I am drilling down on a pilsner using Montana Craft's pils malt; otherwise pretty Germanic.  Depending on the yeast cake health of a beer just racked, I will use Diamond Lager - if it doesn't look and smell and taste right, I will sub in S-189 as the yeast.  I have gone 5 or 6 re-pitches with the Diamond and don't want to over use it (after first pitching, each batch has been dosed with Wyeast nutrient).  Hoping for a tasty pils!

Spent this weekend smoking a pork butt.  I like the bone in to keep the meet more tinder.
Next week it is a new porter recipe - since I am out of dark beer.

Need to get my competition beers ready for November.  Brewing my Wee Heavy (5.5 gals) on Sunday.  When that is done, Black IPA (5.5 gals) and my Amarillo IPA (11 gals.) when I get the American Brown Ale out of the half barrel fermenter sometime next week.

A lot going on recently, harvest season is like that.
I am brewing a saison tomorrow that later will get wild grape must that is currently being pre fermented using the carbonic maceration method that Keith linked to recently.
We have been picking and pressing apples and so far have 5 gallons of basic cider fermenting plus two gallons that I am letting a wild fermentation happen too. I also juiced our pears and have 5 gallons of perry going with some honey added. Both 5 gallon batches of cider and perry are with very fresh wy1450 slurry I harvested from a low gravity ipa I kegged the night before.
We have lots more apples to press and pick and I am hoping for 20 more gallons of cider to play with. Hopefully we can make 10 gallons of cyser and a big master batch of cider that we can flavor in different ways.
If we have time to pick more grapes we will try the carbonic maceration treatment on a pyment.
I am about to keg a bitter this morning, a Timothy Taylor’s Landlord inspired 1.048 og with 99% Simpson’s GP and 1% black malt for color and way 1469.
I hope to get a low gravity Porter started in a few days.
We have a lot of honey to play with too so I envision a few meads soon.
Don't let the bastards cheer you up.

This weekend I am making a helles without pilsner malt.  :O  Great Western 2-row, Munich 1, Edelweiss and Omega 113 (yes, it's Mexican!).  If you're a style Nazi or get squeamish easily, look away.  :D

I think it might surprise you. Lots of American breweries use two row pale in lagers. Of course, their not German breweries.

PS. Have you decided whether OYL-113 is the same strain as WLP940?

I've been really surprised to see how many LA area breweries are making their pilsners/lagers with Weyermann products.

Surprisingly the jury is out.  I say that having made a good 8-9 batches with this yeast.  It's excellent, attenuates well and flocs nicely too.  The character is very good but is it 940?   I was just thinking that I should pick up some 940 as my next lager yeast and try it again.  I used to think I could pick it out in a beer made with it but now I'm not sure.  Still, 113 is an excellent yeast and has made some very nice beers here.
