    Showed a buddy how to brew yesterday (Mirror Pond Pale Ale clone pictures a few posts above). Didn't get any pics but this one because I was busy the whole time. Just got a text from him saying the airlock is going wild!

    He fried his turkey this year so we cleaned the shit out of his pot and used his setup for the boil.

    Very cool! We brewed an English Style old Ale last month. It is currently bottle conditioning and should be ready in a few weeks.

    My buddy and I wanted to change it up a bit so we went about 10% Rauche Malt for some smokey bacon aroma, and added some maple Syrup for a slight maple sweetness at the back end.

    Because my buddy was visiting from Australia we called it "A Bogans Breakfast"

    I was happy with the results before bottling, I cannot wait for it to age some and really come into its own.

    What's your latest homebrew?

    Bottling my first brew today. It is a Honey Porter and I made a few mistakes. Mainly over boiling and came up short. I'm doing small batch 1 gallon stuff to start until I get the hang of it. Also today I'll be brewing a Chinook IPA. Gonna focus in controlling the boiling temperature more !!! Happy brewing!

    The first 2 will be ready by X-Mas...the ORIS 'might' be ready (fingers crossed)

    My Steam Beer is currently bottle conditioning. I can not wait to try it .
    I made it with a lot of vienna and 2-row, the flavor from the last sample I took before I bottled it was encouraging.

    I brewed up a Pliney clone last weekend. It's now in secondary, after only four days in primary. It has another six days in secondary, then I'll bottle it and let it sit for a month.
    I also have a hard cider fermenting. It should be about done.
    I have a keg full of Vanilla Bourbon Stout sitting around. My wife really likes that one, it's a bit too sweet for my likes.

    Single Hop Citra DIPA is a winner (from my perspective)...will put that one into some local competitions and see if my taste buds are sane or crazy.....

    Currently enjoying my ORIS blend (Oatmeal Russian Imperial Stout)....surprisingly good.

    Have an Amarillo single hop IPA in the queue...along with my first stab at a Belgian Strong Dark Ale (which will take about a year).

    My RIS has been bulk conditioning for 3 months...will pop in the oak cubes I've had soaking in port for the last 9 months soon and let it sit for another 4 weeks before a 6 month bottle condition....

    I just finished my first 1 gallon batch yesterday! I have been staring at the fermenter for a good chunk of the day watching it bubble.

    Good, finished bottling it today. Had a slight mishap with the bottle capper, on bottle #2 the capper broke into 4 different pieces. Long story short I had to wait a day to get to a local home-brew shop to get a new one. The batch is probably funky now, but since it was a 1 gallon batch, the beer stayed in the carboy and I just reinstalled the airlock once the capper broke. Restarted the bottling process the next day. So, hoping for the best, but I am assuming it is not going to be too great.

    I bought the gear from Northern Brewer, and after a quick email to them they have a new capper and another 1 gallon ingredient kit coming my way for free. Great customer service from those folks!

    Not all is lost though, I have a barley wine in another fermenter that will be bottled next week or so, hoping for smooth bottling!

    Latest projects this winter.

    Galena, Fuggles, and Spalt (not shown...still puny). 10 days from putting em in soil.



    Strong golden ale with WLP570...the east coast "saison" strain with brett B...excited.


    Also have a Braggot carbing in keg, and a 1776-style porter ala "Radical Brewing". Planning a jasmine pearl green tea IPA and an electric kettle to upgrade batch size to 10-15 gal comfortably...watching for boilovers on stovetop is getting old.

    Too many friends and bike events to go to this year...

    My buddies and I got to enjoy our latest homebrew during the superbowl. It was fantastic.
    Very hoppy/floral aroma Pale Ale that has a nice citrus flavor and finishes with a hoppy bite at the end.

    Tasted my Bohemian Lager after the diacetyl rest. It was pretty good, and a high alcohol content for a lager too. ABV 6.8%. That'll give it a kick while you think you're drinking a lighter beer.

    Re: What's your latest homebrew?

    I brewed an Old Ale I put together for a blending project I'm participating in with a local homebrew club. We each brew an ale in a given style. (Style and target gravity is specified.) We each contribute 1 gallon after fermentation, blend it, bottle it, and share it. Looking forward to the results of this one.

    Oaked for a couple weeks in the secondary, so it'll only have hints of oak. Used a can of Lyle's Black Treacle in the boil as well.

    Probably going to brew a Wee Heavy next for another blend.

    Got an oatmeal stout hanging out in the primary right now. I did something a little different and added a little brown sugar, and honey to the boil.

