Who is brewing this weekend?
« on: September 19, 2008, 01:29:06 PM »
Nothing brewing for me.  Have what was supposed to be a Robust Porter that turned out to be an American Brown due to lack of the appropriate amount of Chocolate Malt, in primary.  Planning on a Bohemian Pils in a couple weeks.

Brewed a Robust Porter on Wednesday (Looking for some advice)but nothing this weekend.

I'll probably be doing Denny Conns Rye IPA this weekend.  I didn't make a yeast starter yet though because I have a cold and I might have to work.

Take a look at the BJCP guidelines for Porters.  Gives you a good idea for IBU range:

Probably won't brew again until early October.  Maybe a winter warmer and then a session beer of some sort.

Did a Rauchbier last weekend.  Fermenting happily at 54F in the garage fridge.

Not happening.  Maybe next weekend.  I did a nice tour of Oskar Blues new facilities in Longmont CO, followed by Left Hand Brewery tour given by cofounder Dick!! Tomorrow is their 15 year anniversary, so buy a Left Hand and raise a toast to them on Sunday the 21st.  Then we went to the Pump House and had their GABF entry for sour beers.  Pretty cool day until the wife put potatoes on the stove and fell asleep.  The house was full of smoke (again).

I've got an ESB that I will prob bottle tonight, and I have my Xmas Old Ale in primary right now.  Next brew day will prob not be for two weeks, and will either be another ESB, or a second shot at a hoppy wheat that I brewed on Memorial day.

Hmmm, only in the boil, huh? How do you think it would work in secondary?

I've got another cinnamon stick soaking in 5 ounces of orange vodka that I will consider adding after I rack it pending the spice profile.

I've done cinnamon in secondary before, and it was a little but too much... I think that was a "2 stick" effort.  It took a very long time in the bottle to mellow out.  I did not want to mess with that this time.

Brewing our first batch tonight during MNF. Supposed to be an Irish Stout. We'll see what we actually create though. Keep in mind that none of the five of us have ever done this before. If you don't hear back from me tomorrow, please name your next batch after me.

Fingers crossed,

I've already named one batch after you, you're not getting another one. 

BTW good luck with the batch.  Remember that things cannot be too clean.  Also, don't be discouraged if your first batch doesn't turn out as expected.  My first batch was undrinkable, but I think you guys are in a much better position (equipment and recipe wise) than I was when I started.

I brewed yesterday.  Dicking around with my new equipment, I didn't start mashing in until like 4 in the afternoon.  Final cleanup at midnight-30'ish.  The yeast took off!!!  There were 4 oz of hops at 70mins, .5 oz at 30 mins and 1 oz at 1 min.  I mention this because a lot of it ended up on my ceiling when the bubbler got clogged and blew off. Twice.  This is with a blow off hose attached!!!  What a mess. Yeast party, my house right now. ;)   :pickle:  :pickle:

Maybe that will teach you to not get too cocky.

Even though it's not true. Even the Gravitational Ale that you sent was outstanding. And I recall you being worried about it being a flop. Not at all. I actually still have the bottle from the Nucular Furley batch.

Our first batch didn't burn anybody's house down. It smelled incredible the whole time. And it is now in the bucket waiting for us next week. It even smelled like a stout, which is good since the recipe is supposed to be an Irish Stout.

I mentioned that we should experiment with putting some baking chocolate in the secondary, but no one else is brave enough for that apparently. I told them that we have you guys as a resource to help make that decision easier. But they said something about staying with the recipe on our first batch. Slackers. :unsure:

"McCutcheon Irish Chocolate Stout" sounded pretty nice to me. But I got no support on that one.

That's always a good start.  Glad to hear that it went well.  You are going to hate waiting for it to bottle condition.

There are always beers to drink. What's the worst that happens? I have to keep drinking "other" stuff? No biggie. I bought a half-case of Founders Breakfast Stout last night. Some more Choklat. And a few other nuggets.

