Just lit the fire! Brewing an American Pale Ale today. Going to be the start of a series of single hop pales I'm doing to try and nail down different hop characteristics.

Right on!  Brew day always a good day

Not today, but in the next week I'm brewing a rye pils and an IPA.  The IPA will be a test of X17 experimental organic hops that I got ahold of.  They're a Magnum/Cascade cross and have a lot of tangerine/lemon/lime to them.

Those sound delicious sir.
I'm starting this series with Cascades.

I'd love to get my hands on those. Do you know who is developing it (YCR, Haas, HBC, etc.)? Does it go by any other name? I'll have to keep a close eye on my usual sources and snap some up if it becomes available.

No brewing here, I'm taking a dynamics midterm. It's killing me, the weather is perfect!
Corn is a fine adjunct in beer.

And don't buy stale beer.

Hoping they'll be available commercially next year.  A brewery I consult for got 10 lb. and gave me 1/2 lb. to play with.

Much smaller scale...it's a grower named Pat Levy.  At this point, X17 is all it's called.

It's great to hear that the little guys are able to do some innovation as well. Hopefully the resources are there to scale up production if it's a winner.

As I write I'm brewing a Brown Porter--got 15 more minutes of boiling. It's after midnight, the wife and kids are asleep, I'm sampling a dunkleweisen, and I'll be beyond tired tomorrow. But I'm happy.

This will be my second porter this fall: brewed a smoked robust porter but am looking forward to a more traditional version.

Will be brewing my first California Common in many years tomorrow.  Then saving the yeast for a large baltic porter.  Should be a beautiful day here for Colombus Day.
