Up a little after 4am yeast pitched around 8:30 am. Had to add .5 lb dme to get preboil up to plan. OG 1.069 at 54 when I pitched. Will ferment around 50 this week. 4/11/2021 7:39:23 AM3227#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=75#comments awesome tasting. Carbonation isn't there yet, but I'm sure it will be soon. 4/10/2021 2:56:02 PM3226#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=105#comments today. 2l with 2 cups dme. Brew day tomorrow. Have not decided if this will be an overnight mash yet. 4/10/2021 1:37:56 PM3225#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=75#comments now this looks and tastes quite a bit like a hazy IPA. Hoping it will clear up fast.4/9/2021 1:13:45 PM3224#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=105#comments lager. Not really much in the hops today.4/8/2021 7:50:21 PM3223#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=165#comments Added the last of the dry hops (a little more than 1 oz). Love the flavor. Finished very dry at 1.003. It actually might be a bit lower to be honest. Love the French saison flavor. Nice hop flavor as well. Chilling in the kegerator. Have not applied gas yet.4/8/2021 7:48:44 PM3222#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=105#comments Stream Spring Saison Spring version of the seasonal saison. This one is light in color and very hoppy. It is also a little higher in alcohol than my other saisons, but still in style.4/8/2021 7:43:38 PM105#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=105-04/08/2021 Bock nice little bock recipe that I hope to enjoy during Lent.4/6/2021 3:20:11 PM153#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=153-04/06/2021 keg finally kicked today.

Still waiting on a keg. I think Mardi Bock is close to kicking.4/5/2021 9:35:12 AM3219#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=105#comments This beer lasted to Easter. ?? yum. Of the beers I had today, this was my favorite. Nice clear dark red. Bready. Malty. Balanced. So Guuud. 4/4/2021 5:54:07 PM3218#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=153#comments ingredients today. Since it's Easter weekend, I probably won't brew, but I might. 4/2/2021 3:21:34 PM3217#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=75#comments says 0.997 at 67 degrees. Based on experience with the tilt, I would guess this beer is probably around 1.002 or lower. Wow. Beer looks ready. Just need a keg.3/30/2021 7:35:28 AM3216#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=105#comments is a great beer. 3/26/2021 5:45:43 PM3214#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=174#comments 3/26/2021 5:40:06 PM3213#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=153#comments bad for a fruit beer. 3/26/2021 5:38:19 PM3212#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=63#comments the flavor and color. Great clarity. Maybe a bit much on the foam, but carbonation is close. Turned off gas to let beer de-gas a bit. 3/26/2021 1:25:41 PM3211#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=165#comments says 1.002 at 67 degrees. Will let this sit for a few days. I'll probably keg next week. Mardi Bock is probably the next keg to kick.3/26/2021 7:45:05 AM3210#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=105#comments says 1.006 at 69 degrees. Added in a little less than half the dry hops in tea balls. A little less than 1 oz total. The remaining will be added into the keg.3/25/2021 1:22:01 PM3209#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=105#comments actually pretty good already. Geletin certainly needs more time. Wonderful flavor. Love the color. 3/24/2021 5:00:53 PM3208#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=165#comments to brew this again to Drink In May.3/24/2021 12:08:20 PM3207#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=75#comments at 69 degrees.

Still lots of movement but I think the kraussen is starting to calm down. 3/23/2021 6:39:33 AM3203#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=105#comments was started by yesterday afternoon. Tilt says 1.043 at 68. Lots of kraussen, which might be making tilt under report attenuation. Might need blow off tube. 3/22/2021 7:27:24 AM3202#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=105#comments Dave's Pale Lager brother-in-law Dave grabbed wild hops from his yard and let me have some. Making a beer to try these out.3/21/2021 11:53:00 AM165#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=165-03/21/2021 1.009. Nice hop flavor. Not very clear yet. Need to clean kegerator lines before chilling. 3/21/2021 9:30:07 AM3201#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=165#comments day went pretty well. Started heating up to boil at 69%, so I didn't save much time by doing overnight mash. Cleanup done at 10am. OG right at plan. 3/21/2021 9:28:20 AM3200#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=105#comments I made a starter. I did an overnight mash starting early this morning. Today, up at 6am to drain wort and start heating to boil. 3/21/2021 5:13:42 AM3199#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=105#comments the keg. 3/20/2021 5:38:49 PM3198#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=30#comments beer is on its prime. Great blueberry flavor. 3/20/2021 9:04:40 AM3197#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=63#comments beer. Delicious. Will try to finish off keg this weekend to make room for Galena Dave's. 3/20/2021 9:03:27 AM3196#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=30#comments says 1.007 at 65. Have not seen movement in a few days. I think I'm ready to keg. Need to empty one to hold this. I think Stouticus is close.3/19/2021 7:59:15 AM3195#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=165#comments clear. Beautiful red color. Nice bready Munich malt flavor. Enough hop bitterness to balance sweetness. Will this last until Easter? Not sure, but considering it is still 20 days away, probably not. 3/15/2021 12:19:34 PM3194#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=153#comments still on until end of day. Tilt says 1.009 at 59F. Took a sample. Very yeastie. Flavor pretty good other than the yeast. 3/15/2021 12:16:38 PM3193#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=165#comments keg blew. That beer didn't last very long. It was really an awesome beer while it lasted. Great hoppy beer. 3/14/2021 3:31:04 PM3192#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=4#comments pretty good now. Great carbonation. Delicious beer. 3/14/2021 3:27:48 PM3191#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=174#comments at 1.012 55 degrees. Bubbling about stopped. Anvil up to 56.

