Tomorrow Morning (couldn't wait, bitter orange peel on order)

AG Batch #45, 4.5 gal

4 lbs Pilsner
4 lbs Vienna

FWH = 22 grams, 2020 Mt Hood-Dried Whole Leaf (4.7AA)

60 min Mash
30 min Aggressive Boil

Last 7 minutes tossed into hop spider
22 grams, dried Sweet Orange Peel
11 grams, Ginger Root was peeled, cut into match sticks, then weighed
1/4 + 1/8 teaspoon, Saigon Cinnamon

S-04 @ 60f

First taste, very good 1-10 gets an 8.
I need to walk before running, holding off on ginger and cinnamon.
Future brews will focus solely on method, amount, and time with orange peel.
Intent is to use orange peel instead of late addition hops.
Cinnamon sticks is the way to go, ground cinnamon doesn't dissolve and ends up somewhere.

Yesterday I brewed 11 gallons of Bohemian Pils - single infusion (at 154f).  Malts were mostly Best Pils, plus 7% vienna and 4.5% carafoam (probably should have bought chit malt instead).  Although I had Czech Saaz on hand, I decided to change it up a little and use some other hops on hand. And so used Perle (60 minutes), H. Mittelfruh (30 minutes) and Tettnang (15 minutes) for a total of 40 IBUs.  Efficiency was through the roof (86%) but luckily the target OG at 1.049 (with anticipated 78% efficiency) left the actual OG of 1.057 as still reasonable.  Imperial Urkel yeast - 2 fresh packets per bucket.  Aerated well with o2, pitched at 48F, and ramping up to 50F over 24-36 hours.  A good brew day.

My first brew day in a year.  My keezer had died last February or March, and I only recently was able to source another chest freezer that I wanted.

Today I brewed a Continental Style Pilsner.

10 gallons, OG 1.052

18 lbs. Castle pilsner malt
2 lbs. Briess Crystal 10°
6 oz. Weyermann Acid malt

Double decoction mash. Mashed in at 135°. After 15 minutes, pulled the first decoction, heated it to 155, and rested for 15 minutes before boiling for 20 minutes, and adding back to the main mash, which raised the main mash temperature to 142°.

After another 45 minutes of that (lunchtime), boiled another decoction for 10 minutes, then added it back to the main mash to raise it to 153. Last rest for 45 minutes before sparging.

First wort hopping with 0.8 oz. Clusters, 1.8 oz. Saaz, and 3.8 oz, Tettnanger pellets.

2 oz.Tettnanger pellet at mid boil
3 oz. Hallertau Mittelfrueh at knockout

34/70 yeast

I didn't get to posting last Sunday when I made a split-batch IPA.  I used up a mish-mash of ingredients on hand (except used fresh yeast) and split one wort to make 5 gallons each of a "Blind Pig"-ish clone (a Russian River beer), and the following recipe I created and made for the first time.  Will have to see if I like it.  Fermenting with Joystick/Pacman around 61F.  Both beers came out with OG 1.060.

Grains listed below are 1/2 of what I used.

The 30 minute hop additions below were actually added at 5 minutes, and the 20 minute additions were added at flame out,  followed by a 35-minute whirlpool that started around 182F.  The wort hydro sample tasted hoppy enough.  I'm going to keg hop the dry hops on both IPAs.

Just finished up with a Munich Dunkel--- Weyermann Barke Munich, a little bit of melaniodin, and a scant portion of carafa 1 for color.

Finally giving Lutra a try tomorrow. 100% Pils malt, Sterling early, Motueka late. I'm going to try it at 15 PSI at room temperature. I'm interested to see just how clean it really is, and I plan on brewing the same recipe with lager yeasts this spring both pressurized at 60F and at a more traditional low temp for comparison.

About 30 minutes in to the boil for my orange wheat ale. Walking up the hill later today to grab some oranges off the tree near where I live, which will get zested with vodka to make an orange tincture. That will get dumped in the fermenter in a few days.

The recipe is patterned after Orange Wheat Ale from Hangar 24 Brewing in Redlands, California -- an excellent beer if you can get your hands on it!

2021 Orange Summer Wheat Ale
6 lb. white wheat malt
3 lb. 2-row
0.5 lb. crystal 10
0.5 lb. rice hulls
1.5 oz. Mt Hood (4.6% alpha), 60 minute boil
1 pkg. American Hefeweizen Ale yeast (WLP320)
zest of 3 oranges, soaked in 3 oz. vodka for a few days and added to primary ~4 or 5 days in
Mash at 152 for 60 minutes, boil for 60 minutes, ferment at 66 degrees, target o.g. 1.044, f.g. 1.011, 26 IBU, 4 SRM, 4.3% abv.

Tomorrow Morning

AG Batch #46, 4.5 gal = Volume in Fermenter

4 lbs Ursprung Fest
4 lbs Vienna

FWH, 22 grams, 2020 Mt Hood-Dried Whole Leaf (4.7AA)

60 min Mash
30 min Aggressive Boil

Last 15 minutes tossed in hop spider
  21 grams, Dried Bitter Orange Peel
  11 grams, Ginger Root, peeled, cut into pieces
  3/8 teaspoons, Saigon Cinnamon (tossed in boil)

Nottingham @ 58f, 3 weeks

First taste, 1-10 it gets an 8.5.
Ginger & cinnamon needs to be tweaked back a little.
Bites on the tongue too much.
May try ceylon cinnamon.
I believe it may be the best malt combo to date.
