"CCCA" (Chinook, Columbus, Cascade, Amarillo) Black IPA. Er... Cascadian Dark Ale... American Stout. Whatever. An opaque beer that I brewed.

Gah, I must be getting tipsified if I posted that. Sorry, it's been two weeks since we did the tasting and my head is still so dang big I don't know what to do with myself. On another, smaller, homebrew forum we set up a funky beer swap. I emailed Oldsock aka the Mad Fermentationist seeing if he'd be our 'celeb' taster. He didn't think he fit the bill, but suggested a few pros who might be receptive to participating, Shaun (and Dan, his assistant) included.

But seriously, while I'm bragging, Shaun Hill likes my homebrew saison! Mashed in a cooler and boiled in a keg on my back porch. I even had to entice a couple pigs back into the fence while I was brewing this one, don't get more farmhouse than that. Course they're both sausage and bacon now.

Anywho, sorry for the bragging.

60% pale malt
20% heritage (vienna/municish)
20% red (turkey) wheat
10% Turbinado

(yeah, that's 110%, if it doesn't make sense, malt % is weight and sugar is extract)

1.062 OG, fermented with ECY03, bottled at 1.005

Barley is 6 row, turkey is a heritage wheat. Grown in NC and malted by Brian & Brent at Riverbend in Asheville. Whoops, sub abruzzi rye for turkey wheat- this is a rye saison - I used wheat in the nelson dry hopped version.

90 minute boil. Bittered with a half + an eighth oz citra at 60, qtr + 8th ea citra and nelson at 15 and flameout, dry hopped oz citra 1 week.

It's a freaking good beer. I didn't adjust my water at all and because this is a pale beer, I've been told to make sure kettle pH is 5.2. Did that on the last batch of petite saison with lactic acid. Still in fermenter, but wow! Makes the difference from 'really, really good - did I brew this?' to 'wow, who snuck fancy beer into my fermenter?'
Kudos, thanks for the info, and cheers!

Oh yeah, the thread, I just cracked a Victory Yakima Glory, and dang that is a sneaky 8.7%

For someone who doesn't like a lot of tequila (had a bad, bad, bad experience with Cuervo Gold one time) I have quite a bit around the house. I guess I'll use it all eventually.

Schlafly pumpkin ale,Im ageing the other sixer that I bit off more than I could chew(bought too much) when It first came out last fall(or should I say last end of summer).In hopes of likeing it better aged. This end of the first sixer still tastes strongly like big red gum,very or too big on cinnamon, but it was in the fridge the whole time also. Still makes for a nice malty winter-spice beer though. Nice and warming,sweet beer treat.

Fullers London Pride. Had never seen it in a can until Saturday, much less for the killer deal of 4.99/sixer, at TJs
