I finally am getting around to my first brew session of 2011, and the first session at my new house. I decided to make a Brown Ale in an effort to continue to coax the winter out of my bones. My primary goal in 2011 is to learn as much as I can about my favorite brewing ingredients while making some good beer to drink. With this batch I plan to split it and ferment on two yeasts. I am making a 6.5 gallon batch and I’ll be splitting the batch into two 3 gallon ferments. I’m going to pitch California Ale WLP001 and English Ale WLP002. I want to really experience the classic fruity ester difference against the neutral ale yeast character of the California Ale yeast. Stay tuned for the recipe and some pictures of the brew day.
