I'm tired of being 4 months behind. Lets start over.

First off, mind blow. I met a dude today who brews good beer and didn't know what this forum was, or AHA was, or that there was an NHC. How can that be possible?

This weekend I'm brewing a Vienna, an APA, and a Nothern Anglo-Land Brown. Intentionally, none of these will meet the mandates of the poobah guide, nor will I pay to be told how they don't meet. Nor will I post recipes to be told what I want or don't want.

Its official my friends, for most of us style don't mean rip for the next 9 months.


Ooh, that reminds me... Hey, how much nestles quick is appropriate for a light lager?

That is just amazing!? Guy must live off the grid or something.

Plan on brewing a double batch of a rye farmhouse style ale. Got two vials of yeast from The Yeast Bay I want to use. The Wallonian Farmhouse and the Funktown Pale. Also just brewed 15 gallons of a belgian dark strong yesterday for a whiskey barrel. That was the first 15 gallon batch I ever did by myself. Thank (enter deity of your choice) for pumps!

Not much brewing here. I'm going to bottle a couple of beers off my Red X test batch before I add some dry hops. Other than that, just a little spring cleaning and organizing in store for the weekend.

Maybe I'll think about brewing a low gravity space beer... How much Tang should I use at flameout? Or should I add to taste in the secondary?

Honestly, a tang flavored berliner sounds good to me.

Man, this thread is taking me back to my college days. Tang powder, ice, tequila, and a splash of sour mix. Blend. Orange margarita time :)

But yeah, tang takes me back. Many moons ago, my brother had my mom buy some at the grocery store as a goof after watching some Married with Children episodes. We got hooked on it after that. Tang mead seems like a waste of honey, but it's sounding really tempting right now.

Saison... dry zesting with lemons & white pepper

I've been thinking the same thing for one of our wedding beers, but with black pepper. I have some small test batches planned over the next few months. Have you considered meyer lemons?

Heh, funny - this is a test batch for our wedding too. I have considered Meyer lemons, but they are hard to find at the grocery stores here. I could go to whole foods or something, but that's another trip I gotta make. So I'll probably stick with the regular lemons.

That tang thing has really got me thinking...seriously.  Crazy how jacking around can lead to creative bursts.  And I gotta get a saison in at some point in the next couple weeks!

Shut the front door! A joke lead to an idea, then into something tangible. Looking forward to seeing the recipe... Even more looking forward to hearing how it tastes!

One too big too too bitter Amber Lager down. Mashing a pale ale now that will be slightly under buttered with cent and cascade, fermented with Scottish. Dryhoping with Willamette

Just sitting here getting my recipes and B'run water numbers in order for tomorrows brew day.  Brewing a Scottish 70 and then brewing a "half" Heady Topper clone.  Brewed a Heady clone off of HBT last weekend, and split off a second starter from my Vermont Ale yeast.  Basically, taking the same recipe and cutting it down to a 1.050 version of a similar clone.

Probably clean some kegs as well while brewing and some other odds and ends.  Plan some brews for over easter weekend as well.  British Dark Mild for sure..... have to see what else from there.

Mmmm dark mild. Gotta try that some day. IMHO Irish, Scottish and English are way underrated
