Nice flavor. Simple easy to drink. A little hazy, but I'm sure it will clear up as it gets cold.12/4/2020 5:57:20 PM3055#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=184#comments X-Mas Ale 2020 version of SheppyBrew's X-Mas ale. This year the beer includes a little chocolate extract and peppermint leaves. Merry Christmas.12/4/2020 5:54:15 PM182#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=182-12/04/2020 combination of chocolate and peppermint. Thin mint. 12/4/2020 5:52:00 PM3054#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=182#comments and clarity perfect right now. Even the flavor is pretty good for a pumpkin spice beer. ??12/4/2020 4:53:37 PM3053#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=95#comments is awesome. Perfect Mexican lager. I feel like I need this beer on tap 100% of the time. 12/4/2020 3:42:14 PM3052#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=174#comments 1.009 at 56. Going to turn up the temp to 60 over the rest of the day. 12/4/2020 8:41:05 AM3051#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=160#comments keeps getting more and more beautiful.

Bubbling strong still. 12/1/2020 6:54:32 AM3047#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=160#comments says 1.048 at 52. Bubbling has started. Controller still set at 50. Hope to see gravity fall by end of day. 11/30/2020 6:45:17 AM3046#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=160#comments Eric Double IPA of the homebrew 6 pack inspired by Deviant Dale's IPA.11/29/2020 3:34:13 PM181#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=181-11/29/2020 a look at my photo of Deviant Dales, and the clarity looks the same. Color of this beer is more golden than the red of DD. I think just a couple of SRM would make these visually match exactly. Taking photo for website. 11/29/2020 12:28:09 PM3045#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=181#comments Gartenzwerg Pilsner gnome German Pilsner. 11/29/2020 10:25:11 AM160#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=160-11/29/2020 day went well, but my starter never did anything. Have to head to lhbs for fermentis yeast. Also realized that I didn't get all there hips for this beer. OG right at 1.048. Preboil gravity was high and I diluted with .5 gallons water. 11/29/2020 9:10:54 AM3044#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=160#comments about perfect. 11/28/2020 5:31:12 PM3043#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=181#comments starter. 6 cups water with 1.5 cups dme. 11/28/2020 6:05:49 AM3042#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=160#comments keep thinking this keg is going to kick. Nice ruby red color. Clear. Malty. Seems much richer than the 1.004 FG. Yummy beer. ??11/27/2020 5:32:03 PM3041#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=180#comments think this is ready to keg whenever one comes free. Pale color. Decently clear. Nice aroma from air lock. 11/27/2020 5:25:25 PM3040#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=184#comments Lite Lime bud. Not lite. No lime. Just a light colored lager with Perle and Saaz hops. Sessionable. Drinkable. Summer beer.11/27/2020 3:26:19 PM174#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=174-11/27/2020 up ingredients today. Brew day Sunday11/27/2020 3:21:39 PM3039#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=160#comments to the beer fridge and added gelatin. Certainly has the bitterness of an old-school double ipa. I think flavor matches closely to how I remember Deviant Dales. 11/25/2020 1:36:33 PM3038#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=181#comments last night. Added in other half of dry hops. Chilling on back patio for now. Still hazy. Color more golden than the reddish color I remember from Deviant Dale's. 11/25/2020 1:58:06 AM3037#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=181#comments one for a picture. Clarity better. Carbonation is actually pretty good. I'm liking the peppermint a little better too. Nice beer.11/24/2020 3:25:24 PM3036#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=182#comments in the Pancho Keg Cooler. Tried a pour. Doesn't need any more peppermint. Pretty cloudy right now. 11/22/2020 11:36:32 AM3035#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=182#comments day went well. Preboil gravity was high, so I diluted with .5 gallon. OG right on at 1.040. Turns out hydra does fit... just real tight. Wort into fermentor was very full of trub. Yeast pitched around 9am. Cleanup done by 9:40. 11/22/2020 9:43:25 AM3034#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=184#comments done. Tilt says 1.008. Samples clearing up some, but still hazy. Still really nice hop flavor. 11/22/2020 8:42:28 AM3033#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=181#comments day today. Mash started around 5:20. Timer was set to begin around 4am. Probably should have started it sooner or left it inside for preheat. Oh well. It's going now. 11/22/2020 5:26:57 AM3032#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=184#comments 1.014 FG puts this beer at 7% ABV. Didn't get a whole lot of peppermint or chocolate. Added the rest of the chocolate flavoring and most of the rest of the peppermint leaves.11/21/2020 4:49:50 AM3031#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=182#comments for fun, I took a little sample out of the spigot. Very cloudy with trub, but extremely aromatic with the hops. Think I'm really going to like this beer once it settles. 