Brewed a RIS yesterday afternoon.

5.25 gallons coming in at 1.091. Bubbling away happily at 62 degrees.

Cant wait for this bad boy to come around in a few months or so.

(Good thing I had previously brewed an Alt, a stout, and a pilsner to see me through my recovery!)

Although a bit sore, it felt great to start brewing again! The moment I doughed in for my porter recipe, and that wonderfully malty smell of the mash hit my nose, I felt "back in the game."

Brewing is awesome therapy. Cheers.
Glad you're ok man!

I brewed an English IPA yesterday, great brew, all the numbers fell in line, fermenting like crazy
My Brother brewed a stout, everything looked great, but the OG came out at 1.070 as opposed to the 1.060, we double checked everything, and couldn't figure out what happened there, so we just pitched a ton of yeast

I'm brewing a killer Honey Wheat as I type! It's been about a year since I brewed this but If history repeats itself it should be a winner!

Just putting this Oatmeal Brown Ale in the primary. All numbers are spot on, love when that happens!

Brewed a 1.065 Old Ale, and brewed a 1.114 Russian Imperial Stout. (Intended 1.098 but got 76% efficiency when I expected 70%... And 1/4 gallon less volume).



[adjusted it's 1.114]

Brewed a Surly FURIOUS clone this weekend. I didn't buy a kit, I just wrote down the ingredients from the northern brewer site and went to my local brew shop. It started making bubbles in my blow off bucket in about 6 hours. The wort from my gravity tasted unbelievable(1.071). It's only my third batch as a new brewer. Can't wait for this one.

Just Brew It!

Primary: Furious clone
Primary: Apple wine
Secondary: hopped up American Ale
Bottled: Magellan IPA
