Since my wife is pregnant, I’ve been working on more long term brewing projects lately.  Of particular interest has been starting some sour beers.  At the end of March, I got in on the last shipment of East Coast Yeast until the Fall.  Since stock was limited, I got one vial of Al’s Flemish Ale […]

Well damn, it’s been almost a month since my last post.  I had been on a pretty good roll too, but sometimes life takes over. So to get everyone back up to speed, the last time we brewed was for Lambic #2 which was a split batch with a friend from Brewmasters of Alpharetta.  Since […]

After spending some time talking Lambics with Les from Brewmasters of Alpharetta and discussing the various techniques used to produce them, we decided to get together and do a collaborative brew.  Brewday was this past weekend and went fairly well.  We decided to abort our planned turbid mash since the wind was fairly strong and […]

For the past two weeks, I’ve been working on a yeast propagation project for this saison.  It started when I cultured up the dregs from a bottle of The Bruery’s Saison De Lente (which is a very good Saison in my opinion).  This stepped up to around an 800mL worth of starter.  Upon completion, I […]

I’ve done a few Irish Red’s over the past few years.  This will be recipe number four.  I’ve decided to clean up the grain bill a bit this time as when I originally designed it I was in kitchen sink mode.  I don’t know what it is about getting ambitious late at night on a work […]

So, I’ve been feeding a Lacto D. starter for a few weeks now in anticipation of brewing a Berliner Weiss.  Having to prepare a room for the new nursery has been eating up spare time, but it’s good to keep mom happy!  Since this was a shorter brew plan, I decided to tackle it the […]

Well, it was a busy weekend with beautiful weather and lots to do.  I had planned to fire up the big system and brew a full 10 gallon batch, but it just didn’t work out.  I did, however, manage to get the small system going in the kitchen and filled my empty 3 gallon Better […]

This past Saturday night, I ended up with the house to myself while the girls had a sleepover at a friends.  Of course I had honey-do’s to finish and I had an itch to go see The Mechanic (which was pretty good), but what I really wanted was to knock out a batch of beer. […]

Yesterday, I brewed my first Lambic… and dove in feet first with a traditional turbid mash technique. Borrowing notes from the Burgundian Babble Belt, Mike T’s blog and The Liddil Lambic Lesson I did the following recipe and mash schedule: Thanks to Shelby from Final Gravity for stopping by and lending a hand (and sharing […]

With all of the holidays coming and going along with the increased needs of work and home, it’s been a bit harder to hide out in the garage for half a day firing up the old brew rig. So, I put together a small 2 gallon mash tun (found it discounted at Target too) and […]
