My weekend started Wednesday. I brewed an IPA that day. Yesterday, I brewed a 10 gallon batch if a pale ale. I also kegged my cherry wheat. Interesting that Kona Big Wave was mentioned, because I have 10 gallons of my version of that fermenting. I currently have 25 gallons fermenting.... All of these mentioned beers will be on tap at my wedding at the end if May.

Brewing James' Brown tomorrow, South Scotland Brown with Irish yeast and a mix of nut type special grains. Mostly golden promise with some brown, some victory,  some pale chocolate.

Just tapped an Irish Red X. 50% golden promise, 50% red X. Waiting for it to settle a bit before photo, but it's tasty. So far I'd say red x is like Munich but a bit more bite.

I'm brewing 2 IPAs and an RIS that I'll add coffee to in a few months. It's all 3 gallon batches, so I think it will be manageable.

Gonna have to run and get some hose tomorrow. I have a sneeky suspicion that this porter is gonna require a blow off instead of an airlock. Jim what's that red x you mentioned?

Brewing a Kona Big Wave Golden Ale Clone‏ tomorrow with a friend who is brewing an IPA. It's spring and it's great to be outside!

I had a Kona Big Wave yesterday for the first time - really good ale - almost lager like.  I would love to see a clone recipe, as it had some very interesting esters that I'd describe as a medley of tropical fruit.  I wondered out loud as to whether it was mainly a hop created flavor or was yeast/fermentation created.

Here's what I did. I never had the beer, just took what I info I could get from the Kona website...

5.5 Gallon Batch
OG = 1.047

92% American Two Row = 8 lb 8 oz
5 % Caramel/Crystal 10L = 8 oz
3 % Caramel/Crystal 20L = 5 oz

FWH = 6 g Citra and 6 g Galaxy
10 Minute = 6 g Citra and 6 g Galaxy
0 Minute = 16 g Citra and 16 g Galaxy

White Labs Cali 001

Brewed a British Dark Mild Friday.  Kegged an IPA and cleaned some other kegs as well.  I have a couple other yeast starters going - I have a vermont ale yeast starter that I may brew a Double Sunshine clone with (From BYO) on Sunday.  Yard work and gardening on deck today though.

No brewing this weekend. I've got a Brown Shugga clone in the fermenter that I just dry hopped. The beer tastes and smells amazing and is attenuating nicely from 1.096 to 1.025 using WLP002! I had my concerns.

I also cleaned 10 kegs using my  "Mark's Keg Washer" that I bought from Northern Brewer. This jewel has made a task I dreaded into something that's almost fun. 10 kegs in 2 hours with about 9 gallons of water. Very efficient, too. Disclaimer - I have no association with Mark or Northern Brewer, I'm just a happy customer.

I brewed an IPA last weekend so I'll keg it next weekend and pitch something onto the yeast cake. At 3 AM I knew what I wanted to brew(it came to me in a dream) but now I've lost it so I have the rest of the week to figure it out.

My favorite summer/session beer. fmader's recipe looks pretty good I think. Big on hop flavor but not bitterness..

Bitterness: 21 IBU
Alcohol by Volume: 4.4%
Original Gravity: 10.3° P
Malts: PALE (PREMIUM 2-ROW), Caramel
Hops: GALAXY, CITRA
