HAPPY FESTIVUS! I hope you all are ready for some feats of strength!  ;D

Seriously though, I'll be brewing an APA and an Ordinary Bitter over the weeked.

I brewed a classic dunkelweizen recipe this morning, I'm growing fond of those these days.

I have a DIPA (1.100 and 150 IBU) thats a week in primary.  The yeast is settling down now.

I have next week off and want to brew a Vienna lager (reviving frozen WLP830 today) and possibly a dubbel although I still have a keg of dubbel that I've yet to start drinking.  I figure to bottle this one though, got my corks in earlier in the week.

Tankdeer, that ordinary bitter sounds good too.  I kind of got away from those but I think it might be time to bring one back online.

What yeast are you employing?  I have a couple packets of S04, or 1026 in the freezer.

The classic - WLP002. I have some S04 as well, but I tend to save the dry yeast for emergencies.

Well, I was brewing and was cooling the batch when my IC blew a hole for some reason and shot hose water all into my wort. It was an expensive batch too, 30 lbs of Maris Otter plus specialty grains. IF YOU SEE KAY!!! :-[

Lame dude. You bring it back up to a boil to re-sanitize, of course your gravity and IBUs would change a bit.

Blew a hole in the copper at the last ring from the bottom. This particular chiller was only about 2 years old or a little more. I am bringing it to a boil again and boiling it back down to the 1.080 mark, probably gonna add some more hops (not necessarily a bad thing  ;)) and  pulling out my old chiller. Still sucks though - about 2 gallons of water got in before I turned the chiller off. So hopefully andy chlorine or hose taste will be blown off....  :-\

2 gallons? Damn dude. Was this your WIC? Morebeer brand? If so you might want to shoot them an email or something.

Saturday is the "feast of Stephen" so I'll be brewing a "Wenceslaus lager".  Pilsner malt, saaz hops & WLP802 Czech Budejovice.
Beer...Now there's a temporary solution!

How do you suspect the hole got there?
