Hops, Yeast, and Smoke
Thursday 07 August 2008 Filed in: Hops | Test Batches | Old Walt Smoked Wit Beer
Was able to pick some of the Chinook hops after work yesterday, to add to the Centennial hops picked in July. There should be more of both varieties as the season progresses, along with some not-as-yet-pickable Nugget hops. While I planted some Hallertauer, Fuggles, and Willamette this Spring, I'm not expecting much yield from those this year.
The yeast is happily working away at Saturday's test batch. Unfortunately, I don't think I'll be able to brew this weekend (will be attending this Saturday's North Fork Craft Beer Festival -- as a spectator -- and Sunday is somewhat booked up.)
Sunday should see me smoking some more grain in preparation for the next brewing of the Old Walt Smoked Wit Beer.
