Does anyone have the instructions for those little labels people put on the grolsch lids?

If you go to the Avery web site they have free label making templates. You can get the Avery round labels at Staples then just print them out.

Managed to finally get ahead on chores and took advantage of being stuck inside today. Brewed a Golding Hopped English Bitter from Mad Fermentationist, mostly because I had everything on hand.

Had to make something with S-04 because it was the only yeast I had that was ready to pitch. Going to use left over wort to build starters for all the yeast I have laying around.

So I thought I'd punish myself today and brew a Hefeweizen using a triple decoction mash.
I started at 7:30 this morning and it's now 3:45 and I just started my sparge. Still have a 90 minute boil to go. Better be worth it...

I brewed a 22 gallon batch 2 weeks ago, biggest batch yet.. Ended up filling 4 kegs last night.

Very happy not to be bottling  :cheers:

Last weekend I did my 200th batch of beer and to celebrate I did an imperial maple brown porter. Today Iím transferring it to secondary along with a piece of toasted and charred sugar maple wood. In a week or two Iíll add 2.5# of grade B syrup and in a few months when Iíll bottle, Iíll prime it with maple syrup

That sounds great @jamie_savoie but be careful with priming with maple syrup. Last time I used it I over primed the bottles and they were way over carbonated.
Sounds like a terrific beer though!

Do you know how much you used?
I was thinking using this calculator

For 6 gal @ 2.2 vol it would take me 140g of maple (or 0.44cup)

I used a calculator it was probably that one. But it's probably a good idea to take a gravity reading on the syrup first by watering it down a bit. That way you don't have the same issues I did.
