time to brew up my Christmas Ale so its in its prime by early December.

I brewed mine last weekend and it's bubbling away merrily at the moment.  No brewing this weekend.  Just some cleanup around the brewery.

Wow, you're right. It is time to start thinking about x-mas brew! I've been doing Jubelesque brews the last couple of years.  Thinking I'd like to mix it up this year.  Perhaps I'll start a yule beer thread for insipiration.

Look in the ingredients section under whole star anise. just started the thread ;)
Sorry man! I didn't check that one as I'm not big anise fan. Didn't mean to jack your thread!

I like to do strong beers that can age for a while if folks aren't in the mood right away, barley wines, BDS etc. I also like to add a little spice, or some other interest factor.
What spice combo has beer your favorite or most appreciated by those you share with?

As pointed out in the 'what's brewing this week' thread, it's time to start thinking about and brewing holiday beers so they're in their prime for Santa's helpers. 

Curious what you folks like to brew for the holidays and or what you're thinking about for this year.

Beer Recipes / Re: Roggenbier yeast alternative

It's not going to taste anything like a roggenbier if you don't use a hefeweizen type yeast. Might be a tasty beer though. You might consider upping the hops (and adding some flavor/aroma hops) a bit to make the beer a bit more interesting.
This is track I started down.  I've modified the recipe and added more Tettnang to get the IBUs up to ~22 and boosted the Saaz at the end to bolster some aroma. So you think fermenting around 58-60 df would give me a cleaner profile while keeping line with the style?  That makes sense. Decisions, decisions, I love homebrewing.

Beer Recipes / Roggenbier yeast alternative
« on: August 22, 2012, 09:07:20 PM »
I'm thinking I'd like to make a Roggenbier on Labor Day to round out my Oktoberfest line up.  I'm also thinking about using WY1007 German Ale yeast rather than the usual wheat beer yeast as I'm not a huge fan of banana/clove/bubblegum notes and its for a party.  Haven't used 1007 before.  Any reason I should reconsider?

Kegging and Bottling / Re: Some Basic Kegging/Force Carbing Questions

The thought being that the agitation in the car will help dissolve/distribute the CO2 throughout the beer in the keg?

Is a carbonation stone a worthwhile investment?  $13.00 at my LHBS.

Exactly.
I've never used a stone to carbonate but it seems like it would speed things up a bit.  Then again, you'd also have to rig up a special "in" line.  I wouldn't bother.

If I were in your situation I'd ice the beer in a tub overnight or for a few hours the morning of your trip. Attach the gas at about 30 psi and hit the road. After about three hours I'd relieve the pressure in the keg and reset the regulator to about 12 psi for the rest of the trip. Your beer will be closer to serving temp when you arrive and I bet your carbonation would be acceptable too. Good luck!

I boil the starter for 10 min., but I start with a slightly higher volume to account for boiloff.

It's kinda hard to swill down 5 gallons of an "experiment".

Unless it goes horribly right!

No brewing, having a 12'x16' Barn style TuffShed built and I need to get the site prep done.
