I'll be brewing a fruity IPA this weekend as the replacement Cosmic Punch yeast arrived today. Time to look through my hop inventory for something interesting. I actually have quite a bit of homebrew on hand, all 4 taps are flowing with 2 kegs in reserve.

That's when I start getting concerned.  I'm having trouble finding time to keg 10 gallons and brew another 10.

Brewed a Belgian Tripel today. Way overdue. I altered my usual recipe and I'm calling this one "Golden Drunkey".

I brewed Sunday!  Wanted to use up a bunch of older hops.  Also trying out that newer dry New England yeast.  Oh yeah and I didn't boil. Went nice and smooth for not brewing for so long.  Here's what I ended up with.

It might not be Drez levels but it should get the job done!

LOL .. I think it maybe a bit more than I have been using.  I am sure it will be great.

made some Drez APA today.  some minor mishaps.  mill not feeding, mash temp a bit high (157F!!!) and some equipment I should have cleaned better (hot side) but probably fine.  oh yeah and I meant to add some chinook at 30 min that I forgot to weigh out so it got skipped.  otherwise things went fine and I'll have beer!

 

planning to dry hop this how I used to where I dry hop in the serving keg until it kicks :frank:

this finished up really quick so I'm kegging it today (1 week from brew day) after a few days of cold storage.

Gravity was down to 1.015 so I added the second can of concentrate. The extra sugar pushed the gravity up to 1.020 but after 6 hours or so, it's down to 1.012. I'll add more concentrate at kegging.

Early brewday! Didn't drink last night so I was up by 5:30. Doing a Baltic Porter again. It's mashing now, I should be done by 9-ish.

I'm using dry Lutra yeast for the first time. I pitched about 3 hours ago, not only has fermentation started but it's dropped 10 points already!
