So I've decided to try something new with a portion of the maple sap this year... A maple sap Dunkelweizen!
So that's what I plan for my brew day tomorrow.

I made a Belgian stout last night. It was actually my first time cold steeping dark grains

Oh cold steeping is a nice method. I got hooked the fist time I tried it...

So, this past Saturday, I finally decided to get off my lazy butt, and finally attempt my first all grain brew(in my new Fermentasaurus).  I brewed a red Citra Bomb.

For my first attempt, I am not disappointed, yet not overjoyed.  I drastically under-calculated my volumes, and looks like I'll have more trub loss than I wanted.  My OG was acceptable, 1.041, I was hoping for a bit higher, oh well.

Everything is now chugging along nicely.

I have the pressure kit for it, unfortunately, no spunding valve, hoping it doesn't explode, I would assume the red PRV on it should keep that from happening.

Awesome Marc!! The first time is almost impossible to guess your volume correctly. Hopefully you kept good notes so you can start to standardize!

Yup, take notes on everything. Eventually you figure out which ones you need to make things consistent, and then you get good (lazy) enough that you don't even take them!

I had my first attempt at a maple ale with sap instead of water near the end of syrup season. I used a british ale yeast and it took forever to ferment but it's finally in the keg. I added 8oz of maple syrup to the keg. I'm pretty sure the majority settled to the bottom, which would explain why the first glass tasted like buckleys. It is still carbonating, but I think it's going to need to sit and mellow for a couple weeks.
