    Had my doubts I could get done and setup in time today but strike water is heating and everything is setup and sanitized. Brewing a new recipe American Pale Ale.

    Anyone else tending kettle right now?

    Cheers!

    Not today, but it's a great day for it. Cloudy, rainy and cold. A great day to curl up with a warm mash tun!

    I'll be putting up a porter next weekend, but today my 'brewing' is limited to a big pot of turkey soup. :)

    All done, cleaned up and ale in primary. Just under 5 hours start to finish with a 70 minute mash time. Busted my butt but all in all a good brew day!

    just checked SG of first runnings ....bloody hell ! 1.090
    dare say this brew will end up with a bit more volume and a bigger kick than intended

    My processes are a bit strange , that was 15 l , batch size was supposed to be 25 l but still chilling so no idea what my volume or gravity into FV will end up

    Can't imagine I got the IBUs I wanted from 150 g of low AA% noble hops so looking more like a helles export ....still beer that I made so a good day

    Not a matter of efficiency this time , sure my supplier is giving me more than I ordered .
    Simply impossible that I could get that much otherwise
    7 points high on boil gravity threw all my IBU calcs out as well .
    Got an extra 3 litres of real wort starters boiled down from second and third runnings

    I have the opportunity to help brew here, with the membership I bought. They brew 19th century style. If you like sour beers, this is your place! The food is really good.
