I certainly didn’t mean to imply a certain style can only be brewed or consumed at certain times of the year, I was simply pointing out that the beer was “just in time for Oktoberfest” was a bit late based on the date the statement was made.

No problem!  This was my first lager, and I wanted to be able to say that I brewed it in March, did a decoction, a diacetyl rest, lagered over six months, and tapped at Oktoberfest time (actually on September 14).  I’ll probably do it again next year, and will most likely do a Festbier too. 

I’ve got a honey nut brown ale in the fermenter, and am getting ready to do a Winter Warmer Porter next.  This past Saturday our brew club, Illiana Beer Rackers Union (IBRU), filled a used bourbon barrel with the Black is Beautiful recipe brewed by myself and several members.    Hope to serve some of it next year at the Crown BeerFest.  Cheers!

Sunday afternoon I braised some boudin in doppelbock with onions and rosemary to pair with brie and crackers as I compared/contrasted my Dubbel with Chimay Red. Truly inspiring lunch! My dubbel made wlp400 is a very different beast but held up well as a dubbel by any measure.

nice, which ones the homebrewed version? left glass?

i made a sugar water wine with a small amount of crystal malt and it is too sweet (1.025FG) to be drinkable but is a great cooking wine. 12%ABV, one dollar a 750ml bottle, uncarbonated. no wasted beer bottles. its the only thing i cook with now

The one on right is the homebrew.

My version of Birrificio Italiano Tipopils that just went on tap last night.  Lagered for 8 weeks...

Today in the basement with football, an APA that is crisply finished with Ultra and Glacier.  Two hops you just don't hear much about anymore.

What not a lager? Looks great. Looks a lot like BrewBama’s grain bill, which I just kicked a keg of.  Delicious.

Grain bill here was pale ale malt, wheat, some C40 and also some Copper Malt.  I admit that I am liking this Copper malt in small amounts in almost any beer.  There is a nice depth of flavor and I feel like it really helps with some head formation and stability.  I used a bit in a Czech Pils recently.  Sue me!  :D

I make a lot of lagers in the spring and summer.  This was only the third ale I have made in 2020.  There's another one in my on-deck fridge and another one fermenting now.  Cheers.
