So this is one of those weekends. I am probably not going to have time to brew this weekend. We have extra hobbits in the home. Some friends of ours are on a vacation and we are taking care of their kids. One of whom is 7 Months old I have obligations in our church drama. You know the kind of weekend that is more work than relaxing. So brewing may have to go in the back burner for
But, I am doing home brew related stuff...
Just checked the gravity of my Lager. It is down to 1.018. So it still has a ways to go, but it is delicious. Probably needs another 10 -14 days. But no buttery notes, no butterscotch. It's going to be great.
Checked the broken beer. You may remember months ago I screwed up a mash. Well I added amylase 5 weeks ago. It is ready for bottling. It is a delicious golden ale.
Tried the 2 hearted ale. Only been in the bottle a week. Way too sweet. Ill give it a week and try it again. (UPDATE the sweetness faded a lot over the next couple of days. Had one Thursday night it was dang close to the original)
Tried the Miller the Muggle. This beer is good. You make a very light ale. Then you add amylase to secondary and let a secondary fermentation occur. The end result is a crisp dry "lager" like ale. It is very good and very drinkable and only 4.3% alcohol
Tomorrow I'll be racking from one Mr. Beer to another so I can wash some 2112 yeast.
Some time this week Ill be making another batch of Miller the Muggle. And next weekend Ill be making a 2112 Light Lager. Trying to make lots of what you might call session beers. Kinda tired of 8-10% DIPAs.
