Look at this. Soon people will be able to brew BudCoorLite and SierraBostonHook in their own homes without knowing anything more than how to push buttons. Isn't life in the modern world just grand?

Ha! That thing is great.

I missed this post as I was drinking great beer in Belgium at the time.

This weekend Saturday I brewed 10 gallons of Czech Speziál pilsner.

OG 1.058

12 lbs. Best German Pilsner malt
1.5 lbs. Weyermann Munich I malt
5 oz. Weyermann acid malt
6 lbs. Briess CDW pilsner DME (added to last 15 minutes of the boil)

Mash for 145°F for 60 min, 152°F for 30 min

2 oz. Saaz leaf FWH
2 oz. Cluster boil
2 oz. Saaz 15 min
2 oz. Hallertauer Mittelfruh 0 min

Split into two 6.5 gal carboys. One pitched with WY2308 Munich, the other pitched with WY2001 Urquell. Fermenting in my temperature controlled fridge at 50°F right now.

Hey Gunnar,

I’ve got ciders in the works right now. This coming weekend I need to order in some supplies and get the spring & summer beers lined out. If I don’t have summer brewing done before the fish start to run, I won’t have time to brew.

Did you see this? : -) : -)

Yes, I did see that, Hal. Very cool.

One of the best things about the trip to Belgium last fall was enjoying the fresh Belgian table beers that never get shipped to the U.S. Chimay had a Doree, which was fantastic. Next on my brewing schedule is brewing some of those Belgian singles, as they are called here (over there, they are usually just called Blond).

I found this hilarious. I am NOT implying that anyone posting here is a beer snob as I very much enjoy craft beer and the people with the talent to brew it.
