Bottled Joe's Duct Tape Label "Wait of the World" Strong Ale about two weeks ago.

Had a few Friday night.  If you've ever had Triple Bock it's sorta like that.  Syrupy sweet, no bitterness or hop flavor, very little carbonation and a shitload of alcohol.  It did sit in the fermenter for a loooonnnngggg time due to my laziness.  Gonna bring it upstairs, let it warm up and see if it carbonates a bit more.

What else is who home brewing?

I have in the past, but with 12 brewpubs within an hour, it's silly now.

I homebrew now and then -- mostly APA's and IPA's and sometimes a good session type ale with rye or wheat in the grist. The problem is every time I keg up a couple of batches we have a party and drink it all in one sitting.  :P

Too bad we don't have more than a couple of decent brewpubs in NH.

In California on business and had a very nice beer from Ninkasi Brewing from OR. Tricerahops DIPA! Great name. And who knew - Ninkasi is the Sumerian goddess of beer.

On the downside - the place I'd found last year that had Pliny the Elder on tap kicked the keg Monday and won't have another till Thursday. And I'll be elsewhere.

Just racked Joe's Duct Tape Label, Totally Tubular (cycling reference) Pale Ale, to the secondary fermenter.  Should come out right around 5%.  I've never used Goldings hops but they are described to be a traditional British bittering and aroma hop.  Not sure I love the flavour of the hops, but it's an unfinished ale so a week or two in the secondary and a few weeks in the bottle could do wonders.  We'll see!

I happen to be reading this while in England. What they call pale ale and India pale ale we would never recognize unless you knew it was really the true style! Not as hoppy as our versions of the styles.

Not sure if it's the goldings hops or the fact that they probably hop less but ABV in England on pales and India pale ales is certainly less - and way less hoppy and floral than what we drink!

I typically produce brews that are about 8-10% ABV or so, use bittering hops that are about 10-12%AA and tend to steep a lot more grains.  With this one the hops are 4.8%AA and I steeped very little grain.

Yum citra...

My best homebrew IPA is centennial for bittering then tons of citra at 20,15,10 and 5 minutes then dry hopped with one ounce citra and one ounce centennial.
