Batch 251, Apple Cider

 Just a plain cider this time. I'll probably add some vanilla and cinnamon when kegging.


5 gallon batch


1 gallon wort from batch 250

11 12oz cans Winco frozen apple juice

Enough water to top it up to 5 gallons


So as usual, I just ran off an extra gallon at the end of the second sparge into a fermenter, then added the 11 cans of apple juice, then topped up to 5 gallons. 


Oxygenated, then pitched a new pack of 1318, London Ale III.

Batch 250, Guava IPA

 Hopefully, just like last time.


10 gallon batch


20 lb 2-row

2.5 lb white wheat

1 kg guava paste, added at end of primary fermentation


Heated 8 gallons to 165F, mashed in, hit 154F in the tun. Adjusted pH to 5.27. 60 minute mash. Recirculated 15 minutes each batch. Collected 12.5 gallons in the boil kettle, plus another gallon into a fermenter for a cider.


1.75 oz Citra, FWH

2 oz Magnum, 60 min

2 tsp Irish Moss, 15 min

3 oz Citra, 5 min


90 minute boil. 


2 quarts Wyeast 1272. No starter, just warmed up the jars to 65F.


Easy brew day, did some ukulele blues with Lisa for Tyler.
