On a 100% completely unrelated note.... I think I need to host a "come over and eat and drink a lot" event soon.... not necessarily tied to a brew session (although I guess that's possible). New Years was great times and everyone in my house is finally over a few miscellaneous stomach bugs etc... I'm ready for a couple dozen beve's.

I haven't checked his thermostat but I'm betting it's in the upper 60's there. That's what it was at last year.

And yes, that is a sheetload of fermentation to have happen in 4 days. We're already at 14% ABV! Chris said it started off fast and was banging away like Ron Jeremy in a convent by Sunday night.

PTN
Is that hotter than last year?
That had to get up into the upper 70's..............fusels.......?

So it would have to be at your place............I'll bring those red bottles that shoot that powdery white stuff.

Sure as **** didn't taste any fusels in last year's Utopias clone. I was gobsmacked at how little alcohol taste there was, especially in comparison to the "real" one.

Neither did I and thats why I am questioning the fermentation of this years version opposed to last years.

If its fermenting as high as I think it could be (68 is at least 76 and could have been higher) there is certainly the potential for fusels.

You and your freakin' prunes. No, I gotta make up the top-off batch first and have F-Dub and The Legend (Colby) taste it and sign off on the game plan.

Oh cool... thanks for the invite. appreciate that. That worked out well for me. And you're giving me guff 'cause I wanna host? People don't like us enough to invite us over. We have to bribe them with free food and beer so they'll come to our place.

You have an open invite, its every Thursday night and you know that.
Got my skee-matic all drawn up last night for the 240 kettle.
Two electricians and a third guy that builds electric components.
It was like a brewer being in a room with Caligione, Koch and Steel



Nice quiet brewing

Might just brew THE Baltic Sunday

Finally brewing my freakin' smoked ale this weekend. I'm reeeeeeeally pushing it if I want it ready by the comp.

it'll be ready.

wouldn't mind brewing both days.... we'll see.

I'm really tight on fermenter space unless I open up one of the big 30 gal conicals. Maybe I'll do a 15 of the Always Bet on Black

What kind of smoked ale? I'm so pissed about the efficiency on my "smoked old ale" from last weekend, I ****ed something up because I'm pretty sure I didn't even crack 60%. Forgot to add my damn pH buffer, which is usually good for about 10 efficiency points. Was shooting for 1075-ish, hoping for 1080, if my refractometer is right I think I got ~1055-ish. ****.

I think you assholes took the sugar out of my wort and put it in the damn utopias!
