Well, the 15 minute brew day was a nice change.  I hope it turns out well.  I checked out some fancy, organic,  cold press, unfiltered apple juice at Whole Foods that I want to try next (even though it's 8 bucks a gallon).

Also, Trader Joe's puts out a spiced cider every fall that I want to ferment.

I attempted to make a gal of cider for my better half this week to...  I just used wlp028 with whitehouse organic fresh pressed apple juice.  I have no idea what to expect from this juice/yeast combo.  Hope it's drinkable...

Kegged two beers today. Gonna make cider next weekend from early (tart) orchard blend. Need to decide on yeast strain - used 4766 last few times (like it), but may use 1056 this time.

With a little luck, I'll be brewing the German Pilsner I've been trying to brew for the last month.

Mashing in a Kentucky Common tomorrow morning.  Never had one, but I've got a sister in Louisville asking about it, and I'm curious.  No lacto.  This is pretty much Gordon Strong's recipe, though I'm using the Kölsch yeast instead of 1056.

Kentucky Common

OG 1.048

35% Flaked Corn
3% Paul's Black Patent
2% Fawcett Dark Crystal I

22 IBU Vanguard @FWH
Bit of Crystal @0 min

Wyeast 2565

Update on this one:

Just kicked the keg, one of the quicker brews I've gone through.  This is an extremely refreshing beer - if you like the Cream Ales, Pre-Pros, CAPs, even Kölsch then I highly recommend giving this one a shot.  It's basically a dark version of those, and the color is really nice for this time of year.  Mine landed at the darker end for the style, which is fine, but I might dial it back to 2% black (or Carafa) next time around.

Incidentally as I wound this keg down I was finishing off a good bottle of bourbon.  The two go together like a match made in, well, Kentucky.  I can't help but think that's part of the history:  A bourbon with a beer back in Butchertown!

Today it's a big, Denny-inspired Rye IPA.  Lots of Columbus and Mt. Hood.  The plan for this one is to age on bourbon soaked, then possibly rye soaked oak cubes. 

Wyeast 1450, of course.

Kegging one cider made with 71B and starting another with D47 today. Got some time off this week, so I need to start planning out those brewdays, too.

My first kit from them and my first all grain. I need a couple things to make this process better next time.

Kegged up a California Common and saved some yeast for a next weekend Baltic Porter brew day.
