    I’ve had that happen with starters that have boiled over on the stove. Wife was not too happy with the smell.

      As it was going to take 3 hours to make No. 3 invert sugar, and I didn't feel like stirring a pot for 3 hours, I elected to use 2 lbs of D45 candi syrup instead, plus a dash of black Treacle. Way overshot my target OG - I was aiming for 1.045.

      10 gallons, OG 1.062

      16 lbs. Warminster floor malted Maris Otter
      3 lbs. Flaked maize
      2 lbs. D45 Belgian candi syrup
      Half a tin of Lyle’s black treacle for coloring

      Mash at 153°For 90 min

      1 oz. Cluster 90 min
      2.5 oz. Fuggles 30 min
      2 oz. EKGs knockout

      As it is winter in Montana and my garden hose is frozen, I let the brew kettle sit out last night, the temperature was in the 20s.. Worked out pretty good - this morning the wort was 62°F.

      Split between WY1318 London Ale III and WY1187 Ringwood. Smacked the packs yesterday morning. This morning the London was completely swollen (2 month old pack) while the Ringwood was completely flat (5 month old pack). If the Ringwood doesn’t take off I will go to the LHBS and buy some dry yeast – hopefully Munton Gold.

        Just racked an Belgian IPA, Saison and Belgian Tripel to kegs, Going to rack the Chimay Blue Clone tomorrow. Finally finished fixing a leaky ganged regulator that's been alluding me for almost 2 years. Took up most of my afternoon but, got er done! No more leaks or spent C02 tanks....yay! Good Luck DC...I guess we're at that age ....I blew out a knee last year jogging like I thought I was still in my 30's....now I walk but, my right hip is giving me pain and limited mobility....I guess it's time to check in with Dr. Sawbones
        Ask not what your country can brew for you but, what you can brew for your country!

          Hip operation went smoothly and after 2 weeks I'm walking pretty wel with a single crutch. Probably still 2-4 weeks out from brewing again.

            Good to hear DC...Guess you can tip back some pints at this juncture. Hopefully the supply side is good.

                Trying to fit in a Dunkel or bock this weekend. Last weekend I got some free time so I threw together a beer that I’m trying to emulate cherry cheese cake. We’ll see how it turns out.

                  Have my traditional Christmas brew on. Lot's of specialty grains (Chocolate , black, and pale malt caramel ) at finish dry hopped with three slices of peeled ginger and 30 gms of usually Hallertau tradition or Saaz. This, I'll use some Perle this time. Polaris in the hopping which is already a ginger bread taste. This one I usually took 20 litre's aside and boiled the finished product before dry.hopping and gingering, cooled it down charged it up, and had a nice alcohol free beer for the kiddies and pregnant ladies. It only lasts about 10-14 days before developing old barrel tastes after that abuse but is well appreciated before then.

                  Good luck on the hip Den. Pay attention to the rehab. The surgery is only as good as the surgeon and the materials used, but the final product is highly dependent on the patient taking his rehab exercises seriously.... it'll be lovely to use a joint that you couldn't previously because of pain!

                      Good to hear it. Skiing might be out, but brewing is definitely on.

                        Yeah, and I still can't tap dance, dammit! I figure 2 more weeks and I'll be able t brew again. Reworked my system to be no lift.

                            Brewed up a Double NEIPA yesterday and a Bock today. Working on an ESB recipe for next weekend, hopefully.

                              Currently have an IPA almost ready to be bottled and an abbey style beer in fermentation as well. Going to try to lager something next. I think I'm going to buy a digital temperature controller for my keg fridge for the lagering. Also just finished getting setup for having a couple of kegs of homebrew on tap.

                                Nice! Nothing better than having draft beer on hand. Last weekend I brewed up a blonde with some experimental hops a farmer gave me to try out. Hoping to get a light American lager in this weekend.
