Title: What's brewing this weekend 1/29
Post by: bluesman on January 26, 2010, 07:50:17 PM
Thought it was a good time to plan for the weekend. If my timing is right I will be brewing an ESB on Sunday.

no brewing this weekend - Jupiter Beer Festival on Saturday - I think over 50 breweries will be in attendance - my club will have a booth as well, we'll be serving 20 gal each of Smoked Porter, IPA and ESB - all my recipes (though not brewed on my system) - should be cool.

Next week, Vienna...

Denny, what do you get out of the second gyle of the Old Stoner grain bill?  I mean OG wise and what sort of hop schedule do you run for the second?

Usually we get around 12 gal. of mid 60ish wort.  We look through the grain supply as we crush the grians for Old Stoner and pick out some interesting looking stuff to cap the mash with.  Then, after we get the 2nd running wort in the kettle and get an SG reading on it so we know how much hops to use, we raid my hop freezer and grab whatever looks good at the moment.  About the only time I do "seat of the pants" brewing.

Its been a while since I've been able to brew a light colored beer so I'm going to brew either an Amarillo APA or a Cascade & Amarillo APA.  I want to make a Marzen / Oktoberfest and a Dunkel but the weather here is too cold yet.

Going to Nashville this weekend.  But on Monday I plan to transfer last weeks brew(Newcastle clone) into secondary and brewing a wit.

... About the only time I do "seat of the pants" brewing.

Thanks!  I was hoping for an answer along these lines.  I'm still too new at all-grain to attempt anything "seat of the pants" - if I end up with something awesome, I want to be able to duplicate it.  However I do have a RIS coming up that I wanted to partigyle and figured the seconde gyle would be the time to brew "on the fly."

IPA for the wife (well, ok me too) going with some Columbus for the first time.

Schwarzbier or a Baltic Porter. Got some beautiful 2124 slurry that I racked a Pils off last night.
Pretty stuff

Ohhh.. I like CTZ!!  It's great for bitter, flavor and aroma although I usually use Magnum for the bitter & save the CTZ for flavor & aroma. Works well with the other C hops & Amarillo too!!!

ROFL

I actually thought of taking a few last night when looking at it just prior to racking and then again when it was in the mason jars.

Maybe I'll go a semi-SMASH route
Have about enough Halcyon left in a bucket to get the OG to 1.050 or so , bring it up to 1.070 with Canada Pale and go all Columbus to about 11

Made a Best Bitter yesterday.  Racked a southern english brown during the boil and used the slurry (WLP022 essex ale).

I'll knock out the IPA during the week after work.

Nothing can ever go right .........right?
Wired up a 4500 watt 240 element in the keggle, works great!

Problem............. works too great at around 50% boil off after a test boil revealed that the thermocouple crapped out on me and no matter what the settings were all screwy. It was always FULL POWER.

All is well now, dont have a brew session in me right now.

Looks like it's just a WLP002 starter today and the ESB next weekend.

How long to reach full boil?  5 or 10 gallon batch size?  I'm going electric sometime this year and need data for element size decision.  Thanks.
