Hopefully, those batches I didn't brew last weekend.

Planning a maibock and a Belgian of some sort.  The plan is to use the same malt bill.  I may add some dark candi syrup to the Belgian and call it a dubbel.  We shall see.

I like that idea a lot. Kind of a no brainer. What strain do you like best for dubbel?  I like 1214 if done cool, and 1762 best. 3787 is obviously good always.

I've got a starter of 3787 going.  I typically use the Chimay strain, because my wife loves it.  I think I used the Rochefort strain for years before I switched to the Chimay strain.  I need to split a batch or two and do some side-by-sides.  I haven't used 1762 in years.

Boil underway for a Classic American Pilsner. Or uh, I guess its now a Pre-Prohibition Lager. Lots of late saaz and hefty dose of flaked maize in this one.  Boil smells great!

My brewing consisted of gravity checks on my Helles, Helleses, Hellai?

no brew for me this weekend (first break in about 5 weeks).  ran some mini mash test for PH, and kegged couple batches.

I got fresh vials of 833 and 830 and have two batches in process that I will harvest slurry and use for next 6 or so brews each.

Have you tried open fermenting and top cropping? I truly believe skimming the sh*t off the top makes a difference in the smoothness of the finished beer. It's so much fun. I don't do a true open ferment, just set the lid on top of the bucket or cover the bucket with cling wrap loosely. It's awesome to be able to hear the fermentation going.

I'm brewing my None More Black IPA this weekend and plan to "open" ferment and skim the braunhefe. Fermenting this one with 1318, which will be interesting in black IPA.
None More Black!

I use BBs, so top cropping is not possible.

Some day, maybe Speidels.  But I have no need to change at the moment and other things to spend $$ on.

I just dumped a hard cider that never came around. Kegged an IPA for NHC and will be making a German Pils tomorrow.
