Suggest a brew for next weekend
« on: November 08, 2009, 10:41:55 AM »
I'm stumped on what to brew next weekend.  Either a 10 gallon ale or a five gallon lager.   I've already got two kegs of German pils, a keg of dunkel, and an ipa & bock that will be in carboys. 
I've got about 14 lbs of maris otter, 40 lbs of best pils, bunch of different crystals, 4 each of Munich and Vienna. For hops, magnum, hallertau and centennial.   Yeast-  wy 2124, 2206 and US 05. 
Maybe some amber ale?   Or a dortmunder?   Open to any other sugestions.  Thanks!

dortmunder'd be nice - let me know if you want a recipe - mine comes out a dead ringer for GLDG and is one of my favorite house beers.

amber ale'd be nice with the munich, some medium crystal and those cents.

Guess I didn't help you decide.

Maybe amber ale since you already have pils on tap.

Yeah I've got a great amber recipe.  Maris, Munich, crystal 65 and a bunch of centennial.  Next time I make it I wanna try fwh.    By all means, give me the dortmunder recipe.  Been thinking about one of those for awhile

I would get a Saison going so you could have it ready by summer. Just my 2 cents worth  ;D

I've been thinking Vienna lager. I don't have a recipee. I do have the guide lines.;

The Association of Brewers defines the beer class Vienna lager as a reddish brown or copper colored beer with medium body and slight malt sweetness. The malt aroma and flavor may have a toasted character. Hop bitterness should be clean and crisp. Noble-type hop aroma and flavor should be low or mild. As with most lagers, fruitiness due to esters is a defect. Diacetyl, which can impart a butterscotch aroma and flavor, should not be perceptible.

Vienna lager
 
Country of origin Austria
Yeast type Bottom-fermenting
Alcohol by volume 4.5% - 5.7%
Color (SRM) 10 - 16
Bitterness (IBU) 18 - 30
Original Gravity 1.046 - 1.052
Final Gravity 1.010 - 1.014
I wasn't even in town that day, I swear.

With all that pils and Hallertauer, I'd go get some Belgian yeast and brew a tripel.

Beer is like porn. You can buy it, but it's more fun to make your own.

If you brew a Dortmunder, make sure you pay attention to your water profile - or at the very least make sure you are starting from somewhat hard water.  I've brewed Blatz's recipe and it's good (maybe great?  still working on my water profile).

Good luck!

A Marzen jumps at me,
But I'd make 5 gallons of a big Barleywine.

sorry - just saw this for some reason.

sure - will have to wait till I get home. 

I may try and figure out that wiki thing and then just post a link, but that may be too technologically advanced for the likes of me.

This is the season for brewing Miabock.  Here's a good recipe from Braukaiser: http://braukaiser.com/wiki/index.php?title=Maibock
...it's liquid bread, it's good for you!
