^ Nice

I've been meaning to brew a saison for months. Sometime I'll get around to it

Yeah, I'm not complaining as I love pumpkin beer and Pumking is a very good one, but it was strange to see it so early in the year.

Speaking of Southern Tier, anyone here have any opinions on the Choklat Oranj?

If this beer goes well I'm definitely trying a red ale next. They got some CRAZY flavour kits there. After making a few (successful) ones, I'm going to try making one from scratch. For now, it's the kits.

Someday I'd like to make some mead, too. Getting 20lbs of honey is pretty difficult though.

Can't stand "craft" or "boutique" beers.
Gimme an iced cold Budweiser in a
frosted mug.
So cold that it burns going down.

LMAOOOOOO
NICE! Boy howdy that was a knee slapper right there!


ANYWAY! I was doing a little grocery shopping (got me some Ahi Tuna on the cheap!) and I saw a beer that made me decide that I would go ahead and cheat. Mother Earth Brewing Cali Creamin' Vanilla Cream ale. This thing is bomb. Nice and malty up front with a vanilla cream soda flavor on the backend. I think I'm gonna like it here in San Diego.

Make a small batch. My friend and I made a gallon before just to try it out, and it wasn't hard.

Little bit of a rocky start with the homebrew. The fermenting wasn't going so hot for the past 2 days. Absolutely nothing at all was happening. No "Krausen" was present (krausen is the bubbles from the fermentation). The wort was just flat and uneventful.

So I figured since there's only 2 things involved with making that foam, yeast and sugar, and the sugar (malt) was definitely present, I figured it had to be the yeast. So I grabbed a new pack of yeast from the brew shop and pitched a second batch of it.

Seems I was right and it was the yeast. The fermentation is off to a fantastic start today! It's only been about 10 hours or so and the airlock is going nuts with activity.

My only hope is that since I had to take the lid off the fermenter and stir the new yeast in, I didn't introduce any contaminants into my brew. I sterilized the shit out of everything so I should be good, but you never know.

Bottling day: Within 2-3 weeks

Nice, I've only brewed once and that was over a year ago. I'd like to do a home recipe saison sometime before the new year

Do it, man! I had fun brewing. I think it's going to be a regular thing for me as long as I can afford it. The kits cost $60 for 5 gallons of beer, which isn't bad. Roughly two and a half to three 24 cases of beer. Just gotta wait for it is all

I was in La Jolla today at the beach, and I decided to stop in at La Jolla Brewing Company afterwards. Had their Sunny Jim IPA and Bird Rock Brown. The Brown was good. Wasn't that impressed with the IPA. Also had Grapefruit Sculpin. That was out of this world.

Helping my friend brew on Friday. We're doing the last of the beer for his wedding. We already have ten gallons of porter and ten gallons of a märzen. This weekend we're doing ten gallons of an IPA. It's going to be a fun wedding.

First one I made was an Irish Red, from a kit. Flavor was decent, but it didn't carbonate as well as I'd like. I was using the sugar drops in bottle, and apparently they aren't very good and people recommend weighing and adding the sugar yourself.

Had a nitro Latitude 33 Vanilla Porter today with dinner. picked up a Stone Saison 6-pack on the way home.

The porter was awesome. super creamy due to the nitro and the vanilla flavor was out of this world. Probably would have been great to drink with chocolate cake and ice cream.

The Saison is really good too. I've never had a Saison before, so the spices caught me off guard at first, but it's nice and refreshing once you get used to it.
