I'll continue on with kegging English bitters, IPA, sparkling ales, wheat beers, Amber ales, pale ales and draught bitter. Have enough bottled stout variety for years.
Cheers for 2017 - made another year, you beauty.

Was going to do a SMaSH today with Briess pale ale malt and Dr Rudi aiming for 3.9%. But I am far too hungover to attempt this today and will probably get it done tomorrow.

Belgian Strong Honey Saison Vinegar.

Just sampled an experiment. WB06 plus Belle Saison together in light extract plus some honey and dark brown sugar. 1.086 down to 1.014.

More clove than my Xmas ham... About the same amount of honey aroma.

Just mixed 4 tallies and a stubbie worth of unpasteurised apple cider vinegar.

Should make great vinegar! If not beer. If this works I'll dump some more bottles of beer into it.

So another experiment...

The more normal saison about to be bottled is tasting great out of the fermenter luckily.

There's actually another WAYB 2017 thread here

 

Mods, should we merge the two to save confusion/doubling up?

Revisit a couple old favourites, Coffee Stout and Cream Ale, and start playing with different sours and such, try and challenge myself a bit.

Did a lot of pale ales and IPA's in my first year of brewing, time to explore the darker side

Another oyster stout, some belgians, APA, IPA, and maybe a schwarzbier.

Recipes aside, the main thing I aim to do is brew better. (Fresh yeast, better temp control). Quality, not quantity.

I've got a fridge full of Xmas beers that are going to take me forever to drink :(
However I'm still going to crank out a few cubes of my house saison/hibiscus saison and experiment with a few different yeasts.
Having no mates locally since I've moved has become a problem, can't easily get rid of average beers when I want to brew new things.

Historically these threads are recipe threads (as in: 'what are you actually brewing'?)

Not that I'm not interested in people's annual plans - just sticking up for tradition.

Should we stick to convention and start a thread titled "What are you brewing 2017"?
