Dads Day Brew?
« on: June 15, 2013, 09:46:24 PM »
Anyone spending the day brewing?

I'm doing a Fathers D' APA. MO and 2row base,  Vienna Munich and crystal 15 steeping, Simcoe and cascade hops. Pretty basic but a great way to spend the day.

Dads Day Brew?

Bittering it up. Uk 2 row, crystal, and that oh so special roast, and some torrified/terrified wheat. Nothing but first gold hops. 1968.

On another note, I use muntons 2 row, I need a new sack, not to hijack but goon to try something new for next sack. Sticking to ukish, what are the preferences between bairds, fawcett, and crisp?

Brewing up a wit.  Just getting started actually which is later than my usual start time but I'm taking it easy today.  My wife took the kids out and they've got a full day of stuff planned to keep them busy.

My older son gave me a painted brick.  He said it's a door stop.  I'm trying to figure out where I can incorporate it in the brewing process.  Maybe I'll use it to prop up the mash tun when I'm running off.

No brewing today for me. Our Father's Day tradition is strawberry picking and we scored big time today. I'll keep a pound or two in the fridge for snacking and the rest is going in the freezer for a mead later this summer.

I brewed yesterday, a chocolate/coffee porter, for my brew club's Iron brewer competition. Today, band practice, and dinner with the family.
Happy Father's Day to all the brewing dads out there!

Yep this is my second annual father's day parti gyle brew. Last year I said I would never do it again. But I guess it's like having kids, you forget what a pain in the arse they are and want more.

First runnings is an imperial oatmeal stout using cold steeped dark grains. Second runnings will be an English bitter. Heating up the water now for the bitter.

Doing a black IPA today with my boys! Going to call it Angus Lives! Black IPA after our dearly departed and much loved black lab brew dog Angus!  Having some nice Donkey Punch chili beer from Black Bottle here in Fort Collins as our session beer, drinking it out my Arrogant Bastard Ale glass...one of last years Father's Day gifts. Life is good!!!

Absolutely Jeff.  Claus is fantastic.  Can't be too many places like that left. I had some pretty good sausages (and beer) when I went up your way to Frankenmuth last year.

His house made bacon is terrific too, as pretty much everything there. Small world - I'm 15 minutes from Beech Grove.
