Really like this batch of this beer. Much better than Ska's ... Which is one of my summer favorites. 9/23/2021 5:58:22 PM3401#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=174#comments drinking quite a lot. Really happy with how it turned out. Never added the gelatin,and you can tell. But flavor is awesome. Nice light drinkable beer. 9/23/2021 5:54:11 PM3400#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=191#comments seems to be done. Really nice color. Clarity looks pretty good in the fermentor.9/22/2021 12:43:32 PM3399#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=95#comments'-Wisp Pumpkin Ale world-famous pumpkin ale. Brewed because the Beer Model (aka my wife) ordered me to do so.9/20/2021 8:17:29 AM95#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=95-09/20/2021 strong this morning. Temperature strip says 63ish.9/20/2021 8:15:57 AM3398#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=95#comments says 1.009 at 61. Disconnected the cooling system. Will keg by this coming weekend.9/20/2021 8:15:18 AM3397#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=21#comments a wonderful beer. Still a great orange flavor. 9/19/2021 12:06:51 PM3396#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=41#comments day went pretty well. Kept getting stuck recirculation and overflowing the basket, but the gravity ended up right on. 6 gallons into fermentor. Should be a nice base beer. 9/19/2021 11:50:13 AM3395#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=95#comments says 1.009 at 58. Bubbling seems done. Raised controller to 58. 9/19/2021 4:25:25 AM3394#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=21#comments says 1.015 at 55 degrees. Took out the tube running to the keg. The CO2 collection never happened as expected. Maybe I didn't seal the keg right.9/17/2021 6:34:15 AM3393#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=21#comments now awesome. Need to do the comparison soon. Only have one can of Mexican Logger left.9/16/2021 2:38:07 PM3392#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=174#comments at 1.018 and 54 degrees. Controller at 54. Still no star san pushed out.9/16/2021 2:31:55 PM3391#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=21#comments Beer Model bought pumpkin yesterday. Picking up the grains and yeast today. Brew day Sunday.9/16/2021 2:29:11 PM3390#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=95#comments says 1.044 at 53 degrees. The controller is set at 52. Seems to be going well. Have not built up enough pressure in keg to push any liquid out.9/14/2021 6:51:18 AM3389#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=21#comments the afternoon, fermentation was going nicely, and the Tilt gravity was down a couple of points. I cleaned a keg today, and added star san into it. I set up collecting CO2 from fermentation into the keg. We'll see how this works.9/13/2021 3:03:36 PM3388#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=21#comments Lager beer to drink during the baseball playoffs ... hopefully while the Rockies are going to another world series. The first one was a dark, balanced, almost sweet brew with a decent ABV. It was sort of a dunkle munich style ale. 2010 is closer to a traditional Ocktoberfest lager without any Mr. Beer ingredients. Am planning to brew this every August to be ready around October.9/13/2021 7:40:39 AM21#/recipes/rocktober.aspx-09/13/2021 many fermentation signs yet. I pitched two packs of yeast, so I was thinking things would start up quicker. Tilt says 1.050 at 52 degrees.9/13/2021 7:39:50 AM3386#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=21#comments day went well. 1.055 OG. Preboil gravity low but volume high. Compensated with dme. Pitched yeast at 9:50 am. 9/12/2021 8:53:27 AM3385#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=21#comments a tincture of the pumpkin pie spice and updated the recipe for the Foundry.9/10/2021 4:22:06 PM3384#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=95#comments Faux Pilsner Tettnang and Saaz. Pilsner-like beer fermented with Voss Kveik yeast.9/10/2021 2:10:21 PM191#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=191-09/10/2021 ingredients today. Brew day Sunday.9/10/2021 1:13:30 PM3383#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=21#comments Lima Mexican Lager ironically named "Bud Lite Lime". No bud. Not lite. No lime. Just a light colored lager with Perle and Saaz hops. Sessionable. Drinkable. Summer beer. Sin Lima.9/9/2021 8:02:16 AM174#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=174-09/09/2021 golden beer. Still has a nice orange flavor. Not much left. Yummy. ??9/2/2021 5:12:14 PM3382#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=41#comments perfect. Clarity just about ready to compare to Mexican Logger. Flavor is great. That saaz dry hop really gives a nice (almost) lime hint. I love this beer. 9/1/2021 4:30:50 PM3381#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=174#comments not quite ready, but close. I like the flavor. Maybe a bit more citrus on the finish than you'd expect from a pilsner, but honestly pretty close to how I like to brew some of my pilsner. Clarity no where close, but I have no added gelatin yet. 8/29/2021 2:34:57 PM3380#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=191#comments and carbonation getting there, but not quite there yet. That dry hop saaz really makes this fantastic. 