Blueberry flavor right where it should be. 3/13/2021 4:40:01 PM3189#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=63#comments a great beer. Might be a little less hop flavor in the finish, but still has that American Stout character. 3/13/2021 4:38:58 PM3188#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=30#comments says 1.013 at 55F. Still seems to be going pretty strong, but the bubbling seems to be slowing down some.3/12/2021 9:53:10 AM3187#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=165#comments a pint. Carbonation is pretty close. Clarity is getting better, but still needs a bit more time. The color seems more golden than the paler yellow from last batch.3/11/2021 3:49:31 PM3186#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=174#comments day of Spring is coming in a couple of weeks. Updating the recipe for 2021.3/11/2021 11:50:34 AM3185#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=105#comments giving keg shots of CO2.

Need more.3/11/2021 11:09:08 AM3183#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=4#comments says 1.030 at 52F.

Turning up the set temp to 51.3/9/2021 8:46:35 AM3181#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=165#comments says 1.049 at 54 degrees. Not much activity yet. 3/9/2021 6:59:54 AM3180#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=165#comments day today. Everything went well. OG a bit low, but that's ok. 3/8/2021 7:43:16 PM3179#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=165#comments day for Galena Dave's, I decided to try a pint. Obviously not carbed yet, and still hazy. But the flavor is right on. 3/8/2021 12:41:33 PM3178#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=174#comments is really nice having this in the keg cooler in the garage. I think I might want to pay attention and try to only put low abv in there in the future. It's right there, so I drink it. 7.3 abv f's me up. ??3/7/2021 5:40:41 PM3177#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=4#comments in .5 tsp gelatin dissolved in .5 cup water. Spilled some. Oh well.

Delicious. 3/6/2021 8:57:45 PM3174#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=153#comments Lima Mexican Lager ironically named "Bud Lite Lime". No bud. Not lite. No lime.

Sin Lima.3/6/2021 3:54:19 PM174#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=174-03/06/2021 Plus a bit extra for my current Franken-beer jug. 1.009 FG (matched the plan). Sample tastes how I remember this beer is supposed to. Not sure I got extra Saaz flavor out of the fermenter hops. Chilling in the beer fridge. Will probably add gelatin tomorrow. 3/6/2021 3:51:54 PM3173#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=174#comments blew tonight. It was a wonderful beer while it lasted. 3/5/2021 7:06:21 PM3172#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=185#comments away a half growler today, and had to try a pint. Still fantastic. Still nice hop flavor along with the chocolate notes of the malts. Yummy. 2/28/2021 12:40:59 PM3171#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=30#comments 5:15pm ... 1.013 62 ... I unplugged the cooling pump. 2/27/2021 5:19:06 PM3170#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=174#comments drinking. Delicious. Lots of Munich malt flavor. Clarity is great now. Hope this lasts until at least Easter.2/27/2021 5:26:13 AM3169#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=153#comments looking nice and clear. I overcarbed last time I gave it a shot of CO2, but it seems to be ok with lower flow. Really nice beer.2/27/2021 5:25:13 AM3168#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=4#comments says 1.013 at 57. Turned up controller to 62, but will probably just unplug by the end of the day.2/27/2021 5:23:58 AM3167#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=174#comments says 1.015 at 55. Still bubbling a little. Bumping up a degree now. Will do it one more time later today if I remember. The controller still says 54, so maybe rising the temp won't really do anything. We'll see.2/26/2021 8:37:57 AM3166#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=174#comments even lighter. Tilt says 1.017 at 54. Bumping up the temp to 55. 2/25/2021 9:26:23 AM3164#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=174#comments a little slower. Tilt says 1.018 at 53f. Anvil controller temp matches.

