Cancelled Brew Day to Go Black Friday Shopping
« on: November 23, 2011, 08:03:06 AM »
 ;D Yeah Right!!!  ;D  - Not in a million %#$@%%^ years.

Doing a big beer on Friday.  Kate the Great clone from the Portmsouth Brewery.  RIS with OG of 1.104.  The grain bill ( for 5 gallons ) is about 25lbs....my first "real" test for my mash tun ( Coleman Xtreme 72qt - Blue of course ).  I have a nice big amount of yeast slurry I pulled off of a pale ale last night in the fridge.  In a few weeks, it will be aging in a keg with port soaked oak spirals.

Can't wait to see this one rockin' the top of the fermenter!!!

Happy Thanksgiving everyone.

I was going to say "what's wrong with you?"

Even though I can't brew until Sunday because the wife has family coming in on Friday.

But I brewed last Monday, so I'm OK for a few days.  I've got two empty kegs, though, which makes me think I'm not keeping pace...

Oatmeal stout for me on Friday.  Had a hankerin' yesterday and decided that's what needs to be brewed next.  Toasted my oats last night for an hour at 325F.  Kinda wonder if I over toasted them; they're pretty golden brown.  Thoughts? Concerns? Suggestions?

I'm brewing a "Sasquatian Ale" in preperation for a local competition for next years NHC.  If successful, y'all will get to try it.  Remember the theme for the Seattle NHC is "Brewing with Bigfoot"

Whew. I thought we were going to have to plan an intervention AND revoke a man card. 
Friday, I'm canceling everything to brew a Schwarzbier with experimental Czech lager yeast.
Happy Thanksgiving all!

25 lbs is a cinch for the 72qt extreme. I maxed mine out at 32 lbs

More brown than golden? Taste 'em and see if you pick up any burnt flavors. It should be pretty obvious.

Just so you didn't think I wussed out:



Efficiency really took a hit on this one.  Added some DME and plan to boil a bit long to get close.

Efficiency?  You can see the bottom of the kettle.  That's a mighty light beer for a dark beer kind of guy...   :D
