I brewed a Cream Ale this morning and Sunday I will be kegging/bottling an Imperial Porter.  I have a case of bombers, I'm going to add some coffee to some and vanilla to the other half of those that get bottled to mix this batch up.
I keep thinking about building a Cream Ale but I just can't do corn. I wonder how Flaked barley would work. Maybe 70% pils 30% Flaked. Then something light like Willamette and all in whirlpool. 1056 but on the chilly side to hold back esters a little.

I actually used flaked rice in this one...more nuetral flavor. I actually like the corn contribution but wanted to give the flaked rice a go.
Flaked rice, or at least rice, also was a traditional ingredient in Cream Ales. I have used flaked rice in some beers, and it has a different impact on the beer's flavor.

Oh, and welcome back Jonathan.

I hope Amarillo and Chinook play nice together.


They play really nice IMO. Used them together quite a few times. Not far off the Amarillo/Simcoe thing but yet has its own thing going.

I haven't used Chinook in a couple years and Amarillo is probably my favorite American hop which I use quite a bit. The last couple of years I've been busy trying all the new hop varieties...kinda nice to get back to the classics.

For sure. I like to try the new ones, too. But that Arrogant Bastard-ish beer I made last year with all Chinook (like Stone) was fantastic.Forgot how much I like Chinook.

Not on the weekend, but on Wednesday I'm planning to attempt an 1800s porter replica.

On Monday I'll be making a Bohemian Pilsner - pretty much one of Jamil's takes and based on Pilsner Urquell, but instead of a decoction or step mash I'll be mashing single infusion at 154 - 155F, Best Pils malt with 9% carapils -- also a tad of vienna (3.5%).  All Czech saaz hops, and WY 2001. 

My LHBS owner told me today that Wyeast will be removing that yeast from their year-round inventory soon because not enough people are buying it often enough.

Milk Porter, basically english porter with some some rye and lactose in it for body and 4.2% ABV. 

5.75lb Maris Otter
1lb Oats
1lb Rye Malt
12oz C40
8oz Chocolate
8oz lactose
3.2oz Carafa III dehusked
2oz Roast Barley

Some hops to 18IBU @ 60 (not sure what hops, I have Mt Hood, Ultra, Cascade, Columbus, and Zythos)

WY1968
Risk of failure should be no deterrent to trying.

Yeah, that's a real shame. Those are good strains.

Wow, he had mentioned the 2001 was one on a list.  Thanks for sharing that list!  I thought Forbidden Fruit was pretty popular.  I guess not, or maybe not any more!  At least the yeast I got was made this week.  I bought malt and hops for a second 10-gal batch, for the re-pitch.  We'll see how that goes - I have a second hip replacement coming up the end of March, so not sure if I'll still have viable saved yeast by the time I can brew again.

Guess I'm getting back into yeast banking...it's almost criminal that 2001 is going away. Too few home brewers/creaft beer fans appreciate lager to begin with...but to stop selling the original pils yeast...
I like flat beer...

Makes me appreciate the White Labs vault program a bit more.