11/20/2020 8:10:08 PM3030#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=181#comments Delicious. Pretty sure this beer won't last long. The Beer Model likes it too. I had to chastise her for taking some of this instead of her pumpkin beer. 11/20/2020 6:05:35 PM3029#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=174#comments ingredients at Tom's Brew Shop. 11/19/2020 5:02:42 PM3028#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=184#comments and fairly fizzy at this point. Clarity is better, but not quite where I want it. I think it may clear up more over next few days. Great flavor. 11/18/2020 7:00:25 PM3027#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=174#comments 1.5 oz of Columbus hops into fermentor in my hop sleeve. Not sure if I'll get "bio-transformation" at this point. I guess we'll see how hazy this comes out. I wasn't scheduled to keg this for another week, but I might get it done sooner.11/18/2020 11:12:30 AM3026#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=181#comments says 1.010 at 74 degrees. Still bubbling, but much slower. I'll probably want to add dry hop charge today. 11/18/2020 8:38:18 AM3025#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=181#comments says 1.038 at 75. Still bubbling strong. Another couple days for first dry hop charge. 11/17/2020 7:27:21 AM3024#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=181#comments away in the morning. Tilts says 1.073 at 65 degrees. 11/16/2020 8:03:37 AM3023#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=181#comments blew ?? Wonderful beer. Didn't last long. I was correct that it wouldn't last the weekend. 11/15/2020 6:30:16 PM3022#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=97#comments geletin. 11/15/2020 10:58:00 AM3021#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=174#comments day went well, but my mash efficiency wasn't where it should have been. Ended up adding 12oz of DME to get close to predicted OG. Temperature at the top of the mash was pretty low compared to at the Foundry sensor. I probably need the re-circulating pump. Anyway ... got 6 gallons in the fermentor at about 1.070 OG.11/15/2020 10:46:13 AM3020#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=181#comments up ingredients yesterday in the morning. In the evening Filled the foundry with 8 gallons and set timer. Brew day today. 11/15/2020 12:43:03 AM3019#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=181#comments Clearer than the spigot samples I took, but still will need to give it some gelatin. FG came out at 1.010. Filled 3/4 of a gallon jug in addition to the keg. I like the flavor. I think the hops come across better than my samples from the fermentor, but still not quite as much saaz hop flavor as I was hoping for. I think next time I make this, I'll add more hops. 11/14/2020 8:34:16 AM3018#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=174#comments on this is great now. The keg is getting light. Probably won't last through the weekend. 11/13/2020 3:19:05 PM3017#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=97#comments is gone. Put about 1/3 of an ounce into a tea ball and popped it into the fermentor. Will see how this tastes when I keg (scheduled for a week and a half). Depending on taste test, I might add some to keg as well.11/13/2020 10:53:25 AM3016#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=182#comments Autumn Ale the Lithuanian yeast in basically the base of Will-o-wisp.11/13/2020 8:41:43 AM180#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=180-11/13/2020 sample from the spigot. Not as cloudy, but still hazy. Flavor is awesome, although I would like a bit more saaz flavor. 11/11/2020 11:40:11 AM3015#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=174#comments to put in blow off tube, but it ended up not needing it. Still some bubbling, but kraussen almost gone. Temp strip says 68. 11/11/2020 9:45:26 AM3014#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=182#comments a tiny sample out of spigot. Very cloudy. Flavor is good despite the yeast soup I got. Hopefully yeast will continue to settle between now and kegging. 11/9/2020 3:19:34 PM3013#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=174#comments really high. Fermentation temperature at 74. Will probably want to put in blow-off tube soon.11/9/2020 8:35:41 AM3012#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=182#comments is better. Falling Leaves and Lithuanian Farmhouse are even closer now. Not able to get 100% on self-administered "blind" triangle tests. There is a subtle difference, which I think is mostly hops.11/9/2020 8:33:36 AM3011#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=180#comments drinking this a bunch. The keg is already starting to feel light. Probably won't last much longer. 11/9/2020 8:31:31 AM3010#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=97#comments seems to be done. Tilt says 1.008 68 degrees. Will keg by the end of the week.11/9/2020 8:30:38 AM3009#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=174#comments is going this morning. Adding 2 oz of chocolate flavoring.11/8/2020 6:31:37 AM3007#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=182#comments day went pretty well. OG at 1.067. Started around 8:30 and ended around 12:30. Not bad. Will add chocolate once fermentation starts. 11/7/2020 1:07:05 PM3006#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=182#comments starter yesterday. Also added water in foundry and set timer to start heating around 5am. Learn to homebrew day today, so I need to wait for the BeerModel to get up. 11/7/2020 5:15:34 AM3005#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=182#comments says 1.009 at 57 degrees. Disconnected pump. Not much bubbling now. 11/6/2020 6:43:59 AM3004#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=174#comments Dave's Pale Lager (previous batches) 4:56:44 PM179#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=179-11/05/2020 at 54. Set anvil to 55. I will probably turn off cooling later today. 