It’s been a pretty boring year….
We started 2017 with one of the hardest beers I’ve brewed to date! It was a Sam Adams Boston Lager clone, triple decoction and months lagering. It turned out pretty good, although I wont be doing a decoction anytime soon.
I then did and seemingly endless string of Hefeweizen, my favorite recipe, for summertime thirst quenching, and ended up finishing up the year with a Sierra Nevada Pale Ale clone, which I havent yet sampled but I’m sure it will be good. Right about 94 gallons for the year.
I didnt add any new equipment, or any new processes. I did taste some of my brothers “Sour” blonde ale and that has me thinking… I may have to make a few changes to make a sour. It was really good.
The first brew for 2018 may be a hefe again, but the plan is to make a Saison in February – we will see…
