Summer order
« on: June 19, 2013, 09:12:08 PM »
Just ordered up stuff to get me through summer. A pound each of Simcoe, Cascade, Centennial, Willamette, Mt Hood. Ten pounds each of Munich, CaraRed, Crytal 10 and 40. Still have a 55# sack of castle pilsner, about 40# of MO, and about 30# 2 row, some other odds and ends. Think I'm set for a couple months.

You must use Munich as a base in something huh?

My summer list looks something like:
Paint windows
Fix gate
Strip and refinish doors
etc.

Wish I had more brewing on my list.

No kidding !  I need to whittle the "honeydo" list down a few notches.  Got a couple Belgians to brew coming up.

I use at least a few pounds of munich in almost every recipe and have at least two recipes I like that are 100% or nearly 100% munich.

I buy munich by the sack as well.  I don't go through it as quickly as my other base malts but I use enough that it's worth buying in bulk.

+1.  Very few styles wouldn't benefit from at least a lb of Munich (if not a good bit more).

Summer brewing would be nice.  Here in South Central Iowa we mow lawn, clean gutters and try not to melt in the heat and humidity.  Any remaining time is spent making sure my 2 oldest are ready to go to, or back to, college this fall. :)

I have no tree leaves near the house, don't water the lawn thus mowing is a once a month job, kids all grown, so... brew weekly. Lucky me

I see your list and raise you a kitchen remodel and a chicken coop. Also a two year old.

Munich Dunkels come to mind... :)

My stock is up to about 8-9lbs of hops, sacks of Best Malz Munich & Pilsner, Castle Pilsen, Crisp MO and some Cargill Pale malt. I love being able to brew whatever I want without having to go to the store.

Although some of my friends refer to my beer room as the homebrew shop.  ;D

My brewing is kinda all over the place right now, and since I only brew 3 gallons at a time I haven't gotten around to picking up any sacks of base malt. I don't think I've used the same base malt twice in a row in the past 4 or 5 months. I usually try to think 2 or 3 brews in advance when I buy my base malt, however, and I keep a decent library of specialty grains.

Hops, on the other hand, is a different beast altogether. I'm pretty sure I have more pounds of hops on hand right now than grain.
