I brewed a helles last night and pitched yeast this morning. Did a decoction and that went well this time, I hit a nice beta rest temp. Took me till midnight to get it mostly cool, then threw it in the fermenting fridge and it was 48F this morning. Racked a German pils off the yeast and pitched the cake to the helles (WLP830).
Tonight I am going to make a cask conditioned ale with a 5L mini-keg. I have a bitter that is done fermenting so I'll put 4L in the cask and add my priming sugar, gelatin and a little dry hops. I don't think it'll be ready by this weekend, but I'll have the rest of the batch force-carbed to get me by. This little keg should work well, the tapper mechanism is set about 3/4" above the bottom of the container and the bung already has a hard spile.
This weekend if I have time I'm going to brew an amber. I got some WY1450 and the specialty malts to make Denny's amber recipe.
All you NHC attendees, have a good time!