8/29/2021 2:06:01 PM3379#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=174#comments the keg of Hail Storm, so I could keg NTS. 1.009 FG is right on target. Not as clear as I would like going into the keg, but not bad. Really like the sample flavor. Not really lager-like, but would make a nice pale ale. Need to taste when it's cold and carbed. 8/26/2021 7:12:14 PM3378#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=191#comments keg blew. Needed it for NTS, so this is a good thing. 8/26/2021 5:13:03 PM3377#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=92#comments says 1.004 at 81 degrees. Fermentation seems done. Might have to keg soon.8/26/2021 6:15:37 AM3376#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=191#comments says 1.005 at 83. Not much bubbling at all now. Still a thin layer of kraussen. Not sure when I'll keg this. Would like to see a little more clarity.8/25/2021 7:56:12 AM3375#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=191#comments chilling for a day. Added half a packet of gelatin in about half a cup of water. Will let it sit a few days before sampling again. 8/24/2021 5:45:53 PM3374#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=174#comments now. Carbonation about perfect. Nice gold color. Not real clear, but I wouldn't call it hazy. Nice hop flavor. I think the esters from Voss are very similar to the ones that come from the Lithuanian farmhouse.8/24/2021 5:44:45 PM3373#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=189#comments in tilt last night. It was already down to 1.010 at 89 degrees. This morning 1.008 at 84. Still lots of kraussen, but slowing down considerably. 8/24/2021 5:58:57 AM3372#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=191#comments with 1oz dry hops. 1.008 FG. Extra .5 gallons for Franken-beer. Great flavor. Chilling in beer fridge. 8/23/2021 7:03:55 PM3371#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=174#comments beer is gone. It didn't last long, but it was good while it lasted. Luckily, I have Sin Lima ready to keg now too.8/23/2021 7:20:12 AM3370#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=127#comments took off by late morning yesterday. Still going today. Temp strip says 84 this morning. I'm sure it will rise over the afternoon.8/23/2021 7:17:36 AM3369#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=191#comments day. Started at 5am. Did the water this morning rather than last night. Forgot the acid until about halfway through mash. 1.040 pre boil. 1.045 OG. Chilled to 86 at 9. In fermentor by 9:15. Cleaned up before 9:45.8/22/2021 8:52:45 AM3368#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=191#comments the keg. Nice and hoppy. Crystal clear. Perfect beer. 8/21/2021 5:02:21 PM3364#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=1#comments a pint. Not quite chilled yet and certainly not carbonated. Still very hazy. Great hop flavor and aroma. I feel like the voss strain has a very similar lemon pith flavor as the Lithuanian Farmhouse. Gonna like this beer.8/20/2021 3:35:56 PM3363#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=189#comments last night. FG was 1.007. Not real clear. I wonder if this is because of the low boiling rather than the yeast. The lallemand website says "Flocculation is very high producing clear beers without filtration or use of process aids". Maybe it just needs to cool down. Anyway, the flavor is good. Added in the dry hops. Looking forward to drinking soon.8/20/2021 7:28:43 AM3362#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=189#comments says 1.004 at 69 degrees. Thinking I'll keg this weekend.8/17/2021 8:46:39 AM3361#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=174#comments down. Krausen down. Overnight the temp strip dropped to mid-80's. Still very hazy, but improving. 8/17/2021 6:58:50 AM3360#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=189#comments last pint last night foamed up at the end of the pour in a way that makes me think I kicked this keg already. Bummer. I guess it was even more of a hit with my work people than I thought. ??8/16/2021 10:29:41 AM3359#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=127#comments, the kveik voss took off quickly. Day 2 still in the high 80's and the fermentation has already started slowing down. I don't have tilt in so I don't know how far it has attenuated.8/16/2021 10:21:55 AM3358#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=189#comments't take long for the voss strain to get going. How did I kill the Lithuanian yeast?8/15/2021 3:06:49 PM3357#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=189#comments to Ska's Mexican Logger. Color and clarity practically identical. TRaSh might have a bit more body and malt character. Its head is certainly thicker and longer lasting. Hop bitterness exact. Flavor very close. Mexican logger has more of that saaz character in the aroma. Interesting how close these are right now. 8/15/2021 3:04:26 PM3356#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=127#comments yeast wasn't doing anything after several hour up around 90. I went to The Brewhut and grabbed dry LalBrew Voss™. Pitched it. We'll see how it fairs.8/15/2021 1:44:55 PM3355#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=189#comments pitched 1 hour and 16 minutes after I woke up. 1.053 og. Went great, but a little hectic. 