Picked up my ingredients today! I am brewing a bunch this weekend

Maibock, Helles, and a dark mild

Huzzah. I'll report back this time, I promise.

Well, perfect brewday. Wort production was perfect; I hit all my numbers dead on. Hopefully I have a nice, standard fermentation and I can get a real gauge for where this recipe is.

Three hour mash really adds to brewday, but I love those big decos!!!

Brewing a Maibock now.

So far so good. The Helles had an 11 day krausen period. Started to fall and is now resting at 63 for a few days to finish up and clean any diacetyl etc.

I am getting ansy. I want to get this thing chilled down and lagering. Same with the Maibock. I am really curious to see how this yeast works out (Wyeast 2000 Budvar).

Let's hear it! I need to get going on a Maiboch, and a Helles sounds good also.

But again with the Wyeast 2000 Budvar. I'll post my results in that thread.

Well so far, I am very unhappy with this yeast. I am hoping that it just needs a rather extended lagering period... but we will see. It is very sweet tasting, and fruity with a weird tangy flavor. I am pretty bummed at this point. I think the color is good, but the yeast flavors are screwing everything up... I'll give it another taste in another month.
