Do explain :mmm:
Instead of simcoe and Amarillo, he adds Nelson Sauvin, mosaic, centennial, amarillo and then I am going to add madarina bavaria as well to add some more orange flavour.

I've got an alt on the go. It spent the first 10 hours at 21C instead of 14C. Apparently Wyeast 1007 is rather vigorous. Gummed up my airlock and then blew it out. Then a rabbit ran into my garage, into the little cubby in my freezer (that I use as a fermentation chamber) and in behind the compressor. So freezer was offline for a while until we got him out. And he most certainly was not interested in coming out. Should be entertaining to see how this turns out. :)

Just brewed up an American wheat ale with Wai-iti. Trying hop stands lately on this and my previous brew, but with a hop spider so I'm not sure I'll get the hop flavour extraction I'm expecting; I guess I'll see once it's done.

local informal competition requires us to add something foraged to a beer and I am not familiar with what grows on the west coast so I'm at a loss.

Russian Sage? Wild Rosehips?

Are there spruce tips or edible berries or anything? Juniper? I have no idea what's in BC, I barely know what grows here.

Hopefully there are no risky wild mushroom beers!

Sounds interesting. Have you done this one before? If so, care to share the details? If not, let us know how it turns out.

we're too late in the season for spruce tips here.

I think chokecherries grow around here but I'd probably want to put that in something that was going to see quite a bit of age on it for the tannins to calm down...

I was getting very low on beer so Tuesday I banged out 10 gallons of an Amber and am fermenting each half with WLP550 & WY1272. Wednesday I did another 10 g batch of a Golden Promise SMaSH with Citra OG 1.042 and am fermenting it with US05 at different temp. Half will be at 18C and other half at 12 C. I pitched at lager cell counts for the lower temp and really want to try and get some peacy esters I've read about. Definitely doing a D rest on that half. Another few weeks and beer stock will be back from mission critical.

Mashed in at lunch on a 40L batch of kettle soured beer. One half will go on a fruit mixture and the other is going to be fortified with a white whine and dry hopped with Nelson Sauvin.
"Twenty years ago — a time, by the way, that hops such as Simcoe and Citra were already being developed, but weren’t about to find immediate popularity — there wasn’t a brewer on earth who would have gone to the annual Hop Growers of American convention and said, “I’m going to have a beer that we make 4,000 barrels of, one time a year. It flies off the shelf at damn near $20 a six-pack, and you know what it smells like? It smells like your cat ate your weed and then pissed in the Christmas tree.” - Bell’s Brewery Director of Operations John Mallet on the scent of their popular Hopslam.

What was your recipe Brian? I'm looking for something like what you are doing there.

For this one I used 60/40 pils/wheat. Sometimes I use 2row/wheat. Then bitter to 16 ibus

Brewing up a modified version of my Wheat Porter for a birthday party in October. Using midnight wheat and Golden Naked Oats in place of Carafa II and toasted flaked oats.

Just wish my WY-1968 yeast starter had…started. Going to have to get creative with yeast unless I want to shell out for two packs of fresh at $9 a pop (OG 1.076).

Just brewed a cherrywood smoked porter today.

I do 1 gal BIAB and this will be my third overall batch, and my second all-grain batch.
