It's been 2 months since I've been able to brew (pesky back surgery), but I'm doing up 22 gallons tomorrow. I've enlisted the help of a couple of buddies since I'm still not supposed to be lifting anything over 10#.

Recipies:

HopHed Pale Ale (11 gallons)

20.5# American 2-row 91.1%
2# Crystal 20L 8.89%

2 oz. Warrior 16.4% aa 60 min 52 IBU
2 oz. Hallertauer 6.00% aa 15 min 9.4 IBU
1 oz. Sterling 5.6% aa 10 min 3.2 IBU
1 oz Hallertauer 6.00% aa 5 min 1.9 IBU
1 oz Hallertauer 6.00% aa 2 min .8 IBU
1 tsp. Irish Moss

Danstar Nottingham dry yeast.

Target OG = 1.055
Target IBU = 67.3
Target SRM = 5.9

The last brew I did was 5 gallons of this (in the recipe database) and it's one of my favorites to date. I had to adjust the hop schedule a bit according to my inventory, but it should be very similar. Despite the IBU level being high for the BJCP style guidelines for an APA, this is a very balanced, clear brew.




Robust Porter: (11 gallons)

21.5# American 2-row 86%
1# Crystal 60L 4%
1# Chocolate Malt 4%
1# Special B 4%
.5# Black Patent 2%

2 oz. Amarillo Gold 10.0% aa 60 min 30.5 IBU
1 oz. Centennial 8.8% aa 15 min 6.7 IBU
1 oz. Willamette 3.8% aa 10 min 1.2 IBU
1 tsp. Irish Moss 15 min

WLP007 Dry English Ale

Target OG = 1.060
Target IBU = 38.3
Target SRM = 30.2

Tomorrow? Pshaw! Talk to me in about 3 hours---I'll be mashed in. Got my water waiting, my grain measured and ready to be crushed, and I'm going to the UPS distribution center in 30 minutes to pick up my new 60qt kettle.

22 gallons, though? That's hardcore. You have yourself a good time, and lemme know how it goes.

I haven't brewed anything in 5 weeks, but I can't attribute that to anything but having too much beer already. I'm really itching to get this off the ground.

Yeah...actually I got into the HK and 30 last night. Couldn't get a wifi signal so I couldn't check the symbols, and I could have sworn the pale ale was a wit.

Enjoy Sweet Baby Jesus...

I'm going to make some more bohemian pilsner tonight. I got a yeast cake just begging to be dumped on!

Glad to hear you're off the couch and brewing again!

I've had a few weeks off too but plan on brewing a Scottish 90/- tomorrow. Found a great looking recipe in the book SWMBO got for my birthday. Hopefully the washed yeast I pitched into a starter last night will take off soon, but I didn't see any signs of activity when I got up this morning. Cross your fingers for me!

A Wit? Seriously? How cold was it when you drank it? Were you already lit?

21DD is the Wit.

My Club's delayed Teach a Friend to Homebrew Day is tomorrow. First time brewing away from home. Got all my stuff packed up last night since the wife and I are going out tonight sans kid.

I need to rack my Pale, though, since I'm gonna save the cake to pitch when I get back from the party.
