Default New years day brewing.

I brewed my 3rd all grain batch today. Irish red. 6 gallons. :-) this was a great way to get the year started. Anyone else not too hung over to brew? If you brewed new years day, what kind of beer and why? I am a noob experimenting with different styles.

I'm not brewing today because, well, it's my birthday. Too much birthday stuff to do and enjoy to even think about slipping in a brew day. I will be brewing this weekend though. Leaning towards another English Bitter, but if not I'm going to finally make that Amber Bock clone I've been wanting to do for a while.

Gl with your NYs brew!

Brewed a full bodied West Coast IPA today. I like IPAs and when it gets cold, a full bodied brew has more of a warming effect. Also, after the busy holidays, my supply line was lagging.

Have a Happy and Prosperous New Year.

I brewed a recipe from BierMuncher, one of the mods here called Captain Hooked on Bitters. It's a Red Hook ESB clone. Despite problems hitting my mash temp, every thing went pretty well. Look forward to tasting this in about 6-7 weeks.

Nice pic. I was standing in my garage, in the cold, in a very similar fashion. I cant believe how much more propane I used in the cold weather. I want to do an ESB next.

I brewed "Happy Brew Years NWPA" I will be transferring tomorrow am into the secondary with an ounce of hops for dry hopping. Should be delicious.
