The Blackberry Puree is going to go into Secondary at 9-10 days. I've got to get a bigger pot though if I continue to Steep grains.
  2. That and St. Patrick's Irish Stout is still there! :charlie:
  3. This sounds great! Mind it I borrow it too!!!!

I haven't brewed it yet because I need to pick up more Hops, might even change it from Willamette to Goldings or Kent. Might even add the honey at bottling, which might up the SRM.
  5. Very nice! I just bottled mine last friday. Thanks for sharing :cheers:
  6. No worries there, I'll see if I can keep two 1/2 liter bottles in the fridge for you.
  7. Nice! would like to know how both of these work out.
  8. Joechianti said"I swear, I didn't even know what a Wanker was when I made that post." Funny but true story, I didn't know what Shmuck was till I called my best friends father that at the dinner table one night years ago, There are times I think my head still hurts from the shallacking I got for it.
  9. Russki: Thanks for being the voice of reason.
  10. Actually It got too cool, could not find a spot in the house that would keep it above 75, not even the utility closet where the water heater and heating system is or even over the refrigerator. Can't wait to buy a house, military housing is great, but not that great.Hey at least the Mead and Beer is GTG!
  11. Well What can I say, thanks to the changes and not being able to find a good warm stop with a constant temp in the house, the first cider of the year I made turned into vinegar. Just goes to show how IMPORTANT it is to maintain temp. Oh well at least my wife has 2 gallons of Apple Cider Vinegar to use. Guess I'll have to wait till summer.
  12. OOPS sorry, didn't see this. After bottling I let them carb for two weeks and then we got a cold snap so I moved them to the garage where they sat.
  13. "ZiggyZag" post=256127 said:What flavors and creaminess/thin-thickness come thru from each? Dark, rich malty with just a hint of nut ( added some almond extract) Great mouth feel, if you cold condition it for more than a day, I would let it warm up a little before server, Cellar temp unless your like me and don't mind it a bit warmer than that. I haven't tried the St. Pat's yet but that is in the queue to be made.
  14. "TimeTraveler" post=256082 said:I've only brewed a modified version of the Sticky Wicket Oatmeal Stout and it turned out great. It is an English style ale. I added a DME and a Fuggles boil to the normal recipe and it turned out smooth and tasty. +1 I liked my Sticky Wicket, try a can of UME in it too, Very Tempting and very tasty! :stout: It's what's for dinner!
  15. Getting excited about it! Really hope the HME/ UME come "Biggie Sized" though, I really like them. Though I'm gonna have to go and find me some Cooper's and give it a shot.
  16. Manosteel, I'll agree with that, at four weeks it was good, hoping at six weeks it will be better. If I remember to catch the next bottle on camera, I'll post a picture. Or if ya beat me to it your more than welcome to post.
  17. Yeah I started using Hopville too! I really like it. Can't wait for it to have app status for Android though.
  18. Well we couldn't resist and tried a bottle of the stout tonight, the head wasn't quite there but the carbonation and flavor was! I made a very tasty stout with this recipe :stout: Give it a couple of more weeks and it will be even better
  19. It's still a little young but should mellow out nicely [attachment=7840]62683_10151555777745361_536985360_23657604_2108170078_n.JPG[/attachment] Hope you guys will like this.

I put mine in the bottle last week and wasn't planning on trying for another month or so, but I'm curious as to other people's results with this one. I want to say 4 weeks, I'll have to verify when I get home still at work. But it was in the LBK 3.5 weeks. Okay now that I am home and the girls are in bed, here are my notes: Brewed: 2Mar12 Bottled: 27Mar12 ( I wanted to go longer but we hit a warm spell and I didn't want to risk it) Length of fermentation: 3 1/2 weeks Put the first one in the Fridge: 18April12 Cracked: 22Apr12 So in bottles one day shy of a month. Hoped that helped. I might add: I wanted to go longer, but we got tired of harvesting bottles
  21. Well..... You could always harvest bottles with free beer in them. :whistle:

  23. "Beer-lord" post=255107 said:My wife just loves it. She insists on putting a bit of orange in it. I have to say that I'm very impressed with it myself. If you were to tell me it was from a craft brewery, I'd have a hard time believing it. I think they should offer this on a regular basis for those who want to try a true lager. My wife took her first sip and then did a little Happy Snoppy Dance and joyiously saying we have beer again in the house! Verry Funny. :banana:
  24. If you have two LBK's I would say two! :evil: But that's just me. @Mashani, Thanks for sharing. Hoping mine comes out at least this nice, got several weeks left though.
