What's Brewing?
« on: August 28, 2015, 02:20:49 PM »
Stealing a popular thread from other forums... what's on the go for you today for beer? Cleaning kegs? Planning a recipe? Brewing a recipe?

Today I'm brewing up 9 gallons of Saison. I'm going to split half to use Danstar's Belle Saison, then use US05 on the other half. Should be an interesting experiment.

The wind is giving my burner some fits though, and it's taking forever to get up to mash temp.

Bottlin' up a selection of beers out of the kegs and picking out a few goodies out of the celar then heading up to Grand Falls' for tomorrow's epic meeting  :rock:

Also trying to figure out what I can brew next week with what's left in my grain inventory.
Give a man a beer and he'll waste an hour, teach him how to brew beer and he'll waste a lifetime.

I'm starting 3 weeks of vacation in an hour so...  :drunk:

I have an ambitous plan to brew a number of recipes over the break including an Oud Bruin, Berliner Weisse, Gose and of course as many hoppy beer as I can fit in.

Great idea for a thread @Two Wheeler  :cheers:

I'm planning for the labour day long weekend. I'm going to be brewing twice, the first will be the Mad Fermentationist's Saison 'Merican but I'm still deciding what I want to use for yeast. The second is a clone I'm making of a Nordic Farmhouse I tried from Liquid Riot in Portland. I've ordered everything I needed that I didn't already have, just need to go harvest some juniper boughs next week.

The Oud Bruin would be likely 12-18 months. The Berliner weisse and gose should be 4-5 weeks.

Tonight I tried something new... I meant to add orange zest to the boil of my saison on Friday but forgot. Tonight I decided to "dry hop" the zest. I gathered 17grams of zest and heated in microwave to 190 to kill any wild yeast (hopefully). Then added to the fermentation which has a couple points left to drop. Hoping that it will drop out like hops do!

Writing a recipe for a Red IPA today. Possibly doing a starter depending on yeast choice. Still debating.
