What's Brewing This Weekend - 5/21 Edition
« on: May 19, 2010, 03:35:44 PM »
Ok, what's up folks?

I'm being forced to take a day off this Friday. (guess I have too many vacation hours stored up. sheesh)

So, if I'm taking a day off, guess I better figure out what's going in the kettles.

I have a day off on Monday, so I'm making a Belgian Pale Ale with either the Leuven Pale Ale yeast or the Canadian/Belgian yeast.

Well for the first time, my chest freezer is full.  So I may rack the Hard Lemonade to secondary.  But the IPA and Amber are only 4 and 5 days old right now.  So, no brewing for me. 

(but, I love watching the bubblers)

Cream Ale on Sunday.  My wife flies out for a conference on Saturday.  Unfortunately, it became a tradition for me to brew while she's out of town, even with two boys now (2 and 5 months).  Half of this 10g batch goes to a photographer who did a shoot for our family portraits and gave us everything for free.  It's the least I can do.

Hopefully I can do an instructional brew this weekend - belgian porter from my LHBS robust porter kit with about a pound of pureed raisins and trappist ale yeast

and... Ugh... bottling the house/competition IPA sometime this weekend.

AND ordering a beer gun :) the Brewer's Cup is coming up!

PIcked up a CP filler this week partly for that same reason.

Thinking about doing a 10 gallon batch of wheat beer (50% pils, 50% wheat malt).  I plan to ferment one carboy with WLP300 for a more classic German Wheat flavor profile, the other with Safale K-97 dry yeast, which I happen to have on hand. The second carboy will later get racked on top of 3lbs of cherry puree for a secondary fermentation.

Any thoughts on that dry yeast?  I've never used this one. I don't want any banana/clove clashing with the cherry.  Can I ferment both at the same temperature, say 62F?

Nothing here, I'm working on my brew shed and equipment, but the brews I made in February are finally drinkable.  The rye IPA and a stout I made were both salty until this week, the IPA lost a lot of hop flavor and aroma but its drinkable, its a bit big for this time of year maybe but what the heck.   ;D

Nothing brewing this week. Just kegging & lagering 10 gallons of a Vienna Lager I brewed a few weeks ago. Should be ready for the 4th of July bash!!!
If Homebrew & BBQ aren't the answer, then you're askin' the wrong questions... Cheers!!!

I've got two small batches to bottle this weekend and a wit to brew sometime next week. I'm on vacation and my wife's at a conference. Who knew beer could keep you out of trouble?
It's such a fine line between stupid and clever.

Not brewing.  Just bottled some Amarillo APA.  The club run competition is tomorrow and I am helping.

Saturday going to a local brewpub to rack beer from a "same wort different yeast experiment".

Pretty busy for not making any beer.`
