Brewing a dampfbier tomorrow.  Not very patriotic, I know.  But very tasty!  8)

Busy brew day for me.  I'm smoking three sacks of malt over alder wood chips for my friend's brewery in Gainesville - we'll make 10 bbls of smoked porter with it next week.  I also smoked 5# for me and am currently in the boil of my smoked porter.  I had to transfer my Berlinner Weisse to another carboy to free up a 6.5 gallon fermenter, and I kegged 5 gallons of HopfenWeisse that had been dry hopped with Citra.
Almost done.  Still need to chill the wort.

It was a busy day at WSBW......

20 Gallons of my "Kloef" which, if forced to pigeon hole it, would probably be a triple...... lots of grain, sugar and a big asss starter of WY3787, OG 1.070- ish.

Things went well today. The brewhouse routine is settling down. More routine, less panic. Have some ideas for improvement of the process. Stay tuned for the mother of all chillers AND trub separators.....

The lychee were a blast to pick, but a pia to peel.  They are frozen solid in the freezer and the cell walls are rupturing (letting the juice out.)  The kiawe mead is rockin n rollin in the stockpot/fermenter.  The yeast are really looking forward to meeting the lychees tomorrow. 

Just now started drawing off tails on the Very Old Dark Kilauea Ale.  That's been running since sunrise. 

While the old dark ale was running I also made a batch of Kona coffee soap and a batch of coconut soap.  You've created a monster Euge!

I was able to brew 10 gallons of an unknown style.  ::) I say unknown because there was one pound of a mystery malt that I don't know what it was. Forgot to label the ziplock. Anyway, Est spec gravity was 1.060, hit 1.061 when corrected on the hydrometer. Should be interesting....  :)

Brewing today - some sort of American Amber Ale.  Was supposed to be an AIPA but ended up darker.  I'm addicted to chocolate malt. Seem to want to put it in everything.
10 lbs 2-row
1 lb light Munich
0.5 lb C45
0.25 lb C120
1 oz Chocolate malt.
1.5 oz Centennial @60
1 oz Cascade @ 30
1/2 oz Cascade @ 15
1/2 oz Cascade @ 0
1 oz to be dry hopped. 
WLP001 with a good starter.

No brewing for me, relatives are visiting.

However, I have tapped a keg of Classic American Pilsner that is fantastic!  Perfect beer for the Fourth/
