Brewed because the Beer Model (aka my wife) ordered me to do so.9/29/2019 6:51:58 PM95#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=95-09/29/2019 day today. Left the pumpkin out.

Should brew Sunday.9/27/2019 4:43:55 PM2606#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=97#comments says 1.010 70 degrees. Started to cool for cold crash. Once it gets cold, I will probably add gelatine. 9/27/2019 4:26:50 PM2605#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=160#comments last night and added some tincture. Gravity was a bit higher than I expected at 1.018. Flavor before tincture was nice. Have not tried after. Sitting at room temperature right now. 9/25/2019 4:46:54 AM2604#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=95#comments says 1.012 70 degrees. Added dry hop.

Setting the Anvil target to room temp.9/17/2019 5:16:31 AM2595#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=160#comments like maybe there are signs, but it might be pumpkin spice. 62 degrees. 9/16/2019 5:52:24 AM2594#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=95#comments 58. Last of ice in. Will let temp rise to room temp after it is gone. 9/16/2019 5:44:27 AM2593#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=160#comments day went well. 1.050 oh. Pitched at 60f.

Really nice beer. 9/14/2019 2:21:31 AM2590#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=159#comments says 1.030 at 56 degrees. Still bubbling pretty good.

Didn't seem to last long. Was a great beer, but gone now. Need to brew more. 9/12/2019 6:33:26 PM2588#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=92#comments the day, ice ran out. Temp up to 60. Added ice and set to 55. Still fermenting pretty hard9/11/2019 6:18:01 PM2587#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=160#comments at 1.047, 53 degrees. Been raising the Anvil set temp is 52. Will continue to rise temp slowly. 9/11/2019 6:34:53 AM2585#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=160#comments Calling the fg 1.016. Sample was nice and smooth. Chocolate. Nice touch of chocolate. Really looking forward to having this beer. 9/10/2019 8:13:09 PM2584#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=159#comments is rocking. Tilt says 1.053 (started at 1.061). 52 degrees. The anvil temp is much closer now that there is movement, and is set for 51 now. I've had to add ice more often than I thought I would, but the cooling system is really working great.9/10/2019 5:44:30 AM2583#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=160#comments signs of fermentation yet. Tilt 55. Anvil 48. 9/9/2019 6:03:16 AM2582#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=160#comments day went well. OG a bit high at 1.051, but that's ok. The Anvil cooling system seems to be working pretty well, but the thermo well is awfully close to the cooling lines. Tilt temp shows a few degrees warmer than the probe. Not a big deal. Will probably be closer once the fermentation starts moving the wort around. 9/8/2019 4:01:36 PM2581#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=160#comments yesterday. Brew day today. Mash started around 7:45. BBQ at same time smells Guuud. 9/8/2019 7:16:07 AM2580#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=160#comments the keg while grilling. Yummy beer. Will have to make this again for next year's #GCCUSA9/7/2019 3:25:45 PM2579#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=158#comments ingredients today. Starter tomorrow. Brew day Sunday. 9/6/2019 12:00:27 PM2578#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=160#comments is showing 1.017, which is the expected fg. I should be able to keg once an empty becomes available. 9/1/2019 3:32:26 AM2577#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=159#comments hop "juicy" and delicious. Less hazy, but not clear. Needs more carbonation. 8/29/2019 4:50:44 PM2576#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=117#comments on Saturday with dry hops in the keg. Shook in co2 on Tuesday and tried some. Very hazy and carb didn't really take. Letting this settle a bit, hitting it with co2 every couple days. 8/29/2019 4:35:06 AM2575#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=117#comments at 69. Fermentation seems to be slowing down. 8/28/2019 5:44:53 AM2574#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=159#comments nicely. Tilt says 1.044. 62 degrees. 8/26/2019 5:52:53 AM2573#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=159#comments day done. Tilt says 1.055. Refractometer says 1.049ish. 65 degrees. 8/25/2019 9:09:11 AM2572#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=159#comments pre boil gravity. Very close to the 1.042 expected. Right at 8 gallons pre boil. 8/25/2019 6:33:58 AM2571#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=159#comments changed last weekend and I didn't brew. Made a starter last night. Brewing today.8/25/2019 3:51:03 AM2570#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=159#comments says the gravity is 1.006. Pretty sure it isn't that low.

