I feel ya. Spring is coming, I see me spending less in brewing and more on jeeping now!
Have you heard of Homebrew Talk. It's another forum, I spend a lot of time flipping back and forth between this and that one.
What's y'all's hefeweizen like?

I should be bottling my first all grain pale ale tomorrow. I'm really excited to see how it turned out. I used 3 different types of hops in it.

I got 212 bottles of homebrew bottled in various stages! Ruination clone, noble pils clone, altbier, wezenbier, Scottish ale(excellent!), and Boston lager (ale) clone
Got my hands in some free kegs, so now trying to decide my kegging route I want to take.

I really want to try biab or all grain, I just can't afford the equip or time right now. Maybe when kids get older.
Let us know how it is!

I'll give you some advice too, go ahead and order/buy your next kit. As soon as you have a fermenter free, brew it up! Work on that pipeline, because you will always want more stocked up and aging before you finish whatever is ready to drink.

lol, already thumbing through the recipe kits trying to decide what's next. As for getting started, just always wanted to try and finally did. Thinking about picking up some soft copper tubing from HD/Lowes to make an IC.

Two suggestions for everyone.

Brewers best Scottish ale kit. Cheap and good tasting. Great beer to introduce people into darker beers or beers with a little more flavor.

A Boston lager clone I just made, closest clone I have made yet! Color is dead in, smell and flavor are extremely close. Very happy and impressed with it.
I'll post recipe if anyone wants it.

I started with a Mr Beer kit last christmas. I brewed some chezch pilsner. Came out alright. Still have a few bottles left hiding in the back of the pantry.

Next thing I did was a 1 gallon batch of apple cider. Really simple and easy to do. I added some cranberry juice to some of the bottles for a little more flavor. Some of my bottles blew up during a pasteurizing incident lol Turned out pretty well besides the bottle bombs.

Right now I have a 1g batch of Caribou Slobber in the primary. Once that is bottled I have a 1g batch of Hefeweizen to brew. After these are all done I have a 5g of Amber Ale that I would like to add some fruit flavor to. Maybe some fresh cherries or blueberries.

I would love to have the recipe for the Boston lager. I don't have any homebrew going at the moment, but I do have 5 gallons of BlackBerry wine in the fermenter. Got the berrys from my fatherinlaws berry patch. I'm using 19 pounds of them.

1lb rice flaked (I used 1lb rice syrup)
Steep at 155 for 20-39 min

2lb DME amber
3.3 lbs LME (I use LME for late extract addition at flame out to keep color lighter)

1 oz Perle 8% 60 min
Irish moss 15 min
1 oz Saaz 4% 5 min


Yeast WLP 002


28 IBU
OG 1.049
FG 1.016

Anyone going to the Lexington Fest of Ales this Friday the 30th? If you like craft brew, it is a must do.

I won't be at that, but I'll be at the UP fall beer fest in Marquette on the 7th. put on by the brewers guild and has been awesome the last few years. went to the keweenaw brewfest on Saturday, not as much craft beer but had some michigan breweries and was still a good festival.
