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 […]

Good grief.  Only one post for May and not a lot of brewing going on.  Life is busy! On the bad news side, my fermentation freezer has crapped out and I’m not sure when I’ll be able to get it fixed.  I may be doing a lot of Belgian work this summer.  On the good […]

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 […]

This past Tuesday we had reason to celebrate as we found out we’ll be having a boy in August!  So, Callie fixed St. Augustine dinner (I’ll get her to post the recipe if anyone is interested) and I put the Dark Mild on tap and force carbonated it to real ale level.  We had some […]

So I’ve been having problems recently with my boil kettle burner.  Originally, I had chosen to go with the 23-jet wok burner thinking I would get the most bang for the buck.  At some online restaurant supply shops they were around $25.  I got one spec’d for propane and hooked it up with my regulator […]
