My Two Hearted Ale clone is 20min into the boil as I type.Drinking the original as well. Also bottled an IIPA with massive amounts of cascade & falconares flight as the hops, a super hopped Warrior IIPA & racked 5gal of Wheat onto 3lbs of fresh cranberries. Been a great weekend.

I understand your thoughts regarding cost of dry yeast, but S-05 is bulletproof!!

Brewed a breakfast stout Saturday. Used real espresso and cocoa powder.

1.062 OG, 35 or so ibu's and S-05. Started bubbling and churning like crazy this morning.

Hope it turns out good. First all grain stout I've done and first time I've added stuff to a brew. Perhaps a bit ambitious building my own recipe without experience brewing the style, but the wort was amazing and every other recipe I've done has turned out well enough.

Yeah, I know, but I did not have any. I used the last 3 packets that were over 1 year expired. They did make good beer.

Yah know i was thinking of taking a break because i ran out of base malt anyway but still have specialty,crystal malts probably enough to make at least a dozen more. I mainly brew organic but cost getting it sent from Cali have made me hesitate, i do like experimenting.I just dont like always using the same base malt.I believe there are only a few very good organic beers,i think maybe i just may have made one of them accidentally luckily becaause commercially they have never matched up to some of the best beers out there.Also organic does not have a good name for best beers.
I will probably get some base malts i have never tried and make a bunch of single hop ipa's to finish up all of my crystal malt i overpurchased. I dont want to stop and think of how im just letting my crystal malts stale.Also you cannot get all hops oranically and overall ive been somewhat disapointed in the hops organic or not that i got. I think its weird that you dont know the age of your hops when you buy them. I want some 2011? Will i get them?Doubt it!
Im also thinking about trying a cider,i just bought some and dont recall really ever even trying them and they are pretty good. Woodchuck has some decent ones. I think they have english beer esters with a solid apple taste with mild tartness that gives that hop like finish but making it so good.
Until then i will seek out new beer that mainley is always better than mine and inspiring.Yes there is a reason most beer is in a bottle commercially ,because its good.Untill then i will try to make beer this good but im not going to stop enjoying these awesome beers,unless i can make them better.

Brewed up an American Brown Ale, Sweet Stout, Imperial Stout, and a smaller stout off of the runnings of the IS. 4 brews in one afternoon! So there were no hops left for the little stout as there was not enough foresight for that... so me and a fellow brewer had to kill off one of the kegs that I had put an ounce of keg hops into to have something to bitter with. Also stole the aroma hops from a previous batch from the day. So now we have a citra / willamette stout. Don't really care if its great or not because its all from recycled stuff!

I brewed up a killer batch of winter ale I am calling "Merry Freakin Christmas Ale". It is an all grain 5 gallon batch, my OG was 1.070 and should finish with about 7.25% abv and 70 IBU using Amarillo and chinook hops; toasty red color. Can't wait to try it. Damn I love brewing beer!!!!!

Prost
