It was a wonderful beer while it lasted. 3/5/2021 7:06:21 PM3172#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=185#comments Dave's Pale Lager brother-in-law Dave grabbed wild hops from his yard and let me have some. Making a beer to try these out.3/5/2021 8:51:19 AM165#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=165-03/05/2021 away a half growler today, and had to try a pint. Still fantastic. Still nice hop flavor along with the chocolate notes of the malts. Yummy. 2/28/2021 12:40:59 PM3171#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=30#comments 5:15pm ... 1.013 62 ... I unplugged the cooling pump. 2/27/2021 5:19:06 PM3170#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=174#comments drinking. Delicious. Lots of Munich malt flavor. Clarity is great now. Hope this lasts until at least Easter.2/27/2021 5:26:13 AM3169#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=153#comments looking nice and clear. I overcarbed last time I gave it a shot of CO2, but it seems to be ok with lower flow. Really nice beer.2/27/2021 5:25:13 AM3168#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=4#comments says 1.013 at 57. Turned up controller to 62, but will probably just unplug by the end of the day.2/27/2021 5:23:58 AM3167#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=174#comments says 1.015 at 55. Still bubbling a little. Bumping up a degree now. Will do it one more time later today if I remember. The controller still says 54, so maybe rising the temp won't really do anything. We'll see.2/26/2021 8:37:57 AM3166#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=174#comments even lighter. Tilt says 1.017 at 54. Bumping up the temp to 55. 2/25/2021 9:26:23 AM3164#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=174#comments Lima Mexican Lager ironically named "Bud Lite Lime". No bud. Not lite. No lime. Just a light colored lager with Perle and Saaz hops. Sessionable. Drinkable. Summer beer. Sin Lima.2/25/2021 9:23:07 AM174#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=174-02/25/2021 a little slower. Tilt says 1.018 at 53f. Anvil controller temp matches. Bumping up a three to 54. 2/24/2021 10:30:23 AM3163#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=174#comments 52. Bubbling strong. Bumped temp up to 53. 2/23/2021 7:23:25 AM3162#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=174#comments this morning. Tilt says 1.036 at 52. Turned up the controller to match the 52. I also added more water to cooler. 2/22/2021 7:12:33 AM3161#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=174#comments day started at 4:30. Went well. Pretty much done by 8:30. 1.042 OG. Fermentor in garage to start. Pitched at 52 degrees. 2/21/2021 8:34:14 AM3160#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=174#comments ready to drink. Nice blueberry flavor. 2/20/2021 4:37:29 PM3159#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=63#comments red ale. Nice and hoppy. Drinking like a session ale. Might not last long. 2/20/2021 4:18:55 PM3158#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=4#comments 6 cup starter. Will brew tomorrow.2/20/2021 2:31:17 PM3157#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=174#comments Dave's Pale Lager (previous batches) 4:25:03 PM179#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=179-02/19/2021 Life Crisis Hoppy Red Ale American amber. Big, bold, lots of hops. Brewed it up using Jamil's West Coast Blaster as sort of a basis of the recipe.2/19/2021 3:23:23 PM4#/recipes/quarter.aspx-02/19/2021 close. Nice blueberry flavor. 2/17/2021 7:14:36 PM3156#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=63#comments FG right at 1.010. Exactly what I remember QLC tasting like. Hops with a nice malt backbone. Beautiful red color. Chilling on my back patio. 2/16/2021 7:06:08 PM3155#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=4#comments ingredients yesterday. Spilled some grain when milling. I think I got most of it scooped up and into the bag.2/15/2021 9:07:12 AM3154#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=174#comments recipe .. but renaming to Sin Lima.2/14/2021 9:24:23 AM3153#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=174#comments Berry American Wheat trying Sweetwater's Blue, my wife asked me to make a blueberry wheat beer. This is it.2/13/2021 8:01:50 AM63#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=63-02/13/2021 about half (2oz) of the flavoring. 2/13/2021 7:51:43 AM3152#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=63#comments 1.008 FG. Nice purple color. Tastes like I think a Blueberry Wheat should taste. Chilling on back patio. 2/13/2021 7:33:48 AM3151#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=63#comments blew. Now I can keg Boo Berry Wheat. It was a delicious beer. 2/12/2021 8:20:27 PM3150#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=89#comments says 1.003 at 66. No way that is accurate. Took a tiny taste sample. Very yeastie, but the hop flavor seems good. Still think we're a week away from kegging. 2/11/2021 9:20:22 AM3149#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=4#comments another sample. Carbonation about right, so I turned down psi some. Gorgeous and delicious beer. 2/10/2021 1:23:40 PM3148#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=153#comments really slowed down. Just about stopped. Tilt says 1.007 at 69. I can't imaging 7 is all that accurate, but we'll see what I get once I take hydrometer reading. Not sure when I'll keg this beer. Probably at least 1 week from now.2/10/2021 12:27:25 PM3147#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=4#comments going strong. Tilt says 1.026 at 74. Will probably be down to FG in a day or two. 2/9/2021 7:38:19 AM3146#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=4#comments hard. Tilt says 1.064 (down 5) at 64. Smells like hops. 2/8/2021 7:01:44 AM3145#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=4#comments a sample. Almost no carbonation. Turned up psi to 20. Great flavor. Really really good. Reminds me of my award winning