Title: What's Brewing This Weekend - 7/30 Edition
Post by: dbeechum on July 28, 2010, 05:40:46 PM
What's burbling? It feels good to have two things in the tanks. Feels a little odd that it's two Saisons in a row. :)

Maybe it's time to brew that Impy Stout.

I think I'm going with a mocktoberfest beer brewed with hallertau hops and wyeast 1007.  Hopefully it'll be tasty.

Something Chouffe-ish with 3522.  Haven't decided between something kinda authentic or a Belgian/Am. IPA.

An american brown (Moose Drool clone).  Something simple and tasty (hopefully) to test out some system changes.

An American IPA.  It's a recipe I've made before with some minor changes to incorporate some judge's feedback I got from a couple of comps last month.

We will be re-brewing our American Pale Ale. We submitted it to a couple competitions and are making a few adjustments to the recipe based on some of the judges notes.

Today I'm dry-hopping my Sorta Denny's Rye IPA (don't ask, many user errors). Don't know if this weekend portends any brewing... wouldn't mind a brew afternoon on the deck, if it's not 50 degrees, but I may wait a week.

An oak aged oatmeal stout from the June 2009 Issue of Zymurgy, and a Tasty APA.  Hopefully.

After work today, I'm brewing a belgian brown (w/ belgian strong 1388) which will then be innoculated with roselare (and probably a few bottle cultures) then dosed with port-infused oak and aging a long time.  Can't wait to try it in 3 years...

I bottled a batch of Skotrat's Traquair House clone on Thursday. The bit left over in the bucket tasted out of this world good.

 I'm about to bottle an English Pale that had elderflowers added at 10 minutes left in the boil. I'm not sure how it will taste but my wife likes elderflowers.

You were right Mikey. It looked a little light when I started measuring out the hops so I added a 5 minute charge. Thanks for the input!!!  ;)  With 22 1/2 oz of hops I think I'll call this one Cat Got Yo Tongue.  ;D

5 Minute
1 oz. Amarillo (8% AA, 10 min.)
.5 oz. Cascade (5.4% AA, 10 min.)
1 oz. Centennial (8.7% AA, 10 min.)
.5 oz. Chinook (11.5% AA, 10 min.)
.5 oz. CTZ (14% AA, 10 min.)

Sniffing airlocks this weekend.

I need to bottle my RIS.

I would wait on the RIS Ron.  It really hasn't been on oak all that long and I think it may fade rather quickly if you bottle too soon.  JMO.  Finally brewed Waiting for Columbus IPA today.  One fermenter is getting Denny's fave, the other S-05.  Got some chipotles drying as well.  House smells like mesquite.  ;D

I never got around to bottling the RIS.  Yeah your probably right...another month or two won't hurt any...and you know how much I like to bottle.  >:(
