No brewing for the last two weekends and I am again not going to be brewing this coming weekend as I will be in New Hampshire campaigning for…well a presidential candidate (If you know me, you know who it is, otherwise I want to follow the rules of “no talking religion or politics on your brew blog”…well except when it’s complaining about piss poor legislation as they had to do on MNB, that’s always fair game).
That being the case, Nick, Meatball and I will be brewing the two weekends after. We are going to do some lagers so that we can take advantage of the weather. I was thinking about either a German Pils or a Maibock for 10 gallon batches on one weekend. We might do another IPA by request on that weekend as well, we will see. The weekend after we are going to plan a long brew day so that we can try the recirculation that was reading about in last month’s BYO. The long and short of the technique is that you mash in two stages for 20 min each running all the water off. Now this should provide a very strong lager and we might be able to user the second runnings for another 10 gallon batch. This one is going to take some planning though.
That’s what’s on the agenda for now. Cheers!
