Monday I brewed what I am calling an "Imperial American Pilsner", for the lack of a better name.

10 gallons, 1.064 OG

16 lbs. Rahr 6-row
6 lbs. Kolsch malt
6 oz. acid malt

Mash in 8 gallons of 175° water to arrive at 147° for 50 minutes, then added 3 gallons of boiling water to raise mash to 154° for 30 minutes more.

5 oz. Tettnanger pellets FWH
3 lbs. rice syrup solids (added at the beginning of the boil)
3 oz. Hallertauer Mittelfruh 90 minutes
1.7 oz Hallertauer Mittelfruh 2 minutes

Let cool overnight to 54°F. Split between two fermenters with 34/70 yeast cakes from the Continental pilsner I brewed on February 3. That beer, with an original gravity of 1.052, finished at 1.008 for an apparent attenuation of 84%. Pretty good considering that I just sprinkled 3 packages into two fermentors without rehydrating.

First time using rice syrup solids. I bought them half price when the hardware store decided to quit selling homebrew supplies, so I got them for $3 a pound. I see they are now going to $9 a pound, which means I will really have to love this beer if I ever use them again.  :)

I’m bummed because until I enlist a helper or figure out some new tricks, I won’t be able to brew on my system for several weeks.  I fractured my right wrist three weeks ago and had some screws and a plate installed last week.  Brewing plans are on hold, dang it.  I had plans for a Pilsner, either a German or a CAP, but not now.

Haven't brewed in ages, but threw down a St. Patty's stout today.  Went lazy and bought a kit.  Still had to remill the grains, but the brew day was easy peasy.  Better efficiency than predicted, which makes me feel good.

Finally warmish out, so I chopped through the ice in the backyard during the mash.

Fire pit, stogie, and a glass of homebrew made everything feel like normal times.

2lbs. of invert sugar. It’s not very dark. I cooked it to 260F. Definitely honey like consistency (or thicker).

Getting ready for Whitbread IPA.
