BREW UPDATE: 10 gallons of a Hoppy Wheat (originally inspired by Southern Tier's Hop Sun oh so many years ago) brewed in 20 degree weather on Feb 28th.

I made a tap label on my phone, it made me feel fancy.

 

From 2010 when my then 3 year old daughter named this beer for me:
Quote
I've brewed this one enough to give it a name, so upon returning home from Ryan's, I asked Ella for a good name for this beer. Without hesitation, she replied, "Allie Torenta!" I have no idea where she got that name, and have no idea what it means... but she was passionate about it, and recalled the same name when I asked her (unprompted) the next day. So "Allie Torenta" it is! Future spelling TBD, but I have no problem rolling as is for now.

Brewed 10 gallons of mild today, only had to lift it once, which with my monstrosity of kettle, is always a good thing. GB a pipeline

I made another label on my phone, I am not good at this stuff.  P.S. My daughter named this one too :unsure:

I took off on Friday and went over to my GB's brewpub to knock out 20 gallons of surprise birthday roast beer for a mutual GB. It was fun using the homebrew equipment in the brewery.



We used a recipe that I pretty much came up with (so I hope it does not suck).  It is essentially a golden version of my ESB base with an American hop schedule and my go-to English yeast. We are putting 15 gallons in a sanke half and 5 in my pin to be served via gravity.  Pretty sure we are going to kick the pin up a notch with charred habanero and mango (as a throwback to a previous beer brewed for/by the birthday boy)

ETA: the crowd that will be drinking this beer at the roast will be grade A beer ticker nerds.  I expect it to be all over local social media.... so like I said, I hope it does not suck ;)

ETA2: I hit my gravity... the pro-brewer didn't  :P

The pin was a HIT!





On Saturday I brewed my first 5 gallon batch since February 2013.  Whoa. P.S. it was an IPA, I am not much of an IPA guy anymore.

I accidentally made a 6.9% beer when I was aiming for a 5.5% one :unsure:

As it turns out, the "Honey" in my GB's recipe I used as a starting point meant "Honey Malt" not raw honey.  Oops.

I brewed 8 gallons of something pretty similar to this yesterday.  I will be pouring 5 gallons of it an an outing and am struggling with what to call it. This version should be similarly hoppy, but only be about 4.3% ABV.  I should just go with IPA, right?  That crowd may not know the difference anyway...

Session IPA is defined in the 2015 BJCP guidelines under Specialty IPA

Session – ABV: 3.0 – 5.0%
Standard – ABV: 5.0 – 7.5%
Double – ABV: 7.5 – 10.0%


ETA, for entries you are supposed to further classify which sub-category of specialty ipa it is (american, english, red, brown, etc) but "session IPA" is pretty commonly used

I know and I hate it... I had no idea was an actual thing though.

ETA: my mind is a bit blown at this point

Broke my 2016 brewing cherry this weekend with 10 gallons of an all Mosaic american wheat.  My undersized immersion chiller worked like a champ with the entire hose buried in snow.

Yay!  I finally brewed again yesterday!  (3rd time this year - 10g of ordinary bitter in March).

I knocked out a 10 gallon Citra & Mosaic hop BOMB!  Big hoppys are not usually my thing, but I love that hop combo, plus out of the 23oz of hops I am using, I only added 1oz prior to 10minutes.  Juicy.

Best part of this brew?  It cost me $4 out of pocket for the oats.  I love having pro-brewer friends!  Opne bummer is that I thought I had a cleaner yeast on hand to let the hops really shine, but I can not imagine the esters from the Whitbread strain will be to present in this one - who knows, it may even work out well?

24 lbs Pale Ale Malt; Rahr info
4 lbs Oats Flaked info

1.25 oz CitraTM (Pellets, 12.00 %AA) boiled 60 min. info
1 oz CitraTM (Pellets, 12.00 %AA) boiled 10 min. info
1 oz MosaicTM (Pellets, 12.50 %AA) boiled 10 min. info
4 oz CitraTM (Pellets, 12.00 %AA) boiled 0 min. info
4 oz MosaicTM (Pellets, 12.50 %AA) boiled 0 min. info
6 oz CitraTM (Pellets, 12.00 %AA) used as dry hop. info
6 oz MosaicTM (Pellets, 12.50 %AA) used as dry hop. info
Yeast : Fermentis S­04 Safale S­04 info

My mosaic kick continues brewed my 4th 10 gallon batch of the year yesterday, it was the 3rd mosaic one.  I'm calling it BEACH BEER, it is inspired by Carton's Boat Beer, and is a 4.4% blond ale with a bunch of mosaic added late and some citra sprinkled in along the way as well.  Oh, and oats.  I uses oats again.  Good times.

I hope I like it, because it was way more expensive than I had budgeted for, but I have a 10g Dunkelweiss on desk for Friday... using a new yeast for kicks, and I am most worried about that.

On the plus side my last 20 gallons combined cost me less than $4 out of pocket, so I've got that going for me.

P.S. when did Breiss wheat get so expensive?

I brewed a 5-gallon batch last weekend.  Everything about it felt odd; I am going back to 10 gallons full time.  On the plus side, having a 3 hour brew day was pretty darn nice.

I knocked out 10 gallons of ESB on Saturday, it is on of my  "flagships", but I have not brewed it in over 2 years.  I am 2 for 2 in calendar months brewed this year.  My goal, as always, is to be 12/12.

Peach Wheatwine?  Sure, why not: 8 gallons fermenting as we speak after a Sunday brewday.

:excited: Did you use peach puree?
Had a very interesting one of these at a fest last weekend. It was an '11 vintage, with fresh peach puree added. Had some funk also.

Oh, I missed this.  I used sliced peaches that I bagged and mashed up.  It is sitting on them now.... it is also sitting at over 10% ABV.  Nice.

So this got a "top 3" result in the "Other" category in the #HBGBeerWeek Battle of the Homebrewers contest yesterday. 

P.S. My BEACH BEER (http://www.thebeerspot.com/forum/index.php/topic,14422.msg704830.html#msg704830) got 1st place in the IPA/DIPA category.  ;)

I've knocked out 20 gallons over the last 3 weeks.  10 Gallons of a 3.3% mild that is drinking really well so far, and 10g of Patersbier that should finish at about 4.7%.  My basement currently smells like heaven from the Westmalle strain fermentation in the patersbier.
