Batch 21 was quite a success. Just the sort of thing I wanted to have around for Summer. As usual, the problem is that I don't have enough of it.
I slipped another batch in before the hefeweizens. Batch 22 is a stout that I have just sitting in secondary. I'm happy to leave it sitting there for months. Tasted great when I racked, though.
23a and 23b are the hefeweizens, where I made two 3-gallon batches using the same ingredients. The only difference was that 23a had a "maltase rest" in the mash, to try to increase esters.
I still haven't gotten around to the T-58 batch yet. That's gonna be a funny beer (weird yeast (T-58), weird grains (60% rye), weird hops (argentinian cascade), and it was going to be my last of the "season" but now that September is approaching, the seasons are blurring. Geez, pretty soon it'll be time for ciders again.
In other homebrew-related news: My Chinook plant is doing pretty much as I expected. But the Cascade one has gone crazy with growth, and I have flowers in the first year! Only about 4 months old and I have maybe about a dozen flowers. Incredible. That wasn't supposed to happen.
