Default Anyone brewing today? Oct. 29, 2006

I'm finally getting around to my hefeweizen that had been put on hold for a couple weeks. Just started the protein rest right now, first decoction shortly, thanks to the advice from the Baron von BeeGee a while back. This will be my second decoction mash.

I'm just waiting for my latest to finish. It's been slowly dropping a point or two a day and has another 3-4 to go. It's been a slow day, as my greyhounds don't understand about the time change.

You check your gravity every day? That seems like a lot but on the other hand if it brings you enjoyment then it is worth the loss of beer.

Sweet, a convert to the Church of Decoction. I think you'll like the results for a Hefeweizen.

I was going to brew Saturday but life intervened and I'm aiming for tomorrow. Just a boring ol' single infusion, however

Yeah, so far I've only done it on hefeweizen. I'm getting a fermentation fridge soon, so lagers are not far away. I used a really simple gain bill. I was going to have some flaked wheat in it but the LHBS was all out, so it's 6.5 lbs of wheat malt and 3.5 lbs of german pilsner.

I really liked the results in the Kaiser's lagers and I'm happy with my Oktoberfest. I might try just a straight up Pilsner with the undermodified malt I have.
