Brew Session: English Stout

joelw85 11/14/2020 12:00:00 AM
  • Mash/Boil
  • Fermentation

All went well until I couldn't find a connection for my chiller, eventually located, hopefully no damage done! As planned liquored back in the fermenter.

Brew Session: Autumn Saison

  • Mash/Boil
  • Fermentation

The low gravity of this is because it's purely a second runnings beer, a bonus from my Quad. No extra grains were added. The rosehip syrup should make it slightly sour and fruity. Boil was interrupted by a Zoom call, had to turn down heat and come back later, so bitterness may be increased a little. Otherwise went to plan.

Brew Session: Quixotic Quad

Double brew day with a table saison from the second runnings. Wort tasted fantastic! Gravity was close but not great efficiency as usual, slightly under volume. At least I'm consistent...

Brew Session: Every hop NE PA

  • Water Infusion
  • Mash/Boil
  • Fermentation

Under volume again but over on gravity, need to put a couple of extra litres into my sparge!

Brew Session: West Coast APA

  • Water Infusion
  • Mash/Boil
  • Fermentation

Brew day went pretty well, missed gravity by a couple of points (but maybe a bit over volume) but generally getting on top of my system now. Thought I was under gravity so pulled the bittering hop bag a little early, probably didn't need to in the end! Looking forward to drinking this, the Moutere looks superb quality, sometimes you get amazing quality from NZ hops.

Brew Session: Heady Topper Clone half batch

  • Water Infusion
  • Mash/Boil
  • Fermentation
  • Conditioning
  • Tasting Notes

Man I ended up really short on volume, that wheat must suck up wort... Obvs the mega hop stand soaks some up too. Got 9l just over OG (minus the sugar though), gonna add sugar in a bit of water to try and get 2 nearly full mini kegs out of it.

Brew Session: First Gold ESB

  • Water Infusion
  • Mash/Boil
  • Fermentation

Brew day was mercifully uneventful. Did a quick sparge and no recirculation this time. Still getting poor efficiency, might tweak my mill again and pay more attention to sparge next time.

Brew Session: Kiwi-As Pils

joelw85 1/3/2020 12:00:00 AM
  • Water Infusion
  • Mash/Boil
  • Fermentation
  • Tasting Notes

Ok, so I screwed my efficiency again, ended up with OG of about 1.044, will add a touch of sugar to bump it up. Wort smells and tastes great though.

Brew Session: Simcoe Porter

  • Water Infusion
  • Mash/Boil
  • Fermentation
  • Tasting Notes

First brew with the grain tube etc of my grainfather clone. Next stage will be to get a pump. Not sure of what efficiency to expect.

Brew Session: Tropical Juice IPA

joelw85 4/6/2019 12:00:00 AM
  • Water Infusion
  • Mash/Boil
  • Fermentation

Nearly hit my numbers. My boiler has a big boil off rate!
