Thursday I'm  doing an Altbier. Pretty much the Zum Uerige clone. I will be told it is too bitter if I ever enter it.

Kinda reminds me of when we were designing the alt we brewed at Sierra Nevada for Beer Camp.  I kept pushing to get the IBUs up to at least 40+.  Scott Jennings wanted to keep them more like 25-30.  He won, of course.  When I got a hold of a keg to serve at an event here, everybody said "good, but kinda sweet".

I'm brewing a Belgian citrus Wit with fresh coconut and orange peel and an uncharacteristic hop today on the sun porch due to inclimate weather for outdoor brewing.

Today I brewed 10 gallons of a Guinness Draught clone.  My target OG was 1.039 and hit my volume at 1.040.  I'll take it.  And looking towards daylight through my hydrometer bulb/flask it indeed is dark ruby, NOT black.   I used a bit of sauer malt in the mash to try to get some tangy-ness.  Back-up would be a couple ml or so per keg, of 88% lactic acid (to taste) at kegging. ;D

Texas Red v.2

80% Root Shoots Genie Pale
10% Munich I
8% C60
2% C120
29 IBU Chinook FWH
21 IBU Equinox @ 15
BRY-97 yeast
1055 OG

I liked it so much last time I am brewing another. I decreased the C120 1% (moved to C60 line) and changed from Kolsch to Bry-97 yeast. I liked the Kolsch yeast but I tossed the slurry when I kegged the last batch.

I brewed a Pale Ale yesterday with a hop combo that I've been liking a lot lately -Amarillo, Mosaic, and Chinook.

There’s a small four way stop ~5 miles from here the locals call Maysville. I took a photo of a cotton field with an old red barn I used for the label so I wanted to include the community name.

The ‘Classic’ part of the name is a nod to JZ’s base recipe in BCS.

I remember when you posted that picture but I don't remember the original context.  Thanks for the story.  It was a beautiful picture anyway.

   Bock and a Half, it's almost cool now to go to the FV, once the FV is packed down to the basement it'll be BEER TIME!
I spent most of my money on beer, tools and guns, the rest I foolishly squandered on stupid stuff!

... I am looking forward to the festival.

Unfortunately, I had to give Russ a cxl notice for this year. Just too many moving parts.  Maybe next year.

Tomorrow, I’m brewing Big Deck Brown Ale. Base + 4% each C40 and Choc, + 2% each C60 and Victory. Horizon for bittering and Amarillo for aroma and flavor. S-04.

Sorry you couldn’t make. It was packed. Great venue. They had over 300 attend and raised over $4000.

...and I floated one keg and nearly floated another.
