Title: What's Brewing This Weekend - 11/16 Edition
Post by: dbeechum on November 14, 2012, 08:24:51 PM
Thanksgiving time!

What's in the brew kettles?

Me: I'm straightening up the brewery so I can blast out something awfully strange and mega.

Well, first electric brew was successful, but not without snafus.  Bought second CFC to double gang, with the first CFC running hose water, and the second running recirc'd icewater.

Will be trying that out along with a new filter screen whilst brewing an IPA (http://www.homebrewersassociation.org/forum/index.php?topic=13803.0) with only FWH, 60 and huge whirlpool additions in the kettle. 

Looking forward to it!

Going to try and fit in a Sumuel Smith Nut Brown Ale clone.  The WL037 is just in stock and I got the first vial from my LHBS. 

Hey Ferb, I know what I'm going to do tonight.  Make the starter!

(anyone with small children will know where that came from...)

Bottling my smoked punkin ale. I know I'm late. Then I will be brewing my smokey oyster stout. I can't seem to keep it in stock. Any one that has tried it loves it. Took it to my club meeting and they went crazy over it. I do like my smoke and a good cigar.

Nuttin'.  Will probably dry hop the impy red I brewed a couple of weekends ago.  Will probably brew next weekend, so a starter for that will be in order.  Most likely WLP500 for this years quad.

A German lager of some sort - the ambient temperatures for the next week will make it possible to lager in the garage without resort to the lager chest.  I need to bottle a batch to open up a primary fermenter, though, because all of my kegs are presently being used....I had a busy fall so far, but the holidays should open things up on the stockpile.

I hear there's a guy on the internet who has a site for cheap & easy brewing ;D

There's some Centennials in the freezer just screaming to get out into some hot water.  I think I'll oblige Sunday.

Where's perry?

I'm brewing a Red Ale. A recipe that I was really happy with. Two minor tweeks aiming at color and ABV improvements. Firing up the burner in a minute.

Nothing this weekend, but I'll be heading down to the Homebrew shop to get some supplies for my Black Friday Brew Day.. Brewing a hoppy red rye ale.

No brewing for me saving it for Thursday so I can brew with my uncle who introduced me to this obsession.

I will be doing a test run with all my equipment tomorrow though bc I added a pump and a kettle for a mashtun (used a cooler previously)

I was hoping to brew a dunkel, but my single-tier brew stand build is going slower than anticipated.  I made five trips to my local Ace hardware today...grrrrrr.

Be thankful that you still have a local hardware store.  All most of have is a Home Despot.

Bottled an english brown ale last night and will brew up a 80/ scottish ale this afternoon.  Saving a schwarzbeir brewing session for Thanksgiving day.  Was at my home brew store yesterday and it was busy!  Lots of brewing going on this week in Colorado Springs.

Per the Recipe forum (http://www.homebrewersassociation.org/forum/index.php?topic=13942.0 (http://www.homebrewersassociation.org/forum/index.php?topic=13942.0)), Just kegged a best bitter, and decided to have fun with the yeast cake.  An old ale blew the lid off the fermenter despite a good load of fermcap S, and has settled back down to bubbling merrily away.

It spent about 24 hours with a near constant stream of bubbles out the airlock.... sounded like a power boat.

Brewed an Extract APA hop bursted with HBC 342.  Pellets smelled fanstastic, crop was from 2011.  Hoping for the 2012 crop soon if they taste as good as they smelled!

Very true.  My local Ace is THE place!  One of the guys that works there helped me out a lot when I was putting together my gas plumbing.  Super knowledgeable, and he was very intrigued by homebrewing.

Our hardware store (name purposely ommitted) supplies the local moonshiners as well as homebrewers.  I was picking up fittings for my mash tun and the guy asked me if I was shinin'

Just about to start sparging my Pumpkin Ale.  The neighbors just polished off the last of the 2011 batch which was quite tasty for an 8.3% brew.
