For those who know the SWMBO has been a PIMA for 2 weeks (ok, not really, but you know) Anyway, she's outta here next week for 10 days for a vacation she planned eons ago....which means A) no SWMBO B) I can fill my empty carboys!

Which brings me here, I'll have the following vessels to use:

2 6.5 gallon carboys
1 6 gallon better bottle
1 5 gallon carboy

One of my 5 gallon carboys has some Apfelwein chillin' like a villan, and I think I'll use the 6 gallon better bottle for some Apfelwein.

I was also thinking that I could make something that didn't need a secondary, like another Hefe or something so I could make best use of my vessels.

I've been toying around with the idea of BierMuncher's SNPA in extract, but I can't do a boil that big! I have a 3 gallon brew pot.

4 brews in the next 2 weeks, not even, throw some ish out there. And of course I'll be making starters for all, need another stir rod though

Fill them all with Apfelwein. You'll be done in under an hour.

stop being a smart ass and answer my question in your Apfelwein thread

Oh, and thanks for planting the seed about 26 gallons of Apfelwein ready for the holidays!

I'm planning the same thing in about 6 weeks. I'm so eager for the time to come. I've got it all planned out. Gonna do a Trappist style ale, dark, similar to rochefort 10. Following that with a traditional hefe so I have something to drink and can empty a carboy for brewing a couple weeks later, a pumpkin spice for the fall/winter and haven't decided on the 4th. Either a pale ale or a stout.

Good times for wheats. Get ready for the cooler weather too with something dark maybe?

98EXL, you should do my Rochefort 10 clone. It turned out pretty damn close to the real thang. It'll be awhile before it's ready to drink, but if you do it now, it'll be ready for fall.

You should also try my Double IPA recipe.