    Happy to...

    This was actually brewed in conjunction with Counter Culture Coffee for their annual corporate meeting held down in Raleigh, NC. The coffee used was a specific small batch from Ethiopia, which is a fairly delicate roast, with dark berry flavors/aromas. The reason I say all this, is that I built the recipe around the coffee profile, so even though it's a fairly robust stout...the coffee-chocolate flavors/aromas from the malt base is low, as to not over power the adjunct flavors. I would suggest using a Sumatra or Kona coffee blend, to get full flavors required for a Java Head clone.

    6Gallon
    60min mash @ 151 (single infusion)/mash out at 170
    90min Boil
    WY 1056
    8-8.5% ABV

    73% 2-Row
    9.5% Flaked Oat
    4.5% Biscuit
    4.5% Crystal 80L
    2.5% Black Patent
    2.5% Chocolate Malt
    .5% Crystal 120L
    .5% Special B

    1.15oz Nugget First Wort
    .75oz Columbus 60min
    .35oz Nugget 60min
    .75 oz Cascade 30min
    .75oz Columbus 10min

    1oz Cocoa Nobs KO/Whirlpool
    2oz Coffee (rough grind) KO/Whirlpool

    O.G. 1.075-1.080
    F.G. 1.011-1.016

    Secondary @ +/- 7 days (assuming target gravity is achieved) on 2oz cocoa nibs.
    Aged on nibs +/- 14 days.

    At kegging/bottling, add 50g cold-pressed coffee (2g coffee to 1oz H2O ratio, 24 hour cold-press), and 2oz lactose sugar.

    Carb to 2.0-2.2 CO2/volume.

    If you have any questions as to the specifics of any of the steps, let me know.
    Cheers!

    I just started drinking a Weisbier I kegged a few weeks ago. It's from a kit and it's a bit more malty than I like. We might get something else going soon. We have a pair of pony kegs and we'd like to time it so one if finished carbonating right when the other one is finished being drank.

    Rye IPA with amarillo, simcoe and columbus. Not bad at all, but might increase the late hops even more next time round.

    That's a sweet looking set up!! I've gotta get around to upgrading my ghetto set up some day, lifting pots and brewing on the garage floor sucks. No idea how/what to upgrade it to though, many of the experienced guys I know have ditched their three-tier set ups in favour of BIAB for the sake of speeding up brew-day, and still make some amazing beers.

    I brewed an Irish stout that is similar to Guinness. That has been brewing and conditioning for 4 months. And my buddy brewed a wheat beer, similar to hoegarten, over the past few months and we are going to transfer them into growlers with a 50/50 mix and have a Black and Tan, similar to Mississippi mud. Why we are going through all this trouble you ask? Because we are going on a 10 day mountain bike trip, culminating at Dirt Fest. Be jealous.

    Speaking of saison, I've just cracked opne one of my Citra Saison, made with the Danstar Belle Saison yeast and plenty of citra hops. When I first tried it after a month in the bottle I loved it because it had that massive fruity citra kick, then next time I didn't really like it, now after 4 months in the basement it's starting to get that tart mouth-puckering saison bitter/dryness and it's awesome. Looking forward to seeing how it develops!

    And at 8.8% it's too easy to drink, I get the feeling it's going to be one of those sneaky strong ones that goes down like water and then creeps up and knocks you flat.

    Ive got a Blind Pig clone i did with WLP 090 but wasnt really happy with how it turned out. Ive brewed this clone alot better in the past. Also have a Tasty McDole APA on tap that is pretty damn good. A West Coast Red Ale dry hopped with Citra is ready to keg and a Nate Smith's (Brewing Network ) Dankness 1.068 IPA featuring Apollo, Summit, Simcoe and Citra is bubbling away as i post this. Going to be brewing a saison this weekend and a Janets Brown Ale in a few weeks

    I did 5 gallons of saison and 5 gallons of a Jolly Pumpkin Bam Beire clone, should be ready next weekend.
    Wow! Does that thing run on a flux capacitor? 2.21 gigawatts? That's quite the setup, very cool!

    I haven't been brewing lately, not since late 2013. I will get the bug soon though.

    Great contributions everyone, keep them coming!

A West Coast Red Ale dry hopped with Citra is ready to keg and a Nate Smith's (Brewing Network ) Dankness 1.068 IPA featuring Apollo, Summit, Simcoe and Citra is bubbling away as i post this. Going to be brewing a saison this weekend and a Janets Brown Ale in a few weeks
    I love Blind Pig! Also a huge fan of Racer 5... Welcome to MTBR!
