Title: What's Brewing This Weekend - 2/16 Edition
Post by: redbeerman on February 15, 2013, 05:54:25 PM
Brewing Denny's BVIP.  Been a while since I've brewed this one.  Don't know why, everyone seems to like it a lot.  Where the heck is Drew, anyway?

I don't know why, either!  ;)  Drew's busy on a book.

No brewing this weekend, but I'll be doing a doppelbock sometime next week and a Rye IPA a few days later.  Just depends on when the yeast is ready.

10 Gallons of German Pils settling now at 52F and about to be tansferred and pitched.  All Pilsner Malt with 1.5# of acid malt.  PH came in at 5.3.  Mittelfruher at 90 and 45, Hersbrucker and 15 and going to dry hop with Saaz.  YUM!   ;D

I meant I don't know why I haven't brewed it in so long.  I love the English language!  Punctuation and all! 8)

Making a Landbier this weekend. I'm using the percentages that Hopfundmalz laid out a while back in a post. "80% Pils, 17% Munich I, and 3% Caramunich." Thanks Jeff!

No brewing this weekend as every single carboy and bucket I own is already filled.  Going to freeze concentrate the eisbock base I brewed a couple months ago and maybe keg an ESB.

Something that's about halfway between a single and a dubbel - I guess you could call it a Belgian amber.

I'll be trying my new IPA recipe - first time using Calypso hops. FWH Columbus for bittering, Cascade for flavor addition, Amarillo at 10 min, and then Calypso at 5 and 0 min, and Cascade/Calypso dry hop in one keg, and Amarillo/Calypso dry hop in the other keg.  Going to do a hop stand for at least 30 minutes.  I plan to taste the wort occasionally during the hop stand like slurping soup from a big spoon!

Taking advantage of the lager temps in my basement and brewing a Helles/APA hybrid on Tuesday. Decided on Mosaic/Amarillo/Citra/Motueka for my hops.

I called mine "1.6"

Bottling my cream ale this Sunday or Monday (hooray 3-day weekend!). I last brewed a cream ale 4 years ago. First time was an extract kit from a homebrew store in Florida--somewhere around the third or fourth batch I brewed. This time it was all-grain from a recipe, with ingredients purchased from a homebrew store in San Francisco.

My goal is to do a double brew day on Monday. Club "Same Brew" ESB in the morning, and then a pilsner that I am turning into a california steam beer in the evening. I need more beer... No brewing for almost 3 months hurts the beer storage...

I got a big tax refund, so I got myself a blichman toptier burner, a polarware HD 8 gallon with thermometer and an immersion chiller.

I have a belgian tripel (extract/speciality grain) sitting at 65 in primary right now. 

I am not sure how well it is going to turn out because I had a boilover.  I wasn't watching the temp like a hawk and the power of the toptier burner compared to the turkey frier I was using before resulted in my first boilover.  I placed an order for some fermcap-s because I have seen nothing but positive reviews on it.

Next weekend I move it into secondary and then I am doing a pumpkin ale for my wife.

I may have posted this in the wrong place before so I will post here ....

brewed up a 14 gallon batch of munich helles ..... inoculated one 5.5 gallon fermentor with wyeast munich lager yeast (appropriate starter) and the other with dry S-189 (appropriate sachets) rehydrated with go-ferm rehydration forumula....Pop quiz question: can anyone tell me what happened to the other 3 gallons????...the munich lager fermented at 50F and the S-189 fermented at 52F... the ambient temp in the fermentation chamber was as much as 3 degrees below the internal temp of the fermenting wort.... Had I went by ambient temp instead of internal temp, my fermentation temp would have been way too hot...see the lagering thread just below this one... cheers!!

brewing up Janet's Brown Ale this weekend.  Never made it.  only difference will be simcoe instead of northern brewer as I don't like the latter and thus don't keep it on hand.

Tonight we have an event called "Try This!" which is a volunteer-based beer and food pairing.  I'm making Chicken and Waffles, both made with some Maibock, and spicy bourbon maple syrup and serving it with my homebrewed maibock.
Saturday judging the final rounds of the Best Florida Beer Championships.  Over 700 entries this year, all from Florida homebrewers.
Sunday recovering.