Blended it down with Hail Storm. Usually, I blend it more. 8/18/2019 6:20:31 PM2567#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=157#comments few weeks ago I brought the keg into work for happy hour. People really seemed to enjoy it.8/18/2019 4:30:33 PM2566#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=158#comments have some. Really nice beer. 8/18/2019 4:30:23 PM2565#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=158#comments ingredients today. Changed yeast to WLP013 London Ale. Also decided to go with another once of Cluster hops. 8/16/2019 12:36:28 PM2564#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=159#comments 73. Still going. 8/16/2019 3:18:46 AM2563#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=117#comments underway. 1.052. 65F. Nice kraussen.8/14/2019 5:30:46 AM2562#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=117#comments not real active yet. 8/13/2019 5:25:31 AM2561#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=117#comments driving home, I combined two little carboys into my bigger fermentor and put that in a gott cooler with ice water. Took awhile to get wort into 60's. Visual fermentation has not started yet.8/12/2019 5:43:19 AM2560#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=117#comments day today at Doc's house. Tilt OG 1.056. 8/11/2019 3:44:00 PM2559#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=117#comments beer. Well, duh. I made it ??????8/4/2019 5:41:05 PM2558#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=92#comments the Blood Orange Saison. 8/4/2019 4:29:27 PM2557#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=157#comments in the CO2. Obviously I had to try some. Very tasty. Yummy8/1/2019 7:09:12 PM2556#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=92#comments last night. FG 1.003. Also added some to BBD Mango Pale in hopes of reducing that mango flavor. Extra 2 gallons had a weird taste, but that doesn't come through in mango beer. 7/31/2019 9:04:11 PM2554#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=92#comments day today. Everything went well. OG ended up at 1.048. Tilt battery seems to be dead, so I am not monitoring this batch via Tilt.7/7/2019 12:10:20 PM2553#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=92#comments Storm Summer Saison (archive) 7:45:19 PM109#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=109-06/26/2019 a pint. It is a diet beer after all. Maybe a bit dry and thin, but delicious. Much better than a diet soda too. Great color. Good clarity. I might like a bit more carbonation, but good beer.6/26/2019 5:40:40 PM2552#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=158#comments today. Also put extra two gallons in the Frankenbrew keg. Calling this 1.006. 6/23/2019 6:26:56 PM2551#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=158#comments says I'm down to 1.006, which means I can keg whenever I enjoy one of my other beers. 6/8/2019 2:14:21 AM2550#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=158#comments day started around 5am. Got mash going and then went for bone ride. Added 11g calcium chloride to help with beer clarity. Will fill kettle and then go to church. Brew day will continue after I get back. 6/2/2019 6:06:40 AM2547#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=158#comments pour of Mango Pale. Maybe too much mango. 5/31/2019 6:11:26 PM2546#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=157#comments pour of the Blood Orange Saison. Delicious. 5/31/2019 5:30:33 PM2545#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=157#comments up the Blood Orange Saison. Since I had one more empty keg, I put the extra gallon of saison in that and dumped my growlers of wheat beer on tap. Not sure how that will turn out, but we'll see.5/28/2019 6:37:46 PM2544#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=157#comments, crap. Killed this keg. My Big Brew Day had a bigger affect on my existing beers than I thought. 5/24/2019 6:06:54 PM2543#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=105#comments up the Mango Pale Ale. Not a full keg. Maybe 4 gallons? Didn't take a gravity reading. Didn't taste it. I'm going to assume 78% attenuation, which would be 1.013 FG and a 5.9% ABV beer. Close enough for me. 5/24/2019 10:09:13 AM2541#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=157#comments the keg. End of a yummy beer. 5/19/2019 4:40:54 PM2540#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=155#comments blood orange to the saison. Turns out I must have messed up the calibration on the tilt. Tilt read 1.007, but I noticed that the un-calibrated FG was 1.000. I calibrated in water, and it looks like my beer finished right about at 1.001. Adding fruit raised the gravity to 1.004, which makes sense. Apparently this WLP590 is closer to 3711 than I thought. Love the flavor. Tastes like the 3711. Has enough malt flavor that I would not call it 1.000. Note ... I had almost a gallon left that I put into another vessel. Not sure what I'll do with that.5/18/2019 9:05:11 AM2539#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=157#comments Pale Ale to secondary on mango puree. Forget to take gravity reading ... but oh well.5/16/2019 8:15:34 PM2538#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=157#comments down to 1.008 and it is closer to that "done" look. I keep saying this, but I need to add mango to the Pale. Then, I'll add the orange to the saison. 5/16/2019 5:54:25 AM2537#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=157#comments at 1.010. Still hazy so I think it is still working. Hoping to add mango to pale ale. 5/14/2019 5:36:03 AM2536#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=157#comments saison is still working. 1.019 gravity. Still very hazy. Probably want to transfer the pale ale onto fruit soon.5/11/2019 6:42:59 AM2535#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=157#comments Blackberry Bam-a-lam. Blackberry in Bed Wheat. Pink tinge on the foam. Purple colored. Blackberry flavor and aroma. Not bad 5/11/2019 6:41:08 AM2534#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=156#comments ale has cleared out to the almost finished look. Saison keeps going. Currently at 1.031. Still hazy, but the kraussen is just about gone.5/9/2019 5:48:53 AM2533#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=157#comments continues to inch down. 1.036. Visual fermentation signs are going away. Temperature had been right at 70 the whole time. Right in middle of suggested range. Not sure if I should try adding more yeast or just let this do its own thing. 5/8/2019 5:27:07 AM2532#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=157#comments Seems to be slowing down. Tilt is showing 1.044. Thinking the WY3711 is better than this White Labs French Saision isn't as good as my regular Super Yeast. The Pale Ale is vigorous.5/6/2019 4:43:52 PM2531#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=157#comments think this is almost gone. Crystal clear. Intense Munich malt. Such a great beer. 5/5/2019 5:40:26 PM2530#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=153#comments strong this morning. Saison down to 1.047 already. 5/5/2019 6:18:29 AM2529#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=157#comments brew day with lots of people over. Think I got it all in ok despite many distractions. 5/4/2019 8:16:48 PM2528#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=157#comments is brew day and I remembered that I had not made a starter. Got it going around 5:30 or so.5/4/2019 4:17:21 AM2527#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=157#comments a couple. Good blackberry flavor. I think it would be nice to let some fruit settle out, but need for this weekend. This should work. 5/3/2019 6:28:35 PM2526#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=156#comments clarity. I really like the malt yeast combo. 5/3/2019 6:24:25 PM2525#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=155#comments great. 5/3/2019 6:22:49 PM2524#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=105#comments with 2.5 or 3 oz flavoring. Beer tastes pretty good for a BlackBerry beer. Bam a lam. Probably should have let the fruit settle more, but I'm hoping to drink Saturday for big brew day. 5/2/2019 6:41:01 PM2523#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=156#comments ingredients today. Looking forward to brew day. 5/2/2019 11:28:30 AM2522#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=157#comments airlock again yesterday.
