Well the truth be told I have not brewed in over 2 years.. The reason mainly being that better IPA's have become available here in Utah. Specifically Boulders hazed and infused and local Hop Rising. That and a few others have kept me somewhat happy. Pricey ?? YES but so much easier if you have the bucks.
I find myself with some extra time this fall and all the tags filled up and in need of a beer to serve at Xmas.
SSOS is my favorite but not to many other folks in my circle.
B 52 would go over well if that can be rushed if I brew ASAP??
Maybe a cap??
Anyway Just wanted to know I have often thought of everyone from the old days( each time I paid 40$ a case for my beer). I have been playing with the brew equipment lately as some stuff is moving to a new shed/guy room.
Looking forward to brewing and conversing with you guys soon.

ELKstar!!! Ironic, I was just doing some searching for info here yesterday and came across an old post which included you. I thought to myself, where has ELK gone? And you're back!

I've been on a brewing hiatus, myself, due to work. I haven't brewed since last December. However, I'm taking all of next week off and will remedy that with 5 batches I have lined up. An American Brown, Robust Porter, SNPA clone (with the hops bumped up a bit), and two different IPA's. Never enough of the hoppy stuff!

Good to see you back.

A SHED???!!!

Horrors! Am I mistaken, or don't I remember pics of you brewing on the back porch with a breathtaking vista of mountains in the background? The view of the inside of a shed can't possibly compare. I hope your stuff is on wheels so you can drag it outside on brewday.

If you need quick turnaround on something not too challenging for the non-geek crowd, I'd suggest either an American wheat or a simple pale ale. Either could be on tap in 2 - 3 weeks at most and neither should scare off any but the most hardcore BMC drinker.

BTW, welcome back!

Welcome back indeed! Your name came to mind last week when I was thinking about people who were regulars on the board in the past.

If you want something easy drinking, consider a variation on a mild ale. My wife and I rode our tandem bicycle last weekend to a restaurant we like in a town a little more than 30 miles from here. They had a great beer on tap from a microbrewery only a few blocks away. At 4.5 percent ABV and about 12 SRM it was at the stronger and lighter (in color) ends of the style, but it was wonderfully drinkable with just enough chocolate malt to add some richness to the flavor.

I also thought of ELK when I saw Richard Nye drop in last week!

IF you brew this weekend, you could do something a little richer than a mild. (sorry Bill)

I think there is enough time for yer B-52 if that's what sounds good to ya . . even a winter warmer of sorts should be doable in the 1.060 range.}

Hi Guys.. Yes the Lone Peak Brewery is still an outside operation.. The shed is just for storing the empty bottles Brew kegs and MT and stuff like that. Well the shed is for tons of other stuff and is a small workshop too.

That's good to hear. I was worried about you for a moment there.

Who cares about brewing, have you got your elk yet?

(Fully expecting: "No! Since Ted Turner opened up his Montana grill in SLC last year, there is a much better assortment of elk steaks available at the local restaurants! I haven't gone elk hunting in two years!!!")

.......tongue in cheek.......

If he didn't, then I got my Moose this year.

I actually had minced Elk two weeks ago when a friend of my Brother-in-Law came back from Alberta. Wasn't as gamey as I thought it would be, but it was nice none-the-less.
A local grill here also had Alligator on the menu for a while. Never had the chance to try that out.

For what it's worth, alligator meat isn't half-bad. There's some resemblance to pork.

Welcome back, ELK. It must be the season for the return of prodigal brewers. Friday I was the LHBS and ran into my former neighbor who got me into brewing many years ago. Some years ago he stopped brewing due to the demands of young children, then he moved away to a neighboring state. Well it turns out he back into brewing after about 5 years, and he shops at his old shop when he's in the area on a sales call.
