Five gallons of "May Wii Hefa Wizen" is on the boil right now. My own partial mash recipe.

Gearing up for some warmer Oregon days....if they'll ever get here!

Just finished brewing my premium style lager. AG, with pils, 2-row and a little flaked wheat, Saaz and S-23, 1.055 OG.

Cleaned up the mess, it's Miller Time.

NOT.

It's "Hefe Time"!

Brewed 5 gallons of a slightly adjusted BigKahuna's Pirate Ale. I used 7# DME instead of 7.5# LME and used crystal 90. I'm calling it "Rainy Day Rum Beer" cause it was an overall very wet day in the Garden State today.

7lbs Dark DME
# Roasted Barley grain
3/4# Black Patent Malt
# Crystal 90 Malt
# Torified Wheat

1 1/2 oz Northern Boiling Hops

Steeped grains for 30 minutes @ 165-168F, Looked real nice. Coloring was dark with a reddish overtone to it. Boiled for about 75 minutes (was multi-tasking). Pitched Safale US-05 for the first time. Seems to be happy, already starting to form krausen. I will rack onto coconut after about 3 weeks or so.
I'm thinking I'll use Appleton rum, but maybe Sailor Jerry's for a little extra kick. I measured my gravity, but was sidetracked and hadn't mixed in the top off water so it was an inaccurate reading. I'm over it though. All in all a relaxed brew day that was mostly smooth. Up next: BierMuncher's Blue Balls Belgian Wit PM for a quick turnaround spring brew!

I brewed 5 gallons of IPA. About 15-20 of us from the local club had a big party and all brewed. It was a lot of fun, great food, GREAT beer, and a wonderful learning experience getting to see how everyone's techniques differed.

"Eh, Rye Not", brew was smoothest/best brew day to date. Drank several 22oz "samples" from my fresh keg of BM's Black pepper Wit (which is being made again soon) then had a buddy pick me up (no way I was figuring out a door lock let a lone a gas pedal) and off we went for some Disc Golf. Friggin Great Saturday.

10 gal of Oktoberfest yesterday. The gravity was four points off which can be attributed to a failure in my mill hopper and losing about 1 lb of malt to the very dirty basement floor. I really need to clean up the area under my mill. Other than that it went smoothly.

I took a few samples of that Wit too. Pretty darn good for being less than 3 weeks old. I had the pressure at 18psi and I am going to turn it down, it is getting close to tasting like soda that high. I have read on here about having Wit at a higher psi but not sure if I am a fan of that.

I'll be mixing up the EdWort's Apfelwein that I wasn't able to do last weekend. Bottling an American Pale Ale which I have high hopes for and brewing a Belgian White.
