2020 Q3 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: Sheppy's Blog: Brew Stats.

On Your Left

Just like Q1 and Q2 we brewed a bunch in Q3, and I am on pace to brew over 150 gallons in 2020 ... significantly more beer than any year in the past. 

In the third quarter, I had 8 brew days, 9 batches, 47 gallons of beer.


In seems unlikely that I'll be able to keep up this pace, but I've said that before and I certainly have not slowed down yet.

This quarter, I brewed:

2 of the beers this quarter were lagers (T.Ra.Sh. Light Mexican Lager and Galena Dave's Pale Lager). Ironically, they are also both recipes that I've already brewed in 2020.

Lithuanian Lovin' Summer Lovin' Wheat was a double batch of beer. Half of the wort was fermented with US05 and half was fermented with a Lithuanian Farmhouse yeast I've been playing with this quarter.

One Hundred Hoppy Brown Ale

As I mentioned (see Lithuanian Farmhouse Yeast), a local brewer harvested this Lithuanian Farmhouse yeast from his fermentor and I used it to brew a few beers this quarter (Sveikas Lithuanian Farmhouse AleLithuanian Lovin' Wheat, Lithuanian Strong Pale Ale).

I still have some of this yeast in my fridge, so I'm brewing at least one more with the yeast.

Galena Dave's Pale Lager

I also got in another of the Homebrew Colorado 6 Pack beersOne Hundred Hoppy Brown Ale is a wonderfully hoppy brown ale inspired by a local beer that doesn't exist anymore, but I thought was great enough to add to my Colorado 6 Pack list. 

The Beer Model has brewed with me more this quarter than ever before, and in fact had to take over the Will-o-Wisp brew day on her own while I went out to get propane. 

Will-o'-Wisp Pumpkin Ale

So, it was a busy brewing quarter. I expect 4th quarter will also be busy, but I don't know if it will be as busy as the 3rd. I guess we'll see.

Not sure what else will happen in the 4th quarter. 

I know I'll brew at least one more Lithuanian Farmhouse Ale Yeast

Of course, I have to brew an X-Mas Ale soon. 

I hope to brew another lager or two in the next 3 months.

Other than that ... I don't know. I guess you'll have to stay tuned to find out.
