Mr. Tastyfish, that isn't boring, at least to me. I brew that all the time.

Boring doesn't have to mean un-enjoyable. It's definitely getting to be the time of year to have some easy-drinking styles on hand.

2.5 weeks ago I tried my hand at brewing a saison. I used Belgian pilsner and German wheat malt and added Rakau and Motueka hops both as late additions and at flame out. I also got a great efficiency on this beer, my highest yet. Yesterday, I took the gravity and it ended at 1.002 - never had a beer end this low before. I calculated the ABV to be 7.88% which is quite booze. The beer was extremely clear and I had a bit. It tastes fantastic and will definitely be a dangerous summer by as it masked its alcohol incredibly well. One thing is that the beer was ever so slightly fizzy. That happens to me sometimes, most often when making mead. I was a bit worried when I bottled using priming sugar aiming for 2.8-3.0 levels of CO2, but I'm hoping the bottles will not blow up.

At the same time as bottling yesterday, I brewed an authentic bavarian hefeweissen. I had made one last summer which turned out fantastic. Once again, I surpassed my expected efficiency and got a higher OG than I had anticipated, but not too much of a problem. The yeast I used will most likely get it down to 1.015 or so, which will make it just around 6% ABV. I will also try dry hopping this 3.5 gallon batch with 1oz of mandarina bavaria hops, which I have never used before.

Lots of beer brewing going on these days. :cheers:

Did my first all grain with a buddy last weekend. Did just 2 row with wheat, doing a Belgian wheat beer. Mixed in some bitter orange peel and coriander for flavour.

Kind of pumped to try it, need to empty a keg first though.
