re: Homebrewing: In-Process Thread


Got curious and did a testing of beers in progress.

Saison/Wine hybrid - Meh. Not so good flat. Back in the closet it goes.

Dark farmhouse - Meh. Brett hasn't taken hold yet. A weird, muddled roast and saison spice flavor. Aroma can't make up it's mind what it wants to be. Back in the Closet it goes.

Graff - A week old and on target. Might need to add a touch of tannin.

I still need to get my trippel fermenting, but I'm out of fermenters at the moment.

And tomorrow evening I have a preliminary meeting with a couple other people here in Nola to get a brew club going. Crescent City Homebrewers are alright, but this town needs a club with some young blood in it. Hope to get one going. I need to let my Bicycle brothers know I'm cheating on them. If any of y'all know club-less people in the New Orleans area, let them know there might be a new club.

Have this going on with my farmhouse ale. I know a big part of it was the brew store milling in 6 times more specialty malt than I requested. However, I've read that you have to very careful with brett and roasted malts because it can amplify the acridness. So maybe this beer would've worked with straight saison yeast?

Doubtful. I didn't like it a week in when it was only the saison strain working on it. I'm not giving up, though. Gonna ride it out. Tried chocolate rye for the first time. I think it was only 6 ounces.

Ahh, I was talking about mine but, yeah, 6 ozs probably isn't enough to cause the issues.

I'm going to add the 2nd round of dry hopping to my 100% brett hoppy wheat today. I was planning on brewing a 100% brett baltic porter this weekend but never got around to picking up the stuff for it.

Brewed a batch of TropicAle and a DIPA extract kit with a friend in Jackson. Had an audience so it was much more of a learn to homebrew than last weekend.

Typically takes off quickly with a short fermentation time.


Brewed yesterday afternoon/evening. Pitched the dry yeast (S-04) during halftime of the Saints game. At 6:15 this morning, the blowoff tube was bubbling away. That's 9 hours. And who knows how long it had been going before I got to check on it.

re: Homebrewing: In-Process Thread




I guess I got a good fermentation. do they make a blow off tube that attaches to the top of an airlock?
