Post by: Rattlesnake44 on October 10, 2015, 04:14:19 PM
Just lit the fire! Brewing an American Pale Ale today. Going to be the start of a series of single hop pales I'm doing to try and nail down different hop characteristics.

Not today, but in the next week I'm brewing a rye pils and an IPA.  The IPA will be a test of X17 experimental organic hops that I got ahold of.  They're a Magnum/Cascade cross and have a lot of tangerine/lemon/lime to them.

Those sound delicious sir.
I'm starting this series with Cascades.

I'd love to get my hands on those. Do you know who is developing it (YCR, Haas, HBC, etc.)? Does it go by any other name? I'll have to keep a close eye on my usual sources and snap some up if it becomes available.

Hoping they'll be available commercially next year.  A brewery I consult for got 10 lb. and gave me 1/2 lb. to play with.

Much smaller scale...it's a grower named Pat Levy.  At this point, X17 is all it's called.

It's great to hear that the little guys are able to do some innovation as well. Hopefully the resources are there to scale up production if it's a winner.

As I write I'm brewing a Brown Porter--got 15 more minutes of boiling. It's after midnight, the wife and kids are asleep, I'm sampling a dunkleweisen, and I'll be beyond tired tomorrow. But I'm happy.

This will be my second porter this fall: brewed a smoked robust porter but am looking forward to a more traditional version.

Will be brewing my first California Common in many years tomorrow.  Then saving the yeast for a large baltic porter.  Should be a beautiful day here for Colombus Day.

Mashing in an experimental beer inspired by one of Gordon's recipes from MHR.  My recipe is actually quite different from his, this is really just focusing on the technique.  No hops in the boil, just a 20 minute hot whirlpool at the end.  I'm mostly interested in perceived bitterness rather than actual IBUs.  I may or may not dry hop this.
-----

6 gallons
1.054
30 IBUs??

92% Pale Ale (Dingemans)
8% Pale Wheat (Dingemans)

2 oz Azacca @WP (Pellet, 10.3% alpha, 20 min, 200F+)
1 oz Simcoe @Hop Rocket (Leaf, 14.1% alpha)

Mash 60 min @152F

WY1056 (007 method, 1L @HK)

Doing a traditional bock today. 60% dark munich, 30% light munich, 10% pils. Will adjust SRM with a little Midnight Wheat in sparge.  1.068/25 IBU/WLP833. Can't wait.

Also, brewday - that looks good. I'm curious to see how it comes out for you.

Sunday, I brewed a Belgian wheat with a pound of flaked rye and finishing hops were Hallertau Blanc. Yeast was Wy3522 Belgian Adrenne, 2nd or 3rd generation. Pretty much open fermented it at 72F. OG 1.050. The Hallertau Blanc smell pretty dank and fruity. This beer is going to be drank at a Halloween party, probably in about 30 minutes to an hour, so...we'll see. I hope to get a fair amount of it.
It was my one outside brewday of the year, and it was great. I may have to do another couple outside brew sessions before it gets real cold. I typically boil on the stove inside as it can handle a good sized boil. But I should probably be boiling outside in the summer just to avoid adding more moisture to my house.

On October 16, I brewed a Czech dark lager.  A nice winter session beer.

13 lbs. Avangard Pilsner malt
4.5 lbs. Avangard Munich malt
2.25 lbs. CaraMunich 80
6 oz. CaraBohemian
12 oz. Carafa III (added to the sparge)

Mash in at 148°F for 60 min. Pull and boil a decoction for 10 minutes, add back to raise to 155°F for 30 minutes. 90 min total mash time.

3.3 oz. Halletaur Mittelfrueh 60 min
2 oz. Czech Saaz 20 min
1 oz. Czech Saaz 0 min

Boiled for 90 minutes. Immersion chiller got the wort down to 56°F with constant stirring in 15 minutes.

Looks delish! On my long list of styles to brew. My next new style will be a Vienna lager which won't be for a bit. Seems that you make a good one of those too.