Bumped temp up to 53. 2/23/2021 7:23:25 AM3162#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=174#comments this morning. Tilt says 1.036 at 52. Turned up the controller to match the 52. I also added more water to cooler. 2/22/2021 7:12:33 AM3161#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=174#comments day started at 4:30. Went well. Pretty much done by 8:30. 1.042 OG. Fermentor in garage to start. Pitched at 52 degrees. 2/21/2021 8:34:14 AM3160#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=174#comments ready to drink. Nice blueberry flavor. 2/20/2021 4:37:29 PM3159#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=63#comments red ale.

Will brew tomorrow.2/20/2021 2:31:17 PM3157#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=174#comments Dave's Pale Lager (previous batches) 4:25:03 PM179#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=179-02/19/2021 close. Nice blueberry flavor. 2/17/2021 7:14:36 PM3156#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=63#comments FG right at 1.010. Exactly what I remember QLC tasting like. Hops with a nice malt backbone. Beautiful red color. Chilling on my back patio. 2/16/2021 7:06:08 PM3155#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=4#comments ingredients yesterday. Spilled some grain when milling. I think I got most of it scooped up and into the bag.2/15/2021 9:07:12 AM3154#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=174#comments recipe .. but renaming to Sin Lima.2/14/2021 9:24:23 AM3153#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=174#comments Berry American Wheat trying Sweetwater's Blue, my wife asked me to make a blueberry wheat beer. This is it.2/13/2021 8:01:50 AM63#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=63-02/13/2021 about half (2oz) of the flavoring. 2/13/2021 7:51:43 AM3152#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=63#comments 1.008 FG. Nice purple color. Tastes like I think a Blueberry Wheat should taste. Chilling on back patio. 2/13/2021 7:33:48 AM3151#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=63#comments blew. Now I can keg Boo Berry Wheat. It was a delicious beer. 2/12/2021 8:20:27 PM3150#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=89#comments says 1.003 at 66. No way that is accurate. Took a tiny taste sample. Very yeastie, but the hop flavor seems good. Still think we're a week away from kegging. 2/11/2021 9:20:22 AM3149#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=4#comments another sample. Carbonation about right, so I turned down psi some. Gorgeous and delicious beer. 2/10/2021 1:23:40 PM3148#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=153#comments really slowed down. Just about stopped. Tilt says 1.007 at 69. I can't imaging 7 is all that accurate, but we'll see what I get once I take hydrometer reading. Not sure when I'll keg this beer. Probably at least 1 week from now.2/10/2021 12:27:25 PM3147#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=4#comments going strong. Tilt says 1.026 at 74. Will probably be down to FG in a day or two. 2/9/2021 7:38:19 AM3146#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=4#comments hard. Tilt says 1.064 (down 5) at 64. Smells like hops. 2/8/2021 7:01:44 AM3145#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=4#comments a sample. Almost no carbonation. Turned up psi to 20. Great flavor. Really really good. Reminds me of my award winning maibock. ??2/7/2021 4:15:20 PM3144#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=153#comments day went pretty well. Done cleaning up right around 9AM. OG right on. Maybe a bit high. Didn't make a yeast starter, so we'll see how things go.2/7/2021 9:10:25 AM3143#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=4#comments stopped. Kraussen gone. Still ugly purplish brown color. Not sure when a keg will open up. Will probably keg when one does. 2/7/2021 8:15:36 AM3142#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=63#comments the mash at midnight so I could start draining wort right when I got up. Heating to boiling starting at 6AM.2/7/2021 5:57:59 AM3141#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=4#comments today. Awesome flavor. Beautiful color, but it looks a little lighter than the picture from before. Its clarity is even really good going into the keg. Mardi gras starts in 11 days. Should be ready in plenty of time.2/5/2021 11:09:46 AM3140#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=153#comments away. Ugly purple brown color. Weird looking kraussen. Temp strip at 64/66. Several more days to go. 2/3/2021 8:35:25 AM3139#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=63#comments has read 1.017 for 4 days now. 66 degrees today. I am ready to keg at any time. I actually have a keg free, but need to clean it. At this point ... the beer seems to be 6.9%ABV with an attenuation of 75%. Mardi Gras starts in 14 days. Will I be able to refrain from drinking before then? We'll see.2/2/2021 8:43:17 AM3138#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=153#comments
