    You're hooked now ville. Welcome to the home brewing club, you are now allowed to be a pretentious beer snob :lol:

    I'm stoked, finally finished the 3 tap keezer so I should be able to pour my first beer on wed/Thurs! Got a Sorachi blonde, kinda sorta English IPA because my dumbass forgot to buy crystal malt lmao, and a rye stout.

    Next up will be a Sage and Basil Brett Saison

    Schwarztbier! Definitely a style that I never see here.

    Pulling a sample from my sage and basil saison today to see if I want to pitch some Brett or leave it as is :belly:

    Brewing again today, a non planned random pale ale with wheat and rye malts added.
    Using up some of the left over hops, Williamette, EKG, Cascade, Centennial.

    Fourth beer of the vacation, works starts again tomorrow, going back to brewing larger scale once more.

    Had planned to brew two different Berliner Weisse as well, trying out both sour mash and sour kettle, but might move to another flat soon, if so will postpone those as wella s the planned meads until later this fall.

    I seem to have forgotten to post how my first beers turned out. Seeing how I only have a couple of bottles of each left, I guess they were drinkable.
    The DIPA (8.5% ~130 IBU) was a bit disappointing to me, but my friends loved it. Need to adjust the hops a bit for the next try to get a bit more citrusy notes in. And I think I'll try and make the next batch with a bit lower ABV. This got people way too drunk way too fast. :lol:
    The black IPA turned out much better (IMO). Really nice roasty taste with a bit of bitter chocolate in the taste. I might try adding some coffee for the next one. Probably fine-tuning the hops as well, but over all this turned out really well. There's definitely a big difference in the taste between my first tasting soon after bottling it and now after, hmm, six or so weeks. :beerwink:

    Hahaha omg with an IBU like that I would barf EVERYWHERE :lol: Once something gets beyond like 30 IBU count me out lol. I bet Brian would love the black IPA though!

    Mmmm, now that's more my style. Save us some of the Berliners, pretty please? :cheers:

    I promised myself I wouldn't, but I gave in and picked up a 4 pack of delicious pie in a bottle. I know its a fruity "chick" beer, but it's hotter than hell in FL right now and blueberries are refreshing, so don't judge me!

    And hopefully I'll be having some of the French Toast Double Brown Ale and the Imperial Maple Bacon Coffee Porter on Thursday :belly:

    Nice! Youll have a bunch of hit and misses haha. What do hops run you in Finland? Ive been toying around with my old black ipa recipe or a pliney clone but the hops alone will be like $30. Ive been pretty busy here lately. Bottled up my Sage and Basil Saison. Decided against the brett on that one since I like younger fruity brett and theres too many strong flavors and aromas for the brett to come close to peaking through. Will be bottling a rum oaked aged imperial porter soon. Brewed up a Honey Kolsch last week and ill be doing a Smoked Oatmeal Stout in a week or two. Fruit has been pretty cheap here so I picked up a few pounds of raspberries and cherries for use in wild/sours in the future

    American hop pellets go for something like 7 to 10 euros per 100 grams. So, yeah, making an IPA costs a lot.

    This was excellent. It was such a well run event. Lines were short, the price was good and i was able to sample every beer i wanted. There were some real winners in the lineup.

    Bottled my second batch of black IPA yesterday. Only 6.3% this time. IBUs are around 150, and I used quite a lot of hops at the end of the boil and for dry-hopping. So a very bitter and hoppy beer.
    Next batch will be a single hop (Centennial) hopped IPA. Probably brewing it on Yule week so it's ready in mid January for my housewarming party. :beerwink:

    Bitter bitter bitter! I'd like to try one of your cottonmouth bitter black ipas :lol:

    Let's see, for me I've the recently kegged my wheat stout. Tomorrow I'll be transferring a beer to my barrel. Basically its a traditional lambic grainbill fermented with yeast bay melange sour yeast. Adding to my barrel tomorrow with an Omega 'All the Bretts' strain to sit around and age for a year or so. Next weekend I'll brew up some sort of abbey beer. Not sure exactly what yet though.

