Are you guys the ones with the coffin? I kept waiting for Screamin' Jay Hawkins to jump out. Great beer, however.

Nope, that was "Homebrew for Homebrew" - a gang of homebrew enthusiasts out of Reno. GREAT guys. I think my wife and I and a couple of our camp mates were there at least twice a day every day last year.

Props to Skinny Kitty Teahouse too! They had such a great atmosphere and wonderful art with the mummy kitties and stuffed mouse angels, and such great, uplifting refreshing tea.

How about we do a Playa brew?

I will be on Playa from the 11th onward. With the right recipe and if brewed that evening we could force carbonate and even have a few days conditioning on the beer.

Lets hear a few recipes for an appropriate Playa ale.

Alt, kolsch, dry English ale, looking for a fast yeast, fast ferment.

If I remember right GAWD did a Wit last year on the playa, ferment was 6 days, we kegged it and served it at the coffin. It was an extract beer just to keep it simple and reduce the mess.

I think I would try an amber if I was going to be out there that long.
Do you need a recipe?
I have some at home.

I was thinking a Wit or Saison. I need to use a yeast that works on the high side of the temperature scale and the Belgium strains are a good fit.

I am more asking for folks to chime in on a style they would like to have made on playa. Makes it more fun when folks can get involved.

So, pick a style of beer you would like knowing that it will likely be brewed with a Belgium yeast strain.

If not, I'll just pick something convenient, like a Wit and Oatmeal Stout.

Thanx to all the yeast wranglers who avoided excess taxes and brought wine, cider, beer, and mead, especially the keg of mead w/ Japanese citrus. The second Zymurgist Flocculation was awash in homebrew and will happen again next year, so you have time to brew a strong ale.

Tokken, how was the playa brew? I missed it, as well as much else.

Well, I visited SK in 2009, it was as wet as a AA meeting. Just curious.
Hate missing a good brew tasting.

Skinny Kitty Tea House isn't a dry camp, but it is a tea house, meaning we serve tea. not alcohol.
