Brewing that Belgian quad that I mentioned above in my December 6 post above. It's wonderful to be brewing beer outdoors in Montana on the Winter Solstice. We've had an incredibly nice fall after our October 25 blizzard.

Brew chickens are happily pecking on hot spent grains.

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

Thanks, she's such a sweetheart.  I think she's a full pit.  Below is perhaps a better representation of what she looks like.  Sadly, we lost our Matilda a few months ago to a brain tumor.  We'll never have another dog like her; she was one in a million.

Last weekend I brewed on Friday evening and as I was pitching the harvested 1056, I decided to add just half of the volume (plenty) so I might get a little wild and brew the next day and pitch the rest then.  So on Friday I brewed a very pale-colored amber beer .. pilsner malt, wheat and about 8 ounces of C60.  SRM of around 6 give or take.  Nugget hops and late Crystal hops.  On Saturday I made a Blonde Ale with Pilsner malt, Vienna and then Mandarina Bavaria both early and late.  So no brewing again until sometime the weekend of 1/5.  Cheers Beerheads.

Ps.  Cute pups in these pics.

A day without beer is like... just kidding, I have no idea.

My wife brewed an American Amber Ale yesterday and I was her assistant. It is a style that you just don’t see around much anymore. When I looked at my notes, I haven’t brewed one in over 15 years.

Tuesday or so I'm brewing an homage to Harvey's Sussax bitter.  Had some wonderful Pints of it in London last month.

Warminster Marris Otter, Simpsons Dark Crystal, a little flaked corn, Brambling Cross and EKG hops. Don't have anything like Harvey's yeast, so using WLP Buton Ale.

Brewed a Helles yesterday with the Crisp Hana pils malt.  Anxious to see how it tastes compared to my typical pils malt.  Cheers and Happy New Year/brew year to all!

Where are you sourcing the Bramling Cross hops?  I’ve often looked for them in all the usual places but they never seem to be “in stock”.  Would love to try them someday.

For those that have used them, and assuming I can’t source them, what hops would you consider a substitute?  (knowing full well that there is never an exact match).

Willamette
EKG
Pilgrim (which I love)

my homebrew club has access to them, but i just missed the recent buy deadline, so perhaps some kind of homebrew group buy?

Bought a lb from MI Hop Alliance. Now shows sold out. They have 2 of the 11 lb bags left, sometimes they break those down into pounds, but with only 2 left I don't know if they will.

I looked at Hop Craft Supply in MI, none there now.

Tough hop to find for sure. I'd try bullion or brewer's gold mixed with a small amount of pilgrim. That will get you the black currant/lemon/spice of brambling cross.

I just brewed a slightly modified version of the 25th Anniversary Ale from the Maltose Falcons: https://www.maltosefalcons.com/blogs/recipes/25th-anniversary-ipa -- my aim is to have something that is a throwback to the beers I remember loving over two decades ago. I can get lots of great modern IPAs, but the classics are so hard to find anywhere...thank goodness for homebrew!
