The first batch is done (cooling down to 70) and the second is in the mash tun.  The grains for batch 3 are measured out and ready to go.  I had to substitute Fuggles Plugs for Saaz Plugs, I hope this doesn't totally screw everything up!

Grain Bill:
  • 4 lbs. American 2 Row
  • 2 lbs. German Pilsner
  • 1 lb. Dextrine
  • 1 lb. Pale Malt
Yeast: WLP-001
  • 60 min. - Northern Brewer 1/2 oz.
  • 40 min. - Willamette 1/2 oz.
  • 20 min. - Sterling 1/2 oz.
  • also a Fuggles tea (1/2 oz. Plug) to carboy.
I'll probably just have time for this second batch today, and the third will be tomorrow morning.

Started at noon because after I returned from Woburn, I added some champagne yeast to that batch of Gelb Licht that was way way way too malty and sweet.  It's now upstairs in a 68 degree carboy.  Also, I transfered the Fool's Golden to a keg and added about 20 lbs. CO2 pressure for carbonation.


  1. 2nd batch done. All cleaned up by: 1:15am. Ready for 3rd consecutive batch tomorrow (this) morning. I've got the grains all measured out, and everything pretty much ready to go.

  2. Congratulations, sounds like you're in good shape. Looking forward to the tasting.
