I made a couple stirplate starters that are ready to be decanted (10 gal batch), using k97 from my last brew of a kolsch, and tomorrow am going to make a Uerige-style Dusseldorf altbier, based on Denny's old clone info, but cheating slightly on malt ingredients to use what I have on hand. And my water profile calcium ratio will use a bit more chloride than sulfate. I'm going estimated 1.048 OG, 41 IBUs, target pH of 5.4 and mashing at 149F for 90 minutes.
Well, I brewed the alt, and tagged on my first try at a New England style Pale Ale as well, with Summit (bittering) and at 1 minute Galaxy, Calypso, Mosaic and a bit of Citra.
22 gallons (to yield 20 gal beer) in a 10.5 hr day (including clean-up and put away), that's also a first for me. All went very well actually.
