Didn't plan on brewing today but I needed to get my holiday beer moving so it will be carbed around Christmas so today became a work/brew day. Today's beer is a partigyle brown ale. Big beer is kind of an imperial brown that will get some rye whisky-soaked oak down the road. The small beer is loosely an American brown ale that will get a tincture of vanilla and cocoa nibs and go into a cask. Well, "cask".
This was my first time attempting to make torrified wheat with a popcorn popper. I felt like the beers needed a toasted element and I have a lot of unmalted wheat on hand. Really simple process and turned out nice. Very toasty and milled much easier. The only downside is having to work a few ounces at a time. I only needed a pound but it would be unreasonable for a larger volume.
