Re: TLDR Beer Club

Do you have any idea how KBS hold up over time?

I don't want to hang on to it for too long to find out that a lot of the coffee/bourbon notes have dropped over time.

Dont know specifics but I am sure time would not hurt that beer.

Just doughed in on my largest batch to date, 15 gallons of a Table Saison 1.042. Itll be fermented 3 ways, 8 gallons is getting WLP565 Saison I for the clean version, 2 gallons is getting ECY20 for a funky sour version, and 5 gallons is getting WLP644 Brett Brux Trois as a 100% Brett fermentation.

Im extremely excited about the 100% Brett version, thats more the focal point of this brewday as Ive been building up a starter for 8 days now.

Pilsner
Munich
Wheat

Warrior for bittering
Amarillo and Styrian Aurora for aroma and flavor, lots of Amarillo late.

Re: TLDR Beer Club

So I just moved into an apartment and have to do stove top BIAB. It's actually going to work out ok, I plan on brewing small batches (2 gal) more frequently and ferment in Mr Beer fermenters.

First up, orange honey wheat. ~5% ABV

2 lb white wheat
2 lb 2-row
0.25 lb honey malt

1 oz citra 5 min
??? oz orange zest

Clean ferment with WLP001

How does this recipe look to everyone? I've never used honey malt, how much honey character does it impart? Anybody ever use zest? How much is enough for a good, bright citrusy blast of orange?

Kind of a guess but zest of one orange seems like plenty for 2 gallons

We started rapping "Hypnotize" (notorious B.I.G.), impressed him, handed over $10 and got our KBS. Now I just need to figure out a time and place to actually drink it
Haha, that's awesome.

Nice song selection, too.

zest of one orange is probably enough, the grain bill seems ok to me %50 wheat isnt really my cup of tea (although I use %40 in my White IPA and love it but some of that is flaked). IMO I would split that hop addition up, maybe do 0.5 oz of Citra at 15 or 20 mins and the other half at 5 if youre really looking to hop burst it. I think if you do an ounce at 5 minutes you just wont get enough bitterness and flavor to balance out the wheat and honey malt.

Im kind of just talking out of my ass though so take it for what its worth.

I go to 5 Points Liquor in Valdosta. They have a great craft beer selection but I don't think anybody knows about them. They let me reserve as much CBS and KBS as I want when they were released, you just have to be on top of them. Keep it a secret shhhhhh.

Re: TLDR Beer Club

For national IPA Day I had Pliny the Elder on tap at a local bar, then came home and had a can of Heady Topper to round it out. Heady is better imo, I said it before but this time I was able to try them both in one night and I am sure of it now.

4oz 60L Crystal

my mouth is fine. Didn't get to all of the beers though as I forgot to factor in all of the bbq duck we were gonna eat. Even if we did, the sourness and dryness of even the most sour beer doesn't compare to some of the acidic wines I drink

Re: TLDR Beer Club

I know it's early, but the breweries have already started releasing them so what's everyones thoughts on Pumpkin beers? I'm a big fan although I really only like Dogfish Head Punkin, Cigar City Good Gourd and my favorite, hands down Souther Tier Pumking.

Also, to the brewers, anybody ever brew one? I think I want to but would love suggestions on how you get the pumpkin flavor in there. Baking canned pumpkin, then adding to the mash seems to be the standard way from what little research I've done.

I'm a big anti-pumpkin beer guy. Way too spicy for me. I need to get an Oktoberfest going, but fridge is on the fritz :-\

Not a fan of pumpkin beers, but afaik the standard way is not to use any pumpkin, but just add the spices. Pumpkin is enough of a hassle that lots of places don't bother with the actual (melon? vegetable? fruit?).
