A flight of three of my most recent beers on draft... Only one missing is my RIS not shown!

L to R:  NE Pale, Bitter and Schwarzbier.


Looks like a mimosa on the left.

Nice beers.

My latest APA. I'm really digging this beer. New malt bill of 75% two row, 20% Munich, and 5% C60. I think this will be my new APA bill in order to differentiate a bit more from my IPA bill. 3:1:1 Cascade:Citra:Amarillo at FWH, Whirlpool, and dry hop. Killer combo. This beer has cleared much faster than another beer that I've ever kegged. The only fining I used was whirlfloc. The secret might have been discovered by accident. I accidentally froze all of my kegs in my keezer solid by accidentally leaving the temp controller probe out of the keezer. It Screwed with the carbonation a bit, but was easily corrected. The beer was this clear about 3 days after tapping. It might end up Being my new practice except I'll do it before carbing.





Looks great, man!

Those look awesome! Love the Aventinus glass. Had some Celebrator in mine recently (need to get their glass someday - I have a glass problem).

Latest version of my APA called "Unplugged APA No.5". Thanks to (not only) water profile ( SO4/Cl 5.8 ) it is refreshing and really dry ;)

Indeed, now if only I had a 5 gallon keg of it instead of 2.5. That was the intention with the pale ale I have that tastes like cleaner...argh. Not sure wtf happened there.
I'm looking to get a brew bucket soon so I can close transfer into the keg like I do with my 2.5 gallon kegs. Plus, stainless is better than plastic.

what kind of impact does the 2% of special B have in a pale ale. I've never thought of using it in that?

I think it adds depth and character, you know that little sumpin-sumpin extra (except way better than Lagunitas...well what isn't better than Lagunitas?). Not sure what the color rating on the special B is, but this beer is probably 7 SRM when Beersmith said it should be like 9 SRM. Low oxygen makes for that lighter color. But I'm also wondering what the typical color rating on Special B is.

huh, might have to try it. At that percentage, do you get many of the prune juice/raisin notes special b tends to kick out?

I think it's 135 °L

You know, I'm not sure, but I'd think probably in the 4-6% range. This wasn't quite high enough amount for it to come through, or at least stick out anyway.

I think the Mrs. Did a good job... inside is a chocolate stout cake and sweet Bavarian cream.
