Yeah, I gave up on the double batch.  It is all measured out and everything, but I didn't crush the grain so I just stuck it in a bag and I'll do it next weekend (or maybe I'll have to miss a day of work for unknown reasons).
Risk of failure should be no deterrent to trying.

Doing my wife's apricot beer tomorrow. I decided to keep it somewhat interesting and use a Dingemann Pils base, along with WY3522. 


Gotta love hitting all numbers in a 4.5 hour brewday including cleanup. No long mash, no hopstand. Easy peasy.

;D   Well the APA I do next will take a good bit longer with the hopstand. And the lagers I've been doing lately got mashed longer. So a quick one is nice.

I'm on a brewing break as I had to send my mill in to Barley Crusher for warranty repair. That was last Tuesday, so hoping it doesn't take much longer than a month. But it's okay, I can use a break anyway; have been drinking too much, hoping a break from brewing will help me slow my intake down a bit.

Trying to squeeze in an APA today after a 1/2 day of work, sawing some brick to make space for a new patio door, and picking up the boy from day care. To save time, I am going with a 45 minute mash and 45 minute boil.

60% pilsner
20% munich light
20% german wheat

~38 IBU Bravo 45 min
2 oz equinox 2 min
1 oz simcoe 2 min
2 oz equinox DH
1 oz simcoe DH

1.055
US05 or K97
~50 IBU

Couldn't make it happen but got the patio door framed and installed. Maybe Sunday since my donkeys don't play until Monday...

Gonna do an attempt at a lodo APA this weekend with the Cleopatra hops I bought a few months back. Will preboil, use a 50 ppm meta dose, utilizing Brewtan as well to hopefully help to negate my copper IC's potential oxidation. Looking forward to the results.

Over and done. Did it no sparge and my strike differential should've been higher, so I mashed a few degrees below target. Disappointing there. As for the stab at lodo brewing :

What I could do - Preboil water, SMB 50ppm (did APA), Brewtan (mash and boil), no sparge, fabricated thick foil mash cap, reduced evaporation rate.

Couldn't do - underlet mash.

Disclosure - being a hopstand fan for American styles, I did one here but on a shorter time frame than normal (20 mins), so that likely negated some of the benefit, we'll see. Also, I chose to vorlauf. But overall, I will say that the lodo comments about the wort having less aroma during mash and boil are absolutely true. And the wort, coming from mostly domestic malts not one where pils malt flavor might jump  out as much better, seemed to have very nice flavor.

So we'll see. I'm curious to see what the final product brings, one way or the other. I plan to give the process a shot on a lager soon so I can judge the impact on German malts.
