  1. 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?
  2. I also have 10 lbs caramunich 10 lbs carafa II 5 lbs flaked oats 15 lbs roasted barley 5 lbs victory 7 lbs rye malt 30 lbs white wheat possibly 22 lbs of acidulated. I think I double ordered that one
  3. Everything west of the silver packs are unopened.
  4. Just bought: 50lbs vienna 50lbs pale malt 12lbs acidulated 12lbs munich gonna start doing smash beers. Empty the hops in the freezer.
  5. I finally made it. The big time lol

  8. Long Story: Two saturdays (brew day) ago, I was really tired. Sunday, even more tired. Monday, tickle in my throat. Tuesday, sore throat. Wednesday, I left work. Theres about 400 signs posted saying that if youre sick, they dont want you there. Got tested for Covid that day. Thursday off while I waited for results, Friday I stayed home even though I knew I was negative but they didnt... Monday, went into work. Actually got walked out because I still had "symptoms". Told not to come back until I am symptom free. So I took today, Tuesday off as well since Im still coughing up shit and throat is a little scratchy. Just got off the phone with my boss, told me not to come in tomorrow and he'll call me tomorrow to discuss what Thursday holds. So, my work is telling me to stay home. Allegedly people are mad that I even tried to come back Monday despite a negative Covid test. This is a place where I told my supervisor I was sick and was going straight to the ER while im almost in tears and had almost fainted a few moments before and all he told me was "go take a shit, youll feel better.". The same place that punishes you for calling in sick by forcing you to work later on Fridays. Now my boss is like "under no circumstance do we want you here if youre sick". "If youre trying to come back for financial reasons, we will give you a pay day loan". I mean, Im glad Im being encouraged to stay home if I am not well. However, I never thought Id be forced to stay home like this. Im sure things will calm down in November, but hopefully a little bit of this concern for the employees health stays. And honestly, Ive put it off long enough. Freaking 7 days off and I havent brewed!!!! That changes tomorrow. If not right now! Oh and I get to see my boys off to their first days of school tomorrow!
  9. New brew set up. Limited on overhead space (I always really was).  Knew what I needed but didnt want to spend that much on it.  Guess what?  Its on sale!!! Was $65 and is now $23!!! Sentinel Boil Over Minder is a great way to drain a BIAB Bag if you have to walk away

  10. Havent ruined my own batch yet but I know what you mean. One nose wipe, or leg scratch while harvesting and your next 6-8 hours of labor could all be ruined. Plus any equipment. However, some strands really dont get good until the 3-4 pitch. Just sayin IMG_5446.MOV
  11. @Bonsai & Brewi actually liked blank canvas but I didnt want to disagree with @Big Sarge until I pondered deeper. Blank Canvas Is what I call frozen pizzas cuz you can do anything to them if you look at them like a blank canvas
  12. choices: No Vote of Confidence Give Me Liberty or Give Me Beer Blank Canvas Their Majesty's Satanic Request WTFockett Golden Ale Golden Calamus Sin of the Calf Midas
  13. Cuz isomeration or however you spell it happens anywhere above (guessing) 180. Im guessing thats why whirlpooling around 170 is good cuz your not losing those volatiles.
  14. Final recipe. Plus the 9lbs and 1 lb of course. But I need a name from @Bonsai & Brew
  15. Looking something like this. Don’t disagree, i already ordered the ingredients.
  16. Anyone agree or disagree with this decision. Golden ale would be tradition for bittering, centennial, and EKG later on. Liberty bell yeast. otherwise dont tempt me with a pale ale. Or saison!
  17. Yall put your labels on before or after filling? Yours are probably room temp if you dont cold crash though so theres no sweat on the bottle
  18. A friend once shipped me some kits and one was an excellent golden ale. Perhaps that will be the ticket
  19. I was also thinking roggenkellerbier. First thing that popped in my mind. Or a roggendunkelweizen international pale lager ale. I win
  20. I guess im down for anything. I want a light bodied, flavorful beer that showcases the malt. But nothing boring. Champagne taste...
  21. 9 lbs pale, 1 lb rye... haven’t decided. Id like to be lowly hopped to let the malt shine through. anyone got suggestions?
  22. So @Bonsai & Brew run this by me again. What did your tests show on the stats of this grain. 1.037 extract potential and 4 srm? I could look it up but its funner this way
  23. Woke up this morning at 3 am thinking about 9 lbs of grain from @Bonsai & Brew. Figured id start a post so anyone can follow along with the progress
  24. Pretty excited for tomorrow
