I moved both my beers downstairs to heat them 2 degreess. It looks like the 10 day old beer will be ready before the 30 day old beer.

Got up and got my cooler today in another town. 15 bucks for a nice 10 gallon cooler. Just got done bottling 4 gallons of my New Castle Clone. Going to try to brew Monday of Tuesday.

Just got done bottling 2.5G of a brown ale...Came out a tad darker then anticipated..

Tried to take a final gravity reading(my hydrometers had been having fun playing hide and seek on me so I didn't get an original gravity, but I finally found them!), and I could use a little help interpreting what I am seeing..If I read it correctly I THINK that it is reading 1.012? If so, then I DO know what I am doing!LMAO..

Ordered stuff for an Avery White Rascal clone. Heaved a carboy of Caribou Slob into the keezer to cold crash.

Boiled my rye IPA (mashed it last night), cleaned my tap, and installed a new line.

Now I'm going to chill done beers for the party we are having tomorrow.

Kegged 5 gallons of my #9 clone. Hydro sample tasted good. Also purchased the grain for my next batch.

IBU numbers are overrated :) that sounds like a good beer to me.

It's only a pre hopped kit

Coopers Australisn Pale Ale 1.7 kg
Plus LME 1.5 kg
Some light crystal and caramunich 1 @ 125g ea

25grams Columbus and Simcoe at 10
And another 25g of each st 5

It's actually closer to 66IBUs.

BRY 97 which usually works really well for me.

I got carried away....

And now I'm drunk.

I find that whilst you do get bitterness from those later additions it is somewhat counterbalanced by the flavour

That is what I was thinking while I crossed my fingers and ignored Ianh's awesome spreadsheet.

:-D

God, it smelled good when I poured the boil into the FV.

cleaned out my 2.5g keg getting ready to keg/bottle my "Defective Clone" this weekend. Attempted the Dogfish Head 60min clone.... mistakes were made, but she's almost ready.

Picked up another LBK, plus the grains for a mini-mash to make a rye APA tonight. Also got some Campden tabs, and knocked out the chlorine & chloramines from 3 gallons of water already.

Just waiting for late-night tonight to make the beer!

Put my weird-Alice rye pale ale to bed this morning at 3:00AM.

BOY, do whole-cone hops suck up the wort!

Today I bottled a Belgian ipa, am brewing a Belgian porter, and am bottling a Belgian blonde. Belgians are life.

Related: I'm officially a fan of t-58. It's a solid choice for Belgian dry yeast. Can't wait for this Belgian porter :mug:

Very nice!! Will you still be doing your pm/pb brews?
I'll still be doing the pb/pm biab beers, besides kit-n-kilo & modded AE pipeline fillers as well. This one is a surprise that came to me,so I'm going for it! The mash is close to done atm. Matter of fact this is a biab beer as well, albeit 1 gallon. Smells good all the way into the man cave!

It's a porter. Porter goood! OG Est was 1.058, I got a 1.060 with 60F wort. Chilled it down a hair too much, so it got to free rise in the kettle while I got everything else ready. Not bad at all. Had boiled it down to within about 1/4C of the one gallon mark too! Weighed the half packet of S-04 & dumped it in. I'll finish pics in the morning.

I bought a jigsaw to make the square holes for the PIDs in my new panel. Went pretty well, largely recovered from a disastrous attempt to use a spade bit to make starter holes through the plastic.

Also got the holes made for the element outlets. One of those single 240v 20a outlets fits perfectly in a 1.5" hole using a gasket removed from a heating element.

I also stocked up on specialty grains for a coffee stout, ESB and an IPA
