6lb 2-row
4lb wheat
1lb molasses
1.5oz EKG @ 60

I've got a hefeweizen planned for tomorrow morning. I'm going to try out the brutus 20 2-pot technique and report back. I'll try to take some pics along the way.

A big beer weekend for me, too...

- Brewing an extract Engilsh IPA by myself on Saturday; and
- Having the team over Saturday night to help bottle 10 gallons of holiday porter, and brew 10 gallons of 'special recipe' IPA.

Between the three of us, after this weekend, we will have brewed 25 gallons of beer in less than a week! Cheers to that!

And cheers to everybody's weekend beer projects!

Tomorrow night I'm brewing a SMaSH Lager with some mystery hops of unknown origin that I bought from a witchcraft/herbal shop on eBay.

10# 2 row

3 oz "? Hops" @ 60
3 oz "? Hope" @ 20
3 oz "? Hope" @ 5


Have no idea what to expect from the hops, but I got em for $3.00/# or something close to that.

Wit went off well...shortest brew day yet, and I still juggled the youngin' for an hour or so during the mash, so I'm really pleased in that regard. I didn't get smashed, either, so that's probably the reason everything was smooth.

Finally got my bastard chiller to work since acquiring the Petsmart wort wizard. Well...it worked after I fixed the loose connection I didn't see for 20 minutes

Worst efficiency yet, though: 62%. But I'm not too worried...it's a Wit.

Also thanks to O'Flannagain as I used his method to make some clear candi sugar. Never let it solidify though, but I don't think that's a real issue.
