So many beers to brew, so little time!
Think I'm going to do another Berliner, I gave away lots of beer in February which was nice so I'm seriously down on kegs. I do 2 kegs of sour at a time and have a dedicated tap for it so time to put it back on the menu.
I brewed a split batch NEIPA yesterday with some buddies. 8 gallons split into my Ss Brewbucket and a keg. Used a hop shot for bittering and then 4oz Galaxy for a 35min whirlpool. Planning to DDH each one with 7oz of hops (one is getting Hallertau Blanc/Galaxy and the other is getting Vic Secret/Galaxy). 18hrs into fermentation now and both are bubbling like nuts. Did a 1L pitch of London III into each (about 190B cells per batch). Should be more than enough for 4 gallons of wort.
Just to see the difference in taste of yeast makes, I did a batch today made with DME and used three water jugs for fermenters.
When I bought the DME this morning I told the guy I have been liking the Grapefruit taste I got with the Wayners. He steered me towards a hops called Ahtanum So i tossed in an ounce of that. I tried BRY-97 - Safale- 04 - and German Ale Yeast K-97 . the K-97 is the one that made me try this idea out.
Brewing this tomorrow evening https://www.brewersfriend.com/homebrew/recipe/view/1126862/waltzing-matilda
Trying the kettle chilling again over night then into the fermentor in the morning.
I've not done a batch for some time littlies sure take your time away.
I assume my next one will be cider again....
Cit Ruby Cit - American IPA
Planning a Friday afternoon/evening brew.
I am probably brewing another ESB, maybe the same one I’m drinking. I may drop a percent or 2 of victory malt and a percent or 2 of the extra dark crystal, maybe drop the chocolate a smidge too. I also thought of replacing the extra dark with medium crystal but I do not want it sweeter. I’ll also replace one of the additions of fuggles with EKG. Not brewing until next weekend so I’ve got time to plan. Need to use the rest of the Pub slurry.
Feel for you Zambezi soon enough I'm sure you'll be mashing in again.
This is the malt bill for David Heath's ESB, modified slightly for what was available to me.
The Patagonia pale malt is pretty much the same as Maris Otter
Nice. I need to get some Lyle’s anyway. I’m going to try this at some point.
If the weather holds off for tomorrow I will be brewing a Scottish 80/-. It's my birthday today anyway so it's a day for emptying a few bottles - not that I need any more empties. I want to fill them. Got my label ready for it though..
Happy birthday, Alan!! Cheers man
Happy birthday @AHarper it truly is a reason for celebration!
First beer tonight will be a toast to you Alan.
My next brew will be either a tweaked version of my Smithwicks-ish Irish Red or an ESB. For the ESB, I'm debating between David Heath's version and a BYO version (https://byo.com/recipe/fuller-s-esb-clone-2/). Main difference between the two is that BYO doesn't have any added sugar.
@Craigerrr, how did your first go at David Heath's ESB turn out?
@Josh Hughes, I'd also ask how yours is turning out?
I'm still lagering my version of Fest by Troeggs and I still have quite a bit of beer but I'm thinking of brewing a 2 gallon SMaSH with 2 row and Lotus hops maybe tomorrow.
