What's Brewing This Weekend - 10/7 Edition
« on: October 05, 2011, 08:47:47 AM »
Happy Oktober!

What's on the brewing agenda mein damen und herren?

I was going to brew today, but the universe decided to be funny and rain in LA. Now, I have to work while listening to the sirens of the EMT crews racing around to all the wreck sites. Currently I show more than 20 active collisions around the city!

I'm planning to brew a RIS today.  And it's raining here too Drew!  You can't let the rain stop you in this area though.

I brewed on Monday....5 gallons of 1.084 OG Belgian Strong Dark Ale fermenting merrily away.  Tonight I will add a pound of D180 candi syrup to it...what will that boost the effective OG to?  1.088?

No brewing this weekend, as it is Opening Day of pheasant and antelope season on Saturday.

Yeah, you guys have contingency plans for rain. In LA rain is treated far more apocalyptically!

Contingency plans for rain?  That's like saying you guys have contingency plans for sun!

Ingredients ordered for Stout may not get here on time.  I may have to piece together a Steam Beer with leftovers.

No brewing, planning. Gonna get a fresh dumped whisky barrel soon and need to plan a big ol' barley wine to fill it with. Thinking 100% munich 10L and golding hops.

No brewing this weekend, though the Quad I have fermenting seems to have attracted fruit flies to my basement (damn WLP500).  I am hoping and praying that none of the little bastids find their way in.  Its in a bucket :(.  Guess I'll have to wait and see.  I have found that moisture attracts them as well, they happen to be OK with Star-San apparently. >:(

It's a busy time around here... it's a mad dash to thanksgiving with the family which entails bringing LOTS of beer/beverage.
Bottling plans: New England style cider
  Ballantine IPA (it's been on 3oz of dry hops for 7 days)
  2 gallons of experimental un-hopped sour porter
  Saison du Cherry Limeade
  Cocoa Blond (just 2 row and cluster hops with cocoa nibs and vanilla bean)

Brewing plans: Tres Leches Stout (oatmeal stout with 2 or 3 pans of tres leches cake in the fermenter)
  Wild West Pale Ale (with wild grown hops)
  Contemptuous Prick (Arrogant Bastard)

I misted the outside of the fermenter with bleach.  It didn't keep them away, but they didn't last long after they landed on it.  starting to cool down now and that seems to help as well.
