    I’ll start this off...[​IMG]
    hornindal kviek “table” beer. 4% pils and Vienna. Minimal Columbus in boil. Whirlpool El dorado and Amarillo. Dry hopped el dorado and Amarillo. Basically no bitterness. Estery fruity flavors from the yeast. I fermented this at 95F. My only complaint is that it never flocced with a 4 day cold crash. Oh well I’m used to hazy beer.

    Here's my first Oktoberfest. Been lagering for about 7 weeks so far. Crisp, clear and damn drinkable.

    About a month. Getting a bit of smokiness that wasn’t there before.

    Main crew has arrived, groupies and hangers on coming today.
    Chocolate stout, but on light, very young smoked pumpkin which was wildly accepted, Belgian blueberry and even a few spruce ales.
    So far so good!!

    I'm going to make an Averagely Perfect Dubbel doubly perfect, by having a second glass. Stuff is at peak deliciousness this week, it seems.

    Pumpkin ale is about done, at 5 days old, guess there was not too much cinnamon, Irish and chocolate stout supply's badly damaged as was the clean up ipa#2.

    Still way too hot for pumpkin ales...

    Finally settled into the new house, and drinking a huell melon dry hopped Berliner - it’s hitting the spot right about now!

    Will keg a saison I did recently this week and making a spiced pumpkin pie (small batch) this weekend with actual pie filling and no longer using the Libby's pumpkin as I typically get the vegetal taste in the end. I'll try and throw up a picture of the saison....some of these beers look great by the way!

    Popped a bottle of the old ale with brett c. I gave away 12 bottles last weekend; only have 8 left. I kind of want to drink them all now because this may be at it's peak. Behind the funky front end taste there is an almost intense, lingering cherry lifesaver sweet-tart thing going on. I never really felt I got tartness out of Brett in the absence of a lacto and/or pedio pitch, but this one has some distinct tartness.

    Tried a couple of year-old brews last night.
    The high octane BDSA with sour cherries and mahleb still hasn't carbonated, and probably never will (was over 15% abv at bottling), but is very pleasant: lots of cherry and almond, with a hint of cinnamon. Definitely a sipper.
    Imperial porter has finally aged through the excess bitterness, and is now smooth, but almost unbearably chocolatey. Probably pull back on the brown malt and bittering hops a bit next time.

    [​IMG] Kviek farmhouse with 50% wheat, Munich, Irish ale malt(trying to rid myself of it). Hopped solely with jarrylo. This is terrible in the sense that it’s as boring as white bread. I Fermented cool at 75. Jarrylo sucks. Pretty sure I’ll be dumping this keg. LPT don’t use jarrylo ever and always ferment kviek at 90F+.
