Hoping to do a double batch session next Friday of Vienna Lager and an ESBish sort of thing. Never attempted 2 batches in one day so it should be interesting.What's your ESB-ish sort of thing? I'm interested in something that falls into that space near ESB and American Amber where crisp hop flavor/aroma meets crystal maltiness.
As for the two batches in one day -- I set out to do that a few weeks ago. Usually I feel pretty tireless when brewing, but for some reason that day I realized about halfway through the boil that I wasn't going to make it to the second batch. Unfortunately the grain is still sitting in my closet....
83.3% golden promise
9.5% munich 6L
3.6% uk crystal 45
3.6% simpson's double roasted crystal
EKG/Palisade @ 20 min
EKG/Fuggles @ 5 min
EKG/Palisade dry hop
deciding between US05 and S04 depending on how "English" I want to make it.
As far as two batches in one day, I would prefer not do it but I have beer fest on Saturday, Mother's Day on Sunday and I have to get these guys ready for a tasting in June.
