Default What are you drinking on Halloween?

I am drinking an awesome red ale and cream stout.

I would also be drinking my pumpkin ale, BUT something went wrong and it did not carbonate! I have never had that happen before, and I have bottle conditioned several batches. I think I let it sit for too long before bottling maybe? (4weeks). I should've kegged it, but oh well!

I might have some of my weizenbock that came out tasting fine but a little weak alcohol-wise. They actually switched our trick or treating to Friday because of a bad storm rolling in this evening. I will be brewing a zombie dust and scaring little kiddies while the lady hands out candy.

hang in there Unionrdr. Mbobhat, is supposed to rain down here too starting at about 9, so the trick or treating should be early this year. I have never made a weizenbock. Sounds like it is bock style with wheat? Is it a lager or ale?

My Pumpkin Ale. My first as a matter of fact, and it came out perfect.

I actually might drink my pale ale instead of the stout as it is going to be a little warmer than expected down here tonight. 75-80. being so close to the gulf, it can be 50 one day and then the wind changes and it is 77 the next.

Ale since its a weizen

Mouthfeel: Medium-full to full body. A creamy sensation is typical, as is the warming sensation of substantial alcohol content. The presence of Munich and/or Vienna malts also provide an additional sense of richness and fullness. Moderate to high carbonation. Never hot or solventy.

Overall Impression: A strong, malty, fruity, wheat-based ale combining the best flavors of a dunkelweizen and the rich strength and body of a bock.

Mine missed the strength of a bock but has that creamy wheat laced head and banana and clove from yeast, and plum flavor from malt.
I used Jamil's recipe from BYO that I will try again to improve my efficiency.

Jamil says its the ultimate Halloween beer.
