5 Gallons of Beer to Bottle

After the marathon brewing weekend, I’ve been taking it easy on the brewing front.  I usually brew once or twice a month and after that big double brewing weekend, I’m a bit brewed out.  Of course, I’m sure that’s only temporary.

This weekend is looking to be non-brewing as well, although I had originally intended to get something going.  A last minute sailing invitation has won out.  Oh well!

That said, we still have the Belgian Dubbel to bottle this weekend.  I’m really looking forward to getting it conditioned and tasting it.  When we transferred to secondary the color and aroma were just heavenly!

We’re also looking forward to trying out the Belgian Witbier which is ready as of today.  I guess I should get some of it in the fridge so we can see what came of it.  It was modeled on a recipe for “Almost Heaven Witbier” which was posted by another beer blogger.  He noted that the citrus notes were very muted, so I seriously bumped up the amount of orange and grapefruit peel added to the boil.  I can’t wait to taste and see if I was successful.  Either way, I’ll have to let him know how it turned out.
