Olde Smoking Jacket, 10.11 ABV, 68.0 IBU
OG 1.099 FG 1.022 5 gallons

All UK hops and UK base malt into a sort of a big Old Ale/English Barleywine thingy. Medium amber hue with a smoky, oaky, caramel and earthy overtones with noticeable scotch and iodine. Some grassy hop on the palate and pretty much no hint of the pepper. Dry clean finish with a medium body. Still quite "green" and should take to a few years of aging.

woo hoo!
A Mild without Crystal!

I redid Grays Huggable Ale without Crystal as well, pretty much the same malt bill as yours minus the Rauchmalt of course but I have a .5 pound of Biscuit malt in mine.

Brewed in Imperial Stout this weekend:

15lbs Optic
2lbs Roasted Barley
2lbs Pale Chocolate Malt
1lb Flaked Barley
1lb Flaked Rye
1lb Caramunich
1lb Crystal 80

70IBU of Magnum at 60min
7IBU of Willamette at 10min

Fermenting low 60s with WY1762 - Belgian Abbey II

Looks great right now, huge Kräusen on it that is blowing off. Excited to see where this one goes. Used the 1762 for some fruity notes and malt accent with a hit of alcohol. Smells super clean thus far (aside from dark fruit) so I think it’ll be a hit.

Planning a spelt session saison for this weekend. To be amply hopped with Styrians. Have this big bag of spelt and not sure what else to do with it. Reckon I’ll have to do a cereal mash.

Sour cherry imperial porter just went on one of the tap lines. Still under-carbed, but it tastes pretty nice! Mouthfeel is a touch thick for my tastes, but otherwise I am fairly happy with it.

Crap. Are we supposed to post our entire recipes? Too much work. Finally switched to all-grain about 2 months ago.

Wednesday, I brewed a Belgian Wit with Blood oranges. Friday, I brewed a Chimay yellow label clone with chimay yeast and on Monday, I brewed an Imperial Stout. OG was 1.095..with this yeast, it should come in around 12.5-13% ABV. No idea what additions to bourbon soaked chips? IDK. Tonight, i brewed a honey hefeweizen and will probably add blueberries to the primary in 2-3 weeks.

I have some Brett strains from wyeast that were nearly expired at the homebrew store. Probably going to do a Boulevard Saison Brett Clone with those in 2 weeks.

My all Citra IPA that I kegged 2 months ago is starting to grow stale so I’ll brew another galaxy 8% DIPA sometime in December.

Um..that’s all

The carboy above with that sexy pellicle is a berliner weisse that just got a ruhubarb and strawberry addition 2 weeks ago. Should be ready to go soon.
