I just started a beer that will be a Specialty/Wood-aged beer when all is said and done.

I used something new I found - HICKORY syrup. I've seen a ton of Maple syrup added beers, but thought the Hickory would be a nice , nice change. The hope was to find some hickory wood to add...but at this stage all I have are a few different light and medium toasted OAK. Was hoping for Hickory rather than Oak. Oh well.

Starting OG was 1.063. Happy with that.

I think I will get a chance to brew my Altbier either Friday afternoon or Saturday morning. I've only made it once before but it was one of my best. I really want to get it in the fermenter since I can't keg anymore. I'd love to be drinking this in a month, but looks like it'll be closer to the beginning of November.

If you just brewed it, you have 3-4 weeks, go and find some Hickory to throw in the secondary!

I'm out of the game for a couple weeks until my next batch is ready to keg, currently at capacity.

Wife and I are brewing our IPA and possibly (hopefully) finally our Christmas Barleywine. OG 1.116 before adding the pumpkin pie filling!

I need to bottle more before I brew again. That and get friends to come over and drink more now that I have quite a variety. I don't drink enough to brew so often so I'm using my budgeted funds to get some new gear and supplies.

I'm brewing an AG version of one of the White House beers this weekend...was supposed to make my starter tonight, but could not...must do so tomorrow or in the morning before work!

The Barleywine sounds interesting, snaps10!
