I brewed for the first time in a very long time on Saturday. 5 gal of my go to stout recipe. I haven't had beer on tap in a while.

It was nice getting back into it!

So being stuck at home does have it's perks. I brewed a batch of Birch Sap Saison today. Put my kids to work hauling sap out of the woods. So that made my job a bit easier...

Since being confined I did a few brews:
-Triple IPA
-Peanut butter brown ale
-Haskap seltzer
-Pastry stout (coconut, almond, vanilla)
-English barleywine (13% all malt)
-Hefeweizen
-Helles
And I have a Czech Pils lined up this weekend  :rock:

Peanut butter brown sounds interesting

8 batches is pretty impressive.
I have 3 in so far. I thought I was going to make a bunch, but it's not that easy/obvious.
- IPA (all citra)
- Munich Helles
- Amarillo Saison
I'll try to squeeze another one in if I see a window. Maybe another Lager. Then a Porter, then a Pale Ale...

Hey @jamie_savoie  I've been eyeing up Seltzers as well. Did you have any grain in yours, or all sugar? I've been reading that RO water and yeast nutrient is important. Any thoughts on yeast?

I did 3 different versions so far. 1 with 20% Light DME and 2 100% sugar and I prefer the one with 20% DME in it. Gives it a bit of body
I added 1 round teaspoon of nutriment and for yeast I used 2x sachet of EC-1118
I also used RO with 1.2g gypsum, 2.4g calcium chloride, 2.4g epson salt and adjusted pH to 5.0 with lactic

Let us know what you do and how it turns out. My fav one so far was the one with some dme along with lemon, juniper and some spices. Taste like a lemon gin tonic
