first brew since april
« on: July 17, 2015, 11:36:53 AM »
not sure why, but after several months without brewing, I always wonder if i will dork something up on that first batch; forgetting something, missing targets, etc.

well not today brew gods! mash temp, PH, OG, volumes...CHECK   ;D

good to be back.

i guess it's like riding a bike  8)

using amarillo for the first time. 1oz each centennial and amarillo at last 15min, 1oz each cascade, citra and amarillo last 5 minutes. going to dry hop with some cascade and amarillo also.

I haven't brewed since April myself. Life's too darn busy. I did get my local malt share recently so I need to make it happen. I need to make a hire at work that is taking longer than I hoped and an addition to our house is taking up a lot of time. Once I get my department full strength I'll probably take two weeks off and spend some of that time brewing.
Don't let the bastards cheer you up.

That sounds like a glass I could appreciate, perferrably with some of those ribs you make.  I'd be curious to hear of the results of the Pure Pitch you used, I'm swamped at work as well and this could be a welcome development.
Run then beer.

yes it would be nice for the unplanned brew day or just because it works pitching a pack w/o starter. mine was 1.050 OG- we will see. not sure at this point if i'd go up to 1.070 as it says.

I haven't brewed in two weeks and it seems like an eternity.... Gotta clean some kegs to empty some fermenters, then back at it next week....

I really like Amarillo it has a wonderful citrusy flavor and aroma like orange/grapefruit. It also works well in combination with other hops.

+1. Combines well with pretty much any ale hop like a champ.
