Golden Strong Ale to be aged on tequila soaked oak

When I was at the Zythos fest in Leuven recently, I had a chance to try a Duvel aged in a Scotch barrel. Outstanding!

That sounds like a great combination.

Thanks. Kind of going out on the limb with this one. I thought the phenolic/estery yeast character might go well with the peppery tequila notes.

No brewing this weekend.  My wife and I are flying to Rhode Island Saturday to spend some time there together before the conference.  We booked an airbnb in Newport.

Going to brew a Cream Ale tomorrow:

4# 2-Row
.75# Flaked Maize
.25# Carapils
.125# Corn Sugar (Boil)

Lemondrop Hops, up and down the line.

US-05

I'm also going to try and slightly adjust the water based on my lab results and the calculator at Brewer's Friend. Very small additions of gypsum and lactic acid.  We shall see.

Yesterday brewed a new recipe I just developed, 10 gallons of El Dorado Comet Galaxy IPA.  Used mostly Great Western High Color Pale Malt (23 lbs), plus 11% flaked oats (3.5 lbs), 3 lbs wheat malt, and 1 lb CaraPils.  Did a 13.5 gal batch size, so as to leave behind a couple gallons of spooge/break in the kettle.    Mashed at 150F.  Hops at 60 minutes (Warrior and Comet), 30 minutes (Comet), 3 minutes, and 0 minutes, and chilled/added 0 minute addition at 194F wort temp which then dropped a few degrees during a 20-minute hop stand.  About 74 IBUs, 1.065 OG (hit target!).  Fermenting with Imperial Joystick (Pacman) at 63F.  The wort hydro sample was deep tropical/fruity, a bit dank, and good!

American Pale Ale. First brew on my new Picobrew Z1.

2.5 gallons.
47% Briess Brewers malt
48% Viking European 2-row Pale
5% Caramel 40
30 IBU Chinook FWH
0.33 oz Chinook @ 1
0.33 oz Centennial @ 1
0.33 oz Chinook @ whirlpool
0.33 oz Centennial @ whirlpool

Recipe crafter predicts 1054 OG using a 90 minute single infusion mash and a mashout step. I am not sure I will get that given the Briess and Viking malts have given me lower extraction. We’ll see.

Edit: actual SG according to Tilt: 1046.
