What ya makin' ?

Sounds like Joe is off to a rapid start.

A porter with some nips and grinds and maybe some beans depending on how I feel when I move it to secondary. Today is brew day!

Just bottled 3 different brews today
.9/3 I brewed an Octoberfest larger.. I used my Grainfather to ferment, and then larger, I was able to sustain 38 until I bottled it today... 9/11 I brewed a Sons of liberty Sam Adam's winter larger clone ,I built a cooler box for carboy , that in conjunction with the cool stix and chiller kept the brew at 40 degrees. This brew has nutmeg,cinnamon and bitter orange peel steeped in vodka, then added the day before botteling
.. I also bottled a spiced winter warmer ale, this one has vanilla bean , cinimon,and bitter orange, steeped in 14 ounc of spiced rum, added at botteling..I made a red honey wheat earlier this summer, I think that will be my next brew,it is delicious and everyone that had it took some home..that one used a lb..of wild flower honey..I made a black IPA..the recipe name is 3 and out.. aptly named, 1 puts me on my @$$..at 12% ABV, it's a sipping IPA, malty, delicious, but kicks like a mule..

The new electric brew pot is the cat's meow..this thing is so accurate and fast.. easy clean up too..

I love me some Black IPAs! Yours sounds like the Imperial kind which would be a new one on me, but sounds awesome.

you are correct.. BJCP-14C Imperial black IPA. Starting SG 1.096-1.100 final SG 1.012 - 1.016

14.1lbs American 2 row malt
.5 lbs. light wheat malt
1 lb. dextrose
.5 lbs. 20L crystal malt
.5 lbs. Amber malt
1 lb. de-husked Carafa II malt
Hops: 2 ounces Sterling ( 60 min.) 1 ounce Nugget (60 min) .5 ounces Wai-iti (10 min) .5 ounces Wai-Iti 2 flame out (1 min.)
Dry hop = 1 ounce centennial 1 ounce cascade 1 ounce Zythos
Yeast Safale US-05
Saccharification rest 150@ 60 min. Mash out 168 5 min.

this is a good one.. ABV =11 Color = 31 SRM IBU= 95

I have another black IPA that good as well. but not nearly as complex...this one is worth the time and trouble./. 10 weeks to drinkability..

A good run is better than a bad stand!

Porter came out totally awesome. Best brew to date. Stout just went into bottles. IPA likely next. Just have to decide if it will be Joe's Black or another shot at Double Nelson.

Awesome... I bottled a double IPA last night, my basement smells like grapefruit! brewing one last winter lager Saturday so I dont run out for awhile..that wont be ready until the end of May/first week of June

Planning on brewing a coffee porter after that and an blond IPA the same weekend ( I have 2 fermenters)..

I really enjoyed brewing lagers this winter, it was my first kick at the can, and they turned out awesome...I never paid much attention to either until I brewed them.. the crispness of the lager is refreshing..

Just put this in the secondary for largering, fermented at 48, active fermentation took a week and a half. Is I transferred into the secondary my wife commented on the beautiful golden color, I had a taste from what was left in the tube.. amazingly crisp, my first thought was Miller High life from back in the day, I started dropping the temp 2 degrees each day, when I get to 35, I'll let it rest for 4 weeks before I bottle..

do not know, first time and I just kind of went that way looking for something to do with Nelson hops. If you can, get some Fox Farm RAYS.

Well last week was a quasi disaster, didnt pay close enough attention and scorched my mash.. electric brewer is nice, but you have got to pay attention..I finished the process and pitched my yeast anyway, will do a taste sample tomorrow and decide weather to lager or dump.. brewed an american IPA today.. no issues.

I hate it when that happens. Just bottled the Hefe. It sure looks funky. Decocted a bit and the hops have a white wine grape to them. Should be ready to pop in no time me thinks.

After one week in the bottle it is pretty good. Interesting with the Nelson hops to be sure.

Did a taste test on the scorcher, it seems OK, I transferred it to the lagering freezer, ill pull it and bottle it in 6 weeks, meanwhile, I cracked open the Russian imperial stout, slit going on, chocolate is the first note, as it warms, you get the coffee and smokey oak notes, this is a great winter drinker, but I can only drink one.. brewed an Octoberfest Sunday, a little later, itll be good for Thanksgiving...next up is a trial on a gluten free beer,my grandsons fiancee needs gluten free, they have asked me to brew a gluten free wedding beer, it's a huge honor, but a tall task to make it taste like beer.. I've come up with a honey red ale recipee..

A good run is better than a bad stand!
