Waiting for my Atonement Brown Porter (Courtesy of Airborneguy) to finish up so I can put a BlackHook clone on the yeastcake.

Did a double brew today.

First batch was a Pumpkin Spice Porter and the second was an attempt at an Anchor Steam Liberty Ale clone.

I am currently brewing a Samuel Smith Oatmeal Stout Clone. Pretty stoked about it too, it's been bubbling away for the past day or so! We all know the good feeling haha. Still waiting to try my Everyday IPA, as it will be my first homebrew ever. A few more weeks and it'll be in my belly, nice! I plan on taking a photo of the first beer I pour from each of my homebrews. Can't wait for that first one...

Two Hearted Ale and Oberon...two of my favorites.
Had a great brew day yesterday with my 4yr old assitant brewer. Hit all the numbers spot on. It's happily bubbling away and it smells wonderfull, mmmm..nice centennial hop aroma :ban:
Bonus.... the blow off is going into a flask with boiled and cooled water so I can harvest some nice clean yeast for the next batch :D

We've got 2 6G batches in the fermenters. My 1st shot at a Burton ale,& her batch of SA Summer ale clone I came up with. The Burton ale's blow off gave off the aromas of toasty butterscotch. The aromas from the Summer ale seem pretty close so far. I know in some English ales a butterscotch flavor/aroma is meritorious,so we'll see how it comes out. 1st FG test @ 2 weeks is tomorrow.

Norhtern English Brown ready to bottle. Christmas Metheglin ready for second racking. Would like to do a Porter or Heffe next, but will probably put my brew budget into converting a free cooler into a mash tun.:(

I got two all Cascade IPAs going, split a pound of hops between 2-5.5 gal batches. Threw some slurry from the first into the second (brewed a week apart). Worked great!

I call it "Pancake Stout"
It's an imperial stout (9.5%), partial mash with maple syrup and vanilla beans.

Got an IPA with Grapefruit peel, went a bit big on the grapefruit, was a bit sour going into the fermenter. Just dry hopped today and we will see in a week or so.

IPA brewed by son Alistair on our 100 litre home brew rig. Nice balance with just the right amount of bitterness and after hop. Someone taught him well... Cleaning equipment today for last brew before Christmas tomorrow.

Brewed up a cranberry orange wit style beer. First time adding flavor additions in. The sample tasted ok, I do have some cranberry extract to give it a little more flavor if needed.

I worked up a recipe for a Sassafras Ginger Saison. I have bare root sassafras which I ordered online. Does anyone have any experience using it. Any help will be much appreciated.

Doing my first attempt at an imperial stout. This isnt easy at all, using every specialty grain i have and the grist is topping out at 20lbs even. Really dont know what to expect but as soon as its finished itll go in a room to relax for 6 months.

11th batch of my ersatz Julius clone recirculating. Slept late, now playing catch up...

20210123_104728.jpg


Nailed the pH....

20210123_111612.jpg


Fly sparge started. So far so good :)

20210123_122137.jpg


May be my best fly sparge in recent memory, looking for 14 gallon pre boil gravity of 1.057, got 1.061 :ban:
Last runnings 5.55 pH and 1.011 SG. Not much left behind...

20210123_140234(0).jpg


Boil ON! :)


Whirlpooling 6 ounces of citra, simcoe and mosaic. Yum!

20210123_152806.jpg



Carried the bonus gravity points through to the fermentors - recipe OG was 1.074, actual was 1.077.
Running off at 1 gpm through my Hopstopper-2 which performed wonderfully today.

Could not be more pleased with how well this Hopblocker-2 worked today. That's 10 ounces of pellet mush left behind. And no bottom scorching.

julius_11_23jan2021_07.jpg


All gassed, hooked up to the keg purging system for this fridge, and ready to rock :)

HOW ABOUT YOU?
Slow down a bit. You harvested yeast from a commercial beer and brewed with it? Can you tell em how did you do it?

Love the pics and the info. Man brewing inside looks like a slice of Heaven! I'm really considering the Stopper2. I've been using a stainless spider I let rest on a stem in my BK. I haven't felt hop deprived, but still feel commando is the best way. 4" of snow killed my brew day yesterday. 25 today and 52 by Sunday, go figure. Like your stuff all the way around.
