jtakacs, got it, thanks...just need the last 3 now (Pint_destroyer, MasterJeem, Clanchief)

Yes, I think we should be thinking about shipping right after Thanksgiving in order to have plenty of time for packages to arrive before the big holiday shipping rush...

An update on Honey Ginger IPA

On my original brew day, which I posted a few pics of here, a friend stopped by and wanted to learn and help. A long story short, i was distracted and missed some times on my hop additions, scorched the LME in the bottom of the boil kettle, and was just not careful about my process and not really happy with the result. After a few tasting a few hydrometer samples, I decided that this is not a beer that I want to share with you all.

Never fear! I re-brewed, this time with a different recipe. I didn't want to order online and wait for delivery, and there is a new LHBS in Kingsport. Their ingredient selection is very good, but not endless like Northern Brewer. I was also inspired to use lighter malt by an episode of the Sunday Session about traditional IPA's. So aaaannnnnyyway I I've got something for you all to taste come December. It is hopped with 7 1/2 oz of East Kent Goldings, and sitting on 1 1/2 more ounces of hops, 2lbs of honey, and 3oz of candied ginger right now. Just had a little taste this morning to gauge the ginger flavor, and I am expecting to bottle either Tuesday or Wednesday. It measures in at 57 IBU, 7 SRM.

How is everyone else's beer? I'm getting really excited about this!

Would anyone be able to share a recipe for the caramel gingerbread quad? I would like to make this for myself (since I didn't get in on this sweet gig).

abbey weizen is in bottles conditioning as i type - happy to report that this went off without a hitch... hit all my numbers perfectly and let it rest on the yeast cake for quite a while. no secondary at all and for a wheat beer with a high percentage (40%) it came out pretty darn clear.

took my first taste yesterday and it has limited wheat influence because the yeast just dominates the beer... also a bit hoppier than i thought it would be.

i wanted it to be less "summery" and more "wintery" so it's a little darker than a standard wheat and less dry for sure... pretty well balanced imo and with carbonation (i shot for the low end of the scale for co2) it should be a really nice beer..

all grain, all saaz hops, wyeast abbey II yeast and fermented pretty cool - originally i was going to try to do it warmer than normal to get some esters out of it, but i wanted to control what i could...

i'll tell you what tho, i've never been more nervous about brewing a beer knowing 11 other people who do this are gonna be drinking it, but i think you'll all like it...

as with all of my beers (and most homebrews from what i can tell) this will need to be cold conditioned for at least a week before drinking it...
