Brewing a "dice-hopped" IPA on Sunday. Doing whole30 so this is the 1st time I will not be drinking when brewing. I shall drink vicariously through all of you!

Nice! That's what I'm brewing too. My recipe is pretty similar to Rogue's Shakespeare. Looking forward to it!

Just did the second step on two starters, wlp011 is a 2L starter and the other is 1.5L of wlp090. Going to pitch tomorrow this time on an RIS then an American stout, partigyled from a 23# grain bill.

The brew day will tax me like no other I've ever had. Can't wait!

I'm hoping to find the time to brew a Four Peaks Kiltlifter clone that was posted in 2011 by scottland using Safale US-04. I intended to use WLP007, but life got in the way and I never made it to the LHBS to get the yeast to make a starter. Kiltlifter is one of my favorite beers

Whew! Just finished cleaning up and finally sat my tired rump down after a partigyle brew session. It was a bit hotter than I hoped for outdoors so I'm a bit more drained than my mash tun. I have high hopes for both these beers, RIS and American stout. I will pitch later tonight after the Gamecocks take on Auburn... Maybe I'll need a big stout by the end of the game. Lol

I brewed last night but wasn`t sure I was going to be able to right up until the last minute.

Cooper`s OS Stout Kit
5 lbs CDN 2 Row
.75 lbs Chocolate Malt
.25 lbs Crystal 120L
8 oz Hershey`s Unsweetened Cocoa powder
14 oz lactose
14gr Cooper`s Ale yeast rehydrated
0.75 chocolate extract (bottling)

One hour mash for all the grains. One hour boil adding the cocoa powder and lactose at 15 minutes left. The stout kit was added at flameout. No hop additions on this one. Bitterness will come from the stout kit (and cocoa powder maybe). I topped the fermenter up to 23.5 litre (over shot a little) and the OG came in at 1.062. It`s sitting in my fermentation chamber at 18C and the krausen is just now starting to form (about 14 hours since pitching the yeast). I intend to add about 0.75oz of chocolate extract at bottling.

I`m going to call this one my Cooper`s Triple Chocolate Milk Stout.

I guess Oxy Clean is as easy to get as anything else. That said, I was thinking....what if I scrubbed everything out "clean" and then sanitized by swishing around and/or wiping all the potentially contaminated items with Vodka or Everclear several times (in order to increase exposure time). Alcohol is a pretty effective sanitizer and it is not a chemical that we are avoiding ingesting. it is expensive I suppose but I am not advocating total immersion in vodka...just liberally and thoroughly wiping everything with it.

Any thoughts on this out there?


Ooops...wrong thread

Well, didn't squeeze it in over the weekend, but I'm doing a little 3 gallon experiment with some Cascade hops I picked on two occaisons from a friend's garden. It's going to be an American Amber, partial mash/extract. 1/2 oz fresh hops that were vac sealed and frozen in a jar added at the beginning of a 30 minute boil, and 1 oz that was picked later when the cones were browning on the bines and I finished drying and vac sealed in bags...at 15 minutes. Another dried ounce for dry hop. The hops weren't handled as they should have been, but I want to see how a small batch turns out. Pitching White Labs East Coast Ale yeast...and crossing my fingers!

Edit: I'm putting the two hop additions to the boil in nylon bags to easily remove them before pitching the yeast. The frozen ones will not be thawed before adding them to the boil.
