Brewing a double Classic American Pilsner today. I was calling it malt liquor, but I said that in the LHBS and two of the three working there got real quiet. So, I decided I'd go with double CAP. Hopefully it's not too bad, otherwise I'm going to stay lit until I make the keg go away!

Yooper's Oatmeal Stout brew day went pretty smoothly. Hopefully, I'll see some activity in the blow-off in the moning. Pitched the yeast at about 3:30 pm and the yeast was packaged Dec. 10th, so it should nice and fresh!

Just finished brewing a 10 gallon all grain (BIAB) split batch of a belgian pale ale with grains of paradise, tangerine peel, cloves, saffron and vanilla bourbon soaked french oak chips. Split the batch into 2 fermenters and used WLP500 "Monastery" Ale Yeast and WLP515 Antwerp Ale Yeast (De Koninck). Ended up with a higher gravity (1.065) than expected due to my new 220,000 BTU burners, but hey, tasted pretty delicious.

Just pitched my yeast in Morebeer.com's American IPA. It was my first time using them. Previously I have always gone with Northern Brewer or something from my LHBS. Finished at 1.062, on the high end of their estimate.

Got two brews planned for this weekend... I still can't decide what style I want to brew for the first one (DIPA is the second... that's a lock).

I'm either thinking a blonde, an English Mild or something along those lines. I need a quick turn around to keep my pipeline filled.

Feel free to throw suggestions at me.

Made my gingerbread flavoring for the 2 gallons of Yooper's Oatmeal stout that I'm going to split off in about a week. Soaking in vodka, in the fridge.

Brewing right now. A 10 gallon worth of a ~4% saison which 5 gallons will have a farmhouse blend and the other 5 gallons will have a sour blend. Then once they are done bigger beer will go on top

Bottled two five gallon batchs, a Yooper House Ale and a IPA. Then brewed a five gallon honey ale and a five gallon nut brown ale. I think I will re organize my brew stuff and throw some pre cleaned bottles in the dish washer to get ready for next week end.

Brewing up an 8 gallon batch of brown ale to sour with ECY-20 Bug County. Biggest single batch I've done, but I'm boiling in two vessels for safety purposes.

Not brewing this weekend, but I will be doing a brew on the 1st. Brewing a RIS that's going to max out my mash tun for a club barrel brew.

I will be either brewing on New Years Day, or building a stirplate and playing with yeast starters and then brewing on Saturday. Next beer in the queue is a simple cream ale
  • 85% American pale ale malt
  • 15% corn
  • I haven't decided which hops to use because I don't have any Cluster, maybe Willamette.
  • Nottingham yeast.
