I am hoping to brew a walnut vanilla Porter then I’m hoping to brew a Dr. pepper Stout.

This weekend will be the third run of my Burton Ale.  I'm doing a double batch this time so when the first keg kicks, I'll have another ready to slide right in.  I find that I like this beer more and more as it ages.  Usually my favorite pours are the last few glasses when it's in the 4-5 month range.  And it's so sad when it runs out.

Right now the forecast for Saturday is sunny and mid 50s.  Should be a little on the cool side, but a beautiful day for brewing.

Mashing a Festbier right now. Using Ken’s grain bill with Hallertau at 30 and 5 minutes.  OYL-113 Mexican lager slurry shaken not stirred.

Pilsner with repitch of Diamond Lager, it’s step up from five to 10 gallons.  All went well.  Finished in just over 5 hours.

Another Porter here. 

I made this exact recipe 3 months ago, hitting the exact same OG of 1.062.  Last time I used Windsor and it finished at 1.025. This time I have WY1450 on the job.  I’m guessing 1.019.

Excellent.

I am brewing my Rye Porter next week that I will age on organic coffee beans.  It's a real crowd pleaser here!  I will then pitch the yeast slurry into another batch of porter that is crafted to taste like pumpernickel bread.

I've only used Slap Ya Mama on fish (every VRBO I've stayed at in the Keys seems to have some in the kitchen for some reason), but I bet it's killer on brisket. Looks great!

I'm overdue for smoking a brisket myself. It's about the only serious BBQ cut I haven't done since I got my smoker this summer.

It adds a nice subtle spice to the basic brisket rub. Make sure you get the low sodium Slap ya Mama or everything gets too salty. So freaking good as part of a dry rub for wings too!

Brewing an Old Rasputin inspired RIS. Using ingredients on hand, seems pretty close to a couple of recipes that look good.
I will be using the cake of 1450 from a rye porter I kegged today.

So last weekend I didn't get to brew my Burton.  On Friday I was making the invert sugar, and had a slight mishap.  Long story short, there was a gigantic mess and I lost all my invert.  So that brew has been delayed a couple weeks.

But this weekend I'm going back to a beer I haven't done for several years.  Heather Ale.  I just finished the starter a few minutes ago.

Hope part of the mishap wasn't getting some on you. I have gotten hot syrup, and even worse, caramel on me before. Not fun!
