Title: What's Brewing This Weekend - 7/9 Edition
Post by: dbeechum on July 07, 2010, 06:19:24 PM
Looks like I'm brewing a starter Saison to build up reserves for a big Saison brew.

Well it's about time!  I cry a little bit harder every day I see the "Nada" under burbling....

And Denny, what the heck is going on?!?  Maybe the AHA is working you guys a little too hard!  :o

I'm brewing another club barrel project this weekend.  We'll be filling a French Oak Merlot barrel with a big stout.  Hopefully some of that winey/oakiness comes through!

You're telling me!  I've got 4 kegs set aside for my wife's b'day party next weekend, and I'm praying there are some leftovers!

Berliner Weisse right now

Running it off into a bucket
Covering it for a few days while we go away camping.
When we get home I'll put it in a carboy and throw some US-05 at it

Guy in the club made one using this method and the beer is tremendous

Well, this one should be ready by then.  I like to err on the side of caution.   ;)

Nothing brewing this weekend.  I will be bottling my first batch of "Mad Scientist Amber Ale" Monday Night.  Eventually I'll learn to have two going at once or as I'm bottling one work on another.  I may need to buy stock in bottles though.  Until I brew again, I will be working on improving my fermenter and getting a bigger brew pot.

Too Late for you...ha ha ha ha ha.....you are BITTEN....you need to buy a Keg setup and stop messing with bottles...

when you do, life gets easier....plus you can always bottle from the keg.

I am going to smoke 150 pounds of malt this weekend.
I know, you're all asking where am I going to get papers that big, but I get to help brew a collaboration beer at a friend's brewery next weekend.  I'll post some pictures of my smoker in action.

I have Monday and Tuesday off and am Home Alone as well those days... so I'm going to brew SOMEthing. I have been thinking about brewing Hard & Hardy, the English barleywine from Brewing Classic Styles, to set aside for the Christmas season. But Denny's Rye IPA came out so good I am tempted to brew it again...

You've got me really excited now! This is the first time I've made it. So . . based on your timeline, are you suggesting the beer won't reach its zenith for a couple of years?

It started getting really good after 1 year, but it took another year for it to really get those hallmark OA characteristics to come out.

I got the recipe from an old NB member who emailed Adam directly and got a great response. 

One thing I recommend is boiling down a gallon of first runnings to around a pint-quart - its a nice touch.

Good luck!

I'm going to try to sneak in the 1776 Porter from Radical Brewing. I'm a little nervous that there is too much brown and biscuit malt, so may add some six row to help with the conversion. This will be my first recipe brew AG, minus a small tweak. Also my first use of MONTH, interested to see difference.

Hit 80% efficiency for the third beer in a row last night.  Guess it's time to bump up the efficiency in my recipes.

Wit right now using some Lime Zest in addition to bitter orange pee and coriander

Hoping the lime gives some freshness to the nose.

I know its late... but I skipped the brewday to watch the World Cup Final.

So I'm taking off tomorrow to brew a Flanders Red. No Roselare Blend, just dregs from all the belgian beers I was always too cheap to buy... Now I have an excuse  ;D
