    Someone actually asked a MRB question on the MRB forum and everyone is like....😲. LOL!

    Not sure what I want to tackle for my next brew. My inventory of specialty grains and wheat were okay, but needed some staple base malts which were pretty depleted. Coming in tomorrow are 2lb C-40, 3lb Munich, 5lb Briess 2 row, 10lb Golden Promise, 5 lb Pilsen. Bottling a Northwest IPA style at the end of the week, so kinda leaning towards a Golden Ale but need to check my hops inventory and likely that will point me in the right direction.

    Have clogged my racking arm many times. That can be a mess! But more hops so worth it.

    Looks like a lot of hops. When it finalized, double the late additions. Cant go wrong with more hops. Unless you clog your valve ports, eh @Jdub?

    Hop shipment today, so now just need to flesh out the recipe. Will be a Pale Ale most likely with some nice aroma whirlpool additions of Galaxy, El Dorado, and some Amarillo and a little Citra.

    Bottled two six packs out of this. Really did not feel worth it at all to try to squeeze a little more out of the gallon left in the LBK. It's a shame really, I got back into brewing because I had prickly pear cactus fruit on hand, and I really liked Shiners Prickly Pear beer 😕

    That is clearly more than Buckeyeitis. Yes, it's likely from using unpasteurized fruit. You can bottole it, and not pull any of that in, and take the steps you suggested. The worst you can is a bad tasting beer, which you won't drink. Or, you can toss it. In cleaning the LBK, I would follow these guidelines AFTER washing it. http://howtobrew.com/book/section-1/brewing-preperations/sanitation/sanitizing-your-equipment First, when you're done dumping or bottling, dump the rest out. Rinse with water repeatedly (not real hot water, water your hands can take). Then, use a wash cloth and some unscented dish soap and cover every surface. Rinse well repeatedly. Then, follow the sanitizing guidelines. For the spigot, make sure to put some of the cleaning water, and rinse water, through it. Then, after sanitizing the LBK and running some of the solution through the spigot, rinse everything and disassemble the spigot (not just into spigot, washer, and nut, but separate the two pieces of the spigot). Gently use a skinny bottle brush and gentle scrub inside with unscented dish soap, then rinse. I would have no problem using a bottling wand. After use, flush it, then disassemble and wash every piece. For your next batch, maybe a local Wolverine can supervise... BOOM!

    Sundays are pretty slow here, @BuckeyeBrewer. First, if you're sure it's a lacto infection, I can see it resulting in a good beer. That could likely take while. Maybe they're just funky yeast rafts, if the beer doesn't taste overly sour? Again, it might be too soon to tell. If it is an infection and you plan on bottling now, I'd stay away from glass bottles. These could gush, or worse explode. I understand you're taking precautions, but you could have a ticking timebomb if they don't explode in the cooler. I'd get rid of the LBK afterward, unless you plan on making more sours with it lol.

    Hmm, a Scharwzbier would be interesting. I had the authentic when I was in Germany a few years back.

    If you do this, I look forward to reading about the process, the brew, and the end result.

    I have a new pellet smoker that is pretty much amazing. I am also a fan of peated (Smokey) scotch. What if I put some grains on a cookie sheet in the smoker for a while for a low temp smoke? Maybe a smoked ipa? Is that gross? Or would that be remotely interesting? Should I just stick with ribs?

    Winter is coming.... Brew accordingly. I have an imperial coffee stout in the queue, specifically for that reason.

    Ok the beer in the bottles is super cloudy and developing the film on top. Probably gonna pop the lid and throw these out.
