Over the last few weeks I brewed the three "treads" for my Cable Car clone. The Avant Garde clone is finished fermenting, the Saison yeast is taking its time to finish the Red Barn Clone, and the Amigo Lager clone has just started fermenting.
I have to do this a bit faster than I wanted to so all the beers are ready for secondary by the time I leave for the holidays. Ideally I would have time to lager all of the beers for a few weeks after fermentation to clean them up before I add the funky microbes.
3 gallons of Red Barn Clone (Brewed 12/02/07)
10 oz Flaked wheat
4 oz Quick oats
5 oz Table sugar
90 min boil
130 minute boil
4/25/08 Airlock filled up with a gross mold. My father cleaned it, but left it dry for a couple days.
8/11/08 Was getting pretty oaky, so I racked it off the oak and added 3/4 cup of light DME boiled in a bit of water.
4/15/09 First tasting, doing pretty well.
