  • Posted in thread: Freshly dumped whiskey barrel- how long ? on 12-15-2012 at 04:48 PM
    I would not put a ryePA into a fresh whiskey barrel as the first brew to go in there. i would
    brew something bigger and bolder, because the barrel is going to add substantial oak and
    bourbon flavors t...

    Swmbo is a total beer nerd, and loves helping brew the beer and drink the beer. She likes going
    to the LHBS; she likes going to breweries and bottle releases. I make most of the money and
    make sure sh...

    A little update 2 months later. I added 1.5lbs of dextrose over 2 additions. This WLP099 is a
    beast. Too much of a beast, much more of a beast than I was expecting. It fermented all the way
    down to 1....

  • Posted in thread: My Beer Running Filled Weekend Recap on 10-23-2012 at 05:43 PM

    After a week, the S-05 has eaten this beast down to about 1.044 and its still slowly
    fermenting. I have a gallon starter of wlp099 to decant and pitch tonight as well as the first

    Lambics go through some pretty weird phases. Some of them I would describe the odor as fruity
    gross vomit, but it always passes and ends up delicious after a year or two :)

    I brewed it today, what a long session. I mashed 148 degrees for 2 hours, then lautered and
    single batch sparged slowly to collect 8 gallons. After a 90 minute boil, 5.5 Gallon OG was
    1.125. I will st...

    Here's what i think I'm going to try as the base beer. I will try to mash at a low temp for 2
    hours, I'm using 1.5 lbs of dextrose, and I'll finish it off with WLP099 in an attempt to get
    it down to t...
