I mean you probably could get away with it, i would just prefer not to keep them that long.

It's not a big deal, really

I won't lose sleep or anything

My limiting factor right now is bottles. I need to empty another 16 bombers or so for the batch I have to bottle in August, and I will have to wait to empty more to make another pale ale. I only have 6 left, so I might be buying bottles instead

re: Homebrewing: In-Process Thread
The berliner weise brew went easy last night. Nothing hard about 6 lbs of grain and a 15 min boil with no hop addition. I did add some debittered hops for shite and giggles though.

Today I decided to brew inside again. Brewing an Ipa with the grain bill of the Union jack Ipa and Amarillo and Citra hops.

re: Homebrewing: In-Process Thread
I've been homebrew-less for the past couple months. I'm fixing that problem today. Kegging a farmhouse ale, a saison, and a Cal common. The cal common is going to lager for a month, but the farmhouse and saison are ready to go. I also have a keg of a brett pale ale I've been aging that I think is ready to as well.

re: Homebrewing: In-Process Thread
Since my blueberry cream ale is ready to drink, I dumped the last three bottles of last year's blueberry wheat. All three spewed when I opened them. Also dumped the last two breakfast stouts I had, they are just too bitter for what I want.

That helped a little with the bottle situation.

You don't have a brew club up there to help with bottles?
Or flip top growlers?

How long did you age it, what hops, and was it 100% brett? After my BW I want to do a 100% brett pale ale.

re: Homebrewing: In-Process Thread
I brewed it back in mid April. It is 100% Brett claussenii. Hops are citra and cascade. It hit FG within two weeks. By a month is was tasting not so great. I put it aside to let it do its thing. Tasted it today and it's pretty damn good.

8.00 lb Pale Malt (2 Row)
2.00 lb Vienna Malt %
0.50 lb Caramel/Crystal Malt - 20L
1.00 oz Citra [14.10 %] (Dry Hop 7 days) -
0.50 oz Citra [14.10 %] (60 min)
0.50 oz Cascade [7.20 %] (15 min)
0.50 oz Citra [14.10 %] (15 min)
1 Pkgs Brettanomyces Claussenii (White Labs)

Cool, I hope to harvest my Brett from Crooked Stave and then will go with a 2 row, great western wheat, and carapils bill. I'll either add some acid malt or do a brief souring of the wort to give the brett some lactic to play with. Was thinking Centennial and Citra for hops. I'll also probably open ferment the primary and then dry hop half in secondary.

My saison has been bottled for 2 weeks now. About how long until a saison conditions well enough to start drinking. My ales are typically 3-4 weeks.

Drink up. If you don't like it and can contribute it to age, let it go longer.

What Bottomland said. Or just treat it like any other ale. I wouldn't be surprised if it was already ready to go.

re: Homebrewing: In-Process Thread
You give it a try?

I just sampled a farmhouse ale I've been working on. It used a relatively large amount of acidulated malt and was fermented with Brett lambicus. Also had a little french oak added. It stalled around 1.025. I threw in some Wyeast 3711 before I went of for vacation and it did its job and brought it down to 1.008.

The sample had a nice subtle sour bite, but is still rough around the edges. Will be interesting to see how this goes forward. I think it'll either be great or terrible.

Pitched my starter this morning and there was plenty enough activity this afternoon to open things up. I put a grain bag over the top to keep any big bugs out. I'll bottle my farmhouse wit Friday night and then transfer this to the carboy and toss in my Brett.

I want to make a saison next spring to have for the summer instead of another blueberry beer

Bottled the 360 iBuIpA tonight. Taste is Hopgasmic.

I'll trade you some of this open ferment saison for it. I should be able to remove any grass from the weed eater before bottling.

Pick up a copy of Farmhouse Ales to read this winter and that will get you really jazzed up about brewing a saison.
