Brewing a stout tomorrow.  It's the one I described in this topic: https://www.homebrewersassociation.org/forum/index.php?topic=33237.0.  The starters were made this morning and are going well.  Hoping to start crushing grain in about 10 hours.  Can't wait ;D

What's Brewing this Weekend?

I have a series of Pale Ales planned for the summer. It’s an idea I got from More Beer: an uncomplicated recipe of 2 row and Medium Crystal with Magnum as the bittering charge. The 10 and 1 minute finishing hops will be 10 IBU each of a single variety of hop.  Each will be inoculated with Cablecar yeast. The idea is to experience each hop on a common base while simultaneously validating that I have repeatable brewhaus consistency. Each label will be uncomplicated and common as well with the simple variation of displaying the hop name. The idea is the hop is the star of the show. Here’s the upcoming brew:

That's the kind of project that can be very rewarding and fun.  A couple of summers ago, I did a series of American hopped Pilsners.   Each a basic single malt beer, brewed just as I would a conventional Pilsner, with various hops more usually associated  with APA or AIPA.  Really let the hops express themselves.  I now am very fond of American hopped Pilsner, and am currently using it as a test bed for pressure fermented lagers.   I also now know some hops I really love, and some I definitely don't.

Got a little Bohemian-inspired with today's brew.

6.33 gallons

12.4°P

94.7% West Branch Pale Malt
5.3% Gambrinus Honey Malt
 
FWH only, 4 oz of Ted's wonderful, beautiful, sticky, smelly, whole-cone Saaz (whence the inspiration.)
 
WLP833 (this is the 6th generation of the pressure fermentation run, I'll probably post a batch of data after this one finishes.)

Knocked out version 4 of Tuckers Amber Ale this afternoon.  Looking for that perfect toasty, malty, caramelly hoppy and drinkable balance.  Was almost there on 3 hopefully this is the goods.

I'm more of a hop head, but man ambers and reds just go down so easy. Two vessel electric setup?
