Just finished up the pils and drinking the Dortmunder just tapped this week.  Will keg the Hefeweizen tomorrow.  Really getting into the German beers although I still have an IPA on tap for the moments I'm digging the hops.  This  one's an all Centennial (West Coast style) very dry finish, smack you in the mouth up front bitterness, lots of hop flavor and aroma.  This one is 7% crystal and no chill because of the snow issue we had back in February.  I think I will stick to the 10 - 15% crystal formula though, I seem to prefer more body and a sweeter finish.

Dang brewing 15 gallons on my setup is a real work day. I am on the last 5 gallons boiling now.
Looking forward to chilling and clean up...that solera was a blessing and a real chore.
I hit the numbers on the 1st 10 gallons, and will see what the second  boil @five gal produces.
I am tired, long long brew day.

I gotta say tho, I am now loving Sterling hops, those are so good when used in dry hop mode....yummo
 ;D

Edit: Hit the numbers on the last boil as well. worked nice...but, stick a fork in me I'm done
WHEW all aeriated and pitched....more clean up tomorrow...

Well, the Hop Woo is done and burbling away in the kegs.

Today's split brew will be a Citra Saison and a amber spiced Belgian.
