Yeah, I wasn't sure about the IBUs being that high and I don't generally care for EKG in excess but I thought it would age significantly in a couple years which was my goal. It is quite possible I will tone it down before I actually brew it. Thanks for all the feedback!

I normally brew 10 gallon batches, batch sparge and always outside. Brewing is a great excuse for me to be outdoors. I like in the south though so the weather cooperates.

I am in the process of building an electric system that I will unveil it here in a few weeks or so.

I can't wait to see the new system major. I'm in the process of building a Brutus 10 system .It will be a few months before it's complete.

Right now..I have a 15 gallon keggle for my kettle and a cooler for a mash tun. It's similiar to Denny's system.

This one is based on the Brutus X too, kinda. We are actually going gas first and then intstalling the electric as we go. We are testing it tomorrow. I will give a little hint - it uses three 55 gallon stainless steel drums.  ;D

One thing I do since I mash in a cooler is is I use a "bucket heater" and a Digital Johnson controller w/thermowell. Set my mash-in temp the night before and get my water ready so I can just dough-in first thing the next AM after a cup of coffee or three. Works like a champ!!

Beer Recipes / Old Ale
« on: November 05, 2009, 07:28:23 AM »
I have a smack pack of WYEAST9097 Old Ale Blend and LOTS of sacks of Maris Otter laying around that I need to use. Never brewed an old ale before. I have a lot of crystal in the recipe because of the Brett strain in the yeast blend. Also bumped up the hops quite a bit, maybe too much? Take a look see and see what ya'll think.

Ol' Crusty
Old Ale
6 gallons
OG 1.080
IBU ~90

15 lbs Maris Otter (Thomas Faucett)
2lbs Crystal 80L

2 oz Challenger (8aa) @ 60
2 oz EKG (5.5 aa) @ 30 min
2 oz EKG *5.5 aa) @ 5 min

BTW, it doesn't really say it in the recipe but the sauce is the real star here. Be sure to pour lots of it over the stir fry and rice.

The other question is, not only what are your brewing, who WHO are you brewing with this weekend?  Make it a party every time!


Myself. People tend to get in my way.  ;)

I'm pretty sure as long as you follow the Brewer's Code nothing bad could possibly happen. The code, for anyone who doesn't know it, is simple. "Don't be a dick". 8)

That said, good natured ribbing is always welcome IMO.  ;)

Yeast and Fermentation / Re: Brewing with a yeast starter
« on: November 04, 2009, 01:44:50 PM »
All you really want is a 1/4-1/2 inch dimple. Otherwise you have a much higher chance of throwing the stir bar. Any faster than this won;t do you any more good, just keep the yeast suspended and you will have great results!
