XX Ale -- strong Mild.

Looks tasty. Is that a Pattinson recipe brewed with the Chevallier Malt?

Chevallier, yes, and it's a mash-up of a couple Pattinson recipes probably with a tweak of my own, just trying to represent a pre-WW1 Mild.

I like beer.  I like to make beer.   I don't like to argue about beer or making beer.

Hey, I remember that conversion... so, are you ultimately happy with the color? Looks nice to me.

Definitely.  When it was first brewed I thought it was a bit dark.  But no, it's pretty much exactly what I was after.  Thanks go out to you and the others that gave their input when I was putting that recipe together.  Cheers!

I'm saving a bucket of Chevallier for this year's Christmas beer.   I'm thinking I might give that one a try.  Enjoy!

Riggulator Cream Ale
I use induction so I just mashed in around 120 and let it rise to 165ish. After listening to one of the Brulosophy podcasts that covered a very similar method I was a little worried about the  head, but the flaked barley seems to have done the trick!

Here’s PawPaw’s Beantown Lager just in time for the Easter Sunday crowd. I love it when a plan comes together.

It is. Very good malt. The best description I can come up with is ‘rich’. It has a different richer flavor than I’ve had before. I can’t say I’ll use it exclusively but I’ll definitely use it again.

83.3 Lamonta (Pale)
8.3% Opal 44
8.3% Metolius (Munich style)

It was also the second generation of the Imperial Harvest yeast. It turned out much cleaner than the initial pitch. The Export bier never cleared like this one without some persuasion. This one dropped crystal clear with only time and temp.

...but I did change my mash schedule a bit as well so who knows. I am pleased with this effort.

Good to hear.  I've taken a real shine to a local malt producer, some of the best malt I've ever used.  (As good as or better than any import, and cheaper for me than commodity malts.)  But this local maltster only makes base malts (Pilsner, pale, Vienna, Munich.)  I might consider some  Mecca for specialties.  Not local, but made with integrity and, hey, I use PNW hops anyway.

And as a serial pitcher, I'm convinced yeast only keeps behaving better as it gets used to living and working in your brewery.
