just finished fermenting and am throwing into coldness a lager made with (per gallon) 2.5 pounds dark munich and 1.25 pounds vienna, 9 grams of hallertau at 60 minutes. and munich lager yeast.1052 (og)- 1013 (fg) was supposed to be more of a dopplebock but tried the boil in a bag and efficiency sucked. tasted yesterday when i checked and still fantastic.

up next is a strawberry and rhubarb pilsner and then probably a dortmunder and CAP

for that matter there is plenty variety of quality beers at any good store. why spend more to get someone's iffy home brew.

I remember flying in and out of a little island (cay) in the bahamas.  the runway (grass) was at a small bonefishing club and was underwater except at low tide.

euge, sounds actually perfect, this first one won't be able to age that long, probably only 6 - 9 months before the little dude heads to pensacola. but it should be a good start.

a good digital scale will read within 2 tenths no sweat. our wrestling team relies on that. however, a good scale for weighing babies will work too. should be able to get used for not too much.

i pretty much only brew a gallon at a time now. mostly lagers so i still do a decent amount of yeast at pitching, though sometimes lazy and just a pack of wyeast munich for a gallon works. then save the slurry.   i measure my hops in grams and adjust the utilization equation a bit.  since i use lager yeast and cool temps, i  still let it go for a few weeks before even checking gravity. i am actually planning a lager chamber on my workbench where i can keep 4-5 one gallons at a time.   planning small kegging operation next

thanks guys.
i thought it would probably do better a little warmer than i had planned. this frees up room for more lagering.
have a good weekend

my oldest son will be headed for flight school in pensacola sometime late this summer. he likes the hard cider and i am going to make him some to take with him.  i plan on aging it from now until then at least.  my question is do people age this in refrigerated temperatures (this is my plan).  or does it age better when stored at warmer temps (68-72)?

i brew small batches and i pour my wort through a very fine stainless steel strainer. works great. i don't have to deal with bags and just rinse the strainer and through it in the dishwasher when i am done. similar to using a paint filter which i guess would be even easier sinced disposable.
