Smooth brew day, mash temps were rock solid today and I ended up just a bit heavy on gravity. Wort looked and tasted great after the boil; I'll kick off fermentation around 61.5 F and bump up to 65 or so as it progresses and let rise to room temp when fermentation is complete. I'm planning on adding about a quart of cold brewed coffee to the beer in a couple of days as fermentation slows. Bottled today, 3 weeks after brewing, added 1/2 cup of chocolate extract that I made from cocoa nibs and ...
Float trip Hefe, I'm going to add an ounce of orange peel and the about 1/3 ounce Perle at 5 minutes just to change this up a by adding a little orange note. Always a beer that everyone will drink and enjoy. Smooth brew day, mash temp was just a bit higher than planned, wort smelled and tasted nice, very light yellow in color, I pitched this with Munich Classic, my very favorite Hefe yeast and I'm kicking fermentation off at 64F and I'll raise it a bit as fermentation progresses until I get ...
Smooth brew day, hit mash temp withing a 1/10th of a degree and hit the 1.069 gravity estimate, beer is a beautiful light gold, looks and smells great. I haven't made this particular beer in 4 or 5 years, I always liked it and just decided to brew it today. This is a nice old school West Coast IPA. Looking forward to it. Took a reading today, 04/12/21 and it's at 1.010, clearing nicely, I'll bottle in a couple of days. Bottled today ended up with 54 bottles of IPA, still a bit cloudy but I ...
First brew in just over a year, went smoothly, ended up about a quart heavy in the fermenter and just a bit low on OG as a result. The beer was a beautiful red, the wort tasted nice and fermentation was visible about 8 hours after pitching the yeast. Looking forward to this beer.
Yearly weizen for the float trip, although there may be no float this year, covid-19 has shut down the Buffalo River as 4/2/2020 with no scheduled date to reopen. Bad crush on the wheat, which I bought milled just so I wouldn't have to adjust my mill, I should have milled it again, but I rolled with it and my efficiency suffered, I came in at just over 6 gallons but well under my target of 1.053 at 1.048, irritating. The beer will be fine, otherwise everything thing else was pretty smooth, a ...
Mash temps were stable, was started at 149.7 and ended at 149.4, ended up just shy of 6 gallons into the fermenter and just a bit high on O.G. at 1.063, smooth brew day, the wort tasted great and is a light yellow gold. I'll dry hop the first dose when fermentation is still active and then dose again once fermentation is complete. I'm kicking off fermentation at just under 64 and I'll raise it to 68 during the course of fermentation. This should be a low hop bitterness beer with high ...
Mash temps were great today, I screwed up and added an extra gallon of water to the mash, I'll boil 90 vs 60 and see how that looks and boil longer if needed, the gravity was 1.041 pre boil so efficiency was a bit better than expected. Ended up with just over 6 gallons in the fermenter with an O.G. of 1.059, wort looked and tasted great, I used about 2.5 ounces of roasted barley and the color really turned out to be what I wanted. Fermenting at just under 63 right now, I'll bring it up to 68 ...
Smooth brew day, very good efficiency as well, came .004 points high on gravity. Beer is a beautiful color, not quite as dark as I had planned because I was out of Munich and replaced with Vienna, 6 gallons in the fermenter start around 63 and let it rise to 68 over the course of fermentation.
NEIPA for annual homebrew contest. Mash temp was 151.9 and stayed there for the 60 minute mash, gravity came in at 1.063 and 6 gallons into the fermenter. Ended up with 59 bottles of delicious straw colored hazy IPA.
Mash temp came in a bit low, at 152 from a planned 154 but I just let it roll and didn't try to heat it any more, it'll be fine. Ended up with 6 gallons of 1.070 wort into the fermenter, red gold and delicious. I'll ferment around 63 and then raise to 68 over the course of a few days. I'll dry hop after a week and a half or two weeks for and leave for 5 days.
