Stock Lager, Pale Ale and Belgian Whit Brew Day!

It was a long day this November 11th.  I woke up at 6:50am.  It is the last warm day above 60 before the snow comes so I thought this would be the perfect day to brew while the kids played outside all day.

This all comes off the heels of yesterday, where I spent the majority of my Saturday fixing the new kegerator for 4 taps, filtering the Red and getting fermentors cleaned for today.  I also racked the two ciders I made a month ago to age all winter…though the honey one was still bubbling a little.

Of note, Mt Hood nearly doubled in Alpha Acid from a year ago.  Always double check new hop batches and update your calculations.

I started off the day with the first batch having a boilover. I turned off the gas to one burner and it increased it on the boilkettle.

Perfect Temp. The Therminator has got to be one of the best investments. I dropped 12 gallons of boiling wort to 68 degrees in 5 minutes. (yeah, it’s a little high now)
