POLL--what should I brew?
I'm going to experiment with something different today...I'm going to collect a second run-off from the Loose Cannon batch and do a mini brew on the stove.
Ingredients I have on hand:
crystal 120, 60, 40, 20
These will have to be steeped. I also have DME on hand in case I need to fix the gravity.
Once I get a good idea on a style, I'll worry about hops--i have about 10 (EDIT: Errr....19) varieties to choose from.
Yeast has to be safale 56 or nottingham--I'm leaning towards using the nottingham.
POLL CLOSES AT 1PM EST.
I can't imagine a better brew to pull out in a few weeks than a nice stout. Mine usually get enough carbonation in just ten days and that would put you right on target for St. Patty's day. :mug:
Yeah, irish stout is out--no roasted barley. ESSENTIAL.
Oatmeal stout i could prolly pull off though.
FWIW, here are the hops I have on hand (assume it is enought to do a full batch):
I have taken this opportunity to inventory my hops....HOLY CRAP. I am a SICk individual.
An ESB would be nice!
I second the ESB. Fuller's is my favorite!
I said ESB, but I'm thinking more pale ale. Something nice and clean. Good spring beer. Fuggles and EKG. Half-pound of wheat for head retention. Some crystal 20, keep it pretty pale. Nottingham. Gravity around 1045 - 1050, IBUs maybe 35-40. Session beer.
Need me to change your vote?
Whatever I do, it will be a low grav session beer.
I'm surprised we don't have 1 vote for APA yet... :D
