On Saturday, I brewed the second iteration of one of my 3 house ipa recipes, called Hop Chomp,  replacing Galaxy hops with Cascade to hopefully tone down the tropical fruit I had in the first version.

On Sunday I brewed a German Pils using low oxygen techniques.  I had a couple of glitches that were easy to work around.  I wetted the malt a bit too much for mill conditioning and it took forever to run through the mill, but it worked.  Pre-boiling the water works better if you don't have to change the propane tank right in the middle of the brew session.  Later I opened up two one-ounce packets of Sterling hops that I had purchased the day before only to find the pellets brown and odorless, so I had to find a good substitute in the freezer.
Anyway, it wasn't too bad and I made ten gallons of very pretty wort.
And I smoked a rack of ribs. :)

Last week I brewed the latest (and next to last) test version of my American mild.  8 trials so far and I think the next one will be the one I've been going for.  Then I used the yeast from that for a batch of Rye IPA.  Brewing twice in one week!  Amazing!

Looking forward to hearing how those malts turn out.  And that's one of your better label designs -- always read the fine print!  ;D

I’m going to take another go at a hoppy blonde ale I’ve been working on.

Just wrapped up an APA using Pale from West Branch Malts -- locally grown and malted -- for my base.

I’ve wanted to try their malt and take a tour of their facility. Let us know what you think of it.

I used it just once (before today that is) and was really pleased, nice full flavor and good performance, and I've heard only good reviews from others.  LHBS says it's flying out the door.  At first impression it seems a notch above the nationals, and cheaper for me.  Just bought a 50 lb sack for $49.99!  (To wean myself off the ~$90 Crisp Chevallier... ;D )

Good to hear. I was reluctant to order a bag because the shipping was about the same as the price of a bag. I think I might have to make a road trip and visit some breweries and grab a bag of malt.

Helles

1047 OG
97.5% Pilsner
2.5% Carafoam
19.7 IBU Hallertau (US) @ FWH
1.3 IBU Hallertau (US) @ 5
Jever water
MJ M54 California Lager

This is my first time using M54. I hear good things. Fermenting at 62F. We’ll see how it goes.

OG was going to be a little higher but I am having trouble with efficiency right now on the GF.

Brewed a Rye Bock Friday night and a classic APA on Saturday (2row/C60L and Cascade).  Both are happily fermenting now - now it’s time to enjoy Sunday and a few beers...

I'm trying my hand and BIAB for the first time on Saturday.  Going to do a simple Belgian Pale Ale.  Looking forward to it!
