Just mash long and low is my 2c for a well attenuated crisp dry lager.
Mamacita's Mexican Dunkel. Not really a "stylistic" beer, just a dang good easy drinker modeled after some Mexican dark beer that I never knew because my Spanish kept me from understanding the server.
That recipe came from the book "Brewing Classic Styles" and it is very good. I brew it annually on my late sister Janets birthday.
An award winning beer from a friend of Jamil Z.'s.
Yessir. That's where I got it from. I've never seen a negative comment about the brew and I've meant to brew it for about a yr now. I've seen a newer 'session' version that Tasty has put out. I may give that one a whirl also closer to summer.
1.75 Qts/lb Infusion? I’ve moved from 1.25 to 1.5 and that improved my efficiency. Is that a BIAB or three vessel? What’s your fermentation schedule and temps? I ask as I am intrigued as well.
Are you referring to me? Not sure but if so, I mash in a 48 qrt cooler. Infusion mash @1.75 qrt per lb. I've been mashing a bit lower lately at 150 or so. I generally use s-05 and ferment at 64f. I may go a bit higher with my mash on this one...especially if I drop the dextrin malt.
I like keeping my mash liquid and sparge liquid volumes pretty close. Typically less than a gallon difference. I've found this is what works well for me and my set up.
Brew in a 3 vessel RIMS if you mean me. This last batch I mashed at 149f and it is crisper and cleaner with the cascade standing out more. Didn't do a Dry hop this time just put centennial in at flame out. Nee to put at least some of the carapils in for mouth feel and rich whitish head.
Just got home and poured a J Brown. Still a little chill haze but tastes great.
Now you're just rubbin it in lol!
Looks damn good though. I may have someone helping me hang drywall this weekend so I might have to postpone my brew session a week...
Most of my beers you can tell how many drinks it took when you finish the beer.
Hahaha! Killin me.
I've got some lines happening myself tonight with my pa.
Session Janet’s brown is next on deck for me.
Have a tart funky saison hangin out on oak and 3 lbs of cranberries at the moment...up next gonna try and produce a Gose with honeydew melon- mandarina and huell melon dry hop. Talked with my favorite spice shop in chi town about coriander and they get fresh seeds in quarterly from India sounds like a a lot of brewers in the area order from them keeping their supply rotated
Not sure what to do next, I'm low on kegs right now so I need to get some friends to drink more beer. (I'm still working on losing weight myself). I have a nice porter started and just did a Rye IPA.
I managed to score a 25kg sack of Munich though rather than the 1kg bags I normally get so maybe something Munich heavy.
No sense pouring a glass, don't want to miss a drop! HAPPY FRIDAY FELLOW BREWERS AND CONISOUERS
Sorry meant to post this on photos and videos should have posted before drinking the beer!
I'm sure it will taste just as delicious posted in either thread! Cheers!
