    Tall order if you want me to include what I've already made, including beer, but I'll try.

    Fermenting:
    - Kolsch

    Lagering:
    - Oktoberfest

    In Cellar (carboys and kegs):
    - Dunkel - First lager!
    - '09 Cellar Craft International Quartet Syrah (Shiraz) kit
    - '09 Spiced Holiday Apple Wine
    - WE Chocolate Raspberry Port kits (have 2 to make a 6 gallon batch. These were a huge hit as gifts last XMas, so I don't have much left from first batch)
    - '09 Imperial Vanilla Bourbon Porter (saved some for wife after pregnancy)
    - '09 Weizenbock (saved some for wife after pregnancy)
    - Hard Apple Cider
    - Irish Red Ale - Father-In-Law request
    - '10 Imperial Vanilla Bourbon Porter for holidays and gifts
    - '10 Hellion (Imperial Bourbon Oaked Stout to forget about in cellar for kid)
    - '10 Holiday Belgian for holidays and gifts
    - Milk Stout - also post-childbirth wife request
    - Cellar Craft Showcase Austrian Gruner-Veltliner
    - '10 Cru Select Platinum Semillon Sauvignon Blanc - Australia

    In Kegerator:
    - Angry Asphalt Porter
    - Holiday Belgian Ale
    - Belgian Golden Strong Ale
    - English Brown Ale
    - Dunkelweizen
    - Dunkel - First lager!
    - Old Ale
    - Blond Ale
    - Hard Apple Cider
    - Cherry/Apple Cider

    Plan to make this year:
    - Big mead to forget in cellar for 21 years for kid
    - '10 Spiced Holiday Ale for holidays and gifts
    - Honey Blonde Ale
    - '10 Cru Select RQ Alpine Foothills Italian Barbaresco
    - If I have time (probably not), I want to try making sake now that I have a temp controlled fermentation environment.
    - There will be plenty of other not-yet-planned beers, and a few wines/meads. I'd like to try a fruit wine, but I may not have time to get to that this year... we'll see. I'm hedging my bets on time assuming that I'll have a LOT less once my wife evicts the kid from her belly (in July, supposedly).

    Made in the past (only listing each style once... I don't think you care how many batches of the same beer I've made. LOL):
    - Kolsch
    - Sweet Traditional Mead
    - Medium/Dry Traditional Mead
    - Cellar Craft International YAKIMA SYNERGY II white wine kit
    - Selection Estate Washington Columbia Valley Riesling kit
    - WE Chocolate raspberry port kit - First kit... kinda messed up, but saved with brandy fortification
    - Milk stout
    - Molasses Porter
    - Oatmeal Stout
    - Amber Ale
    - Belgian Pale Ale
    - Irish Red Ale
    - Toasted Oatmeal Vanilla Bourbon Stout
    - Chocolate Hazelnut Porter
    - Chocolate Porter (hazelnut was too much, so tried again without it)
    - English Bitter
    - Cream Ale
    - WE Vintners Reserve Pinot Blanc Kit (White cooking wine for wife)
    - WE Vintners Reserve World Vineyard California Trinity Red (Red cooking wine for wife)
    - '09 Masters Edition AllJuice Outback Shiraz 23L kit
    - '09 Vanilla Cinnamon Mead
    - Many versions of the same beers, slightly altered, while getting the recipes dialed in to where we really enjoy them.
    - That's all I can think of for now...

    So far, in order:

    1 gallon batch of white concord from concentrate - got an infection and I poured it out
    2 gallons of carrot - not very good, but I learned a lot from it. Bottled it last week.
    5 gallons beaujolais from concentrate - still in carboys, tasted at last racking and it's pretty good.
    3+ gallons blueberry - still in carboy - tasted after last racking and it is decent, but a little thin. I may mix with something.
    1 gallon passion fruit/frozen dole's grape concentrate - in carboy, plan on making this sweet for the wife and others
    3 gallons strawberry riesling - used riesling concentrate + 10lbs frozen strawberries. In carboy now.
    3 gallons candy cane/niagra - In Carboy now

    it actually tastes more buttery than strong pecan flavor. like peanut brittle, but with pecans is the best way i could describe it. it's a family recipe that i can't divulge due to be releasing it in the future commercially. sorry i can't share with ya cid.

    seems many are interested in it. hopefully it's a big seller!

    Yeah... it's a beer made in the Koln area of Germany. The name is regulated (like Champagne needs to be from the Champagne region of France), so you don't see much of it outside of Germany. My wife and I enjoyed it on our honeymoon, which was partially spent driving through Germany, so I figured out how to make it when I got home. Now it's a favorite. I think my wife is particularly fond of that beer because it probably reminds her of our honeymoon.

    The yeast is a hybrid yeast. It's an ale yeast, but is fermented in the mid-to-high 50's, then the beer needs 6 weeks of cold aging (lagering) before it's really ready to drink.

    We just bought another wine kit last night: Cellar Craft Showcase Austrian Gruner-Veltliner. I'll be making this next year as well.

    More importantly, the Cellar Craft International Quartet Syrah (Shiraz) kit I have is now out of the box and in the primary fermenter. :r

    Is the idea to keep updating my earlier post on this thread as I add things, or was it a point-in-time kind of thing?
