I've got my stout going right now. Heating up the mash water. It's going to be a straight forward Dry Stout ~ 1.050

Bottling my IPA in the morning, then making a straightforward, modest-gravity (~1048) pale ale. Want something real drinkable ready for March Madness. Hopping with Northern Brewer and Cascade, the combo Walker uses in his kick-ass IPA. Couple pounds of Vienna and some crystal 20, pretty straighforward grain bill as well.

Sounds good. My stout is also very similar to a Walker brew. We both formulated stout recipes sometime a couple months ago. I think his was only 2-row, roasted barley and a little flaked barley, and using only EKG hops. Mine is using a little chocolate malt as well, but that's it.

I wonder if that's the one that Dude told me to make once (and that I foolishly DIDN'T).

I hurt my back, but if I can manage to wrangle the equipment upstairs, I'm going to try a Belgian White. I have the starter done and in the fridge now. Getting old sucks, but getting decrepid is the absolute pits.

I'm going to do a California Common. It's nice and cool here and should not be to much work to keep it in the high 50's.

This is the time that I did a CA Common last year here in LA. Right now my garage is saying 45 and we might have record lows tonight...again for LA.

Looks like nothing unless I can make my banana beer in the house. My brew area on the patio is still under about 2 feet of snow.

I just racked my belgian over during the mash. FG is about 1.014! That's with a starting gravity of 1.082!!! Almost 82% attenuation! That's with a lb. of candi sugar syrup. 9.0% abv. It's going to need to age. Good thing it's Christmas Gifts 07.
