I NEED to brew again. It's been 7 months! I'm at a standstill with the backyard projects until some parts arrive, so I decided that I'm going to get up and brew tomorrow! Since I don't have the brew rig completely set up, I'm going to do a very simple 6 gallon recipe, single infusion mash, and my first ever batch sparge.

The recipe is VERY loosely based on Ed's Haus Pale. I'm pulling the ingredients from stuff already on hand.

8 lbs 2-row
1 lb Biscuit
1/2 lb Caramunich
1 oz Amarillo
.5 oz Amarillo (30 mins)
.25 oz Amarillo (15 mins)
.25 oz Amarillo (5 mins)
Whirfloc
US-05

I've been in limbo/transit since late Feb, so my last batch was the 8-8-8. It's time to brew again!

Mike, looks like a nice, simple rye pale.

Yuri_Rage - It is time to start filling the pipeline, home projects can take ohh. half the day, brewing MUST come first. Otherwise where is your motivation?

MikeFlynn74 - Congratulations, and thank you.

Finally all doughed in, strike temp is good. Brewing on the very small back porch. You can see the very modest beginnings of a rather large deck in the background. Final recipe is exactly as listed above except that I'm using 1/2 oz of Warrior at 60 mins so I can save a little of my Amarillo stash. Should be a nice evening.

It's always nice to get the fever again eh? I haven't brewed in a while either as the temps have been too hot (I brew indoors).

Welcome back to the obsession.

Next time, do a Mogulus stream. It's what all the kids are up to these days
