The burner gets lit at 10AM tomorrow for a Bavarian Hefe AG. Going to try out my first no-chill, mostly out of necessity because my plate chiller isn't here yet and my immersion chiller won't fit far enough into the 15 gal Boilermaker for a 5 gal batch.

Brewed my version of Papazian's Cherries in the Snow yesterday and now it's bubbling like crazy in my closet.

Did my 1st BIAB yesterday, and it was fun! Definitely a good way to squeeze in a small batch real quick! Did the initial heating, mashing, sparging on my stove, then it went out to a single burner in the garage. It was nice to not have to lug out my keggles, mlt, stand etc. I really need to get that thing on wheels, or find a stationary spot, where I can just fire them up!

3.25g of All Citra APA - 1.049 - 5.6 SRM - 44IBUs

After that I did some taste testing on my Slick Rick (OEO Clone) to see what kind of bourbon I wanted to use. All I really had on hand was Jim Beam, but it didn't really compliment the burnt-oily(kind of odd-but good-and I think the roasted barley will mellow more) flavor of the Slick Rick. So I tried some Balvenie Scotch that I had. WOW! That was the ticket! It was very complimentary to the flavor and aroma, which was pretty impressive to me, so I went ahead and threw 1oz of Oak Cubes in a growler, with a chopped up vanilla bean and covered in Balvenie!! Going to let it sit for a week or 2, then rack on top of it! I'm getting excited again for this batch!

Speaking of...does anybody ever use Scotch for their Porters/Old Ales? I don't know if a regular porter would taste as good with it, but the odd flavor of this really went well!
Fermenting/Conditioning: Casc/Cent APA, Hoppy Birthday Amarillo/Simcoe IPA(6g American/5g Belgian), Chappist Belgian Dubbel
Bottled/Kegged: Red Rye IPA, Wesside Trip(Westmalle Tripel clone), ESB, Lil Trap (4% Trappist Starter Batch), Robust (Pumpkin) Porter, 3% Little Hopper, "Slick Rick" Old Engine Oil Clone(oaked w/ vanilla and balvenie scotch), Imperial RyePA,
On Deck: Quad, Belgian IPA, Orfy's Mild, Scotch Ale

10 minutes into the boil of a Pilsen SmAsh.

11 Lb Rahr Pilsen, batch sparge
.5 oz Hallataur 60 Minutes
.5 oz Hallataur 15 minutes.

Will ferment on a Notty yeast cake in carboy.

It's really light in color, almost too light. But it's the start of the boil. Hopefully a good "lawnmower beer".

A simple beer to try out my newly constructed electric keggle. No fancy controls, just plugged into a 240 outlet and manually controlled.
Primary 1: Empty
Primary 2: Empty
Keg 1: Empty
Keg 2: Drinking Ed Wort's Apfelwein 3.5.10
Keg 3: Empty
Keg 4: Empty
Keg 5: Empty
