2019 Q2 SheppyBrew Stats

It is July already.


The summer is flying by. The year is flying by. I'm not sure where the time has gone.

But since the 2nd quarter is done ... it is time to share SheppyBrew's 2nd quarter brewing stats.

If you are curious to check out past posts like this one ... see Sheppy's Blog: Brew Stats.

The SheppyBrew Brewery didn't have very many brew days this quarter, but I brewed bigger batches so I still ended up with a decent volume.

This quarter, we brewed 3 "batches" ...

Blackberry in Bed American Wheat (Bam-a-Lam)

Those 3 brew days yielded 25 gallons of finished beer. So, for the year, I have brewed 55.5 gallons of beer. I am well on track for that 100 gallon legal limit

My Big Brew Day "batch" (2019 BBD Blood Orange Saison Mango Pale) was actually split into two different beers. 

Half the batch got fermented with a Nottingham Yeast and I added mango flavoring ... making a Mango Pale Ale. 

The other half was fermented with a French Saison yeast with Blood Orange in secondary to give me a Blood Orange Saison.

As I mentioned in SheppyBrew 2018 Year-End Brewing Stats, I want to get more new recipes created this year. Of the 4 beers, all four are new recipes. This puts my new recipes at 8 already for 2019. Last year, I had 8 new recipes all year, so I will absolutely beat last year's total.

I also mentioned that I want to brew more lagers. None of the 2nd quarter beers are lagers, but I brewed three in the 1st quarter, which is already more than I brewed all last year. I am pretty sure I'll do more lagers this year.

I am pleased with all these beers. The Mango Pale Ale is a bit too fruity for me, but that is by design because I made it because one of my Big Brew Day guests requested it. (and she loves it by the way). I have actually been blending it with others beers, so the extra mango flavor isn't too bad.

Big Brew Day was quite a momentous event for SheppyBrew Brewery. It was the first time I've ever had other home-brewers at the house (other than the Gnomes and the Brew Model). It is also my first 10 gallon brew day. I am sure I'll do more of these sorts of things.

I think that is all I have to say about Q2.
