    I'd expect that with 007. Similar to what I've been getting with Empire Ale from Mangrove Jack. None of the beers were overly sweet though. I'm starting to really like that yeast.

    Just racked Sticky Blonde into the secondary, refilled the primary with a fresh batch of Dirty Boh, think I need to increase the grain bill, both batches are about .006 short on gravity.

    Well I decided that was last batch for that yeast because of the high finish gravity but was such a clean tasty beer I'm kicking myself now for not giving it another crack for it's 6th generation. I'd been using that yeast since the start of the year a great allrounder I'd buy it in a heart beat again for sure.

    I went to BS3 a year ago. The acid calculation needs a correction factor, other than that, all is good.

    Just took a peek at my first iteration of Guinness' Rye Pale Ale that I aerated and pitched late Thursday night. Judging from the Krausen residue, fermentation was quite vigorous last night. The Krausen has subsided considerably and it's still chugging away. Guinness Rye.jpg

    I'm going back to 5 gallon batches as I've been drinking just to empty kegs for to long now. Time to focus on "quality" if that is something my patience level allows.
    Prepping an IPL tomorrow and my wife wants another Tonka porter so prepping the recipe for that.

    How do you add the tonka? I had a wonderful stout with Tonka beeans and it's been in the back of my mind since.

    Getting ready to transfer my Nacho Cream Ale to keg. I normally add my peppers the last 10 minutes of the boil, but made a tincture with vodka this go around. I'll be interested to see how it compares.
    I fermented the entire time under pressure, so it should be ready to start drinking almost immediately. My keezer is to full now so I couldn't fit the Fermzilla in there to chill and cold crash. The keg however is nice and cold, ready to be filled.

    The Zilla has been rock solid holding pressure at 15 psi thanks to the Blowtie valve. Not a single leak, drip, co2, nothing. It was a little frustrating working out all the kinks and how to properly use the Zilla, but well worth the effort imo. I've got zero issues with it now.

    Uh I have my wife crush them up with her mortar and then I soak them in a bit of vodka to sterilize. Then I just toss the whole thing in primary. I think it was 3 beans last year. Then I just let it all settle out when I keg.
