I am going to smoke 150 pounds of malt this weekend.
I know, you're all asking where am I going to get papers that big, but I get to help brew a collaboration beer at a friend's brewery next weekend.  I'll post some pictures of my smoker in action.

Berliner Weisse right now

Running it off into a bucket
Covering it for a few days while we go away camping.
When we get home I'll put it in a carboy and throw some US-05 at it

Guy in the club made one using this method and the beer is tremendous

i am curious to know how this turns out...please let us know :-)
Take it easy...

I have Monday and Tuesday off and am Home Alone as well those days... so I'm going to brew SOMEthing. I have been thinking about brewing Hard & Hardy, the English barleywine from Brewing Classic Styles, to set aside for the Christmas season. But Denny's Rye IPA came out so good I am tempted to brew it again...

You've got me really excited now! This is the first time I've made it. So . . based on your timeline, are you suggesting the beer won't reach its zenith for a couple of years?
Just brew it...

It started getting really good after 1 year, but it took another year for it to really get those hallmark OA characteristics to come out.

I got the recipe from an old NB member who emailed Adam directly and got a great response. 

One thing I recommend is boiling down a gallon of first runnings to around a pint-quart - its a nice touch.

Good luck!

I'm going to try to sneak in the 1776 Porter from Radical Brewing. I'm a little nervous that there is too much brown and biscuit malt, so may add some six row to help with the conversion. This will be my first recipe brew AG, minus a small tweak. Also my first use of MONTH, interested to see difference.

Hit 80% efficiency for the third beer in a row last night.  Guess it's time to bump up the efficiency in my recipes.

Wit right now using some Lime Zest in addition to bitter orange pee and coriander

Hoping the lime gives some freshness to the nose.
