Beer Travel / Chicago trip

My wife & I are traveling to Chicago this weekend. Are there any breweries / brewpubs that you would recommend? Goose Island is close to where we are staying so we'll probably check that out. Any other good ones to check out?

Out of curiosity how long does it take to ramp from one temp to another on the Zymatic?

Those are all some great looking stashes. I should really start my own Christmas stash. Although, everytime I get a bomber of something I'm so excited I end up drinking it right away.

I guess I'll find out how this recipe turns out without crystal malt in it. All my previous American IPA recipes have had some. Although I also have reduced the amount of crystal malt over the years.

Good points on the blending base malts. I also like the idea of omitting crystal malt from American IPA/APA.

Sounds like a fun brew day. FWIW I've done decoction for some lagers. It's not difficult. It just takes extra time. Not sure that it really effects the flavor. Although, if you don't pull a large enough decoction then you don't hit your temp.

I only had 7.8kg of Maris Otter. That's why I added the pilsen malt. Incidentally, the pilsen malt is the only other base malt I had in the house. I hope it helps balance it out.

Sounds tasty, Jim! I use US-05 quite a bit. It's so easy to use. I just took a sample of the wort after I transferred it to the fermenter. OG is 1.068.It tastes pretty good. Now to see how it tastes after fermentation.

Yeah, I hear ya. It's what I had in my stash. I was at Northern Brewer in Milwaukee yesterday and could have picked up some ingredients but thought I had some American pale malt. Guess I was wrong

Hey all,
  Wondering what you think of this recipe. I realized I didn't have the ingredients I would normally use for an IPA. Thus, I had to improvise a bit. Also, I have never used Waimea hops.

10 gal batch

67% Muntons Maris Otter
30% Weyermann Pilsen
3% Briess Bonlander Munich
2oz Magnum 60min
2 oz Chinook 15min
0.5 oz Waimea 15min
0.5 oz Amarillo 15min
1 oz Chinook 1min
1.5 oz Waimea 1min
1.5 oz Amarillo 1min
2 oz Chinook dry hop
1 oz Waimea dry hop
1 oz Amarillo dry hop
US-05 yeast

Cheers,
Brandon

It took me a bit to figure out what that meant as well. Absolutely hilarious, after I figured it out. Btw, would be a great name for a beer.

You're recipe sounds interesting. Although, the amount of crystal malt along with the honey malt is going to make a rather sweet beer. Honey malt gets overpowering quite easily. I would lower the honey malt to 2% and even lower the crystal malt 10% or less. I tend to prefer Simcoe blended with other hops. Although, if you're only using it for bittering it may be ok by itself.
