Hefeweizen – Batch 56 Bottled

So, on Saturday 8/10 I bottled my Hefeweizen, which I also call my Witty Weizenbeir.  Final gravity came out to be 1.014, giving me an alcohol percentage of 5.5%.  Not too shabby. The Hallertauer aroma is wonderful, the beer has a good malt body with a nice show of hop flavor.  Definitely did a good …

Hefeweizen and Peach Hefeweizen – Batch 56 and 57

Hallertauer Hops in wort

It’s been since October since I’ve brewed.  So, decided to do a hefeweizen.  But I also wanted to do a peach hefeweizen.  Well, why not do both?  So I did. After much contemplation I decided on doing one big 10 gallon batch, and I will put half with peaches in a secondary.  That way I’ll …

Weizenbeir, Hefeweizen, Whatever – Batch 52

Witty Weizenbeir

Finally bottled my wheat beer tonight.  Final gravity was 1.010, giving me my standard 5.25 alcohol by volume for this beer. Taste was lacking some of the normal wheat sweetness, but had plenty of wonderfully Hallertauer hoppiness.  Can’t wait till it’s bottle conditioned.

Rob the Pirate

So, Saturday I was brewing with my buddy Rob, originally intending to just hang out and help him brew, but since we had to run to Let’s Brew for supplies I decided to brew a wheat beer. So brew we did.  We did Rob’s Scottish ale in my big pot and my wheat beer in …

My Liberty Brews- Bottling Batch 29 and 30

On Tuesday the  18th my brother in law and I bottled up both batch 29 and 30.  Given that both of these recipes used Liberty hops exclusively, I decided (albeit in a hurry and forgetting the names I had previously come up with) to give both beers names keeping with the spirit of liberty. We …

Pale Ale and a Hefeweizen- Batch 29 and 30

Today had some friends over and we brewed two beers simultaneously.  Been thinking about what to brew for a few days, knowing today was coming, and was having my normal difficulties of deciding.  I knew I wanted a pale ale but didn’t care for the recipes I’ve seen, and I wanted to use my Liberty …
