Jon,

I brewed out of Zymurgy last weekend, but the current issue.  I had a full bag of T. Fawcett Golden Promise so from among the many mouth-watering gold-winning recipes, selected Dennis Collins' English Pale Ale.  But it was on a whim so substituted Mangrove Jack Burton Union yeast available at my LHBS, instead of the recipe's WY 1028 (London Ale Yeast), and I "burtonized" my water profile per the Pale Ale profile in Bru'n Water.  Still, it's looking like it will be a very nice beer!

I really like your hops selection for you AIPA - sounds really good.

Thanks!  I think you picked a nice one. Golden Promise is such an underrated malt. Report back how it comes out!

I kegged today and both buckets came out with a terminal gravity of 1.011, right on the nose -- mashed at 152 but there's a bunch of crystal malt in this recipe.  Hydro samples tasted phenomenal.  With this MGJ Burton Union yeast, there were scattered tiny bits of yeast on the surface, so I should have cold crashed first but still, the remainder of the yeast flocculated very well so no biggy.  Big THANK YOU to Martin Brungard for his wonderful software plus numerous forum contributions that make it so much easier to make great beer custom fit to numerous beer styles, with chemistry..., water chemistry that is!

Brewing has been slow, but I just kegged some Octoberfest and put it on the gas. Should be perfect for tailgating in 2 weeks. It's kinda funny that for as much as I love hops, my 'fest is the first recipe I've dialed in and brewed multiple batches of using the same recipe.

I'm in the middle of the boil on a winter warmer, Maris otter cinnamon and vanilla bean. Not too high gravity so it should be ready this winter, not next.

Sounds tasty. What's your yeast?

American mild. 67% 6 row 30% flaked rye/wheat 3% caramel 120. Used chinook, mt. Hood, and brewer's gold for hops at various stages, and 1450 for the yeast. We'll see. My mash temp was much lower than I wanted, so this may be a hoppy cream ale. Brewed 10 gallons. The other half is going to be a braggot with carrot blossom honey,  and apple juice.

The body might not be quite what you wanted, but it'll have the spiciness of the rye and some dark caramel character. I think it sounds pretty good ! And the 1450 will help with mouthfeel a little - great yeast.

Thanks! I think it will be good. Just not what I had in mind. I'm hoping the 30% flaked grain will give it a big body.

Brewed a Session IPA on Saturday with Cascade and Centennial (FWH, 15 and 0 additions) that I'm going to split into 5 1 gallon jugs and dry hop with different combinations of hops (Citra, Amarillo, Simcoe, etc).

You may want to dry hop each with one hop variety, then blend the resulting beers, if you're looking to taste-test different hop combos.

Great way to compete too

Today it's double batching for a Christmas party at a friends house - Vienna lager 20 gallons.  Big brew day for me.
