Yep got some propane and brewed another batch today....with much better results.

Went from a dismal 63% eff yesterday to a much better 76% today. I brewed my first recipe from scratch today. I am very excited to see how my Pale Ale turns out!

Now its time to have a "few" homebrews Cheers!

I will be working on a small batch of either a malted amber ale or a Vienna lager tomorrow...both are extracts, but I have them laying around...so why not.

I did an oatmeal stout that clocked in @ 82% efficiency. If it survives fermentation (was distracted by car club members who brought some carburetors for me to restore, it sat chilled, and open to the elements whilst in the kettle), I will add coffee and cocoa to the secondary.

I brewed the Loon Lake Smoked Porter today...third all-grain batch and it went pretty dismally. Missed my OG by 9 points and had 3 boilovers. I seriously need to upgrade my mashing equipment - a nylon paint straining bag and 32Q pot really don't cut it for AG. Regardless, I imagine it'll still be decent - just a bit too bitter for the style.

Repeating my West Coast Pale Ale with some tweaks. Very small changes to the grain bill, ie slightly less crystal. Switched the hops from Magnum, Amarillo and Crystal hops with Amarillo in the lead role to just Crystal and Columbus with Crystal in the lead. The first version came out great, but it won't last long, so gotta get some more APA in the bottle to drink!

Just put my first batch of Ed Wort's Haus Pale Ale in the fermenter. The only change I made was to use Amarillo instead of Cascade.
OG came out at 1.050 which isn't TOO far off of Ed's target of 1.051
