On tap for the holidays
« on: November 23, 2017, 02:12:43 AM »
How about you?  As for me:


London Porter (adapted from a Fuller's clone)

Raspberry Porter

Saison Buffoon (co-fermented with Blaugies and Dupont yeasts)

Plum Soured Saison (kettle soured with lacto, with red plum puree.  Idea from Orpheus Brewing's Atalanta.  Re-pitch of yeast from above batch)

ESB (adapted from 2011 NHC Gold-winning recipe)

Rochefort 8 clone

cherry apple hard cider

Happy to report they're all tasty, and hoping they'll get me through Christmas.

I have my homage to Landlord and Newcastle on tap. The turkey goes on the smoker first think tomorrow AM. Have a great Thanksgiving! 

The Christmas Special is lagering and will be tapped in three weeks when the Landlord kicks.

Wow!  That's quite a list.  Here's hoping your liver makes it to New Years.   ;D

You can hear me chuckling, right?  I have a couple dinners coming up (next one 9 people) + the silent auction at work for charity + Christmas parties + taking beer home for Christmas to family and friends.  It's not my liver that will suffer but meeting the expectations of everyone who's expecting a little taste.

Excellent work everyone!  Now you know how I get my ideas for what to brew next.  You're making me very thirsty and it's only 10:30 am.  It's a good thing I also have my home roasted coffee to satisfy that craving for quality beverage this early in the day.

BrewBama, no doubt that bird is smoking up nicely by now.  I'll be hosting a Thanksgiving Redux party a little more than a week from now and will likewise smoke a bird.  Stating the obvious here, but I find smoked meats go very well indeed with homebrew.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Is there anything that doesn't go well with homebrew?

Currently:
Rye Porter (about 1/2 a Keg left)
Session IPA w/El Dorado and Nelson Sauvin (1 keg left)
Kolsch (almost empty)
Hard Cider (almost empty)

I don't have any kegs waiting, but I've got 10 gallons of Wee Heavy in primary that I brewed Wednesday. Tomorrow I'm brewing 10 gallons of a Red Rye Ale. And I'm going to get a Cream Ale in later in the week to have ready for Christmas. If time and space permits, I'm also going to be brewing a Landlord clone and my NEIPA before christmas.
