Mandarian Bavarian Pilsner 06/21/14 - update 8/8/14

Floor Malted Weyermann Pilsner
Mandarian Bavarian Hops
Hop blasting

I am looking forward to when this is done fermenting and conditioning.

Update: This is nice. Hops have a little citrus fruit going on. I would double aroma hop next time.

Drie Pale Ale 06/07/2014

I picked up a vial of WLP644 - 3 Fonteinen Brett strain.

I woke up early today and made a pale ale and pitched a 5 day 1300 ml starter of WLP644.
Did a different kind of hopping for this one.
40g of Belma in the mash. I forgot to take the mash ph and didn't add any salts.
No bittering.
56g of Cascade and 56g of Simcoe in the whirlpool for 10 minutes.
Pitched at 70.

Yesterday was the anniversary of D-Day. God bless all of those that sacrificed to make the world a better place. Rest in peace Uncle John.
