Well, I wish I had more brewing news but I have been fighting a cold and dealing with El Nino. For those of you who don't habla Espanol, El Nino is Spanish for The Nino. It has been raining for 4 straight days, hail, trees blown over, lightning, we have had about 5 inches of rain in the last 4 days. Pretty good for Sunny San Diego, considering we only average 8-10 inches a year. Because of this I have had to push back brewing instead I will be cleaning, transferring beer and sealing up my chest freezer.
Once I get the brew garage and chest freezer cleaned up and seal properly, I plan on putting on my Brett Gose (an accidental brett infection is a great tasting Gose). I am also going to rack the second runnings beer from my RIS. I am not sure what style it is, but it is a roasty brown beer with a nice hoppiness. It will be perfect for the cold rainy weather. I am going to check my gravity and flavor of my Dark Saison and then rack into a keg to get a little age on it. My Orval-Like beer the first picture in the previous post has really developed a nice pellicle (much thicker than the picture). I will give it another couple of months and then rack to a keg and dry hop it. I also need to check the gravity on my RIS. I think that is about it, but it already is turning into a big task.
Up soon a Schwartzbier and a Bier de Garde or a Vanilla Strong Ale.
