Title: What's Brewing This Weekend - 4/2 Edition
Post by: dbeechum on April 01, 2010, 09:41:26 AM
After last week's brew, my ankle decided to remind that it had a large say in what I can and can't do - so this week, I'm back at it and going to hit my numbers to get a mild and a saison in place for the SCHF!

Last week's German pils is perking away,  This week I will probably do a starter for next weeks English IPA.

Hefeweizen for a turkey hunting trip the end of the month, we can only hunt until noon each day then the gloves come off  ;D

Depending on how I feel either a Kolsch or a Pils as I have yeasts ready for both of them.

Kicking off a lawnmower Kolsch/Cream this weekend.  Got the Jimmy Buffett concert in Dallas coming up in mid May, and I don't think a keg of double IPA would be the best option for tailgating all day...

Want to knock out a porter this weekend, but I have so much other stuff to do.

I've been itching to do a saison for weeks.  Was going to use some leftover maple sap for the liquor but I think it may be too funky at this point.  Especially after this weekend.  May be in the 70'S!!!

Probably not going to happen.   :'(

I think I'm finally using the 200mls of 1450 to make DC's Rye IPA.  Probably do a small starter tonight to wake the yeast up a little bit!  Might squeeze in a Double IPA if I take Monday off too!   8)

Brewed a saison yesterday and threw some blackberries in a wit.  Going to keg and bottle a northern brown, rack a mead, and if I have some spare time brew an IPA, although I don't have any crystal malt, was thinking of using honey malt instead.

Think I am either gonna brew up Denny's Belgian IPA or the Terrapin Rye Pale Ale from CYBI.  Got a new puppy coming to live with us tomorrow, so it may have to wait.

Tomorrow will be a triple. It will be Classic Styles recipe with an extra Denny hop. In the last 4 weeks I've done Janet's Brown and an IP Wheat.  We dry hopped the brown 1 keg on Centennial and 1 keg on Citra. The wheat is a 7% wheat 50 IBUs from Magnun and an once of Citra at flameout.

Nothing this weekend, but my Willamette/Cascade Pale Ale is headed to a keg.  First kid is due tomorrow so I couldn't plan much.

I'll be bottling a porter sometime this weekend. Probably not brewing for a month or so as supply has gotten ahead of demand.

Nothing brewing this week. Plenty of yard work to do this weekend.

Making a starter for an IPA that will be brewed next weekend.

Post by: enso on April 02, 2010, 09:35:00 PM
Well, I may not being brewing this week/end but there is ALWAYS something to do in the brewhouse!  I have a Belgian IPA and a Strong Golden to keg up, 20 gallons of cider to check on and do something with or leave alone...  Barley wine to bottle, and man, I have not even thought about all those meads since last summer!!!  Bottling to do for the next round of comps coming up...

Phew.  Now I am stressed.  None of that is going to happen this week either.

ugh.

Guess  better go have a brew.

 ;D

I brewed a smoked (robust) porter.

I'm thinking I might fire up the kettles tomorrow and brew another beer. 36 gallons in 8 days is a pretty good speed. :)

I am brewing a pocorn ale this weekend that will be featured at a local beerfest.

Dry-hopped my second attempt at a Two-Hearted Ale clone. The first clone was very tasty, but it wasn't quite on the mark for THA per se, and I realized that in halving it and making it partial-mash I had increased the percentage of Vienna seen in most of these recipes. This one seems good but I'm starting to think I liked the first one better! This was also my first attempt at using leaf hops for dry-hopping (with a sanitized chunk of pantyhose and some marbles). No brewing per se until mid-May.

And there we go.. another 12 gallons down tonight.

So 8 days, 36 gallons and thank the maker. Can't brew until this ferments done because my HLT is now serving as a water bath.

The weather here is still cool enough to get in one more batch of alt.  I can ferment it in my garage and it'll stay in the 52-55 range.  Got my yeast started yesterday.

I racked  a Helles to a keg for lagering on 4/3, and reused the slurry for a Märzen brewed that same day.
