Q3 is over.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.
|Summer Lovin' American Wheat|
This quarter I went back to brewing a ridiculous amount of beer. I brewed 8 batches and 42 gallons of beer July through September.
At the moment, I'm not on pace to break last year's record, but I am on track to brew almost 150 gallons by the end of 2021.
|T.Ra.Sh. Light Mexican Lager|
The 8 batches of beer I brewed were:
- Summer Lovin' American Wheat
- T.Ra.Sh. Light Mexican Lager
- Sin Lima Mexican Lager
- Shoddy Pale Ale
- N.T.S. Faux Pilsner
- Rocktoberfest Lager
- Will-o'-Wisp Pumpkin Ale
- Falling Leaves Autumn Saison
|Sin Lima Mexican Lager|
As I mentioned on a couple of other blog posts, I'm concentrating on brewing existing recipes in 2021 rather than coming up with many new recipes.
I did brew one new recipe this quarter, N.T.S. Faux Pilsner. This is only my 3rd new recipe of 2021, considerably down from the 18 new recipes in 2020.
|Shoddy Pale Ale|
I'm also continuing to brew more lagers than in previous years.
This quarter, I've brewed 3 (T.Ra.Sh. Light Mexican Lager, Sin Lima Mexican Lager and Rocktoberfest Lager). This brings me to 8 total for the year, which is already over the 7 brewed last year.
|N.T.S. Faux Pilsner|
All the batches this quarter have been all-grain in the Anvil Foundry. I'm now up to 27 batches on the Foundry. I have not even had the Foundry for a year, so that is a lot.
I got in another 6 Pack Project homebrew (see T.Ra.Sh. Light Mexican Lager vs Ska Mexican Logger and Sin Lima Mexican Lager vs Ska Mexican Logger).
I had Sin Lima to evaluate side-by-side this quarter, but decided that T.Ra.Sh. was actually a better match to Ska's Mexican Logger.
All of the beers are turning out fantastic. I'm continuing to experiment with things like overnight mashes and fermenting warm with Kveik yeast.
I still have not gotten another pitch of the Lithuanian Farmhouse yeast, but the Kveik Voss I've used a couple times seems close enough in character that I might just stick with it.
|Will-o'-Wisp Pumpkin Ale|
Q4 will be more of the same. I'll brew a few more lagers, and I'll continue to do more existing recipes than new ones.
Of course, I'll have to come up with a 2021 X-Mas Ale.
|Falling Leaves Autumn Saison|
