Tomorrow
AG Batch #41, 4.25 gal

6 lbs 2-row (Ephiphany Foundation)
1 lb Vienna (Best Maltz)
1 lb White Wheat (Canadian)

FWH = 1 oz, 2020 Mt Hood-Dried Whole Leaf-4.7AA (Hops Direct)

90 min Mash
30 min Aggressive Boil

BRY-97

First taste 1-10, gets an 8.
Bitterness is a tad too much.
Mt Hood is working out very well.
Starting to realize that I don't prefer bitter bombs.
30 min boil is working out well, as long it's only timed when aggressive.
FWH is also working out well.
Switching to weighing hops by grams not ounces, more accurate

I have my St Clair Weinacht Bier planned.  Looking for something like an orange molasses ginger cookie.

62% Munich I
19% Vienna
6% CaraMunich I
3% Honey malt
3% Melanoidin
6% Thai Ginger Molasses Candi Sugar

1 oz Amarillo at 15, 10, and 5 min

33 grams Diamond Lager Yeast

That looks really interesting
It’s only been lagering a week now but early indications are pretty good. 

Not a huge ginger presence but it is there. No molasses that I can detect.

The orange comes thru nicely. Not strong — it’s just about right.

The maltiness from the grain bill is exactly what I was looking for despite the clean lager yeast.

It’s definitely Bock strength ...but I did miss OG due to a loose nut between the MLT and mash paddle so it didn’t hit full 2x Bock range.  My 1 pint tester is having a pleasant warming feeling.

Brewed a Bitter today and overshot my gravity a bit, so it could be considered an ESB on the low end.

The brewery is setup and ready to go for a good old malty Brown Ale but it might have to wait until Mon.

I plan to incorporate a few new processes this brew: I used BeerSmith v3.1 water module for minerals, I’ll use a 60 min mash raking the top 1/3 without disturbing the bottom 2/3 of the mash bed every 15 min, use manual mash temp reading vs PID PV reading for mash temp, and reintroduce a mash out temp increase.

We’ll see what happens.

I noticed BeerSmith must have licensed the Bru’n Water ph models. Did you use the new Bru’n Water option or stick with the other choice for ph?

I used the BW profile ...but the water called for Sodium Bicarbonate which put me in 5.5x range so I didn’t add acid to the recipe.

Feeling tired I went to sleep early, woke up at 3:00 am.
Oh no, what do I do with myself, I know, make beer !
Off to the races.

AG Batch #44, 4.5 gal

8 lbs Pilsner

FWH = 21 grams, 2020 Mt Hood-Dried Whole Leaf (4.7AA)

90 min Mash
30 min Aggressive Boil

S-04 Pitched into 57f wort, basement ambient 59f.
Time will tell what temp it raises to.

Last chance for pilsner malt.  If recalled correctly didn't care for it.

AG Batch #42, 4.5 gal

6 lbs Vienna Malt
1 lb Flaked Corn
1 lb Ursprung Fest Malt

FWH = 1 oz, 2020 Mt Hood, Dried Whole Leaf, 4.7AA

90 min Mash
30 min Aggressive Boil

US-05 @ 64 F

First taste.
This was my attempt on a Yuengling Light clone for the wife.
1-10, she gave it a 9, I rated it an 8.  IBU needs to be lowered a bit.
Side by side comparison to a Yuengling light, it's very close.

I'm really into this recipe. I'm more traditional on the boil duration part but potato, tomato looks delicious
