My deerpark pale with New England yeast. Definitely different than the bry-97. Thinner head and less mouth feel. Finished at 1.02 while the bry-97 finished at 1.012.

Tasty Belgian Quad at 10%. This beer had an addition of oak cubes soaked with Woodford Reserve Bourbon for 1 week.

That looks like a great tasting beer!

thanks! the recipe was
OYL006 yeast
3lbs 2row
300g pale chocolate
225g chocolate
325g crystal 60
1.4kg DME

hallertau (had it on hand) to about 30IBU

1/2 flat tsp calcium chloride


i tried making a higher chloride amount than sulfate, my intention was a distinctly sweet, chocolatey beer. if i did it again i would probably have a more typical assertive bitterness profile. it feels flaccid. not even exactly a fan of the pale chocolate malt either tbh, too smooth.

my re-do of this would be a more typical london porter with a lot of brown malt (10%), same proportion of chocolate malt, ~35 IBU, etc

It's a sunny Friday afternoon, a long week is over, spring training baseball is on TV and I have my Memory Lapse Pale Ale (with Mt. Hood hops and S-04) on tap.  It's a good day.

Golden stout. I get a lot of people probably hate the idea of this but it turned out great. The homemade amber malt, toasted oat flakes, and roasted nibs made this a fun one to make.

Looks better than most of my beers that have been in the keg for a day.

No sun today.  In fact it's snowing big flakes right now.  But I do have spring training baseball and I have pilsner made with Edelweiss hops and Omega 113.  Pardon the plastic cup.  I'm painting and doing some other projects at home today and I am far too clumsy and will kill one of my good glasses.  :D

More than you would think. Fg is high so it’s reasonably sweet as well.
