After many months of not brewing, I finally made another batch today. This one is a doppelbock, and it should be just over 7% ABV. I did a partial mash today, with 4.5 pounds of ground malts, and 6 pound of malt extract. I added 1 ounce of Fuggle pellet hops and 2 ounces of fresh (frozen) Nugget hops. It's fermenting with a simple dry lager yeast. I plan to let it ferment for 3-4 weeks before kegging it. I also plan to add a few cups of fresh brewed coffee at kegging time, I just haven't decided what kind yet.
I have tried several interesting beers since I last wrote, and hope to have a few reviews posted soon, so keep checking back.
This is Dale (to the right,) he's by brother in-law. This is what happens to him after I give him too many home brews! I think he sat in the corner and played his ukulele (or ooh-ka-lay-lee as he pronounced it,) for well over an hour. We all get through the holidays different, but they are always better with a great beer in hand.
