Title: What's Brewing this Weekend? 09/21/2015
Post by: blatz on September 17, 2015, 06:23:00 PM
Figured we keep complaining about the date, so...

Assuming nothing comes up to pull me in a different direction, I'll be brewing an Azacca/Mosaic APA - simple grist of 2row, vienna and english med crystal.  furthering my 'pseudo-drauflassen' yeast pitch trials...

I'm gonna brew an Oktoberfest on Sunday. A bit late, I know, but Oktoberfest is good any time of the year.

I'm brewing something on Sunday, but I haven't figured out what yet, other than 1272 for the yeast. Maybe a Citra APA.  I love buying grain and hops in bulk.

I will be brewing my Christmas beer. It is a Winter Specialty Ale that is dark that features Christmas spices: cinnamon, nutmeg, and ginger.

No brewing for me. This weekend is Oktoberfest Zinzinnati: Celebrating with our sister city Munich! I am going to try to bottle 5G of saison somewhere over the weekend. Just read that Boston Brewing company is going to be tapping a rare keg of their Kosmic Motherfunk Grand Cru on saturday at the festival. Anyone ever had it? Should be brewing Bock next week: 50/50 Munich I&II with a touch of carafa 1 for some color

No brewing for me either. I'm dry hopping an AIPA now (mostly Equinox) and need to keg an American Stout this weekend. They should be good.

Me too.  Gonna use the 2015 SN as inspiration for the recipe.

Gotta rack my session mead to secondary and contemplate backsweetening. Otherwise, I need to clean out some kegs before I get set for more brewing.

I'm making a Belgian Dark Strong. It's been awhile since I've brewed a beer this big.

Yesterday I brewed a Belgian something in the vicinity of a pale ale to blond. It's just pale malt but too gently hopped to call a pale ale and imply a more assertive hop character. It's hopped with belma and spiced with coriander, star anise and lemon peel. It's happily fermenting away with 1214 right now.

That slurry will in turn be used to ferment a kettle soured Belgian stout and then in turn used to ferment a BDSA that will get some cocoa nibs, vanilla and noyaux.

Brewing an imperial stout today... Barley Crusher grain mill wouldn't spin the second roller, the temperature thermometer battery died, and I'm sure a few more hiccups are in the queue.  It is a beautiful day to be outside brewing in NC.

Try taking the rollers out, clean them with a wire brush, and flip the second roller 180 degrees prior to putting it back together.  Should help get the rollers moving well again.

Kicking off a whole week of vacation and plan to brew daily. Starting with a sweet stout, followed by a scottish 70.  Just need to figure out the rest of the week.

I'm set up to brew a Belgian Wit tomorrow to make up for the one I screwed up on Labor Day.  I will be dumping 10 gallons of scorched Belgian Wit sometime during the day.  I haven't dumped a batch of beer in quite a long time so I am wondering if I should have a little ceremony.

Sounds like a lot of marinade to dump, but I know that storage becomes an issue.

I made two ten gallon batches yesterday - a Flanders Red and a no frills lager (I called it NFL, since that will be when it will be served on a couple three Sunday's in November.

Yeah, 'scorched' is tough to overcome. I've done it before and, after the expletives stopped flying, I dumped. I was aggravated for a week.   >:(

Just had that last night. I liked it a lot. I don't typically like the lagers that SN makes for whatever reason, but that one was very good.
I'm actually brewing a pumpkin oktoberfest today with 44oz canned pumpkin in the mash and a spice mix at the end of the boil. Thinking 1/2 tsp cinnamon, 1/4 tsp ginger, and an 1/8 tsp each of all spice and nutmeg. Should be perfect for November/Thanksgiving.

Making cider tomorrow - haven't decided on yeast strain yet. I'll wing it when I get to the LHBS. Tapped a couple beers yesterday - a fruity hop IPA and my roasty, chocolatey house stout. They're nice so I think I'll use them for the swap.

I'm still trying to find a way to brew my bock on sunday : 50/50 split of Weyermann Munich I&II with 2-3 Oz carafa to get the color I want. Really just trying to find the time, I mean Survivor and Skid Row are playing local fall fest here and you know that's hard to pass up... I think I am good to go for Sunday though. Actually just heard that Lou Gramm is replacing Survivor!  Still on for Sunday morning brew day

Harvest ale currently chilling. Basically a pumpkin beer which I know is very popular around here. Pie Pumpkin, Sweet Potato, & Butternut Squash roasted in the oven with a brown sugar syrup that will be added once fermentation slows. Orange zest, cinnamon, ginger, cloves, & nutmeg added at the end of the boil. I try to use a lighter hand with the spices because I am not a huge pumpkin beer lover. WY2565 with an altbier grain bill so basically an amber pumpkin ale.

No brewing this weekend. Had to catch up on the backlog of bottling that needed to be done. 10 gallons worth of 4 different beers. Never again will I bottle 4 different beers in the same day. Forgot to add the sugar to the last batch and had to pipette it in to each bottle individually - such tedium stacked on the already tedious task of bottling. On the upside, now I have 4 empty fermenters and a closet full of bombers of saison and english IPA that'll be ready in a few weeks.

I believe it's true that we stand on the shoulders of those that have gone before us. Cheap and Easy is the only way I roll Denny. Thanks again for your website. I found it as a result of a Don Osborne YouTube video referring to the way he batch sparges which is based on your method.

I brewed a nice relaxing 1.056 batch yesterday in about 4 hrs grain to fermenter. The magic of starch converting to sugar and yeast converting sugar to alcohol never ceases to amaze me.
