I thought his BIAB set up was with a 25G kettle. That may be a bit big for 5g batches.


Yeah, 5 would be tough. 10 is probably fine. I could just get a smaller kettle, too.

make 10-15 gallons of base wort, split, and then steep different specialty grains in some of them.  boom! 2-3 beers for the price of one :D

Doing a festbier tomorrow.  I know, I'm late to the game...   But I have a ton of fresh H17 yeast I wanna keep rollin'.  

80/20 pils/munich   30 IBU's      OG 1.060, hopefully.

Cider day today. My wife has been picking our apples for the last couple weeks. We're gonna press them today and start fermenting. Hope to get 10 gal. In Nov. The crabapple tree will be ready so we'll make another batch then.

Pete, I've always said that a Festbier is too nice of a style to only have for a few weeks in the fall.  I have this Big Bark on tap right now which sort of served as my Oktoberfest over the last couple weeks.  But I also have a stab at Paulaner Oktoberfest Marzen cold and kegged and I made my standard festbier (65/35 pils/Munich 2 with one hop addition at the start of the boil) and that's waiting in the on-deck fridge too.  So I will have festbier for a LOOOONG time.  :lol:  Cheers.

The extract porter is almost carbed up.  Pretty good to my tastes, a bit more carbing will definitely do it some good but I can't complain at all with this beer.

Kegging 2 batches tomorrow and Tuesday (a rather big, 8% porter tomorrow and a clone of Great Lakes' Burning River Ale on Tuesday), then making this on Wednesday, an English IPA:

 

10lb Maris Otter

2lb Munich

0.5lb C-40

0.5lb wheat

 

2 oz Pilgrim (pellet), 90 min

2 oz First Gold (pellet), 10 min

1oz EKG (pellet), 5 min

1oz EKG (pellet), 20-min hopstand

 

Shooting for an OG of ~1.070 and ~60-ish IBU's for 5.5 gal going into the primary.

 

A fresh slurry of WY1028 London Ale will handle the heavy lifting in the primary.

Freezing the other 5 for juice.  I have no idea on the lb. per gal.  We don't do any measurement of how much we start with.

The extract SIPA turned out pretty nice, too. I think I can ride this extract brewing wave for a bit. :)
