Chickened out on trying Mark's method?

I pitched my 1LO2HK starters 6 hrs ago for today's Helles and Exportbeir. They are at 50F. I just gave them a swirl and they are just starting to off gas already. I think they will be at HK by pitch time.

Yeah not this time. Trying some other new things on this Helles, so feeling I have enough variables in play.

You are running your starter at 50f?

Yup. I pre can my starter wort. So I put those jars in the fermentation chest last night to get them to 50F. Then after I oxygenated and pitched the smack packs I put them back in the 50F chest.

I'll be brewing a black saison tomorrow night.  The plan is to age half of it on some cherry puree.  I've never used fruit in a beer before, but I was inspired by something I tried at the NHC.

If it turns out well, it might be a good candidate for souring (hoping to get some sours going next year).

That sounds like a great beer.

I MIGHT get to brewing this week sometime. I've got a Westvleteran 12 Clone kit I won in the Brewunited comp. I'm not sure I've ever actually brewed a kit. It's a beastly one for sure. gotta build a starter for this one for sure.

I've got a string of big beers in the lineup. I'm going to do a rye wine and age it on oak chips soaked in Manhattan (Rye Whisky, Sweet vermouth, bitters). Next up after that is my (almost) annual barley wine brew for laying down to celebrate my sons birth 5 years ago today!

Been thinking about a RIS myself actually. Haven't done one since I started brewing all grain.

How are you making it 'black'? In the mash, sparge, cold steeping? There is a local one here that is great and I have really wanted to brew one.
On Tap/Bottled: Golsch, Iliff IPA, Hopfenbier, Salted berry cider

I'm going to add one pound of Dehusked Carafa II during the batch sparge.

You son of a b****! You know that is illegal in home brewing.... ;D

Just finished kegging a baltic porter and man did it come out awesome.  Smooth roast and dark fruit with undertones of coffee and malt.  I have been slowly sipping a pint of it that was left behind in the fermenter and I wish it was carbonated.  Just wish it had dried out a tad more (finished at 1.028).  But thats how it goes sometimes when brewing a recipe for the first time.  Next year I will nail this one.

Tried to make time for my Arrogant Bastard-ish beer today, too much going on. Gonna get it next weekend, along with (hopefully) a kolsch with a re-tooled recipe.
