Good afternoon/evening FReepers. Yep, it is Beer Thirty Time Once Again!

Happiness is a bubbling airlock! And a Cold Brew

 

Irish Stout Yum!

Good evening/afternoon brewers and winemakers.

Well, it has been a little more than a month since the last thread was posted. The Oatmeal Stout I bottled around the middle of Feb. has bottle aged and carbonated very nicely and is mighty, mighty tasty. My next Homebrew will be another Oatmeal Stout because this one turned out so well.

I hope all of you and your Brews and Wines are doing well. Stop by and share what you are brewing or let us know what your favorite brew, wine or spirit is.

Thanks for posting this thread. Yesterday, I was thinking I had no adult beverage. This thread just reminded me I have Corona Light in the fridge.

You see, yesterday I paid my income tax and needed an adult beverage afterward. So, since you reminded me of the Corona, I’ll have two (one to make up for yesterday) later today, well, not much later than right now.

Well now that you mentioned it, I have 5 gallons right now in a glass carboy waiting to be bottled in about three more weeks. 4 lbs. of two row, 6 lbs. of 6 row, 1 lb. crystal malt color 60L, 1/2 lb. smoked malt. I’m thinking I may have to increase the smoked malt in the next batch, but we'll see.

I am brewing 10 gallons of Citra SMaSH (Single Malt and Single Hop) Ale tomorrow. I have an entire pound of Citra that I am gonna pack in there either during the boil, or at the dry hop stage. Along with about 20 pounds of Pale Malt. It is gonna be a GREAT BEER as I have made it before. This will most likely be bottled. Next weekend, I plan on brewing a Stout. This will be the first beer that I have brewed since I moved to the Country. I NOW have some of the best tasting well water that has ever been in my mouth.... so I CAN’T WAIT! No more filtered Municipal water! YAY!

This is cool. Working on a beer garden for local chamber festival in June. A chart like this could be a great addition to the event.

Thanks for posting.

Just poured a trappist ale I bottled about four weeks ago. Time to start another.

Greetings all! Cheers! Currently drinking flat ales and eating home made burritos...a very nice pairing actually.

Bottled up 80 bottles of my famous spiced wheat ales on Sunday but I forgot to add the primer to the first 24.

The good part about that is I can drink them right away, and they are not too bad really but I do look forward to trying the carbonated ones tomorrow night.

Cheers!

I just popped the first bottle of the Belgian I brewed earlier this year. This one is the best ever, probably because I did this with just the basic ingredients, including Trappist yeast, and used a starter both for the initial fermentation and conditioning. I’ll be doing this again very soon!
