Long weekend is followed by a week with the house to myself so I am gonna brew my box off. Making a second batch of Skunk Steam (an APA brewed with calif lager yeast), as tasted at the Perth get together on the weekend, bottled the weekend before, but already quite nice. JW Trad minimash, DME, caramalt, amarillo, cascade, Wyeast 2112.
Then something big and scary with the trappist high gravity yeast Goat gave me. Might search around for some recipes but so far I'm thinking of
1.5kg liquid wheat malt
maybe a small mash of a kg or two if I'm feeling energetic
maybe a touch of chocolate or crystal malt
a can of black cherries? (hmmm not sure)
bittered with NB
flavoured with tettnanger or similar
any comments on this "recipe"welcomed...
