Whatcha Brewin' this week -- 2009 Nov 18-24?
« on: November 17, 2009, 01:43:43 PM »
Post your brewing plans here.
I'll be adding Vanilla to a Robust Porter and then to bottles,
bottle a Scottish Light 60/- (a starter)
brewing a Strong Scotch Ale on the yeast cake.

Partigyle Saturday.  :D  5 gallon Strong Scotch Ale and then a 10 gallon 60/- Scottish Ale.  Been stepping up the Wyeast 1728 since Sunday.  Brewclub member offered to help.  Should be a hoot!!

If Homebrew & BBQ aren't the answer, then you're askin' the wrong questions... Cheers!!!

Well I had planned to brew during the 2009 Nov 11-17 thread! Looks like I will miss this one as well...

I have a doppel using a nice starter of WLP820. Man, I underestimated how slow this stuff is. Going on 4 weeks, still chugging along. Started at .072 and only down to .030 now. It has not stopped fermenting, Still a nice head, but it is just a PAINFULLY slow chug. It is tying up my main fermenter pot and  my fridge!

Ooh, looks nice Matt.

I've got a Racer 5 clone to bottle, if I get around to it this week.
It's such a fine line between stupid and clever.

Thanks!  I've always wanted to try Racer 5.  We don't get Bear Republic in the Twin Cities (as far as I know).

I had it before I saw all the hype and loved it. It may not live up to everything you see written about it but it's one of my favorite IPAs. Hmm, maybe it's time to take a sample.

Looks like they've made it to Wisconsin. That's only four hours or so, right :D

It's actually only about 30 minutes away from me.  Next time I'm in WI (which is pretty rare), I'll try to remember to look for it.

Finally cold enough to brew lagers here, so on Sun. I'm doing a German pils with WY2247.
