It’s a good thing I don’t know your address. I would just show up and knock on the door looking for some of your brews. ;)

Just put a Celebration-style pale ale in the fermenter: 93 percent 2-row, 7 percent crystal 50/60, Safale 05, Chinook and Cascade hop combo. Will dry hop with either Chinook or Chinook & Cascade. Never thought when I started brewing five years ago that I'd brew something close to an IPA, but this is my second attempt at this style, and I can't wait to taste the results.

Started in on my new sack of Crisp Chevallier "heritage" malt, and new crop whole cone hops.   Pale ale with a little inspiration from reading lots of Ron Pattinson's old recipes, after all it's old timey barley -- 10% of extract from No. 1 Invert.  Chinook,  Cascade,  Mt Hood and plenty of Willamette.

The Chevallier was a b**** to mill, and even with a fairly intensive mash (150° 45 min 160° 45 min 170° 15 min) yielded less extract than most anything I'm familiar with.  (I expected and accounted for that.)  But wow.  The wort has superb aroma, flavor, and even mouthfeel and apparent foam capacity (despite the sugar.) Would think there was some specialty malt in there.  Can't wait for this one.  And yes, the sack is a nice wall hanger.  Long brew day though.

I have set up the brewery to make an APA tomorrow with Double Eagle Rustic malt, Munich II and a little cara rye.  I will use the same kinds of free hops from past Homebrecons as I did my last APA - Experimental grapefruit from 2014 and cryo hops to dry hop.  It worked out really well before.

I love (a) uncluttered recipes and (b) this time of year for the darker beers. They’re by far my favorites. Not sure I’ll brew this week or next week but I do know I am going to brew a Munich Dunkel.



Based on Brewing Classic Styles it’ll look like this:

96% Munich II
4% Carafa Special III

I haven’t decided if I’ll add a touch of Victory suggested by Josh Weikert or not. We’ll see. If so it’ll be:

92.3% Munich II
3.3% Carafa Special III
4.4% Victory

I will use 23 IBU(s) of Tettnang for the hops as recommended by Kai Troester and Josh Weikert. 

I have decided to give MJ M84 a try vs my usual S-189 Lager yeast.  I hope that’s not a disappointing decision.
