I've recently found myself with some extra time on my hands & naturally the thing to do is brew some more beer. I need a stock as I'm often finishing drinking a batch as it's coming into its prime. I'm also off to Manchester soon & will be dropping some beers off with friends, creating space under the stairs for more beer.
With some time on my hands I decided to make two beers in one day using the sparge water from my primary brew - Strange Attractor - and some grains left over from previous brews plus my favourite recent discovery: date molasses.
Mash: 1 hour at 67° throughout
Every winter for the last few years I've brewed a lager as it is relatively easy to brew in a garage or other cold area & raise the temperature to lager fermentation temperature - around 12-15°.