Plus it's not sitting at my house right now. So I won't be reminded on a daily basis by taking temp readings in the basement. I just have to go back to John's house for the MNF game next week and help with the next steps. I can do that.

So just hypothetically if "we" wanted to put some chocolate in this batch, when and how much? Obviously, I've never messed with this before, so I have no clue. Just curious in case we were to change our collective minds, or want to try it for the next batch or another one soon.

run a half gallon off in to a growler and drop your chocolate in there... no reason to mess around with the first batch at this point.

Hey! Stop talking sense into my nonsense. Got it?

Plus, I don't have any growlers left. Looks like I'll have to go buy a growler full of beer and drink it in order to have a growler to use. :kickrock:

And how much chocolate would one hypothetically use in this case? You know, in case one would want to experiment in such a way.

Didn't brew this past weekend.  Poured beers for Starr Hill at the NoVa Brewfest.  I will be kegging my Robust Brown Ale tonight so it will be ready to drink this weekend.  Debating between a Boh Pils or Milk Stout "dry hopped" with coffee for my next beer.

Not brewing but bottling my Porter Project. Six different flavorings in secondaries. Do you think priming sugar will be the same or will I need to adjust amounts for each? What about those sugar tablets that you drop in the bottle? Are those any good? That mught be the easiest route.

Flavors are- Blackberry (frozen fruit), Raspberry (frozen fruit), Chocolate (powder), Coconut (Shredded and toasted), Vanilla (Extract), Bourbon Maple (Syrup aged in bourbon barrels)

I think that since it is a "project" that you need to carb each equally as a control and adjust as necessary going forward with future batches.

The tablets may be an easy way to accomplish that.

I only have one tank and regulator so I usually just put it on serving pressure (so I can continue to enjoy the other tap) and wait it out.  I've not pumped up the pressure to carbonate it more quickly but have read about it a few times.

I carb all my beers by force carbonation.  I do 24 hrs at 30 psi then dial it back to about 10 psi.  Carbed and ready to drink in 2 days tops.  I have 4 beers on tap with a single tank.  I also have a double regulator so I keep my tapped beers at serving pressure and can carb another keg.

I'll have to try this with my next keg.  I'll just shut off the valve to the keg that's already carbonated for the first 24 hours.

Camera is broken :hot:
I GREATLY underestimated the Pain-in-the-ass factor of this "little" project. :explode: I used the sugar tablets for priming. That was the only thing that went easily for me. That and I planned to lose quite a bit by using 10 total containers but in the end, I still had 44 bottles.

From what I smelled and tasted, none of the flavors seem to be present. Well, except for the Maple growler. That seems like it's going to be pretty good. The Berry growlers only yielded four bottles each and the coconut had a layer of oil that could screw with head retention. The straight porter turned out great which I'm very happy about! That should give me a good perspective on how the other flavors turn out. Looking back I should have mixed some of the partial bottles to see how they turn out- Chocolate Blackberry, Vanilla Coconut, Mixed Berry.

We'll see how it turns out next week :unsure:

I bottled an ESB, I racked my Holiday beer to secondary, and I brewed an ordinary bitter.  It was a busy Saturday.

I did that with one SN Celebration I had yesterday. Had it in the freezer to get cold, forgot about it for an extra hour or so. Frozen solid. Doubt I'll drainpour it, but maybe it'll turn into an Eisbock or something. :shrug:

Yup. That's going to be the tricky part.

I brood a porter

Nothing brewing for me.  Have what was supposed to be a Robust Porter that turned out to be an American Brown due to lack of the appropriate amount of Chocolate Malt, in primary.  Planning on a Bohemian Pils in a couple weeks.

I should be brewing an IPA and a stout the day after Halloween. Any suggestions for type of stout or recipes? I was thinking of going for a Belgian stout.

Belgian stouts seem VERY hard to get right.  Might want to go for something a bit easier than that.  Maybe a big oatmeal stout?

I was wondering if a Belgian might be pretty difficult. Oatmeal stout is probably a much better idea.
