Saison was at the height of fermentation last night and hit 88. 

Where we're going, we don't need roads.

Starting to get my fall/ winter beers going. I'm brewing my first Dubbel this weekend.  Got the starter going this morning.  I went back and forth on 1214 and 3787 and decided that I'll go with 1214 this time around.  I may also get the first pumpkin brew going.

Don't worry, it's 565  ;D.  I split the batch with the new Belle dry saison yeast, so we'll see how that one tastes when fermented like wine.

I look forward to your tasting notes after using 3724 at that temp.  I'm curious about how Belle does at that temp too.

40 gallons in primary that will need to be racked as kegs open up.  I will keg 20 for sure and more if my guys finish off a keg or two Friday night.  Then a lager on Saturday - probably a copper lager.

I've got a Saison planned for tomorrow (apparently like a lot of other people).

I've been getting off track this summer with IPAs and ESBs; it's time to go back to Belgians.

The copper lager is a Vienna that is on the low OG side - so I am calling it Choirboy Lager....

Brewed 10 gallons of Imperial Pale Ale on 8/2, and will be brewing 15 gal Tasty APA on Monday. Have a New Zealand hopped Pale Ale in dry hopping stage now. American Wheat is finishing off and a nice Red is in the kegs. Still have to keg up the Double IPA and Belgian from the same boil, different yeast.

Brewing the Bombay Bomber from Steele's IPA. So far, so good. Sparging now. Put up an American Pale last week and a Vienna the week before. 'twas a good summer so far.
I've not seen bomber here in Michigan. Gotta get out west some day.

What's everyone got cooking for this weekend? I have a 3-day weekend since RI remains the last state to celebrate Victory Day (formerly VJ "Victory over Japan" day - kind of funny since we're one of the furthest states from Japan).

Going to be brewing my first hopstand & dry hop only IPA - pretty psyched about it, too. Citra, Motueka, Nelson plus either Columbus or Apollo and either Meridian or Legacy. Over a pound of hops for a 3-gallon batch. My software is saying 418 IBU's. This should be interesting lol.
