    Question What are you brewing?

    as i type this, i am consuming my very last bottle of homebrew. it's not a position i usually find myself in nor is it a position i like to be in. i just haven't brewed much in the last month or two.

    obviously it's time for me to start thinking about building up some stock again. i'm probably going to make some sort of hop-heavy ale in the form of a CDA or IPA. i make a killer milk stout which i'm hoping to brew up soon too.

    what about you. what you got planned?

    I've currently got a slight variation on a traditional bock which I bottled last week which I am really looking forward to drinking. It was my first all grain so fingers crossed

    In fermenters, I've got a red almost-Imperial IPA. I was going for 100 IBU, but I added to much sparge water and only ended up with 70ish.

    I've also got a 'stone soup' ale (brewed for left over ingredients).

    Up and coming, I'm going to take another crack at the Red IIPA as well as work on my brown ale(trying to get something close to the Rogue brown).

    so? hows the brewing going, chaps? i haven't been able to brew because of the weather. my fermenting fridge died for the second time in two months so i need to get my 'brewing fix' through you all.

    Brewing this on Saturday.

    But first, getting one of these on Thursday to be my big fermenter. Hopefully it fits in my fridge. If it does it'll be nice to brew a big 40l IPA (300g of hops ), otherwise it'll be a regulation 24l batch.

    nice one! i'm super jealous. i tried brewing that same recipe once upon a time but i got so sidetracked with ingredients it ended up being something completely different.

    post some pics if you can.

    No pics of the beers yet, brewing tomorrow, but I did get the new fermenter, and built a stand for it (didn't trust plywood with 45kg of beer on top of it):
