Much to report on. Memorial Day weekend was a huge brew. I did it solo and it was tons of work but I have good feelings about the product. I brewed 10 gallons of Phinyweizen 5 gallons of Wendy's German lager and I'm giving the new baby cream ale another go.
The Phinyweizen is the same recipe from last year, the lager is a pils/ vienna grain bill and the cream ale is 2 row cara Munich and flaked maize. I kegged these beers last weekend and preliminary results were very promising. I plan to tap two at my sisters July 4 party and I'll let her husband chose which he prefers. Good times I suspect
The black IPA from the big brew turned out to be neither black nor and IPA. It is however very tasty just not IPA enough and citra is a weird hop to use with lots of dark malts and it's actually darker than black if such a thing is possible. I may need to revisit this In the autumn.
