gonna brew a wit beer with meyer lemon and blood orange zest. MIL is coming to visit for her bday in late feb. gotta keep her happy.

Blood Orange makes a great beer! Havent tried meyer lemon but that sounds yummy.  Ive actually even used blood orange zest in a Cal Common boil and then used the meat in the fermenter which I peeled about 8 blood oranges cut them into segments and put them in a pot with 160 water and held steady for about 15 minutes then cooled and added all that to the fermenter. That keg was gone in 1 day!

I was thinking about adding some blood orange juice and calling it a bloody wit. Or some midnight wheat and calling is a black wit. If you didn't add any wheat at all would it be a lack wit?

or a Nimwit..either way

but isnt Wit actually White...so a black wit would be kinda counter intuitive. its a new beer style! haha

Brown Porter going right now. I always brew on Ground Hog's Day. Sort of an homage to my roots. I grew up in Western PA, pert near Gobbler's Knob. I actually bottled my first ever brew on 2/2/99!! Looking at my notes today I see it turned out pretty good, hit my numbers before I even knew that was a goal! A stout extract kit that hit 1.011 FG. Not bad. Dry yeast.
 
APA on Saturday.

Maybe bottle or rack an experimental Maple Porter if I get bored with the SB commercials.

Nice!  Belgian Pale was what I brewed last weekend.  Gonna use the yeast cake from it for a Quad next weekend

Milling the grains for one of my favorite recipes, a Patersbier right now. I'm going to use a small of amount the New Zealand Rakau hops with Styrian Celeja, instead of the usual Saaz. Calling it "Peter Visits the Kiwis".
So it goes.

Got the BoPils in the fermenter yesterday and just started the boil for the CAP.  So far a pretty smooth brewing weekend.

Since the Pale is basically just a big yeast starter for the Quad later on, I went with WY3787 Trappist High Gravity.

Finally the Harvest ale of 2011 has been brewed. I chose a Rye Pale Ale this year, showcasing my hops. FWH, Late hop, massive dry hop. I'll let you know in 6 weeks.

No brewing, but today I racked an IPA and saved the slurry to pitch in RIS that I'm brewing a week from Monday.
It's such a fine line between stupid and clever.
