I’m on vacation this week, looking at 10 cords of firewood I’ve got to stack, a garden full of weeds, and a pothole in the driveway but I’d rather make beer! I did make a Hefeweizen yesterday. Thank heavens for rain.
I got a 50 lb bag of local Pilsen malt, 5 lbs of wheat malt, a pound of flaked maize and a pound of black kilned malt and some Crystal and Nugget hop pellets. Also a packet of Notty, safale 05, and safale 04, and a pouch of D-90 candi syrup.
My “local” home brew store is 2.5 hours away.
I really like SA Old Fezziwig, and St. Bernardus Christmas Ale. Any ideas of what to make? Is it too early to brew a warmer? I use a cooler mash tun, no real temperature control fermenting, 5 gallon batches.
