So, here we go ... vote as early and often as you would like. If you don't like what I put in the poll, tell me what style you think I should brew in the "Other" choice.
NOTE: Before making your choice, you can scroll down for more information on the poll choices.
For the choices that I put into the poll, here is some more info:
- Eric The Awful -- This is a hopped-up version of Eric's Irish Red. With the malt bill, is it an Irish Red? With the extra hops, is it an IPA? I don't know. I don't care. It is rich and hoppy. Should be a wonderful beer.
- Ale to the Chief: Honey Porter -- Of course, I am sure you all remember the whole story about Obama's home-brew recipes being released. If you actually read this blog, you probably even remember that I converted the Honey Porter recipe to all-grain. Perhaps I should brew it next.
- Boo Berry Wheat -- My wife (aka the SheppyBrew Beer Model) had a blueberry wheat over the summer that she really liked. I, of course, have a wonderful Summer Lovin' American Wheat recipe that I have used as a base for an apricot beer. I can certainly add blue-berry puree to this base beer to create "Boo Berry Wheat" (the name that the Beer Model came up with).
In case it makes a difference in your vote, here is what I already have ready to drink or in the pipeline:
- In the keggerator, I have a mostly-full keg of Ello Poppet Czech Pilsner, which is a wonderfully flavored Bohemian - style pilsner.
- Also in the keggerator, I have a mostly-empty keg of Summer Lovin' American Wheat, a light refreshing wheat beer with a hint of orange and coriander.
- I have lots of bottles of Laser Salt Sandy Blonde Ale. "Gretchen", our gluten-sensitive friend will be getting a considerable amount to this blonde, lightly hopped with touch of malted oat flavor.
- Of course, everything else on my SheppyBrew inventory page is in my various beer fridges.
- Rationalité Poison d'Ereeeek, my sour mashed Flander's Red is in a secondary fermentor aging and waiting to join my ready-to-drink collection.
- Rocktoberfest Lager, my Oktoberfest-style lager, is aging in a keg, not quite ready to drink. I should put this on-tap, mid-Octoberish, though.
Let me know what you think. I am looking forward to seeing what I am going to brew next.
yo, you should put all that description stuff and telling us what you already have on hand *before* the poll.ReplyDelete
Or at least tell us that it's down there. 'Cause I'm having a blonde moment/day/week/life.ReplyDelete
Hmmm ... Well, the poll is the most important part of the post, so I didn't want to put it at the end where lots of readers would never get to it.ReplyDelete
I added the sentence "NOTE: Before making your choice, you can scroll down for more information on the poll choices."
Not sure that will completely alleviate other blondes from not seeing it, but it might help.
Thanks for the feedback.
The Boo Berry Wheat is doing quite well. I wonder how many times my wife voted.ReplyDelete
I don't know about your wife, but you should really be wondering how many times your sister voted. Hint: I don't know either, but it's a lot.ReplyDelete
I don't really care how many times anyone voted. If I wanted to prevent people from voting more than once, I would have taken steps to prevent it.ReplyDelete
Unless something happens in the next few hours, it looks like "Boo Berry" wins. I'm heading over to the LHBS to purchase ingredients around noon (Mountain Time)
Currently Eric the Awful has 12 votes; Ale to the Chief has 5 votes; Boo Berry has 15 votes; Black IPA has 2 votes.
Yep, it is official. The Boo Berry won. Despite the unfortunate name, I think it will be a good tasting beer.ReplyDelete
Interesting ... people have been continuing to vote. The white house honey porter is now winning with 22 votes. Too little too late.ReplyDelete
