  1. Nice! i still have a little Altbier left in one of my kegs. that was a good one. May step up and brew a kitchen batch this week. it's literally like 106 deg here right now. heat wave for a few more days.
  2. I just need 3 bags of ice. I use a wort chiller and submersible pump in a cooler. Works like a charm. Just a pain in the ass messing with it. I know. I could brew indoors and I have. Wouldn’t it be nice to have a nice chilly morning to brew outside? This fall for sure.
  3. damn..i have a Neptune Pale Ale that I have all the stuff for, but it's just too stinking hot here in NTX right now! I would move somewhere else in a few years, but we have too much freedom here in Texas! maybe a couple of months "brewing vacation" in a few years when I'm an empty nester? just thinking out loud and planning my life, sorry.
  4. i like roggenkellerbier. something about Keller. I think i have been to that Texas town before? LOL
  5. yes, just kegged a pale ale using hothead today. great for summer. you literally don't need temp control! hot garage got the brew up to mid 90's. finished in about 3 days, did a 3 day dry hop and cold crashed. should be some great tropical esters at that high temp. highly recommend in the summer.
  6. that is a lot of beer. more than i would be able to drink for sure. what's the style you're shooting for?
  7. on topic, downloaded the 2019 report for kroger spring water i use and built profile in BS. will go with the suggested water additions for next IPA i'm finna brew this week maybe. will see if it's a big difference.
  8. @Big Sarge i just went to LHBS and picked up some hothead. have a recipe and ingredients for "Neptune IPA" from BYO website? will do a hot garage batch with it. gonna get that bitch up to 99 degrees or so next week!
  9. im not sure, but it gives off fruity esters at higher temps, plus, i mostly brew ipa's so it's a good fit i think. i'll bet a wheat beer would be nice too.
  10. hell yeah! lots of times. hothead is one of them, and the Voss Kveik. used them both. do a hot Texas garage batch IPA with it. no temp control needed. did an ipa last summer and temp got up to 100 deg in my garage. turned out so good! i think the brew finished in like 3 days. crazy.
  11. Think I’m gonna brew tomorrow. 4 gal batch of a citra hop bomb dipa. I have had the uncrushed grains for some time vacuum sealed. Gonna use mangrove jack west coast yeast. Indoor batch. High 90’s here tomorrow.
  12. stole yeast from 3 bell's oberon's tonight. started with a small starter on the stir plate. will prop it up one more time in 3 or 4 days. 1st time to try this. gonna brew an oberon clone in about 1 week or so.
  13. used K97 German Ale yeast. fermenting at 65 degrees in my ferm fridge. we'll see how the finished product turns out. i was going to follow the normal ale schedule: 2 weeks ferm and one week in the keg. perhaps i should consider letting it sit in the keg for awhile longer to condition. all i have to go by are @Cato's pix of his altbier. looks good!
  14. well the wort smelled great! dark and toasty just like i imagine it will taste.
