Happy new year all.

Time for the 2020 version of the WAYB thread.

For me I'm in the process of downsizing from 3v to hopefully a braumeister, so will be a year of getting to know a new system.

Brews planned include:
- Berliner Weiss
- Dunkle
- India Dark Ale
- Flanders red (if I can find a good place to ferment for 12 months when I move)

Might finally give a lager/pilsner a crack as well (reckon I've probably got enough know how accumulated to not make a hash of the style).

Happy new b...year to you too.

Just put down a split batch with one fermenter with a Voss Kveik and one with Kolsch. 35C days have to be good for something, like giving orange peel flavour to beer hopefully.

Got a Brewzilla for xmas so just trying to decide what to brew on it, was thinking of my tried and tested Oatmeal XPA.. I also need to do some prep this year for a wedding next January where the brides (not a typo) have asked me to provide some summer brews for the reception, so probably need to think about what styles/recipes would be appropriate/tasty for such an event..

Appears you enjoy a saison!
I’ve brewed a couple and have turned out ok. Care to share your saison recipe? Want to do another one this weekend

Not my own recipe, it is a Saison Dupont Style that I got from the interwebs
4.9 kg Pilsner malt
227 g Vienna malt
113 g Munich malt
227 g Caramunich malt
227 g wheat malt
28g EKG 60 mins
14g Styrian Golding 5 mins
Wyeast 3724. I have also used Belle Saison, it was not quite the Saison Dupont flavour but is still very good, tho it does need a bit of extra time in the bottle to take some of the harshness out
Mash at 64

Funny how a lot of the Zombie Dust clones are so far apart, are there different versions?
Drinking a mild first one I have brewed for an age, has turned out exceptionally well, the Plum Porter I brewed I am still undecided. The Plum comes through, but I was expecting a more of a Prune flavour which is the flavour I picked up while in the UK. Also I have noticed when pouring into a pint glass from a long neck the top up seems to give stronger richer plum notes.

Brewed an APA last night, mostly to try out the cryo cascade i got from @Brewman_ .

93% Joe White pilsner
7% Bairds medium crystal

All cascade hops with the cryo in the whirpool. I'll admit that i went for an english yeast though as i have six jars of London III sitting in the fridge.

Do need to work out my colder weather brews now though.

Just brewed a rye pale ale, I haven't had a need for fining's of late but looks like they are going to be needed this brew with the rye and the wheat malt there is a lot of protein in the fermenter.
