2016 Q2 SheppyBrew Stats

As you may know, the Brewery likes to post quarterly updates on how much we have brewed. You can see all these updates (including the one you are reading right now) by following this link: http://blog.ericshepard.com/search/label/Brew%20Stats .

Q2 of 2016 at the SheppyBrew Brewery was fairly busy. I brewed 2 batches in April, 1 in May, and 3 in June.

Those 6 batches were 30.5 gallons, putting me at 50.5 gallons for the year. I'm on pace for right around the legal 100 gallons per brewer.

4 of the batches were new recipes (Mor'du Scottish Ale, Tortuga Golden Ale#WeAreGroot, and T.Ra.Sh. Light Mexican Lager). This makes 6 new recipes so far this year.
#WeAreGroot, and T.Ra.Sh. Light Mexican Lager are both lagers. This makes 5 lagers so far in 2016. I am pretty sure that is the most lager batches I've done in a year. As we are only half-way through, I should blow away this record.

Tortuga Golden Ale

As you may remember, I am keeping my eye on the 2015 BJCP Style Guidelines for brewing ideas this year. Mor'du Scottish Ale (14B. Scottish Heavy) and Tortuga Golden Ale (12A. British Golden Ale) marked a couple of new categories off my list.

#WeAreGroot is an interesting beer brewed with 5 pounds of sweet potatoes in the grain bill. It is my first sweet potato beer. It was an interesting experiment to say I'd tried it. Probably am not planning on doing another beer with sweet potatoes, but I guess you never know. 

Hail Storm Summer Saison

The 3rd quarter brewing schedule is starting off very slowly. So far, I have not brewed anything in Q3. I do hope to brew this weekend. Stay tuned on this blog to see what I do end up brewing.

Last time I went camping, I collected some spruce tips. I have them in the freezer right now. I should brew something with them pretty soon.

Don't forget, you can also always follow us on SheppyBrew's Instagram FeedSheppyBrew's Facebook Page; Sheppy's Twitter Feed; and SheppyBrew's Website.

Again, if you specifically want to check out these Quarterly Reports, bookmark Sheppy's Blog: Brew Stats. Hopefully I'll get the 3rd Quarter report out earlier after the Quarter ends.

Take care everyone.

Go Blackhawks!
