Ooo... that Czech Dark too. Im getting thirsty.

For real.  I'm gonna hit the taps here shortly.  Have you gotten back to brewing yet?  I know you had a drought.  How long has it been since you brewed?

Pete, first off... looks nice. Really nice. How did you incorporate the dark grains (I'm going to assume Carafa)? I ask because I have noticed two things with the low-oxygen brewing: 1) colors are more pale overall and 2) dark grains like carafa come through much more clearly in low-O2 beers. Those two ideas together make it tough to get such a dark beer without overwhelming the taste buds. Did you add the carafa late in the mash or something? Cheers.

 

Thanks, Ken.   This one turned out nice.   I've never had a Czech dark, so I can't comment on how "to style" it is.   :P

 

I used carafa 3 for the color and it was 8 oz for a 10 gallon batch.   I had it in the entire mash because I wanted a little roastiness, but not much.    I did do the late-mash addition of carafa for my dunkel to get the color and no roasty flavor.

I feel like 4 ounces of Carafa in 5 gallons would be quite "on the nose" but I haven't done it with any of my low oxygen beers.  I have made a few dark lagers, viennas, etc. but stuck with a lower amount (2-3 ounces) which came out fine but the color was more pale and I feel like the carafa was just much more pronounced than before the low-O2 steps were in place.  I did have a few Czech Dark Lagers at U Vejvodu and U Fleku in Prague.  They're darker and more opaque than a Munich Dunkel but they're delicious.  Cheers.

May I just say, said Dort I posted above pairs nicely with wings. 

 

I had a tall pint w/ the wings I posted the other day in the PH with some homemade lo mein.  Nice pairing.

I have a 10 gallon bourbon barrel from a local distillery; aged a RIS, and a barley wine in it last year. it sat empty for too long, and had to resurrect it from the dead. I made 10 gallons of a Pre-Prohibition Porter for a long term project with said barrel; taking a solera approach. I withdrew 5 gallons last week, and will refill it next week. 

 

the recipe is 67% Marris Otter, 14% Amber malt, 14% Brown malt and 5% black malt, a small bitter charge of horizon at 60 minutes, fermented with Wyeast 1318. 

 

It sat in the barrel for about a month. Its a full bodied, very roasty porter, but with no harsh acrid notes; plays well from the esters from the yeast. the barrel adds toasty oak, vanilla and a touch of a tabacco note; which i can only guess is from the wood. really digging this beer.

Looks great!   Nice green grass too.    I'll post the kellerbier in the recipes.   Sorry it took so long.   Between work and my internet getting fried by a lightning storm, I've been offline a lot.
