20 minutes from knock out on a traditional bock.  This is the second brew in a row with no problems.  Unless you count overadjusting the pH too low.  The Kolsch from two weeks ago went into a keg and a carboy today also.  I feel like I'm getting something dsone!  And tomorrow is a Holiday!

Wouldn't you know it?  While I was in here typing the propane tank emptied.  A few more minutes until knock out......

You realize you brought that on by saying "This is the second brew in a row with no problems..." ;-)

Brewed an ordinary bitter, and looking to keg my first Saison tonight.  Maybe I'll brew tomorrow and reuse some of that saison yeast.

Brewed a Scottish 80/- on Saturday afternoon.  This will serve two purposes.  It will be served at a Nebraska Stroke Association benefit auction and beer fest next month.  Our club always serves a couple kegs of beer along side of all the commercial breweries and distributors.  We also seem to win the people's choice award for the best beer every year.

The second purpose of this beer will be to give me a yeast cake to use for the wee heavy I plan to brew in a couple weeks.  On Monday I plan to make a cider.

My last attempt at an IPA came out as more of a pale ale, my last DIPA came out as more of a strong IPA (my first partigyle batch), so tomorrow is going to be an IIPA and if time permits and American Wheat or Standard American Lager (6 gallons). If I do the lager I'm gonna broke it down to 3-2G batches for secondary, one with no additions, one with a dry hop, and one racked onto raspberries (for the ladies).
Primary: Lambic
Secondary: Oktoberfest, German Pilsner, Double IPA,
In Bottles: Lucknow IPA clone, Rough Rider Brown Ale clone,
John Harvard Imperial Stout clone, Hoppy Amber, Witch's Brew (Habanero and Smoked Corn Small Ale), Porter, Dunkleweizen, Dry Stout, Irish Red Ale, American Maple Wheat Ale, Black Wit, Belgian style Wit, Belgian Golden Strong Ale
Kegged: IPA, Saison, Hoppy Brown Ale

Seems like every once in a while I run across someone who just doesn't like rye beers.  Not a big deal....you know how I feel about wheat beers!

well, if the beer tastes like the wort does, we have no problems here!  little efficiency woes which is odd for me (I'm german afterall) and hit  1.068-9 but I actually drank the whole wort sample!

Got high hopes!

BTW - I used Rahr Pale Ale malt for the first time - I used 1.038 as the expected - what do you guys use?

Brewed the Last of four beers for my annual "OktoBEERfest!" - a Bavarian Hefeweizen - and racked10 gallons of Helles for lagering.  The Märzen and Düsseldorf Altbier are ready to go.

Just put it to bed, a 1.060ish English IPA called "Buyer's Remorse". The beer will serve as the yeast starter for the Mortgage Killer 30 year brew.

Good day to brew!

And on the plus side our landlord's gardener showed up while I was brewing and despite the language barrier he totally understood I was brewing cerveza and then downed three smallish glasses of my 10% Saison while declaring it good!

I generally use Rahr pale and get about the same numbers.

I didn't brew last weekend, but I did get the wiring done so that I can install a water heater and finally finish the plumbing in my garage/brewery.  Tomorrow we run PEX for the water lines, then install cabinets, sink and water heater.
Life begins at 60.....1.060, that is!

My cousin's boyfriend showed us the Cave Mountain Brewing Co. http://www.cavemountainbrewingcompany.com in Windham NY, just NW of Hunter Mountain ski area on NY 23, but we didn't stop for dinner cause we were full from our first stop.  We'll catch it next time.

If you like German ambiance and food look for the Crystal Brook Resort's Mountain Brauhaus. http://www.crystalbrook.com/mountain-brauhaus  We ate Sunday supper there. 

When you pull up and park you can hear the accordion music playing from inside. We consumed several pitcher of Spaten Oktoberfest. I had Jäger schnitzle, red cabbage and spaetzle. Mmmm. They also had Goulash as a special. The accordion player had a fancy squeeze box with a built in Oom Pah band inside. There was also dancing at 3:00 PM on a Sunday afternoon.  My cousin and her boyfriend are avid polka dancers and know all of the "hot spots" to dance at!
