And the kids came home from swim practice and proceeded to be monsters, distracting me long enough that it boiled over.

Deja vu for me. :D  That's my biggest obstacle to doing a double batch (hell, a single batch some times). That and I'm getting to be an old fart and it's not as much fun to do a double as it was at 25.

Yeah, I gave up on the double batch.  It is all measured out and everything, but I didn't crush the grain so I just stuck it in a bag and I'll do it next weekend (or maybe I'll have to miss a day of work for unknown reasons).
Risk of failure should be no deterrent to trying.

Doing my wife's apricot beer tomorrow. I decided to keep it somewhat interesting and use a Dingemann Pils base, along with WY3522. 


Gotta love hitting all numbers in a 4.5 hour brewday including cleanup. No long mash, no hopstand. Easy peasy.

;D   Well the APA I do next will take a good bit longer with the hopstand. And the lagers I've been doing lately got mashed longer. So a quick one is nice.

I'm on a brewing break as I had to send my mill in to Barley Crusher for warranty repair. That was last Tuesday, so hoping it doesn't take much longer than a month. But it's okay, I can use a break anyway; have been drinking too much, hoping a break from brewing will help me slow my intake down a bit.

Trying to squeeze in an APA today after a 1/2 day of work, sawing some brick to make space for a new patio door, and picking up the boy from day care. To save time, I am going with a 45 minute mash and 45 minute boil.

60% pilsner
20% munich light
20% german wheat

~38 IBU Bravo 45 min
2 oz equinox 2 min
1 oz simcoe 2 min
2 oz equinox DH
1 oz simcoe DH

1.055
US05 or K97
~50 IBU

On Tap/Bottled: IPL, Kolsch, bitter, Czech pils

Fermenting:
Up Next: amber lager, Italian pils

Couldn't make it happen but got the patio door framed and installed. Maybe Sunday since my donkeys don't play until Monday...

Gonna do an attempt at a lodo APA this weekend with the Cleopatra hops I bought a few months back. Will preboil, use a 50 ppm meta dose, utilizing Brewtan as well to hopefully help to negate my copper IC's potential oxidation. Looking forward to the results.
