Probably be my last brew for the season - I don't enjoy doing it so much when it's too cold out, although the garage does warm up with the big propane burners going, but I do have to keep the garage doors open to ensure adequate ventilation!

I've been brewing a few batches lately to stock up for winter and adding this last batch will ensure I have all my kegs filled before the holiday season!

That will see me through the winter and there should hopefully be still some left for next Spring when we get home from our annual snowbird trip and I can get to brewing again!

Tomorrow's planned brew will be an "ESB" (Extra Special Bitter) one of my favorite British beer styles!

I do 5 gal batches on an electric stove top. Seems to work just fine, just slower than propane.

I have gone to mostly grain recipes with honey as main sugar source.

So how are you brewing? 15 gal batches? All grain? Liquid malt?

Hi Silverflames,

I brew five gallon batches using all grain. I buy the base malt in 55 pound bags and mill it just before brewing to keep things as fresh as possible.

For hops, I mostly use hop pellets, but I did start growing hops up the side of the house and have just started brewing with them. (Cascade and Zeus hops).

I use a ten gallon igloo cooler as a mash tun.

I brew mostly pale ales and IPA's (both US and UK styles) and sometimes a brown ale or a porter.

It is a great hobby isn't it !?

I've only been at it a couple of years. Many years back (in the seventies) I did try making beer with extracts but did not care for it at all and gave it up add a bad job!

I seem to be having much better success with all-grain brewing, and now find that I prefer my own brews to any that I can buy!

Brian.

I just picked up 2 - 6 packs at Raley's in Placerville. That was all that they had. I had been checking the New Belgium web site to see just when it would arrive in our part of northern Cal. They shoed no sources but I kept looking. Now to light a fire in the fireplace and enjoy.

I made a try once brewing beer. It was fun making several batches but it wasn't that good, sorta skunky. I drank the stuff anyway. I still have some of my equipment. Perhaps I will try again sometime. In the meantime I am drinking some mighty fine craft beers. There is an explosion of new small breweries in my area. I have a good supply Accumulation in the frig at this moment. I plan on drinking one tonight.

Here is the artwork for Polygamy Porter. It's a pretty good brew, too!

We tried it (the beer) in a beautiful place, Panguitch Utah on a road trip it was quite good. The Wasatch Brewery has a good sense of humor on several of their labels.

Finally found it in Spencers in Morro Bay, summer beers ARE changing to winter beers here on the central coast.
Medium weight body in a fizzy yellow color is really (a good) different, with a two stage hop hit. The last blast, almost peppery type heat of dry bitterness.


Chug 'em if you got 'em, , ,

Homepage - Odell Brewing Company

A nephew of ours worked at NB awhile back. On a visit to the brewery he invited me on a " business trip." He grabbed a case of Abbey and off we went on Company Fat Tire Cruisers to Odell, a half mile down the road. Once there we exchanged it for a case of Cutthroat Porter. Rode back to NB. My kinda commerce!

Brewing a Sustainable Industry: New Belgium Brewing Company Aims for Zero Emissions, by David Wann : Articles : Terrain.org

Not only do they make a great product, New Belgium is a great responsible company that values their employees. Just in case you were looking for an excuse to pick up another six pack!
