner.. Finally took a picture of this keg. Enjoying it while watching the Masters with my kids, and smokin' a butt on the BGE for dinner.

    IPA bittered with nugget and citra centennial and cascade used for flavor aroma and dry hop. Brewed this one on Boxing Day and still tasting pretty damn good. Brewed a best bitter this morning for summer. Still rationing our Irish red and month old all centennial ipa that is killing it right now!

    Just had a bomber of my FBS-ish clone that was out of this world at about 5mos age. Held back on some of the coffee, I'm very happy with this beer. Maybe I'll make it a yearly brew.

    I did an fbs like clone as well and stepped up the coffee from sumatra and kona to espresso roast. I really wish I had left it as kona and sumatra. Next time I may just keep the flmeout additions as espresso and the kona will come in at botttling.

    Anyhow, sipping on a wit I bottled up last weekend. The gravity sample tasted so damned good I couldn't wait the full two weeks. Corriander comes through nicely, but the clementines are what really shine. I put 3 lbs halved and juiced clementines into the 10 gallon batch at flameout instead of the orange peel. Despite all the negative feedback on this site and others about fermenting orange juice, I decided to go all fruit instead. Glad I did, the citrus makes this beer. Planning an all citra dipa as I drink this, part 2 of the K.U.S.H. series of pale ales. (Keep Us So Hoppy)

    My first sour beer is finally in the keg!! Primaried with Dream Weaver yeast, secondary with JP, Bruery and RR dregs. Intensely sour, more acetic acid than I like, mildly funky, nice fruity nose from peaches and raspberries in secondary. Not too shabby at all for my first attempt.

    Nice! Congrats. Can't seem to keg my sours, as I want to dole them out slowly and miserly. What's up with that head? All of my sours have dreadful head retention.

    Thanks! The pic was pretty much immediately after pouring. It doesn't stick around long.

    Year old RIS aged with Pappy van Winkle bourbon/oak.

    Yes, that glass says pint, no, it's not a pint, but a half pint. Tuesday night, doesn't deserve a large pour of a 14% beer. It's tasting pretty delicious after a year. Need to brew it again this year to get a vertical going.

    Revisiting the last batch of Export India Porter I made. Flavor and aroma hops have faded at this point, so it's entering the middle phase of the evolution. Chocolatey porter on the front of the tongue, english IPA on the back. Nice one for the 40 degree temp drop today.

    I'm drinking Waaaambulance ale. It's a commercial beer, available in any store, but you can only get it when you're completely out of homebrew. :rolling_eyes:

    Hey, great job reviewing your own beer, and not giving it a huge rating! Really a 3.5 ain't a bad beer, at least the way I rate things (attempting to do them according to the guidelines set forth on this site). There are plenty of 3.5 beers I'll happily drink anytime. Yeah, we all could drink nothing but 5's all day long, but I've only ever given one beer a 5 (pushing 1100 reviews on BA), and that would get pretty boring. I like variety, and enjoy almost every style on a sort of rotating basis (heavier on my fav styles, of course).

    You will make homebrews that are well over a four. Do a good job on making the APA IPA and you should be well over four.

    Trying to clear out some homebrew bottles to make something new in the near future.

    My "Late Winter Ale" is actually still drinking fairly good.

    Cracked open a new batch of ordinary bitter last night. Very fruity up front with pear and a little banana. Slight hop bitterness in the middle and a wonderful biscuity bready finish.

    Kansas governor signed our bill, so soon it will no longer be a crime for me to share my beer, take it from the home, for us to hold a competition, etc.
    Had some really fantastic homebrewed American IPA to celebrate, though I've moved on to a 2007 bottle of The Abyss. Fucking glorious.

    Just cracked open a test bottle of the first saison I've ever brewed, hop bursted with Galaxy. It's tasting incredible, just needs a little more carb time.

    Tried a week old bottle of Imperial IPA (First attempt at an IIPA)
    Simcoe, Ahtanum, Mosaic, El Dorado, Nelson Sauvin and Apollo hops and a 5 ounce dry hop for a week.
    Fruity and Juicy, just needs another week of carbonating.
    Watch out Heady!

    I cracked the first bottle (well, half bottle since it was the last one filled) of a new batch of California Common as a carb test, it turned out very good. Right now I have a belgian pale ale, recipe from BCS

    Hydrometer sample of my hopped to the gills session ale (a la Boat Beer from Carton) Grain bill was Plisner malt as the base and about 20% white wheat. Also a little cara pils and flaked oats. Hopped with Nugget (bittering) and tons of late additions of Cascade, Nugget, and Zythos. Just added the first dry hop charge of Falconer's Flight. Looking and tasting good. Going to be a perfect late spring early summer crusher!

    Underhopped IPA (as opposed to my typical Overhopped IPA) with Nelson, Mosaic, and Amarillo. At least now I know for next time where the middle is :slight_smile:

    I would if I made it down your way more often! I was just down in Avalon visiting family and I grabbed a bunch of Boat on the way down and on the way home too.

    Going to do a side by side once it's finished. Here's the recipe I hacked up (partial mash). Am I in the ballpark, in terms of a clone of the real deal? It's a phenomenal beer!

    50/50 blend of my Cherry Flanders and BSDA.

    Damp basement, leather, barnyard, sweet tarts, cherries, plums, raisin, delicious!

    Right now I'm finishing off a glass of IPA. Was supposed to be similar to (or a "clone" of) Widmere's Broken Halo, but it tastes very close to Sierra Nevada Torpedo. Good beer no doubt but I miss Broken Halo, maybe I'll contact Widmere and try to persuade them to hand out a homebrew recipe...
