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 add...coffee? 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.


Just to discuss, honey won’t add sweetness. As to the Berliner, that beer should turn around much faster than what you’re projecting.

You’re right about the honey. Did a honey porter w/ orange zest in September. True and a waste of money but it doesn’t thin the mouthfeel out like table sugar, right? I was going for an increased OG without loosing too much texture.

The Weisse was brewed i September...didn’t see a pellicle until mid-October and then added the fruit. I was planning on racking it around Christmas. Sooner?

I guess an FG reading / taste test should answer that question. What do you think should be the time frame?

Lacto doesn’t always throw a pellicle. It takes time because over time it will create a barrier against oxygen. If it is throwing CO2, the pellicle is less likely to form due to the CO2 concentration.
