Title: What do you have fermenting?
Post by: ttreml3 on February 18, 2004, 02:16:14 PM
I'm on a minor hiatus, but want to live vicariously through you all, so....
What do you have in carboys?
I've got a brown, an apple wine and a blueberry wine aging in secondary.

curiously,

I have an Imperial IPA in long-term conditioning, a Bastardized Belgian-American Pale Ale in long-term conditioning, a Classic American Pilsner just starting lagering, a Mango Ale going through second primary (just added the mangos), and a Single-Malt Pale Ale in primary.

Hope that helped with your dreaming!

I'm embarrased to say that I too have kegged my last batch and need to fire up the kettle to create another - perhaps this weekend!

Cheers!

A very nice Imperial Stout is in the secondary. ;D

An American Red Ale that I will bottle tomorrow.

An experimental Stout with licorice & brown sugar that hit the secondary on Saturday.

A German Light Pils is in the mash tun as I write will hit the fermenter in a few hours.

I have a Wit in the fermenter now and I'm leaning towards a fruit beer followed by some more Alt.

Cheers!

I have two pale ales in "extended" primary right now -- no time to transfer them, but I'll have to get to that tomorrow or Saturday. I also have to brew an Oktoberfest soon -- running out of time for that one.  >:(

Well I have my very first batch of a pale ale in ferment.  I have finally started brewing, after many years of saying I was going to.

I can hardly wait.  I hope to bottle it early next week.

I've got an Apricot Pale Ale going into the secondary tonight, with a stout right on its heels.  I'm trying to dodge the beer police since my last keg went dry last night.  Ugggggh!  Gotta catch up!

 My FIRST partial mash with 4 hop additions in a simulation of a nevada pale ale..very heavy 1.060 with a lot of suspended solids and a WYEAST ALE smack pack

Still fermenting after 6 days, this brew must have a lot of fermentables with just a pound of cracked wheat supplementing the LME

This whole bidness helps me  become familiar with mashing and hops schedules etc.

We'll see in a few weeks..I got a lot to learn

I have 2 Bavarian wheat [diffrent brews] a thick stout with chocolate malt and corn syrup with a good yeast. I still use 30L drums and bottle my brews, I don't like kegs, I go "bush' a lot and like to take a cooler full of ice and bottles chilled.
Bye the way, my stout is 'to die for', smooth neck oil.
Bottled one today

Post by: Shakey_Dog on September 22, 2004, 02:08:43 AM
I have an Amber that I will bottle this weekend. I also used 1lb of flaked rye to make it interesting.  And all I had a was White labs SF Lager yeast.  Smelled and tasted great when I put it in secondary.

Next brew is going to be Bitter bald guy :P

Not much in fermenting at the moment, just 5 gallons of Kolsch, but I am planning to brew two batches this weekend, 5 gallons of APA and 5 more of Altbier.  I do have 50 gallons in kegs though so I should be good for a while. :)

5 gallons each:  1. Strawberry-Wheat (21), 2.  my Mississippi IPA ;D, oatmeal-chocolate stout, and Pinot Noir. ::)

Good time to respond again to this, as I have something worth note!
Primary: tripel and black beer
secondary: ipa and porter
kegged: ipa and wheat
wine: blueberry and pinot grigio aging.

sadly the apple wine in my first post didn't make it to bottles.

All I have now is Bitter Bald Guy >:(

Next is 80 schilling.

when I racked my Bitter that I was going to call Bitter bald guy (I am bald and some people say I am bitter or jaded, I take both as a copliment) I found that there was a dead bee in the primary.

2 questions.

1.  What do you think of the new name Buzz Kill Bitter.

2.  Do you think the beer will ok? It smells fine and tasted great and had fermented out well down to 1.012.

Any thoughts.

Oh my!!!  I thought I was the only one slipping...I must get the HOLIDAY kegs going...Anyone have a GOOOOOD & tried  pilsner recipe????
Title: Re: What do you have fermenting?
Post by: hornbrau on October 13, 2004, 04:30:34 AM
A pilsner for the holidays??  If it Thanksgiving, your too late, for Christmas you might be OK but I usually like to let pilsners "age" for at least 2 mos.  If you want something a little easier and quicker to brew, try a Kolsch.  2-3 weeks into the keg and then a month to condition and it's ready to drink, most people will mistake it for a pilsner to.

Just this moring I transfered a Belgain Strong Golden ale to secondary.

OG was 1.080 and it fermented down to 1.008.

I gave it a sample and it has a STRONG alcohol presence.

Amazing what good temperature control in the mash will do for fermentability!

Brewed an 80 well more like 90 shilling Scottish Export ale.  At 1.076 og its not quite an 80 schilling or a wee heavy.  I brewed last night.

I hit everything right on, temp and volume.  Smelled and tasted great gong into fermenter.  I cannot wait.

I just brewed 10 gallons of Dortmunder Export.
I have a Nut Brown in secondary now and just kegged 10 gallons of Hefe.

This is brewing season in Las Vegas, the heat is gone so it is 2 -3 batches a week for a month or so ;)

Next up, and this goes completly by yeast expirations.
Trippel, Saison, Czech Pils, then some scottish 80 or maybe a wee heavy,.

I love this time of year...... ;D

I've got a wheat in secondary and a Bavarian Lager in primary, but I just got 4 new kegs yesterday and had 2 more blow on me last night while watching the election returns, so I now have 7 empty kegs.  Looks like I'll be brewing this weekend!

I have
-a brown ale that I will bottle tonight (or tomorrow)
-a melomel (tropical fruit and local honey)
-a beet wine
-a maple wine
-a melon wine

And I should have had a nut brown ale today if my homebrew shop wasn't closed yesterday for election day >:(.
