Mashed another batch of my Strawberry Blonde yesterday. My efficiency was a bit low, so I ended up taking half the volume and doing a decoction with it, which brought me up to the 70% range. I have a barley crusher on the way so hopefully that'll help address future efficiency problems.

I made a nice Brown Ale yesterday. Used DB's awesome all grain technique. Hit efficiency around 67%. Not bad for all grain beer #3. Also managed to have absolutly no issues with the beer. No spills, no forgotten ingredients, no overestimate on boiloff, or underestimate on boiloff. It was just about perfect.

BTW, that makes 50 gallons of alcoholic beverages created in my apartment this year.

It's cold and rainy today but that's not discouraging me from brewing. Boil just started on another batch of March Brown Mild.

Gonna make a SMaSH using Franco-Belges Special Aromatic malt and Saphir hops. I just got a sack of this malt and want to try a SMaSH with it. Unfortunately it's a lager so I won't be able to taste it for a while. My first time using Wyeast Budvar Lager yeast too. I'm gonna make several lagers using this malt as a base and I'm calling it the 'Aromatica' series.

It's supposed to get down to 64 F tonight and not go much above 80 this whole weekend...after a week and a half of record highs. Sweet!

I am going to do my first mini-mash, a honey IPA with 5 varieties of hops and OG around 1.075. I know it is a little heavy for an ipa on the OG, but maybe that will be a good thing!

Good for you! (as I note the time stamp on your post and I sit at a computer). Friday always seems like a good day to play hookie from work and get a brew in before noon but i haven't done it yet.

I hope to brew an APA this weekend. It will be the first beer I repeat in my short brewing career. Last time, it was by far the best beer we have brewed so I am hoping for comparable results.
