Not having had a hoppy brew on tap for a while (blasphemous, I know), I cobbled my system together to brew a batch of properly hopped Rye IPA from a recipe I heard a couple of people talking about (hint: recipe author's name rhymes with kenny donn ).

What's in your boil kettles this weekend?

I just finished brewing and american brown ale. Nothing fancy but my stock was running low. I split the ten gallon batch and pitched my last packet of Doric dry yeast into one of the carboys. Does anyone know what strain this is and if it is available from anyone else? Thanks.

I assembled a new mash tun today and was thinking about brewing tommorow but it looks like next weekend.
Other than that I transfered an India Red Ale to 2ndary and am contemplating dumping a batch of RyePA that went horribly wrong. The inner turmoil rages.

Just finished up a hefeweizen. My stock is dry due to a recent move and I need to get a quick batch through the fermenter, hence the hefe.

I bought a Mini Brew mash tun yesterday and tried it out this morning, along with my peristaltic pump. I did a 2 step mash with a mashout. The system worked great, except I was only getting about 1F/min temp rise on the steps. The mash temperatures were very consistent throughout the mash (+/1 1F). I recirculated constantly. I used two heads on the pump to do a hands off fly sparge. That was very easy.

More info that you wanted to know?

Friday I brewed 10 gal of hefeweisen, mowed the grass, and cleaned and sanitized 5 kegs. Whew! Split the batch between WLP300 hefe and the 380 hefe IV. The hefe IV definately throws some sulfer as they state. Never have used it before and haven't even brewed a hefe since going all grain in er 97 or 98. Not one of my more favorite styles but it seemed right for the summer. Plus I'm getting a little burned out on hoppy brews Ducking now.

Did my first double-batch AG this past FRI. A friend of mine is getting into the hobby, so during the first batch we converted his cooler, and used it as a MLT on the second batch. We also made up a very effective post-chiller... ground water here in TX is currently 80oF+, and initial pass-through the CCFC resulted in 95oF wort - not good! A jockey-box looking post-chiller is now SOP for all my brewing.

Oh, we made 10 gal. of Black Widow Kolsch (thanks Pacman, the first 10 gal. tastes promising!), and 10 gal. of a Goose Island Amber Ale clone.

BrewOn!
