I had planned to retire this S-04 that I'm working with but decided on one more batch:  A good, old-fashioned cream ale.  Pilsner malt, some Vienna, flaked corn and a touch of Copper Malt, Sterling hops that I just got from YVH and S-04.  The S-04 beers have been nice a clear so far so I'm hoping for something that looks a bit like this...



I will probably brew it Saturday.  Cheers Beerheads.

That cream ale looks pretty good - I was thinking about brewing a Pilsner, but maybe a nice cream ale would be a welcome diversion!  I have some flaked maize, so I should be all set.  Thanks for the inspiration.  I can only hope mine turns out half as stellar as that pic you posted.

It's not a style that I make very often, mainly because the vast majority of my batches are lagers.  I also made a Blonde Ale with Liberty during this run with S-04 so even when I'm making ales, some of them seem sort of lager-like.  :D

Yeah, I love that picture.  In my next life I want to be a beer photographer.   ;D  Cheers.

I am doing an impromptu brew on a rainy Saturday with ingredients on hand. It’s a small APA. 5 gal batch with 5# Rahr 2 row, 2# Valley Malt Amber Rye. It should come out to about 3.5% abv. I just mashed in and am about to decide on hops from the freezer. It will definitely involve cascade and will shoot for 35-40 abv.
This should be a nice thirst quenching session beer for the spring after long days in the garden or after a hike or bike ride.
Don't let the bastards cheer you up.

nice, i rarely day drink but i really do want to make a ~2.5% ABV dry stout soon, and might even add a bunch of coffee to it. i try to never day drink, but i often feel like it would be really nice to have a dry stout or maybe some pale yellow beer that is purely for flavour with almost no intoxication in the sunlight.

1957 Ordinary IPA today.  It’s 1957 Whitbread IPA with Cascade and Willamette and Fuller’s yeast. With those changes I figured I better change the name.

Just pitched the yeast on an orange wheat ale -- 60% wheat malt, 35% 2-row, 5% carapils, bittered to ~22 IBU with Sterling, K-97 for yeast. I have the zest from three oranges steeping in vodka to make a tincture, which will be added at kegging.

Yum! I love using orange zest but I just throw it into the fermenter once activity slows. Sounds like a great warm weather beer!

Just got home from FL so haven't brewed in a couple months.  On the ledger for this week is my Saison.  After that Amarillo IPA and American Brown Ale.

Just finished brewing a "classic" West Coast IPA -- 2-row, Golden Promise, crystal 40, and biscuit malt, with Yakima Valley Hops Hop Extract for bittering, and a whirlpool of Amarillo, Cascade, and Centennial. I'll use the same three hops for the dry hop...BRY-97 for the yeast. I hit 1.058 starting gravity.