Mash temps came in a bit high, but were stable 150.8 at the start and 150.6 at the end, was shooting for 149 but I overshot. Ended up with right at 6 gallons of 1.054 wort in the fermenter, looks great, light straw color, has a nice lime flavor and I pic up the sorachi ace hops that I used late for flavor and aroma. I'll kick off fermentation at around 64 and the bring up to 68 over the course of a few days. I'll add the limeade around day 3 of fermentation. Bottled this today, hoping it'll ...
Good mash temps, fairly stable, smooth brew day. It was very hot today, ground water temps are already around 80 so it took a while in the fermentation fridge to get the temp down to 66 for pitching. Wort is a beautiful light reddish gold, tasted great. Came in right on volume at 6.00 gallons and just under my gravity estimate at 1.056. I'll dry hop after fermentation is done. Ended up with 59 bottles of nice pale gold with a nice hoppy aroma, the tangerine really comes through in the ...
Mash temp was spot on and solid, smooth brew day, the ground water is warming up so It took a while to chill to pitching temp. I'm close to a half gallon heavy on volume and just a bit low 1.055 on O.G. Took Gravity reading today, 6/17/19 , it's around 1.016 I'll bottle in a few days. Ended up with 59 bottles of nice brown ale, uncarbed it's smooth and slightly smoky with a rich flavor of chocolate and roasted grain. Looking forward to tasting when it's carbonated.
Brewing this again, simple and solid West Coast IPA. I'm using Imperial yeast "JUICE" for the recipe this time. I have some on hand and I thought I'd try it in a traditional recipe, the Yeast is supposed to be used in NEIPA. Stable mash temp, work looked and tasted great. 55 Bottles of clear light gold IPA, I'll taste in a couple of weeks.
Smooth brew day, Mash temp was good, hit 150.7 to begin and ended at 149.9 and came in a big heavy on the volumn, I poured out a guard or more and hit 1.060 SG. Beer looks great, a nice yellow color and he wort tastes great. Hoppy but not bitter, I'll add the first dry hop on day 2 or 3 depending on how quickly fermentation takes off and then add the second after fermentation is complete. Added first dry hop on 4/18 while fermentation was still active. Beer smells great. Added the 2nd dry ...
A couple of changes to the recipe today, I used malted wheat with no flaked wheat in this beer, was out of flaked but had plenty of wheat malt so I subbed it. I'm also going to add the zest of 4 grapefruits at the end of the boil(5 min) to change it up a bit. Mash started at 149.9 F and ended at 149.7 F after 60 minutes. Gravity Reading 4/12/19 1.006 likely done I'll let it condition for another week or so before bottling. Bottled this 4/19 ended up with about 61 bottles, tastes good, I'll ...
Mash temp came in a little high, I stirred for a few minutes and brought it quickly down to 155.1, called it good and mashed for 90 minutes. Temp at the end of the mash was 154.2. Wort is beautiful light gold. I came in a bit heavy on volume, about a quart and .002 on gravity from the recipe. Smooth brew day, I'll ferment around 63 and ramp to 68 over the course of a week or so. Took a gravity reading today, this is sitting at 1.012, I'm gong to move to secondary with the dry hop and bottle ...
Brewing this again. Very satisfying coffee strout. I am out of S-04 so I'm using S-05 and mashing higher, about 156 since it'll attenuate a bit more. Sitting at 157.1 for most of the mash. Ferment at at 63 for a couple of days and then ramp up a degree or so a day until it hits 68. Took a reading today, beer is at 1.022 tastes great. I'll add the coffee to this in the fermenter in a day or so and bottle about a week after. Bottled 4/5/19, ended up with 55 bottles of delicious coffee stout. ...
Brewing for my annual canoe trip. Smooth brew day, temps and gravity good and the wort tasted nice. Kicking off fermentation at 63, I'll let it rise to 68 over the course of a few days. I'll move to secondary in a couple of weeks and cold crash before bottling.
