I lurk here and there but haven't had the time to chime in. I took a new position at work that's keeping me busy. Yesterday was my first brew of 2019
Let me make a guess... first chair oboe. Woodwinds are tricky. Glad to have you back...
LMAO. I'm actually a drummer but 1st chair was always my jam! That gig was so much better than the Supervisor position I took a few months ago.
Supervising... Another way of saying... herding kittens? I got 13 months left of work... One last supervising job and I want to be a hat rack ... coast into brewing more beer!! Sneezles61
Brewed up Off The Topper yesterday and Plinian Legacy last weekend. All hail summer!
Spot on @sneezles61! 13 months will fly by, you're a lucky guy. No way will I ever see retirement unless I hit the lottery.
Hey @radagast I'm coming to the Burgh again this weekend. Gonna hit some releases and go to the festival in Swissvale
Sounds like a fun weekend! If you have spare time I highly recommend shooting over to Dancing Gnome, one of my favorites in the city.
Let us know when the party is!
You bet! Hitting their release for sure and maybe Hitch hiker if time permits. They'll both be at the fest!
Just kegged the Citra/Medusa NEIPA. Nice light color to it and some dank citrusy aromas. I might be on to something with those neo-mexicanus hops.
Finally got my Octoberfest in last weekend and a different NEIPA in as well. Trying to figure out what’s next.
Just bottled my Loral Cryo Hop IPA and it's a bit too floral... I'm hoping it ages out a bit.
Brewing a Belgian IPA tomorrow. A blonde ale last week. And I still have mt Festbier to get done.
Just kegged up my plum gose. Not sure if I can call it a gose since I didn't add any salt in which case I will call it a plum Berliner Weiss
Nuttin honey... Next W/E I'll have some time... Should get an IPA into the mix...now that I have the NW coast yeast to try out.... Sneezles61
I’m trying to come up with a Belgian Single that falls short of a double strength but not too low. Right now I have a recipe that is mostly Pilsen and a smidge of wheat and Special B. I’d like to step mash and get a really low FG but I’m trying to get a bit of maltiness from the Special B. I dunno I guess I’m going to fall outside style color
When you u home brew, you don't have to conform... It's your brew, tweak it as you like... Isn't that the American take on it? Sneezles61
That’s not what various monks have been telling me. Or maybe I misunderstood because they were communicating non verbally
Drink it an opaque glass! 🤣 Its all good man.
My Abby Ale (single) came out just as planned 1.051 OG with a stepped mash. Wyeast 3787 was my final choice of yeast.
