Default Tell me about your pipeline

I want to build up my pipeline and would like to hear what you guys and girls have coming up.

I want to know what beers are great 3,4,5, and even 6 months past brew date.

Cheers!

I'd love to help you out, but it's been a year and I still don't have a proper pipeline! Unless I count the coffee stout I don't care for. There's a dozen in my closet, but I bought a few beers today.

Pales and Wheats I keep one of each on tap with one of each in storage. Ipa, Amber, Rye IPA I keep 2 of each in storage with at least one of those on tap. I have a kegerator that holds four on tap with four in storage plus a chest cooler for long term and for darker beers and Barleywines that holds an additional 10 kegs.

I have irish red, a couple of creams, a couple of moose drool clones, a couple of porters. All told 12 or 14 cases worth ready to drink.

May not be a very large pipe line but it is months of drinking for me

Meh, not much of a pipeline, here. I have a Belgian golden strong bulk aging right now, but it'll be several months before it's ready. I do have a Yorkshire brown ale coming up (maybe next weekend).

As for beers that are good months later?

My imperial nut brown ale has really just come into its own. I bottled it at the end of January 2012.

I have a Belgian blonde ale (Revvy's Leffe clone) that I have just a handful of bottles left. Drank one a couple nights ago, and it was superb (and as clear as any commercial lager)... bottled it on April 28, 2012.

Heck, I have a regular brown ale (my first Yorkshire brown) that I brewed in January 2012, and it's as tasty as it's ever been.


If your beer relies on hop aroma, long term storage won't help it. Wheat beers don't age well, to my knowlege.

Malt forward beers, high ABV beers, can age a VERY long time and still be great - provided that your sanitation was solid, and you didn't oxidize the beer.

I have about 3 cases of finished ready to drink beer that includes a variety of 5-6 recent batches (I bottle), then I have 1 case of IPA that is still warm conditioning in the bottle, then I have 5 gals of Pale ready to be bottled plus 5 gals of new IPA that I brewed yesterday plus I have plans to brew a batch of Robust porter next weekend. I like to keep a loooong pipeline.

I finally have a stock of beer! I am just finishing up a mock schwarzbeir that was ok. I just put 5 gallon as each of a pale mild and Kolsch in the fridge and cellar. Need a little more time to conditioning. That's about 100 bottles. Just bottled up 50 some bottles of IPA on Friday. Also, brew 10 gallons of a Belgian pale ale yesterday (might give away half if its accepted in a brewers dinner). So, I've got about a dozen drinkable bottles, 100 just getting cold and ready, 50 ready in 3 weeks, and maybe another 100 ready in 6 weeks. Good to go for awhile. Also planning to brew a 5 gallon batch mid march. Bottling that much beer sucks!

Have about 10 bottles of a Pale Ale left, brewed last May. 40 bottles of Frank's Fishier Amber brewed in lat Jan. Currently conditioning a California Lager won't be ready till late May. Just brewed today a Speckled Heifer 5 Gal. As far as storing a beer for 6 months look into a Porter or a Stout. That's my next brew.

I would say I keep american Amber, Pale Ale/IPA, British Dark Mild and some sort of lager (helles/pilsner/oktoberfest, etc.) in a very steady rotation and then mix in the others as I see fit.


3-6 month beers - lagers, big porters/stouts, some belgians,etc.

6 months + sours, barleywines, some belgians, BIG beers
