I'm brewing an American Dark Wheat using some of that Briess Caracrystal Wheat right now. Later going to do a small batch of amber ale to test my wife's theory that I'm wasting my time filtering brew water. Going to try hot water right out of the tap. Doing a 4 gal batch cause all my 6.5 gal fermenting buckets are busy...

Sounds good! I brewed a "traditional" Saison. I did a little research on the style and found out that there really was no characteristics to this style other than they were thought to have been around 3 to 3.5% ABV, and refreshing, I guess by what ever means to make them refreshing, like the use of spices. I didn't use anything to spice it up, I'm gonna rely on the Belgian Saison yeast to do that for me...We'll see how this turns out. I only used a 7 lb grain bill for 5.5 gallons and have a pretty aggressive fermentation today. I woke up this morning and it was foaming out of the airlock so I had to attach a blow off tube. Surprising for a beer with a lower OG.

Default Starting up again this week after 4 months

Hurricane Sandy put my brew cave underwater, I lost of brew and hardware . I have been brewing for about 6 years now. Just finished my 4 tap kegerator.
I was able to restore my rig with new hardware, once I do a couple of runs I am going to paint it. My 3 " Back Again" brews I got lined up are going to be a Dry Stout ( for St Patty's") , followed by a Ed Wort Haus bier and then a German Pils. I live in Seaford

Wow. Nice setups. Just brewed my second batch yesterday which was an Irish Red from NB for pattys day. Also put together my kegerator between shoveling trips. Be careful out there.