11/5/2020 7:37:33 AM3003#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=174#comments says 1.023 at 53. Still going strong. Raised set temp to 54. 11/4/2020 5:43:06 AM3002#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=174#comments a couple days ago. FG at 1.004. The sample really reminded me of Falling Leaves saison. Today, I did a blind taste test on myself. Was able to tell the difference, but the carbonation on this beer is still low, so that might have been the difference. 11/3/2020 3:52:49 PM3001#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=180#comments let me know that the keg blew on Sunday. Honestly, this was a great beer while it lasted.11/3/2020 3:36:22 PM3000#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=176#comments says 1.035 at 52. Bubbling away. Raising temp to 53. 11/3/2020 6:17:53 AM2999#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=174#comments day went fine. It was nice getting up to having the strike water at the right temp. Getting to boil took quite awhile. My brew house efficiency was better than expected. OG 1.042. No signs of fermentation yet. Anvil set to 52. 11/2/2020 7:23:30 AM2998#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=174#comments blew. Great while it lasted. The last glass was still nice and hoppy. 10/31/2020 5:01:12 PM2997#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=100#comments Anvil Foundry with almost 8 gallons of water. Set it to start heating to 160 starting around 3am. 10/31/2020 3:12:09 PM2996#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=174#comments says 1.000 at 68. I think I can keg anytime now. 10/30/2020 10:54:23 AM2995#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=180#comments up ingredients on Wednesday. Made starter on Thursday. Will be brewing this weekend.10/30/2020 8:43:48 AM2994#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=174#comments at 68. Curious to see how low this goes. 10/28/2020 5:47:29 AM2993#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=180#comments says 1.012 at 69. Good to see gravity continue to fall despite lowering temps. 10/27/2020 5:59:46 AM2992#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=180#comments says 1.032 at 76 degrees. Kraussen already starting to fall. Hope I don't regret using this yeast at lower temps. We'll see. 10/25/2020 9:43:30 AM2991#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=180#comments day went awesome at Doc's house. 1.051. It will be interesting to see how this garments out at lower temps. 10/24/2020 6:06:58 PM2990#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=180#comments up ingredients Tuesday. Made starter last night. Brew day tomorrow. 10/23/2020 2:02:56 PM2989#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=180#comments FG 1.004. As always, I love the sample. Great French saison yeast flavor with the Munich malt base. So yummy. 10/22/2020 5:32:45 PM2988#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=97#comments says 1.000 at 69. Should keg soon. 10/19/2020 8:25:27 AM2987#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=97#comments says 1.002 at 69.

Hoping for a few more point on the FG. 10/16/2020 1:15:12 PM2985#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=97#comments says 1.023 at 71 degrees. Airlock still bubbling. May be slowing down some. 10/14/2020 6:49:59 AM2984#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=97#comments took off last night sometime. Going strong now. Tilt says 1.040. 71 degrees. 10/12/2020 6:20:05 AM2982#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=97#comments blew tonight. This was a nice beer to have on tap. Not sure I'm ready for it to be gone. 10/11/2020 5:34:01 PM2981#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=177#comments day went well. Started at around 4am. Done before 8am. 1.054 OG. 10/11/2020 6:52:20 AM2979#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=97#comments ingredients today. Whoever packed my order forgot the 2nd page of the order. Good thing I decided to check. 10/9/2020 2:47:10 PM2978#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=97#comments Beer Model says she doesn't want more spice in the beer. I'm surprised, but am glad. 9/30/2020 7:19:39 PM2976#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=95#comments ... I like this beer, but I think I'd like it more without the wild hops. Sort of wish I had two batches one with one without to compare to make sure I know what I'm getting from Dave's hops. Clarity is improving, but still not crystal clear. Carbonation is about perfect.9/30/2020 2:25:10 PM2975#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=165#comments looks good. Turned off the gas. I like the level of pumpkin pie spice which probably means it isnt enough for the Beer Model. We'll see what she says. 9/29/2020 8:20:47 AM2974#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=95#comments a decent amount of ice in the keg cooler. Added gelatin. 9/27/2020 9:04:05 AM2973#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=165#comments Calling the FG 1.016 ... right on plan. The base beer is delicious, but not much pumpkin spice. Added about a tablespoon of tincture to the keg, but not sure that will be enough. I'll chill and ask the Beer Model if she wants more.9/27/2020 8:51:43 AM2972#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=95#comments'-Wisp Pumpkin Ale world-famous pumpkin ale.
