What's Brewing this Weekend?
« Reply #2670 on: September 03, 2019, 02:21:12 AM »


Blonde Ale in fermenter. I am teaching a intro to home brewing class starting this month. This beer will be served at the first brew day.

94% Root Shoots Genie Pale
3% Honey malt
3% Wheat malt
Willamette and Amarillo 23 IBU
Bry-97 yeast

Looks like a very tasty beer!  How do like the Root Shoots?
I have only made one batch with a large percentage of the Root Shoot Genie Pale.

That beer is nice. The beer has more bread/cookie flavor than beer with most 2-row malts. The color is 2.5 SRM so the beer is a bit darker than normal.

I also have a bag of their Odyssey Pilsner. I am looking forward to trying that one.

95% Wheat Ale - redo

95% Wheat Malt
5% Caramel 40
Mosaic/Crystal FWH, 5, whirlpool, dry
Bry-97 yeast
1050 OG, 35 IBU

I am happy to report that the Picobrew Z1 handled this brew with ease. I added rice hulls: 5% of the grain bill weight.

The ingredients above are required for a homebrew club competition where we drafted ingredients from a list.

PS. The first batch has a small infection taste so I brewed it again.

2-gallon batch of Gravenstein cider, from juice purchased from a local apple stand. After over a decade of homebrewing, this is my first cider. Used Fresco yeast.

I finally get to brew with some Mecca Grade Malt. Going to brew a Munich Dunkel. It will be interesting to see the difference between this and German malts.

Yesterday night was ale, today will be lager and tomorrow will be brewing boza.

Also i want an ice maker for my freshly brewed beer because my refrigerator has stopped making ice and summers are about to come. I have read this guide and has found two options which are opal nugget and della portable and i am confused between these two options so please suggest me the best one out of these, it will be great if anyone would able to tell. I know this is off topic but had to ask this.

I was reading the guide the top pick it shows Opal Nugget Icemaker it gives 24pounds ice in 24 hours and does it have drainage? So that it will be easy to clean I was reading this post the top pick is IKICH Nugget it has some better features, first it gives 26 lbs of ice in 24 hours and second is the drainage pipe which is must for cleaning purpose, would you like to counter on this?

Next brew for me, maybe Saturday or early next week, Irish Red Ale, followed by either another batch of my coffee porter or my pumpernickel porter (haven't decided which one yet)

Sometime this week I'm gonna do an APA to test the new Brumalt from Great Western.  I'll use some bale cores from Yakima Chief and BRY-97 with it.  Currently fermenting a German style pils made with GW Idapils, Yakima Chief American Nobles and Lallemand Diamond Lager yeast.

Denny, when do you think the 2019 Veterans Blend will be coming out?  Where can an old vet get some for a tribute brew?

Brewing a pseudo Pseudo Sue recipe called Psycho Sue.  Using Galo yeast.  Didn't like the Galo with a Brut IPA, see how it goes with a hazy.
Some day we'll look back on this and it will all seem funny

I am all setup for an early start tomorrow AM. I’ll brew my nod to Ranger IPA.  Though I am using the same grist and hops, my riff will not be nearly as strong either in ABV or IBU.  However, I am using a lager yeast — more of an APL I guess.

I did a little taste test of the Ranger today. Where the Lemondrop disappointed, early returns on this one — even though it’s not quite ready yet — is out freakin standing!
