What’s Brewing? April 2021 Edition

April brewing updates! At the last possible minute!

Beer Batch Updates

  • My “Dance Party IPA” has been kegged, consumed, and kicked! It was a kveik-based tropical-type IPA.
  • I brewed an experimental light ale on 16 April, called “Easy Days Ale.” It’s intended to be a relatively light, flavorful, drinkable brew.
  • On 24 April, I brewed a California common lager, and it’s fermenting along as expected.
  • I kegged the Belgian quad for my club’s barrel project. The beer tastes super good! I had enough left over to set up two bottles, which are now conditioning and will be popped open in a few weeks.

What’s On Tap?

  • This year’s edition of the Alta California Lager is on tap, drinking really nicely.
  • I now have a Pliny the Elder clone on tap, brewed as a 2.5 gallon batch.
  • Twisted Schwarzbier has been a quaffable, enjoyable dark lager.

What’s Coming Up?

  • I have a whole string of lagers planned…on May 1, I’ll be doing a Schell’s Pilsner Clone, and on the following week I hope to do another brew of Mow the Damn Lawn.
    • I plan to rebrew Dunkel-Osteus (Munich Dunkel).
