With my mash tun at a friend's house being customized, I realize that I could run out of beer before I get it back. So, it's back to my extract brewing roots. So I dug out my copy of Extreme Brewing: An Enthusiast's Guide to Brewing Craft Beer at Homeby Sam Caligione. I like the book because it uses malt extract in its recipes. So I have spent a few hours thumbing through the pages. Should I make the Ginger Saison? Tripel 'Round the World? Decisions, decisions.
What's exciting is the shorter brew day! Making an extract beer knocks three or four hours off my brew day.
Actually, I think I'll make a barleywine this time, and something from Sam's book next time.
