Hoosierbrew (Jon) cider. Great apple taste - love the acidity and tart crisp finish Jon. Thanks for sharing this one- bet it's a crowd favorite.

its really nice balance of sweet and dry. whats the yeast used? back sweeten or halt fermentation..guessing back sweeten. apple really shines.


Thanks Ken. Glad you liked it! It kind of hits the niche between what I like and my wife likes. I like drier, she likes sweeter. I think it has elements of both. It just took a silver at the GLINTCAP comp up in Michigan.

I'll bet it tastes even better than it looks!

I went with a 50/50 caramunich and carahell blend for 4.6% of grist.....digging it.
What did you do previously and what do you like about the current mix? Sorry for asking niggling questions, but I'm struggling with how to best blend some of these small Cara type additions and the exact things they're contributing in different proportions.
well going way back- i would have used pils with some carapils.  i then transitioned to pils with carahell. Now blending a little more to add some more malt complexity.

Can you provide a quick hop schedule for a dort? I have a beer that I think is pretty close to a dort in style but uses sterling and crystal hops.

usually merkur/magnum for about 22ibu, and some noble like hallertauer for another 8ibu late addition.

JT's American wheat with rye.

waiting on the grist and yeast used-this is a very quaffable quenching American wheat. Great thick foam that slowly settles to nice thin cap. highly carbonated as I would expect from this style. nice golden yellow color and there's slight haze with no sediment. the esters are very slight yet the yeast dominates in aroma and taste. I'm not picking up very much rye-and that might have been the intent so no issue there for me. the body and mouthfeel is just right and the finish is nice and crisp with little tartness. this almost starts to remind me of a blonde....really enjoyed this beer. nicely done and good luck keeping this one for very long!

When I will get around to brewing again, I have no idea.  Little League started up two weeks ago and I think it will eat more time than I can possibly imagine.  But I can brew when the kids are older and want nothing to do with me.


Yeah, I'm in the same boat right now with the kids' activities. Brewing less than I have in years. Temporarily.
Same sports, motorcycle season .... Life! I did get that 007 azacca amarillo IPA in Sunday.


Nice!
Smells great- can't wait.

And no one has even enjoyed a sample yet?

cracked JT's German Pils few minutes ago....more to follow.

So appearance is crystal clear light straw- pale and slightly golden.  Great 2-3 finger foam that persists , eventually settling in to nice foam cap throughout the consumption. Lacing is very nice.
Aroma is of sweet hay, gram cracker.maybe tad sulfur which is good IMO.
Great mouthfeel- dry, crisp and Begs for another sip. Balance of hop and malt is very good.
Absolutely no flaws / off flavors.

JT says this is his 1st German Pils. Waiting on his recipe , but I will say this is a very good representation of style.

Packaging now Amanda. Ship out Monday .

Well, aren't you a fancy packer... Mine never ends up that pretty. Nice job!

Repurposing another Brewers packaging as sent to me...I'm typically bubble wrap all to hell and back.

Well, this beautiful package job found it's way back to Ohio via AmandaK. I'll be hanging onto it for my next beer shipment. It should be interesting to see how many times this gets shipped back and forth across the country.
Well it's gone Cali to Ohio, Ohio to Kansas , and Kansas to Ohio.....lots of miles!
