Looks great, have a fresh wit that I'm trying to decide between doing a short secondary on either peaches/apricots or Blackberries

Does it have much corriander flavour? If so I would vote peach/apricot. Since the dark fruit of the blackberry much clash with the phenol character of the seed. Plus peach or apricot wit sounds delicious.

Bad Tattoo has been hosting the local homebrewers for a number of brew offs... After the next one they'll declare a Brewer of the year that'll get to do a collaborative brew on the big system.

The next style is Scottish ale, so I brewed a 'lighter' one for a nice yeast cake for a Wee Heavy. The 80ish schilling really attenuated out, to 1.010 and 5.8% abv, so I dry hopped it and made it more of an ESB.

The wee heavy was right on target, finishing at 1.018 and 8.8%. I used a bit of pleated malt and added an oak tea to the secondary (short on time), hopefully it turns out!

So that Scotch Ale only placed third in the home brew competition, but after my other third and first finishes, they declared me the brewer of the year!

It got quite a bit of press when it was first announced:
http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/british-c ... -1.3518357
http://www.canadianbeernews.com/2016/04 ... ewed-beer/


On Saturday I brewed 2000L with the head brewer at Bad Tattoo. It's sort of a Belgian-inspired cherry wit. We'll add 100L of cherry juice when the primary fermentation slows down. Grain bill was 5% acidulated malt, with the rest split between pilsner and toasted wheat. We're using the faux brett yeast (WLP644), and it should finish around 4.4% abv.

I'm planning to harvest some of that yeast and do a tart wheat for home as well.
