Brewed my Belgian Dark Strong Ale 5 days ago.  When this one comes out of the fermenter, I will brew my Peppermint Patty Sweet Stout (probably next week).

Last week I brewed a Polotmavý Ležák (Czech amber lager). Let it cool overnight, and racked and pitch yeast this morning.

OG 1.048, 10 gallons.

18 lbs. Gallatin valley pilsner malt
1 lb. Weyermann melanoidin malt
1 lb. Dingemann caravienne

Mashed in at 145° for 30 min, added boiling to raise the mash temp to 156 for another 1.5 hours (unexpected client call).

4 oz. Saaz FWH
2 oz. Clusters boil
2 oz. Saaz 15 min
2 oz. Saaz knockout

Stupid Northern Brewer was supposed to ship me 3 packets of Diamond lager yeast, they only sent 1. Fortunately, I had a packet of 34/70. Split each fermenter half and half with each. Fermenting nicely at 48°F.

Yesterday I took advantage of 61° F weather in Montana, and brewed a tripel:

OG 1.070, 10 gallons

20 lbs. Gallatin Valley pilsner malt
2 lbs. Weyermann Bohemian pilsner malt (using up leftovers)
1 lb. Weyermann melanoidin malt
1 lb. Dingemann biscuit malt

Mash at 153°F for 90 min. Batch sparge to collect 14 gallons.

3 oz. Willamette boil
4 lb. cane sugar 20 min
4 oz. Strisselspalt 20 min

Boiled for four hours to reduce to 10 gallons.

Split between WY387 Trappist and a new yeast for me Bootleg Biology OB Belgian, which is supposed to be for Oud Bruin. I plan to use both yeast cakes for 5 gallons of Belgian quad.

That makes 20 gallons of beer brewed in the past two weeks, and the quad will make 25. Trying to get my keezer well stocked as I am scheduled for knee replacement surgery January 8. The first 20 gallons will be kegged, if the quad isn't quite ready I will rack it into a 5-gallon glass carboy for a long secondary fermentation.

Interesting to see melaniodin and biscuit. If it was anyone else, I'd think they were crazy. But since I know you're crazy....😁

Going to try and get my Memory Lapse Pale Ale into a keg and then use the 1056 on a Blonde Ale this weekend.  Pilsner, some Munich 2, Perle to bitter and Crystal to finish.  5.5%, 25 IBUs, SRM 6.  Cheers Beerheads.

I have a pilsner going in a 5 gallon batch that I hope to harvest yeast from (Diamond Lager first use - which usually takes a little longer to complete than subsequent re-pitches) - I may be going with a 10 gallon batch of BoPils as the last brew of the year Saturday - unless I squeeze one in after Christmas and before New Years Day...until then, I have just too many events piled up (at which I will serve homebrew, of course!)

On friday I brewed a quasi-bock...  maybe a sesqui-bock, not sure if it's quite doppel.  (OG=1.071)

33% BestMalz Heidelberg
33% GW Pure-Idaho Pils
27% Weyermann Barke Vienna
  6% Weyermann Barke Munich
  1% Weyermann Abbey [aromatic]

35 IBU (Saphir + EKG): 25ibus at FWH(55min boil), remaining 10ibus at 15 minutes
bigger half batch with Diamond Lager yeast, smaller half batch with Baja Lager yeast; both FVs at 57F.
Curious to see how the Baja compares to Diamond.

ETA:  Hey narcout, congrats on the new doggo!  What a cutie!

S-189 would have been perfect for that beer. Check it out if you make it again.

Thanks!  I agree, but I was all out of S-189 this time.  >:(  I already have it in my cart for my next order.  It might be my favorite lager yeast.

Saison (with new dog)


Beautiful pup!  My friend has a "tripod" pitty mix- I assume yours is too!  Such loving dogs.
