Does anyone know what the next quarter PC releases will be?

Ha!  Bet you're chomping at the bit for them to release your Munich lager II, huh?
Ya, I think my slants have been in the fridge for about 9 months. It will be a good test of my skills I guess... I'll be brewing my first lagers of the season in about a month.

After about 3 1/2 years of obsessing on brewing, then a few months of stepping back, still brewing but not obsessing... this year I'm going to work on balance.  Brew when I want and what I want, fish when I want, ride my Harley when I want... adding in a dash of gardening, bbqing, noodling around on stringed instruments, camping, checking out the total eclipse etc.

I'm glad I went crazy on brewing and learned what I learned, but now I'm enjoying just enjoying it.

Yes. I took my step back last year and then again this past summer. It's a wonderful hobby, but balance is key. I miss fishing (in fact I didn't buy a license this year), so that's also a goal of mine for next year.
If an obsession exists this year it will probably be fishing. I have both washington and Oregon license, and I recently got into fly fishing. In particular, two handed spey casting Skagit heads, swinging flies for stealhead. So far no fish but at least I've gotten to where I can cast the thing lol. With January coming i am looking forward to the winter runs on the Hood and Washougal.

Oh I bet that's a darn near perfect place for them, and somewhat sparingly to balance off the esters

Ingredients / Sorachi Ace

I got around to trying these in an IPA. Kinda went crazy with hops on this one. Bittered with Chinook. 150g each of CTZ Amarillo and Sorachi Ace whirlpool 170 for 15. Then another 150g each for dry hop.

It's an IPA! And all I get is Sorachi Ace... after one pint, the whole world tastes and smells like Sorachi Ace for about an hour.

Final analysis: don't worry about Sorachi Ace shining through in a blend unless the other hops out weigh it by like 5 to 1. And, by the way, not bad if you really like Sorachi Ace. If you don't like them, it will probably kill you.

I look forward to it every year. The label is just so christmasy. I like it, but I'd be happy if I could get their stout on a regular basis.


Yeah, I love their stout, too. It's pretty underrated.

They have a coffee stout in their winter mixed 12 pack that is awesome. I wish they would sell that on it's own.
I'll look for it

I'm sorry to hear your Strong Pale didn't turn out the way you liked. I was thinking of making something similar. Any tasting notes or reasons why you think it didn't succeed?
Not hoppy enough. Probably why you hear of Imperial IPA, Imperial Stout, but not Imperial pale ale

This is one big reason why I don't enter competitions (except that one time when I was tricked into it and, um, took first place). I have a small crew of trusted tasters and if they say it's good and I say it's good, then it's good.
The best reason to enter competitions is to help raise funds for the host club in a fun way.