8/15/2021 6:45:01 AM3354#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=189#comments ingredients yesterday. Making starter tonight. Will also do an overnight mash. Brew day tomorrow.8/14/2021 5:32:39 PM3353#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=189#comments beer. So yummy. So beautiful. Not much left. 8/13/2021 5:40:01 PM3352#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=1#comments to a work function. It was a hit, but I had trouble maintaining the right gas pressure. Transporting brought haze back into suspension. 8/11/2021 6:18:06 PM3351#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=127#comments says 1.023 at 56 degrees. Anvil controller set to 55. Bubbling still going pretty good but slowing down from yesterday.8/11/2021 7:50:46 AM3350#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=174#comments going strong. Screwed up yesterday and forgot to change out ice bottles. Temperature got up to 57. I added ice and then set the controller to 54. Tilt now says 1.033 at 55 degrees.8/10/2021 7:21:58 AM3349#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=174#comments to start up, but starting to see signs of kraussen starting to form. Tilt says 53 degrees and gravity of 1.037.8/9/2021 8:37:09 AM3348#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=174#comments pale color. Perfect flavor. Carbonation getting close. Clarity almost there. Yummy. ??8/8/2021 4:02:47 PM3347#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=127#comments day went great. Up at 5am. Yeast pitched at 10am. OG 1.043. 8/8/2021 9:15:07 AM3346#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=174#comments yesterday. Got water ready last night. Brew day today.8/8/2021 4:04:27 AM3345#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=174#comments to get clear. Great French saison flavor. Nice hop flavor. 8/7/2021 6:16:52 PM3344#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=92#comments red color. Great hop flavor. Pretty dry. Nice. 8/7/2021 6:15:23 PM3343#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=1#comments ingredients yesterday. Need to make starter tomorrow. Brew day Sunday. 8/6/2021 4:18:25 PM3342#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=174#comments FG 1.008. Went in pretty clear. Great flavor. Got an extra gallon jug filled. Might have underfilled keg a bit. 8/4/2021 7:11:20 PM3341#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=127#comments to brew this weekend.8/3/2021 3:16:28 PM3340#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=174#comments still at 1.006.

Might let it sit for a bit.7/30/2021 4:46:16 PM3338#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=127#comments Rise orange flavor. Carbonation pretty much perfect.7/30/2021 4:44:22 PM3337#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=41#comments a great beer. Hoppy enough but not too hoppy. Malty enough, but not to malty. Perfect.7/30/2021 4:43:24 PM3336#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=1#comments off the temp control this morning when the temperature was at 59. Now Tilt is saying 1.008 at 62F. Not much bubbling. Will probably keg this weekend.7/26/2021 7:59:15 AM3335#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=127#comments says 1.010 at 59 degrees. 7/25/2021 9:10:00 AM3334#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=127#comments Needs more carbonation. 7/24/2021 4:16:49 PM3333#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=41#comments degrees. Tilt says 1.012. Bubbling slowing down.

Still bubbling pretty good.7/22/2021 6:38:13 AM3328#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=127#comments the Tilt batteries today, so I threw the Tilt in. Says 1.031 at 53 degrees. The temp matches the anvil controller exactly. Lots of kraussen on the beer at the moment.7/20/2021 2:33:38 PM3327#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=127#comments nicely at 52 degrees. 7/20/2021 5:58:06 AM3325#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=127#comments to see signs, but wouldn't say fermentation has started yet. Sitting at 50 degrees. If I don't see bubbling by mid-day, I'll raise temp a couple degrees. 7/19/2021 7:13:36 AM3324#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=127#comments day went well. 1.046 OG. Was able to get chilled to 57 before putting in fermentor and starting up the cooling system. Will pitch yeast a bit later.

Still a really big kraussen and vigorous fermentation, but it looks like it is already slowing down some. Tilt says 1.056 at 76 degrees. I don't think that is accurate.
