What's Up!

Well, not much, I guess.  It's been a while since I posted, mostly because my last round was a double-brew madness experiment that left me with about 5 gallons of strong Scotch Ale, and 8 gallons or so of Stout.

Now I'm headed out to get some ingredients this afternoon, and we'll go to brew an Irish Red this Tuesday.

As usually is the case, I will try to send lovely updates via Twitter throughout the brew along with pictures occasionally thrown in.  If you want to brew along with me, you need about 16 gallons of water, a good 10 gallon brew system, and the following:

18 lb Pale Malt (2 row)
4 lb Cara-Pils/Dextrine Malt
2.5 lb Crystal 10L
1 lb Crystal 35L (or 40 if you can't find 35)
0.75 lb Roasted Barley

3 oz Fuggles at 4.5%AA

2 packs of Wyeast Irish Ale #1084

And a pile of water adjusting ingredients if you build water like I do (baking soda, epsom salt, salt, gypsum, chalk, etc.)

See you Tuesday!
