I'll be drinking a Leinies Apple Spice.... yeah right.

I might have to keg my 1493 (all columbus) Pale ale (? maybe it should to be called an American IPA) tonight so I can have that ready for tomorrow night. If I don't I'll be drinking Point Cascade Pale Ale.

Sadly, it will be all commerical brews and wine for me this year. My CO2 cashed out last night and when I went to get it refilled they told me I had to get it recertified before they could fill it. So, I won't be having any of the APA or cider that I had been planning. Oh well, at least I don't have to travel.

My pumpkin brown ale - is being forced carbonated as I type. That will be the main attraction followed by some New Glarus raspberry and Tart Cherry for desert.

Haven't had a chance to brew in the last few months, so it'll be SNCA-03, Bigfoot-05, DFH 60 minute IPA, Trois Pistoles and La Fin Du Monde. I also just put a few bottles of my homebrewed Cranberry Melomel in the beer fridge. Happy Turkey Day!

I've got two choices.

I made a cranberry relish beer -- an extract honey wheat beer racked onto cranberry relish made from cranberries, Navel oranges and Granny Smith apples. It's nicely tart and has a great aroma (if you like cranberry relish) and I've carbonated it to about 3.0 volumes of CO2. More "alcoholic fruit drink" than beer, I'll admit, but I like it. I'm bringing the keg to dinner.

I've also got the "official" batch of BYO 10th Anniversary Ale (an imperial American stout) kegged and carbonated. I made 10 gallons this from around 50 lbs. of grain. It took an 8 hour boil to get the volume down from 23 gallons of wort collected to 10 gallons of wort to ferment. (It was 115 F on my porch that day, BTW.) This is a big beer (~10% ABV), but goes down very smoothly because of the balance (perhaps too smoothly). I'm going to CP bottle a couple "bombers" to bring with me for an after dinner drink for whoever's interested.

Happy Thanksgiving !

I was going to take a couple of growlers of my Bugeater Dunkelweisen to Thanksgiving dinner, but, unfortunately, I pulled the last pint off the keg this afternoon. My brown ale hasn't conditioned long enough (still a bit rough) nor have my freshly kegged Victory IPA, Rye Cream Ale, or Dunkelweisen (I did do a second one before finishing the first). Digging around, I have come up with a couple bottles of hard cider and a couple bottles of blackberry cyser. I did pick up a bottle of a commercial beer this afternoon, a Monty Python Holy Grail Ale. This sounded wierd enough to be interesting. Should be a fun day. Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

Let us see...

Wilma Brown Ale - brewed sunday night about 4 weeks ago (10/23/05)as Hurricane Wilma came ashore 150 miles south of here. A nice American Brown ale...23 SRM, 59 IBU, 1.067 OG, 1.014 FG, 7.0 ABV....lots of cascade and centennial hops. US56 dry yeast.

Duff's Export - I guess you would call it an imperial hard water pilsner brewed with an ale yeast. All sterling hops...5 SRM, 27 IBU, 1.067 OG, 1.008 FG, 7.8 ABV. US56 dry yeast

Katrina's Imperial Stout - brewed 08/27/05...56 SRM, 60 IBU, 1.088 OG, 1.012 FG, 10.1 ABV. I cleared out the hop freezer and used good ol' Nottingham for this one. Mostly Mt. Hood and Willamette hops if my memory serves me.

DL's SNCA clone - 7 SRM, 64 IBU, 1.068 OG, 1.010 FG, 7.7 ABV....lots and lots of cascade and centennial hops. US56 dry yeast.

Of the 12 or so guests expected one is a beer whore, 2 might sample a homebrew, and the other 8 or so are useless except as designated drivers...which means most of my brew will survive until Christmas!

I'm drinking a Great Lakes Christmas Ale right now. For Tday I'll be tasting some Bier de Gourd (Squash Belgian Strong) and some D'Artmunder (dort) for sure.

I've got a lot to give thanks this year. I hope all of you do too! Happy Turkey Day!

Gobble, gobble!

Nothing beats Biere de Garde at the Thanksgiving table.

Unfortunately, I drank the 750ml I was saving for it tonight!

Unfortunately, my lovely wife has been teetotalling. This bad habit has been cutting into my turnover rate.

I still have a Mt. Hood pilsner, porter, saison and an okay bitter on the taps. Oh, and an excellent one year old Samiclone.

Happy Thanksgiving!

No birds being ate in this house

+6F outside right now.

Cheers!

Coors light...

Okay, I'm kidding. All of my brewing is high grav these days, so in that vein, a Belgian Golden very similar to Delirium but a bit spicier.. running 11.3%.

That'll get me through the famdamnily, alright.

Drinking my clone of Theaksons Old Peculier. Turned out pretty good, but something was missing. Anyway, all the people that have tried the two side by side said they prefer mine, but I'm not sure if they're just trying to be nice.

Oatmeal Stout, Scottish Ale and a Bitter are currently on tap. Not many beer drinkers in the house this season, so I'm on my own.

I'll have a Cyser made from local apples & honey still warm from the hives, and a Belgian strong golden ale.

It will be a small Thanksgiving this year, just four people, so I'm only making three pies.

I am going to my brothers for dinner and I'm bringing some Baltic Porter for us to have as an after dinner desert beer. Should be a great match.

Just got back from the in-laws. Great meal.
I'm (gasp!) out of homebrew, so I had a choice of:

Bud Light
Sam Adam's Winter Lager

Take a guess which one I had...
Surprisingly better than I thought it would be.

I ended up going with a 750ml of Ommegang Rare Vos with dinner. Matched beautifully with the turkey.

Then I paired some Unibroue Ephemere Black Currant with dessert.

Great stuff.

I was lucky enough to find St. Bernardus Abt 12, a very pleasant surprise. That and this year's SNCA (I agree that it's not quite as hoppy as in some years) graced our holiday table.

My only two cold cornys went ppfffffssst the other day. So, I only have a few bottles of DCRIPA. So, it's off to the store I go. Buying beer does make me realize how good fresh brewed homebrew can be.

I do have Your Father's Mustache, B52 and Company #1 Red conditioning for Christmas consumption!
