Just finished brewing a nut brown ale--my first attempt. Using WLP 013 Dry London Ale for first time, too. This is the first of several fall beers I'll be brewing through August--the others are porters using the same yeast.

One of my bitters wasn't ready to rack (%&@# West Yorkshire yeast is a true top cropper, takes forever to drop), but my lagers were.  So I brewed Classic American Pilsner yesterday.

10 gallons, OG 1.055

16 lbs. six-row malt
6 lbs. flaked maize

Mashed in with 1 tsp CaCl at 152°F for 60 min, add hot water infusion to raise to 162°F for 15 min.
Boil for 90 min.  This time I did not add any lactic acid or acid malt to the mash, as I usually do with pilsners, as I am trying to get more of that grainy six row character, and my last few have been a little too smooth.  We'll see how this turns out.

2.2 oz. Saaz FWH
2 oz. Cluster 45 min
1.8 oz. Strisselspalt 5 min

Split between yeast cakes of WY2038 Munich and WY2206 Bavarian. The clarity between the helles I racked into kegs was noticeable.  The 2308, which used an extremely fresh smack pack, was clear and bright, while the 2206 was slightly hazy.   Nothing that 6 weeks of lagering can't fix.

I am just finishing brewing a German Pilsner this afternoon.  My last brew session at home was Memorial Day and I am flat out of homebrew.  (I did make a couple meads since then, but I don't think that counts).  This session went pretty well.  I used a few tips from the low oxygen thread - extremely clear wort running into the carboys right now.

I'm also making a pilsner.  The lager pipeline is empty, which is a shame.  Here is what I'm making

6lb pils
4lb Pale Malt (German)
0.5lb Carahell

1oz Ultra Hops @ FW
0.5oz @ 5 min

Using Wyeast 2278 Czech Pils, since that what the brew shop had that was fresh. 
Risk of failure should be no deterrent to trying.

   A Castle Pilsen/Chinook SmaSH IPA yesterday and a ESB today. Probably gonna be the last brews for a while, I think I'm finally gonna have to bite the bullet and cut up my basement floor and replace the drain before my beer cellar becomes submerged. I'm really not enthused about tying into this project, I've only been putting it off for about 20 years - can't say I'm not a world class procrastinator.
I spent most of my money on beer, tools and guns, the rest I foolishly squandered on stupid stuff!

Both these look amazing.

Not even 10am and I'm thirsty already.

Das-a-Fest, my '17 marzen went into the fermenter a few hours ago.  Perfect brew day.
