I've brewed two stouts in the last month, one an oatmeal stout and the other a sweet stout. I'm brewing my first IPA in a very long while next weekend, which I am very excited about. I've been on a malt kick for the last six months, but I am start to get the hop itch again. I think I'm beer bi-polar and I cycle every 6 months to a year.

Yoopers dead guy sounds good, I might have to add that to the list!

I made my first Oktoberfest/Marzen. I made it twice, to be exact. Also a basic pale ale and an attempt at a Kolsch.

Sadly, only my first Oktoberfest turned out (and I'm VERY pleased with it). All three of the other batches got infected. Know anybody that needs 60+L of malt vinegar? <cry>

What do you think happened? Was your process different?

No, I didn't change anything in my process. I think it was caused by a bad combination of a 3 year old plastic primary bucket that's starting to get pretty badly scratched up inside, a reused yeast that I was kind of careless while washing, and I also didn't give myself enough time to propagate a proper starter.

At least, I hope one of those things are the problem. I have one more chance to brew before winter hits, and for that session I'm going to be a sanitization nazi, use my good bucket, and use a brand new yeast.

If that doesn't fix the problem, I'll be happy to call brewing quits for the winter.

How much coffee did you add?

I added 20 oz of cold steeped coffee at the end of the boil.

I suggest using some coffee beans to dry hop (dry bean?) with as well. You could soak them in your favorite alcohol before using. You wont want to leave it for it to long, but a couple of days will give it a good aroma.

I did it with a black ipa that I made and it turned out delightful. Sat 1 gallon of the beer on oak chips and beans for 3 days and then bottled.