maibock. ??2/7/2021 4:15:20 PM3144#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=153#comments day went pretty well. Done cleaning up right around 9AM. OG right on. Maybe a bit high. Didn't make a yeast starter, so we'll see how things go.2/7/2021 9:10:25 AM3143#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=4#comments stopped. Kraussen gone. Still ugly purplish brown color. Not sure when a keg will open up. Will probably keg when one does. 2/7/2021 8:15:36 AM3142#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=63#comments the mash at midnight so I could start draining wort right when I got up. Heating to boiling starting at 6AM.2/7/2021 5:57:59 AM3141#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=4#comments Bock nice little bock recipe that I hope to enjoy during Lent.2/5/2021 3:52:47 PM153#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=153-02/05/2021 today. Awesome flavor. Beautiful color, but it looks a little lighter than the picture from before. Its clarity is even really good going into the keg. Mardi gras starts in 11 days. Should be ready in plenty of time.2/5/2021 11:09:46 AM3140#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=153#comments away. Ugly purple brown color. Weird looking kraussen. Temp strip at 64/66. Several more days to go. 2/3/2021 8:35:25 AM3139#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=63#comments has read 1.017 for 4 days now. 66 degrees today. I am ready to keg at any time. I actually have a keg free, but need to clean it. At this point ... the beer seems to be 6.9%ABV with an attenuation of 75%. Mardi Gras starts in 14 days. Will I be able to refrain from drinking before then? We'll see.2/2/2021 8:43:17 AM3138#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=153#comments ... Kraussen starting to form. Temp strip says 62. 2/1/2021 8:42:02 AM3137#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=63#comments with Girl Scout Thin Mints. Fantastic. 1/31/2021 6:56:05 PM3136#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=30#comments day today with the Beer Model. Everything went well. Added blueberry to fermentor. OG 1.044. 1/31/2021 4:30:20 PM3135#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=63#comments a side by side with Left Hand Milk Stout. Much different beers. The most obvious difference is the centennial hop flavor. To be honest, I much prefer Stouticus. 1/31/2021 2:54:02 AM3134#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=30#comments @60. Unplugged cooling system. 1/30/2021 6:20:28 AM3133#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=153#comments delicious. Both the rich dark malts and the citrusy hops coming through great. Beautiful thick head. Need to compare to Left Hand soon. 1/29/2021 4:36:31 PM3132#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=30#comments ... 1.017 @59. Not much bubbling. Will turn off temperature control either tonight or tomorrow. Took a sample. Nice flavor. A little sweet. Hoping for another couple of gravity points. Color is a little lighter than the picture from last year. 1/29/2021 1:28:47 PM3131#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=153#comments ... 1.024 @55F Still bubbling. I'm expecting fermentation will be done in the next couple of days. Set the anvil temp to 55. Later in day ... 1.019.1/28/2021 6:44:54 PM3130#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=153#comments says 1.034 at 54. Raising controller to 54. 1/27/2021 7:47:11 AM3129#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=153#comments says 1.053 at 53F. Typical lager bubbling. Will probably leave at 53 today. 1/26/2021 9:23:15 AM3128#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=153#comments says 1.060 at 53. Raising controller to 53. 1/25/2021 6:53:50 AM3127#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=153#comments the keg right before the nfc championship game. Such a great tasting beer to the end. Need to make this again. Go Bucs. 1/24/2021 1:13:59 PM3126#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=160#comments says 1.066 at 56. Cooling set to 52. A little bubbling. Signs of fermentation just starting. 1/24/2021 5:19:08 AM3125#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=153#comments day with Brew Model went pretty good. We measured low on pre-boil gravity and added .5 lbs to compensate. Then, ended up about that many gravity points high on the OG. Not sure what made the pre-boil gravity measurement low, especially with both of us checking. Anyway ... the wort is in the fermentor and the yeast is pitched. 1/23/2021 3:01:13 PM3124#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=153#comments up ingredients Monday. Brewing today or tomorrow. 1/23/2021 3:21:05 AM3123#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=153#comments is interesting how my perception of third beer changes at different times. Sometimes, the centennial hop flavor really comes through. Sometimes the lactose and rich malt hide there hops. It is always delicious, just different depending on my mood. 1/23/2021 2:16:30 AM3122#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=30#comments is perfect now ?? Such a delicious beer. I might have to think about reducing the abv next year to make it healthier to drink in quantity. 1/22/2021 3:28:17 PM3121#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=89#comments a pint. Great milk stout flavor with a touch of hop flavor. Needs more carbonation, but us really coming along. 1/18/2021 1:22:45 PM3119#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=30#comments beer. Still nice and hoppy. A bit too much foam at the moment. Almost gone. 1/17/2021 3:14:21 PM3118#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=160#comments Added half a pound of lactose. I think next time I make this, I'll add the lactose into the boil. Right now, this keg is chilling on my back patio.1/17/2021 8:23:24 AM3117#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=30#comments American Stout and roasty with coffee and chocolate notes and a fair amount of citrusy hops. A stout-lover's treat. Developed to share with the good people at FHS.1/17/2021 7:25:14 AM30#/recipes/fhs.aspx-01/17/2021 a sample for gravity. 