I have a "forced" day off tomorrow so decided I throw down another 10 gallon batch of Edwort's Robust Porter. This will be the 4th time I've brewed this but I always add vanilla beans to it. I'm a sucker for Vanilla Porter, especially in the winter. I just hope the LHBS has all the ingredients I don't have. Cascade has been impossible to find. Not sure if it's back yet or not. If I can't get Northern Brewer and Cascade I may try to sub it with Chinook. Saaz if all else fails.

I have been wanting to make that as well. Who here has? Is it a good winter beer?

sorry i missed this! still have the smoked malt. i ended up making a quasi Munchener Helles, 2-row, vienna, honey, tettnang, wlp810.

the first beer you suggested seems light in color and smoke. have you had this or had something in mind?

imade one this year. if you read the style guidelines and have software, you can come up with something good. keys tend to be water, english hops, and a nice dark color without too much malt character

Going to be adding cocoa nibs to secondary and if I want even more chocolate in the final product (after tasting it at that point) I'll add some home made chocolate vodka tincture to the keg!

Also kegged 10 gallons of IPA brewed exclusively with Riwaka and Moetuka hops from New Zealand today. Decided to add 4oz of Galaxy to the one corny keg. Might do something with the other one as I've finally come to the conclusion that I simply don't like Riwaka hops.
weird. so many peeps seem to like Riwaka. in fact, a brewery in Des Moines just made a "Riwakan Dead"

I took advantage of the Remembrance Day stat holiday for federal government workers here in Canada, and the beautiful 20-degree weather we had this weekend, and held a 2-day quadruple-batch brewing marathon.

On Sunday, I brewed a Bohemian Pilsner Lager with Wyeast Czech Pils yeast I started 2 weeks ago, and an Irish Red Ale with some Wyeast Irish Ale yeast I harvested from a Dry Irish Stout I just kegged on Thursday.

On Monday, I brewed an American Pale Ale and an IPA, both featuring Zythos hops.

It was surprisingly exhausting. By last night, after everything had been sealed up and all the equipment cleaned, I was physically drained. My knuckles are raw and sore from soaking in so much PBW and Star-San all weekend. I like having a full pipeline, and I'll probably do double-brew days again in the future, but I don't think I'll do two in a row again.

We plan on doing a double brew day on Saturday.

5-6 gallons of Lil Sparky's Nut Brown (2nd time)

and either

Citra Pale or Winter Warmer (depending on if the LHBS gets Citra in or not)
