My baby turned one week old last night. I took a peek through the airlock hole and the krausen's fallen (and it can't get up) so things seem to be on schedule. I'm going to bottle my Apfelwein over the weekend and then transfer this one to secondary next tuesday at the 2 week mark. I looks damn good. I'll be using a better bottle for secondary, so I can actually have a pic of the beer.

And here I thought you were intentionally hiding the contents of the primary when you took that first pic. (which I thought was funny) Good luck. I am right now looking at AHS and B3 to try to put together some stuff that I need without the Dragon's Wrath from SWMBO.

My SWMBO has discovered she really likes the wine kits. So I get off the hook easily now.

Racked to secondary tonight. So far so good!



2 weeks old. SG is at 1.010. Smells FANTASTIC. Tastes... green, but nothing bad I could detect. Just like flat green beer.

Mine... well ... She's not much for all this home brewing. I couldn't bribe her with a wine kit if I tried. I even offered to make her some apfelwein, she said no thanks!! Hey Ches nice looking brew so far. When are you gonna let us see the recipe?

Alrighty... I was going to wait until tasting, but since it's pretty much too late for anyone to talk me into changing my beer, I'll post it. Here it is

BBD Brown Biscuit

6.5 lbs Amber LME
1lb Special B
.5 lb Biscuit
.5 lb 6-row
1 oz Fuggles at 45min
1 oz Fuggles at 10min

That's it. Kept it simple. Time for folks to pick it apart. heheh

Congrats - it looks great!
Did you do a full boil or partial boil? Did you steep the grains or Partial Mash them? What was the AA% on your hops?
I'm only asking because this looks like a great inside brew for when the snow flies and my AG equipment and outdoor brewing are shut down for the winter. I'd like to plug it into beersmith to get some data.
Sometimes (most times in my experience) the simplest recipes make the most delicious beer!

Partial boil and a partial mash in the oven. Hops were 4.4% IIRC.

I'm assuming a 5 gallon batch with a 3 gallon boil, Where did your OG come in at? Right now, using a 50% efficiency for the Partial Mash beersmith is telling me your OG should have been 1.061 and the IBU's at 12. I have also classed this as an American Brown.
Again this is probably why you were averse to posting the recipe in the first place. Too much techno-geek beer speak instead of RDWHAHB. Let me know if I ask too many questions.
