Today I kegged 5 gallons and bottled 5 gallons of a Pannepot clone (Quadrupel), and kegged a hard cider.  I might brew a citra pale ale tomorrow.

I brewed the citra pale ale today and for the second time in a row got 79% efficiency where I used to get ~72%.  I'm sure that it is due to treating my sparge water as well as my mash water, made easy by ver. 1.12 of Bru'n Water.  I think the problem with the sparge before was my starting water's low calcium (>35ppm).  A new day is dawning!

Brewed a saison using WLP530.  I suppose it really doesn't make it a saison but I hope it's tasty.



Here is a pic of the hydro sample.

Gotta lot of catching up to do.
Today is a lower grav APA, tomorrow is an Irish Red, Wed will be an 10 gals of American Wheat (5 gals to be hit with raspberries), probably should work one day this week so Thurs is work day and Friday will be 10 gals of French Saison.  I'm gonna try (note I said "try") to just keep these 4 in rotation over the summer and focus on these.

Let's go with a Brown Ale, shall we? Perhaps from the Noti region of Oregon...

Going to make a beer filter/randall and filter a blackberry hef, then doctor it with more fruit or fruit essence.

Indiana Brewers Cup competition beers are also due soon! Bottling up a vintage Flanders, a sour tripel, and perhaps an IPA if time allows.

Wow... I did NONE of this last weekend. Poker went late on Saturday and gardening/oxtail stew was all I could manage on Sunday.

I've got some catching up to do!
