About 10 1/2 hours with setting up and cleaning. Since there all malty brews I did 2 of them boiling for only half an hour to save time or I'd be in trouble with swmbo

Today's brew is an English Red IPA, using a similar recipe to my Red X IPA but with English hops and yeast this time:

English Red IPA
1.066 OG
1.017 FG
6.5% ABV
18 SRM
47 IBU
20L

5kg Red X Malt
500g Munich
200g Flaked Barley
150g CaraAroma
125g Biscuit Malt
125g Caramunich

30g Magnum 60 mins

25g Fuggles 15 mins
25g EKG 15 mins

25g Fuggles 80° steep
25g EKG 80° steep

50g Fuggles dry hop
50g EKG dry hop

Mash at 64°
Ferment with S-04 at 19°
This sounds interesting @strange-steve - been thinking of doing something similar but with a Maris Otter base.

Do you think Maris Otter with some medium crystal, caramalt, maybe some vienna and some cara-pils would work OK for a non-red variation?

I don't see why not :thumba:
I have to say though I'm loving this Red X malt, so rich and flavourful. I certainly recommend trying it.

Not brewed anything today, but my wife is off up north for 5 days on Sunday and I have five empty fermenters with a decent comp coming up early February. The airline she is flying with are having rolling strikes. Keeping my fingers crossed she gets away.

Back to lagers for me for a brew or two. Today's effort was a re-brew of my Bavarian Pilsner that I enjoyed rather a lot earlier in the year. If it comes out the same again then I'll be more than happy.

A little past the brewday, but got some English IPA into a cask and a second carboy to be bottled in the next few days.

Marris otter, golden promise, Simpsons English caramalt, and some dark munich, plus Target, EKG, and Fuggles hops.

Yesterday I brewed 5l with
1kg Maris Otter
500g Halcyon Pale
500g Munich Light
50g Oats

Hops were:
20g Northern Brewer, spaced out over the boil time
8g Kents Golding added when the wort was at 75c

Yeast
US West coast M44

This is going to be left in the FV over xmas and then I'll probably dry hop for a couple days too

The wife's away I have a 2hr window to brew before going on the lash.
No boil no chill American wheat beer.
3kg base malt
2kg wheat
700g Munich
200 carapils
100g acid malt
Hops:
100g centennial
100g equinox

The plan is to mash for 45 then bring the wort to 80 degrees bang hops in and put in the cube to chill.
First time going with no boil. Be interesting

Bottled my five grain lager on Friday and have just bottled a litre of sloe gin that was made in autumn 2018. I have kept the alcohol-soaked sloes for some kind of beer making experiment...
