Trick and Treat

T'and'T Baby, So I drank all the booze on Halloween 2018. from what I remember it was a dark roasting, fire pop'n, Cinnamon roll'n holiday ale, 10 Gallons of it. It's called T'and'T because of the cinnamon notes that made it pop! Plus it's like Trick and Treat, so its a double play both T'n'T for dynamite and Trick and Treat because it was during Halloween.

Everyone seemed to like it at the Halloween party. I gave like 8 pints of it away in bottles. It didn't take long for Sarah and I to kill the keg, like maybe 5 days.

There's not much here to say about it other than it was of course spectacular. Oh yeah a funny note is that for those bottles I put two carbonation drops into each. So I was only suppose to drop one, this made it super carbonated which you can see in the video posted below.

Well one more note about this fire roasted holiday ale is that although it wasn't my best and it wasn't the cleanest tasting, it was one that people are going to remember. Only a select few ever got to experience this unique taste, it will never be duplicated again because of the specific elements that go one in my garage when I brewed this up. I'm talking air temp, pressure, hard vs. soft boiling, type of water, dog supervision, time distortion. All these can effect taste and I'm for sure no one ever again will have the pleasure of dipping their tongue into such astonishing amazement.

I did however give one beer to my co-worker Luke, he said he enjoyed it and found it delightful. So that's a win. Anytime I can give some BueBeer away and they said they enjoyed it, I feel that I'm doing something right in the world.


The Brew

  • Style

    American Amber Ale

    Absolutely Delcious
  • Starting Water

    12.5 gallons

    All Distilled Water. Just keeping record of the amount of water I've started with befroe each brew.
  • Pre Boil Gravity


    Taking the gravity before the boil, to make sure the boil went well.
  • Original Gravity


    The Original Gravity is the specific gravity measured before fermentation. Gravity is the ratio of the density of a sample to the density of water. Basically sugar vs water. OG - FG = ABV
  • Final Gravity


    The Final Gravity is the specific gravity measured at the completion of fermentation. Basically sugar vs water. OG - FG = ABV
  • ABV


    Alcohol By Volume. How much alcohol is in the beer, the higher the drunker you get! This one the math and gravities were a little off.
  • Pale Malt (2 Row) US (2.0 SRM)


    Refreshing and hoppy, yet with sufficient supporting malt. An American adaptation of English pale ale, reflecting indigenous ingredients (hops, malt, yeast, and water). Often lighter in color, cleaner in fermentation by-products, and having less caramel flavors than English counterparts. There is some overlap in color between American pale ale and American amber ale. The American pale ale will generally be cleaner, have a less caramelly malt profile, less body, and often more finishing hops.
  • Black (Patent) Malt (500.0 SRM)


    Dark color and dry roasted flavor characteristic of Stouts and Porters Use for: Coloring in small amounts, or flavoring of Stouts and Porters in larger amounts.
  • Special B Malt (180.0 SRM)


    Extreme caramel aroma and flavored malt. Used in dark Belgian Abbey and Trappist ales. Unique flavor and aroma.
  • Honey Malt (25.0 SRM)


    Intensely sweet - adds a sweet malty flavor sometimes associated with honey. Also called Brumalt.
  • Caravienne Malt (22.0 SRM)


    Light Belgian crystal malt. Used in light Trappist and Abbey style Belgian ales.
  • Caramel/Crystal Malt - 120L (120.0 SRM)


    Adds body, color and improves head retention. Also called "Crystal" malt.
  • Willamette [4.70 %]

    1oz at 10min. & 1oz at 1min

    Used for: Finishing American and British Ales Aroma: Mild, grassy, floral, slightly spicy Substitutes: Fuggles, East Kent Goldings Examples: Sierra Nevada Porter, Ballard Bitter
  • Northern Brewer [6.0 %]

    2oz at 60min.

    Also called Hallertauer Northern Brewers Used for: Bittering and finishing both ales and lagers of all kinds Aroma: Fine, dry, clean bittering hop. Unique flavor. Substitutes: Hallertauer Mittelfrueh, Hallertauer Examples: Anchor Steam, Old Peculiar
  • Whirlfloc

    1 Tablet at 15min.

    Used to clear up the beer.
  • Yeast

    English Ale (White Labs #WLP002) [35.49 ml]

    These microscopic fungi are the mojo in the juice when it comes to Alcohol. They consume sugar, then piss carbonation and shit alchole, then reproduce and do it again.
  • Unflavored Gelatin

    .5 packet

    Clear, unflavored gelatin can be added to the brew during fermenting as a clearing agent much like whirlfloc. I added this between my Primary and Secondary.
  • IBU


    International Bittering Units. The measurement of bitterness of the beer ranging from 0 to 100, where 100 is super hoppy.
  • SRM Color Scale


    Number guide to beer color, 0 - 40 Yellow into Black
    color guide
  • Ginger Root

    2TBS at 2min

    Adds distinctive ginger flavor for Ginger Ales, Holiday Beers. Fresh grated ginger root from the grocer is best. As little as 1/2 ounce per 5 gallons is noticable, but up to 4 oz can be used for ginger ales.
  • Cinnamon Stick

    1 at 2min and 1 in Secondary

    Used to add cinnamon flavor to holiday beers. Goes well with ginger, honey and orange flavors. Add one stick 5 minutes from the end of the boil.

MüsingenWednesday August 1, 2017

The best part about brewing this beer was my good buddy Andy Muns came over and actually he's the reason the beer is called Musingen. We figured it's a German beer and he's German and this was his first time brewering so we just named the beer after him.
