The offer to come over and brew one day is still there. I'm closing on my house around the end of the month so mid feb ill be back up brewing again. Ill message you and we can make something one day for sure. Maybe a saison or something.
The grain bill was nice, and I am a fan of centennial, so I figured why not? I was up there Saturday as well...from 10:45 till around 12:30..I got this recipe and the Columbian Mules Foot, which I am thinking I need to do a starter for, but am unsure.

Thanks for the offer on brewing, I'll be looking forward to it. The wife and I took a hiatus from house shopping, but we are about to jump back in the game.

I agree with you that HopCity has a small homebrew dept...and the prices aren't that great, either. From what I have read about the classes is that they are nothing special. So, I'll probably just jump on into it soon.

Must have just missed ya. I was there later, like 3:30 or 4 I think it was.

The Columbian Mules foot is a good recipe. I used it as a base, and changed a few grains and made it a bit bigger for an Imperial Stout.. Haven't drank much of it yet, it's been sitting around since early October. It's a tad boozy at 11.5% right now.. hah!

If you bought the complete recipe, I'm thinking that he included 2 smack packs of yeast.. Want to say it's the irish ale yeast perhaps. If not, then you'll need a starter for it.

Wow! 11.5% that's a nice beer for a bad day, or a celebration! I did buy the entire recipe, and received (2) smack packs, thanks for letting me know indont need a starter. I am going to secondary mine for a month, if possible. I actually had to buy this one 2x, as I had my carboy break while I was taking to the fermentation area (spare bathroom)! Doug was an awesome guy and and sold it to me for 1/2 price!

Thanks again for all the help and advice...it really helps with my "dumbass" moments.

Have fun with it. I might get the recipe and do it as intended next time instead of changing it up. I love a good porter and it's a good recipe. It needs some age on it though, so brew it, give it 3-4 weeks, and then secondary it for another month. If you bottle, then it'll be 3 months old before you get to it which will be a good amount of time I think!

Heck yeah, man! I'm definitlely going to sit on it. I don't plan on trying it until May or June. Stouts and porters are among my favorites, and I enjoy 'em year round. I'm planning on using 8 o'clock coffee but wondering if a bolder blend, or an espresso blend in hopes that it might give it a little more coffee in the nose and flavor upfront.

I stopped off at Fresh Market in PTC on my way home and went in and grabbed some fresh whole beans and ground them for the brew there. Used some good coffee and thought it was worth it.

Sounds like a plan...I didn't think of grinding fresh in store

Well, the krausen has been growing steadily since yesterday, and I would say the yeasties are chugging along! I'm about to attach a blow off tube...

I'd give it a tube, and check the temp. I haven't had the BRY-97 go that wild from the couple of beers I've made with it.. They are all in the 1.058-1.070 gravity range too.

Just put the tube on about 30 min ago. I pitched (2) packets into 1.069 OG. The temp is still holding at 62 per the femometer. I wasn't expecting it to get this crazy!
