What's Brewing this week?
« on: June 10, 2014, 08:18:03 PM »
I've got a partigyle on my dance card. First runnings will be a strong belgian wheat wine/super saison with coconut sugar. Gonna land somewhere around 1.116. I've got a nice big cake of belgian yeast blend ready to go for that one. sort of a farm mansion beer.

Second runnings will be a non-traditional wit by capping the mash with a few kilos of flaked kamut, a couple more kilos of pale malt, and a lb of crystal 15. that one gets some corriander, black pepper, citrus zest and possible a touch of chamomile.

Nothing is planned yet but you do get me thinking I need to get back at it.  I just my last finished keg in the serving fridge.  8^(

I have two in the primary but I really need to get some summer and fall beers rolling or Oktoberfest will be store bought this year.

Bopils if the starter is ready to go this week. Otherwise I'll have something to brew for next week.

Putting together a Blonde Ale. Haven't decided if it will be something more than that. I saw a recipe for a Citrus Blonde that sounded good. Still working out the details. But brew I will.  :)

Nothing. Need to spend some quality time elbow deep in delabeling and cleaning a stack of bottles. Also, cleaning and rebuilding kegs and kegging two beers. Next weekend is looking ok.


Edit - Future in-laws will be in town. So no brewing. Entertaining them is good as well. Taking them to see Cowboys Stadium and Rangers Park.

This weekend has a my brother's backyard brew off competition  ;D

It's less of a competition than it is sibling rivarly over who has the better beer. I'll end up buy grain etc for another beer that is yet to be planned out so I can brew later in the week.
Homebrewing isn't my obsession, it's my life calling, there's a difference.

All my fermenters are full.  Munich Dunkel, Belgian blond, Kolsch, oud bruin, and two lambics.

I'm thinking something like: All Pils, All Mandarina Bavaria hops, and Bell's Oberon Yeast. Should have a nice orangeyness to it that should be pleasant in July.

Hopbursted session ipa.  Last one turned out so good!  Although the OG was a little lower than I wanted it to be this time  :-\

Got me enough pilsner malt and carapils to make a 5.5% abv brew using some belgian yeast.  Just want a nice summer beer.
