All Centennial IPA.   Been wanting to do this for a while, not much happening here today, did our Valentine's day stuff last night so I have a free day to brew.

 smoked oatmeal stout, strike water heating as i type
 

 (up-date)  had a very good brew day, hit all my #'s on spot, everything went like clock-work, got everything washed-up
and had all small stuff air-drying on a towell spread on a table (outdoors). i go an draw me the first pint of the day,  i walk back
outside just as a Jay-bird landed on my false bottom, took a crap on it, then grabed my only stir-bar and flew away with it. :o  >:( ???    i may have invented a few new curse words

Timothy Taylor Best Bitter from Wheeler & Protz 'Brew your own British Real Ale', with a slight mod.

OG 1.039, IBU 32

6.5 lb Maris Otter
.5 lb British Crystal 55L
1 oz Roasted Barley
.75 lb Demerara sugar

1.75 oz Styrian Golding 3.5% 90 min
1 oz fuggle 4% 90 min
.33 oz EKG 5% 15 min

mash @154F for 60 min, 1.1 qt / lb

I'm splitting this into 5 one-gallon fermenters, using wlp005, wy1318, wy1469, wy1968, and S04 to see which yeast gives me the best 'Brit' character.

and 2 g gypsum per gallon of water to get an RA of -10


Thats a great book.
I've had mine for years.

Late start as I looked for a fermenter this AM...........didnt have one!
Had to rack an Impy Stout out of secondary (needed to be bottled up anyway)
Hope to be done in time to have the house cleaned up for when the wife gets home.

On draught:
IIPA, Stout, Hefeweizen, Hallertau Pale Ale, Bitter

Primary:
Hefeweizen,Berliner Weisse, Mead

Are you serious?!?!  That is the craziest thing I have ever heard!  Hope that Jay doesn't land on anything with a magnetic pull!    ;)
