Next weekends think I am going to brew my Oktoberfest recipe. I'm finishing up my fridge controller, which will give me the ferment temps I need.

Just pitched the yeast on an IPA with Magnum for bittering and Ahtanum/Nelson Sauvin for flavor and aroma.

I made really big black ale. I had an old partial mash kit for european bock. Add 1lb of extra dark DME 1lb of extra golden DME. Picked up some fresh (er) hops. 1oz of Cluster 2 oz of pallisade 1/2 oz of Sterling and pitched some white labs california ale.

O.G. 1.081 and fermentation took off like a rocket last night making my basement smell yeasty, hoppy delicious.

Going to use a cream ale kit I got for a gift last year tomorrow and then I can focus more on making mead with all of my beer ingredient out of the way.

First beer of the season. Not sure how everyone else does it, but my brewing calendar starts with NFL preseason and ends when the NBA playoffs start. Probably a function of both the cool weather and needing tasty brews during game day. Anyway, I digress.....

Beer #1 this year is a straight forward Belgian Triple. Made a 1 quart starter with 5 oz of DME and some Saaz pellets. The yeast for this the Wyeast Trappist High Gravity. This stuff is insane. Literally had fermentation within the first hour and a half.

As for grain bill, like I said pretty straight forward

10 lbs belgian pilsner malt
8oz crystal 20L
8oz Aromatic malt

2 lbs clear candi sugar
1lb table sugar

I realized that my pre oil gravity was too low (after adding the candi sugar) so I had to add the table sugar to the boil. Consequently I had more wort left over than usual, so perhaps my boil off rate is too high, causing me to over sparge.

Mashed at 148 for 75 minutes with a teaspoon of calcium chloride to help with pH. Boiled for 75 minutes. Three hops additions. 1 oz tettnager at 60 min, 1oz Saaz at 30, & 1oz Saaz at 8.

Well today is the last day of my 'weekend' and I'm brewing so I guess that counts.

Brewing an improvised IPA which will be dry hopped with my friend's homegrown Cascades and possibly some of his Nugget also.

I got an Austin Homebrew all grain kit ready for the kettle this weekend! Session IPA should be first entirely kegged batch since the reboot of the brewing hobby.
