Title: sunday, a day of brew
Post by: darthmorgoth on November 15, 2009, 03:17:57 pm
just warming up the water for my next brew of the day here; NB's three hearted ale.

i started this morning with their patersbier and have high hopes for that one, as it comes with many good reviews. these two beers are my first attempts at making starters and i believe that i will try to "ranch" the yeast when they come off of the cake here in a couple weeks.

the next brew lined up is NB's #8, gonna be my first high O.G. @ 1.084!

cheers,
darth

i know that i love two hearted; and i know for damn sure that i love rogue brutal bitter, my local liquor store dude called in an order to his supplier so i can have some for christmas.

ive brewed the tongue splitter and it's carbing right now, i would imagine that before long, i will try that kit with a pound of hops, 155th dream i think.

steeping is done, onward!

I just finished

EPIC brew day

Dopple decoction dopplebock
WICKED SLOW run-off (think my mill needs a look)
All that and a 100 minute boil = long brew day

GO PATRIOTS!

The Bock I did monday was a double decoction and that runoff was slow as hell too.   never have that problem unless its a decoction.   
Go Pats +1!

Decoction isnt the issue, at least not on this end.
Run-off from my last few batches have been slow.
Going to check the mill gap first as the crush looked finer than normal today.

GO PATRIOTS INDEED!
I'll be aerating around kick-off

I haven't brewed for almost a month now :( Just been so busy.
Next brewday is going to be sometime in the second half of December for me.

I need to try NB's Three Hearted.  Patersbier has me intrigued as well.  I can say that after a month and a half in the bottle, The Number 8 is very good.  I imagine that it will only get better with time, so I plan to crack the next bottle (or two) open on New Years Eve.
