Jealous... I have everything ready to go, but I need some snow to melt, or at least for the wind to die down for a day. Fingers crossed for Monday/Tuesday.
Beer is like porn. You can buy it, but it's more fun to make your own.

Looks awsome!

I like the hand full of pale chocolate.  I just tried that same addition in my last batch.  I was drinking mine last week (brewed in July) and I was surprised how much I liked it over the batches I have done without.

Enjoy it, but make sure to let it lager for a while.  It is hard to do but it is worth it!

Sean, I owe the ability to make this beer to you and the guidance you gave me through the
water world of palmer's nomograph.  Thanks to you ......Slainte!


Edit: The timing of this is going to work for the lager phase I have to leave town for
some equipment training.

lot of acid malt man  :o  - you must have some pretty alkaline water?

color looks spot on - should be tasty!

More like I do not have a Ph meter and all the solutions for same.  I have had
good luck using this amount with the water I make from the RO machine at da store
 in previous batches...beers from this have been real tasty compared to
when I was not modifying my water....
I add chalk back in the mix (dissolved for days in carbonated distilled water (carbonic acid) thanks Kai.)
calcium sulfate
gypsum
epsom
NaCl
Sodium Bicarbonate

how much I liked it.

That has been my experience with that malt...I do like it mucho....
This has really fermented in a rapid amount of time....I have
placed the bucket in a bit warmer room for the d-rest after only
3 days, air lock has really slowed down. These guys chew
sugar pretty efficiently.....