    Had a taste of the Spencer Trappist Ale, not bad at all! I need a second (third, fourth...) try, but the first impression was more than OK.
    And I have a Samichlaus in the fridge for this weekend, really curious to check what this strong beer (14%) tastes like.

    Nice! Yea we won't be in town early this year. Trying to bank vacation days for next year so I think we are driving to ft Lauderdale the night before. Where are you staying before the cruise?

    I noticed you had a few beers from the Estonian brewery you gave a couple from. Sounds like good stuff!

    We're staying on South Beach before the cruise. Maybe we could meet up in the port before broading? We're renting a car for the whole stay, so we're driving to the port. I take it you guys are driving down to Fll?

    Anything would be appreciated since I don't think we can get any Finnish beers at all here. Is that Amorphis one still available?

    For styles anything Sour, gose, stout, saison.

    Got a fresh bottle of Pliny the Elder from fellow cruiser Markku after his trip to California for Yule and New Year. Bottled on December 21st. And, yes, it is indeed a fine brew. :beerwink:

    And I'm slowly starting to recover from the weekend in Berlin. Got to taste some nice hard to get in Europe Stone brews and loads of German and Polish beers. A found out Martin van Drunen isn't an (triple) IPA guy. That really broke Markku's heart. :lol:

    Pliny :beerbang:

    I spent 99% of the entire trip for California Deathfest in search of Pliny and watching Bolzer.

    I drank a lot of Pliny (just tapped too!) and Bolzer was awesome (what I remember) :lol:

    I still haven't had a Pliney. Living on the polar opposite side of the country sucks ass when it comes to distribution. I'm thinking about asking one of the implementers at work if they'd be able to bring a bottle of local stuff from wherever they go.

    You should totally.

    My two favorite IPAs are Pliny and Bells Two Hearted Ale (MI).

    It's among the top 50 overall beers on Ratebeer. :beerwink:


    I had my housewarming party last weekend, and I made two beers for the event, one West Coast IPA and a mango IPA. Both turned out really nice and seems my friends liked them too because there's none left. The mango one was really good, and I definitely need to brew that again.

    And I finally got a can of Surly's version of Todd the Axeman (The Amager version is one of my all-time favourite beers). A friend of mine brought it from the States after their last tour.

    ^^ The Imperial Prunum was given to me generously by a bar manager in Warzaw, it was a damn bitch to open with that wax seal though!

    Never had Pliny the Younger, the Elder I've been fortunate enough to have on many occasions.
    It was actually widely available on draught in Philly in May last year during WBC and CBC, so sometimes was like "hmm, I'll have another beer. Oh what the hell, might as well get another Pliny..." :lol:

    You should brew a New England style IPA Ville!
    Screw that awful pith like atringent harsh bitterness, hop juice and drinkability FTW! :beerbang:

    Haven't brewed at home sine June/July or so, really need to find time for it soon, but being unemployed takes a lot of damn time!
    Guess I spend 12-14h per day 7 days a week with that crap, I need a job so I can have some spare time!

    Scored 2 bottle of The Abyss (scotch and brandy barrel versions) plus some Bodhi and some White Raja. Not a bad haul.

    Kegged both versions of Headbanger NEIPA on Saturday. One batch had 1968 and the other had 1318. Bottled 2 of each just to see the difference.

    Brewed 10 gallons of Mic Czech, 1- 2 mic Czech Pils. Name is from Chance Garnetts (formerly of Skeletonwitch) mic check before a show. One batch has 2278 and the other has 2308 just for fun.

    That's 2 brew session down in 2017 already.

    We don't get Russian River down here and I always forget to ask west coast people for some haha.

    I'll be doing multiple starfruit beers coming up, stephs friends mom brought a shit ton over. Going to toss a pound and a half into this gallon of 100% Brett beer I've just had sitting around as a way to top off my barrel. Picked up a sour strain from the yeast bay so I'm going to check that out and see if I'll toss a bunch of starfruit into that too. Remainder might go into maybe an IPA? I haven't done one of those in a while haha.

    I think I'll try a NEIPA for the summer. In the wintertime I prefer the piney notes and bitterness of WCIPAs. That said, damn the Warpigs' Foggy Geezer NEIPA was delicious in their restaurant in Copenhagen on New Year's.