1.016. Love the flavor. Not too much roast. Not sure it needs to lactose. Color isn't as dark as I think it should be. More of a dark brown than black. Not a big deal. Half a pound of lactose should be about right for the FG just above 1.020.1/17/2021 7:22:46 AM3116#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=30#comments blew tonight. 1/15/2021 7:16:01 PM3115#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=184#comments beer. Both the Beer Model and I love it. Nice clear golden color. Carbonation about perfect. Great vienna malt flavor. Just enough bitterness to balance the malt. Nice floral Hallertau hop in the finish. Wonderful. 1/15/2021 5:27:18 PM3114#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=185#comments clear beer now. Crystal hops have faded a bit. Perhaps some more rye flavor. Keg won't last through the weekend. 1/13/2021 7:38:07 PM3113#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=184#comments and gorgeous. Won't last too much longer. 1/13/2021 7:35:11 PM3112#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=160#comments beer. Beautiful black color. Carbonation pretty good, but not perfect yet. 1/13/2021 7:33:52 PM3111#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=89#comments Measured FG at 1.002, which is right at the tilt measurement. Flavor exactly what the black saison should be. Chilling on my back patio. 1/9/2021 1:03:24 PM3110#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=89#comments blew last night. Was great while it lasted. 1/9/2021 1:49:41 AM3109#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=181#comments drinking. Ditto previous comment ??1/8/2021 3:26:53 PM3108#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=181#comments really much bubbling, and there doesn't appear to be much yeast in suspension, but still lots of kraussen. 1/8/2021 2:14:03 PM3107#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=30#comments says 1.003 at 67 degrees. Not much bubbling. Ready to keg? Maybe. Don't have an empty one yet but maybe soon.1/7/2021 8:05:25 PM3106#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=89#comments says 1.006 at 68 degrees. Still bubbling. I expect I'll get another 2 to 3 points of attenuation. 1/5/2021 1:21:54 PM3105#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=89#comments fermentation. Nice healthy krausen. Beer looks less black than I would expect from a "Stout". We'll have to see how the color ends up.1/4/2021 2:03:27 PM3104#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=30#comments says 1.011 at 70. Still bubbling away. 1/4/2021 1:52:13 PM3102#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=89#comments drinking this a bunch. Beautiful golden lager. Nice clarity. Carbonation right there. Really delicious. Easily consumed by the liter.1/3/2021 6:50:56 PM3101#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=185#comments day went ok. There were issues. All good, though. OG right on plan. Fermentation going early evening. 1/3/2021 6:48:50 PM3100#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=30#comments says 1.030 at 71. Still going strong. 1/3/2021 8:03:55 AM3099#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=89#comments clear. Nice hoppy flavor. This beer wont last much longer. 1/2/2021 5:39:26 PM3098#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=181#comments Super crystal clear now. And even better tasting than I remember it last time I had it. 1/2/2021 5:12:03 PM3097#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=160#comments hard. Tilt says 1.049 at 71. 1/2/2021 7:45:57 AM3096#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=89#comments ready to drink. The Beer Model declared it "yummers". Nice malty lager. Really like the Vienna malt flavor. 1/1/2021 5:22:28 PM3095#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=185#comments day went well. Starting the mash last night didn't really buy me much time today. OG a bit high at 1.055. Got transferred to fermentor at about 80, then went for family hike. Got back and pitched. 1/1/2021 3:29:45 PM3094#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=89#comments at 6:30 using pump to help bring up to mash out. Collected 2 cups for a vitality starter. 1/1/2021 6:49:26 AM3093#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=89#comments mash a little before midnight. Going to bed now. 1/1/2021 12:04:15 AM3092#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=89#comments getting pretty good. Color gorgeous gold. Delicious beer. Just needs more carbonation. 12/31/2020 9:26:14 PM3091#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=185#comments keg blew on new years Eve. Yummy while it lasted. 12/31/2020 9:24:32 PM3090#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=182#comments ingredients today. Might brew this weekend, or it might be the following weekend. We'll see.12/31/2020 1:50:55 PM3089#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=30#comments the ingredients today.

Nice golden color. Pretty simple lager profile. None of the heavy caramel or Munich flavors of a marzen Just a touch of Hallertau hops in the finish. I think we're really going to enjoy this beer. 12/27/2020 6:29:55 AM3085#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=185#comments on Christmas. 12/25/2020 3:04:40 PM3084#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=182#comments a little sample. Cloudy but nice flavor. 1.010 at 67. 12/23/2020 3:45:41 PM3082#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=185#comments Great clarity. Good carbonation. Nice hoppy flavor. 12/22/2020 7:15:50 PM3081#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=160#comments says 1.010 at 67. Not much bubbling. I think this is pretty much done fermenting. I don't have an empty keg, but I think I will soon. The plan is to keg the 26th. 12/22/2020 8:42:19 AM3080#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=185#comments says 1.011 at 62.
