All Grain Brewing / Re: Yesterday's brew morning b4 werk

I work evenings so it is a bit different for me.  I just had the brew equipment out and ready and the grain
weighed out ready to grind....I started at 0630 and put the lid on the fermenter at 11;30.  I washed
a few items the next day while it was still cool outside.  A good brew day it was.

Went so nice!  Kind of had a slow runoff but ended good.

I am putting this on the record so I can have a digital track of this beer.

I put 10# of pilsner
1# of jaggery
3 handfuls of pale choc
2 handfuls of carafoam
1 handful of wheat malt
1# of vienna

Some amarillo (1oz.)  Some Tetnang (.5 oz)
2-3 tbl spoons of large juniper berries (been in the freezer for 2 months just waiting)
some wyeast nutrient and whirlyfloc and added lots of oxygen to
the end wert that rang in at 1.078 O.G.

fermentation has launched using 3711 saison yeast even tho
it is prolly a bit dark for the style...what the is farmhouse ale.

I just had some odds and ends I needed to utilize.

sorry no hydro pix this time...I was under the gun to get er done...

Edit: Starter was 1 quart with about 3/4 " sediment in the bottom of the jar when crash cooled

I tried an all Colombus beer that was an attempt at a clone of the Avery Hog Heaven beer.
I missed the OG so I just call it an APA .... anyhow it sure is reminiscent of Grapefruit from the Hops.

-10 cool points for lack of Shemp. Shemp is the best stooge :P

Pfft. you must be drinking already. Curly trumps Shemp any day of the week.
Why do you think they made all the smileys on the internet look like Curly and not Shemp?
 ;D ;) :P

How bout your harvest?

I failed to hit my numbers...only 69 bales on 3 acres.
But it is still fun, stacking against the winter, even if your ingredients don't add up to what you wished. ;)

Cheers to the American Farmhouse.

Whats with that number?? That is how many bales I got as well....weirdness.  I got a hint about it tho....
spend some coin on the guy down the way....the mower could barely cut thru it bc it was so thick.

A really drinkable beer that I will purchase when I can find it.
Brewed in Hamilton Montana...they did a great job on this beer.

Did you use any specialty malts or is the color contribution from the cherries alone.  Your beer looks like a good reddish/tan leather.  

Yes there are specialty malts and from the photo trail I show, it has changed from dark  ruby brown
to this lighter color must be from the cherries...tankdeer, that is really how it looked  NOT very clear yet.....
Look closely there are whitish flecks in it....pellicle and mehlab chunks...they are in focus.

goggle " herman holtrop rochefort" and that is the base recipe I follow sort of...

Sampled this beer today and got an update photo for you all...

the stuff is coming together nicely, NOT finished yet however.
Aroma is Cherry Pie, flavor is sour cherry for sure, and the mahleb finishes with a
nifty floral thing, not much oakiness yet....color has migrated from dark brown/red to lighter brown with red hues.
chunks of pellicle and mahleb floating around.

well if it ain't a prize winner, at least I think I can enjoy this! oh, and I have been known to share.
I think a couple more months might not be a bad thing for this beer.

  I may need to buy stock in bottles though.  Until I brew again, I will be working on improving my fermenter and getting a bigger brew pot. 

Too Late for you...ha ha ha ha are need to buy a Keg setup and stop messing with bottles...

when you do, life gets you can always bottle from the keg.

If you really want to get wild, cut a couple or 3 fresh sprigs of Juniper branch
add to some hot wert long enough to stew some flavor out... then add that liquid to
your cooling wert as it is going in the fermenter....don't over do it tho, unless you like
the taste of gin flavored beer...and because there are oils that might hinder head retention.

Research the term "Sahti"

I am gonna brew a saison soon with Juniper berries.  Hint; Freeze the juniper for a spell
prior to crushing and putting in the boil for better extraction of flavors.
Have fun and good luck.
