    Kinda freaked out today. I saw a few leaves had some strange white residue on them, I immediately starting googling powdery and downy mildew pics. Then i go to work and think on it for a bit. The white residue seemed to be kind of in a straight line affecting 5-6 leaves. Then I determined, it was bird poop... 🦅 💩. Im gonna stop worrying about it. RDWHAHB

    Creeps McLane reacted to Gutterbunnie in First partial mash attempt & newbie mistakes   
    Reporting back that it seems, despite my mistakes, BBP turned out pretty awesome:) I took hydrometer reading today which was at 1.008 after adjustments & decided to bottle before the heat wave this weekend. The sample was very tasty & I'm really happy the yeast was able to do it's job afterall! So it's seems that Notty is not a bad yeast to work with, and it settled nicely in the bottom of the LBK. I didn't even cold crash. And after bottling, the yeasty sample I tried  was really quite good so I think that Notty might be a go-to Ale yeast for me. The only thing I'm not too sure of  is if I used enough priming sugar. This time I boiled corn sugar  in about a cup of water & then added that liquid individually to each bottle. But I didn't break down the amount to go into each 12 oz bottle correctly & had some priming solution left over. It yielded 22 twelve oz bottles from this batch &  had about 8 tsp of the priming solution remaining - enough to put into 4 12 oz bottles. I don't have a priming bucket so I don't batch prime. Well, even if it's not super-carbonated, I'll drink it anyway because it tasted too good to waste. If anyone wants to chime in on carbonation for Porters - are they still good even if less carbonated? What I mean is are there some beers that are better less carbonated or more carbonated? Thank you to everyone who has encouraged & offered me advice along the way. I'm really enjoying this hobby (as you might have surmised). It's given me a good creative outlet outside of work, and luckily my hubby is very tolerant;) Just got my  somewhat used  *old motel*  mini fridge  - up & running in garage - already put a few beers in it to cellar  and/or lager until ready to drink or share. Cheers guys!

    @Nickfixit has never sent me beer, nor have I sent some to him. This needs to change. Please accept my Beer peace treaty offering

    I had planned to go up north this weekend and come back on Sunday and brew two extract  batches for kubbapalooza which is fast approaching. However, now it’s like rain/hailing out and strong winds. So.......... I have all the time in the world to brew this weekend. I’m making a gluten free lager and a bigger batch of wheat wort that will be split into a Hefeweizen batch and a Weiss that will be rack into the keg on top of some lemonade for a shandy. Super stoked

    That’s exactly what I did myself last time. I thought it was great. That was a pale ale though, this is gonna be a lager... we’ll see what comes through. This is where I’m sitting so far. I have to work out my late hop addition and I have to add lime zest to the database

    I made one of these Gluten Free Beers awhile back for a guy at work that has that issue. It was a basically a 1G Belgian Pale ale recipe from CraftaBrew using sorghum and the amber candi sugar instead of the malt extract. Turned out pretty well, according to him and his brother.

    Well my Nottingham yeast has kicked into high Krausen on my Wee Heavy Winston, and always glad to see that. Who knows maybe it will get great attenuation and be a Wee Heavy instead of a Wee!
    However it was really bugging me that I had to deviate from my recipe so I exercised my right as a consumer and ordered more grains including Victory, another Churchill, more Crystal 60, and while I was at it another CAL and American Ale for my Pale Ale with Mosaic that turned out so great for a easy drinking summer brew with a bit of ABV kick to it.
    Lol, also added a can of those Raspberries thinking that a raspberry stout may be in the works.
     
    I'm for sure going to have a second entry into the Churchill's challenge, @Bonsai & Brew . I got a few pounds of Golden Promise 2-row and will use part of it for an Irish red ale, but thinking i will use some for a Churchill recipe.

    Had to get some manure tonight for my hops. I did some reading last night and found that if your bines are a redish color then your lacking on nitrogen. So poop is happening!!!
     
    i also put down some mulch finally to help keep moisture in the soil and hopefully also keep away pests and diseases

    @Creeps McLane If hops are like most other plants, I would think that clipping the 'extra' runners would direct more energy to the ones you're training.  Then again, you don't want to run out of fresh hops on brew day either...

    So, i need some opinions. At the crown of my plant i have one of my 4 main bines. Their starting to display nice foundations for the hop flowers but on one of them I have two more runners coming off. Should i clip them?
