All the kegs are full.  My plan is to lay off drinking after the new year for a month or so.

No brewing.  Will begin cold crashing DIPA from a couple of weeks ago and put up a Christmas tree.

I don't see the benefit of doing an additonal diacetyl rest.  Although your FG is a bit high for that mash profile.  4 weeks in the primary and 4 days at 60 should have gotten you to the finish line.  I have not used that yeast, so I have no experience as to how well it attenuates.

I have 10 gallons of AAA slated for Monday celebrating Cinqo de Diciembre  ;)

curious, what's celebrating in the US on cinco de diciembre?, got my day off same day! i want to brew that day

Just because I get the day off.  Work has been rough over the last couple of months, it will be nice to get a breather.

Thanks for all your thoughts and prayers.  She was twelve and a half years old and lived every day with gusto.  Her litter mate died just 3 weeks before her.

Punkin was the alpha dog of the pack.  A square-jawed pup that was all attitude.  She will be missed mightily.  She was the third one this year.

I smoked fresh poblanos then put them in the dehydrator.

You have to smoke them low and slow. Mine were around 200-225. A couple hours at least and they collapsed, got all wrinkled but still fleshy. Then overnight in the dehydrator. Quite tasty.

Can't see why it wouldn't work for the humble jalapeño.

This is what I do.  It works for green or red.  Hard to get red ones here.  They have a tendency to go bad (get rot) before they trun all the way red.

Me too, but we can dream ;)

Recipe looks great.  I love green chile.  I like the smoked butt idea, too.

Yeast and Fermentation / Re: Lagers stress me out!

I think you'll gain more confidence as you get more batches under your belt. I also stressed my lager fermentations in the beginning but became more confident as I gained more experience with them.

Colder fermentations = slower fermentations.

And less Krausen as well.  The CO2 comes out of solution at a slower rate at lower temps.

 Lost another furry friend last week.  Second one this year.  RIP Mister :'(

sorry Jim - that's rough, man.  you'll see him again.

Thanks Paul.  We are all starting to show our age 'round these parts.  He was a real gentleman, as dogs go.

Nothing brewing this weekend.  Have to do some equipment maintenance.  The doppelbock from last weekend is happily bubbling away.  It's supposed to be cold and rainy here, may see some snow flurries.  Next up will be a DIPA.  Lost another furry friend last week.  Second one this year.  RIP Mister :'(
