Back in the saddle!
I NEED to brew again. It's been 7 months! I'm at a standstill with the backyard projects until some parts arrive, so I decided that I'm going to get up and brew tomorrow! Since I don't have the brew rig completely set up, I'm going to do a very simple 6 gallon recipe, single infusion mash, and my first ever batch sparge.
The recipe is VERY loosely based on Ed's Haus Pale. I'm pulling the ingredients from stuff already on hand.
8 lbs 2-row
1 lb Biscuit
1/2 lb Caramunich
1 oz Amarillo
.5 oz Amarillo (30 mins)
.25 oz Amarillo (15 mins)
.25 oz Amarillo (5 mins)
Sweet jebus! I would never thought you to put off brewing!
I brewed this today- little to no color
Batch size: 5.0 gallons
63% 7 lb American Six-row Pale 33 1
18% 2lb Rye Malt 30 2
9% 1lb Flaked Corn (Maize) 40 1
9% 1lb American White Wheat 39 2
60 1oz Cascade pellet
10 1oz Summit pellet
1.051 (1.046 to 1.053)
1.012 (1.011 to 1.013)
Hit my numbers like a champ!
I've been in limbo/transit since late Feb, so my last batch was the 8-8-8. It's time to brew again!
Mike, looks like a nice, simple rye pale.
Oh thats right- you had a PCS right?
Ive been working my ass off at work too. Hopefully and the commander has kinda hinted at it, I will make MSgt in Feb.
Yuri_Rage - It is time to start filling the pipeline, home projects can take ohh. half the day, brewing MUST come first. Otherwise where is your motivation?
MikeFlynn74 - Congratulations, and thank you.
I hope you have a good session Yuri.
Lets see a brew of the set up in the new location.
Are you brewing on that slab?
Finally all doughed in, strike temp is good. Brewing on the very small back porch. You can see the very modest beginnings of a rather large deck in the background. Final recipe is exactly as listed above except that I'm using 1/2 oz of Warrior at 60 mins so I can save a little of my Amarillo stash. Should be a nice evening.
Go yuri go yuri! Its your birthday! Go yuri!
It's always nice to get the fever again eh? I haven't brewed in a while either as the temps have been too hot (I brew indoors).
Welcome back to the obsession.
Next time, do a Mogulus stream. It's what all the kids are up to these days :)
