Gravity test this morning - 1.072 down to 1.016.
I think the 90min mash and 90min boil have made the Vienna pop, cause its really dominant at the moment! I'm not complaining though!!

Planning a new version of the Chubby Highlander (refer to the Blog) on Waitangi Day!

Anyone got a good Red Ale or RyePA recipe?

nice, that pretty quick moving
I was looking at Terrapin Rye ale on here, looks like a good one. would prob have to sub out some hops, but still looks pretty good.
Man this brewing things tough work, I've got like 20 recipes but only a couple of fermenters, and not enough bottle and lots of beer to drink already, girlfirends not drinking so the stocks are building up, lol.
Goit an Imperial IPA next week, just a half batch, might do some half batches for a bit, BIAB.
I've also scored some citra too. So I'll make a half size of the Zombie Dust as well soon.

That's after a week. Had a slow starting fermentation but after about 3 days she took off!

I hear ya on the hard work thing - I've got 3 fermenters and at the moment probably about 12 empty crates, not to mention the 500ml/650ml craft bottles I've got lying around!

Good score on the Citra!!!

Just finished brewing.
23L of 1.060 APA in the fermenter, US Cascade & Sauvin, with a British Yeast. We'll be interesting to see how it turns out that's for sure!

Nice cruisy brew day!

I am running dreadfully low on beer containment devices. Well, thats not entirely true, I do have a few crates of swappa crate bottles left. I dont really like using them though. Too much! Okay when people are around, but yeah...

Might have to slow down the brewing for a bit. I need to bottle the 5ish L of stout that left in a keg to make way for my hop juice... I mean APA (mmm Simcoe and Amarillo). Its being dryhopped, but nearly ready. I was planning on bottling the rest of the Belgian amber keg, but dont think i have enough bottles.

I also have a dubbel fermenting away right now that doesnt have anywhere to go.

But, I want to keep brewing!!!

Might:
a) get another couple of kegs. They will have to sit outside the fridge and condition. No more room in the fridge
b) brew a couple of sour beers. They can sit around for... forever
c) do both!
