Brand new to the brew club. Wife gave me a kit for Christmas. Brewed a bitter then a Porter both still in the Carboys. Plan on bottleing the Bitter this weekend, racking the Porter to the secondary. Also plan on brewing a Kolsh and a Pilsner. My basemnet stays right at 55 all winter long.

I'm going to brew 10 gallons of something in between an English Brown and a Brown Porter.  The gf is complaining that EVERYTHING doesn't need to be "hoppy".  Then I'll take 5 gallons of it and add the Chai spice infusion to make sure I have something to enter in the SHV category of any competitions I plan on judging in for the next year!   ;)

I'll be hitting the LHBS tomorrow afternoon and picking up everything for a brew session on Saturday.  Having trouble deciding between an Oatmeal Stout, APA (with a little extra hops in the last 10-20 minutes) or a Hefeweizen. Leaning towards the stout, since there's still a few months left of this Maine winter.

Hmm.. to my way of thinking that means you really should make a Hoppy Wheat Stout with Oats

Brewboy's Sucky American Wheat at some point. 5 lb Wheat, 2 lb 2-Row, 2 lb Munich. Bitter and Flavor w/ Hallertau.

The brew is contingent of completeing the collar for the freezer conversion. I now have everything except tubing and "L" brackets to assemble. I'd like to get assembled and get 2-3 coats of poly on this weekend. Hopefully serving out of next weekend. I need to empty a keg to put the wheat in for Daytona.

Brewing Kris England's Black Douglas clone from on Monday -- it was in BYO a couple of years ago. This is a great recipe to rid yourself of the fear of using too much black malt.

Oatmeal Stout is done and sitting in the carboy.  First brew in my new house went off without a hitch.

I brewed a hoppy Belgian Blonde, vaguely in the vein of Gouden Carolus Hopsinjoor - we'll see how it tastes. It was around 1.060 (forgot to buy a new hydrometer before the brew session, so that is a guess), and around 40 IBU, with lots of late additions. Long story short, it has both WLP530 and Wyeast 1762 in it, and I don't really know which will take over, though I highly suspect it will be the WLP530.

11.5 lbs Weyermann Pils
.5 lb Briess 20L (HBS was out of Caravienne)

.5 oz Willamette (5.6 AA) FWH
.5 oz Mt. Hood (4.6 AA) FWH
1 oz Willamette (5.6 AA) 60 min
.75 oz Mt. Hood (4.6 AA) 60 min
1.25 oz Tettnanger (3.2 AA) 5 min
1 oz Willamette (5.6 AA) 0 min
1 oz Mt. Hood (4.6 AA) 0 min
1 oz Tettnanger (3.2 AA) 0 min

pitched a problematic 3L starter of WLP530, in addition to an unnecessary smack pack of Wyeast 1762 (24hrs later, just as krausen was beginning to form!).

mashed at 149F for 60 min
Fermenting now at 70F

Probably brewing nothing next week, followed by a Robust Porter and a Belgian Golden Strong in the near future.

We need some love in these threads for people who work weekends. ;)

I just brewed 5 gal of "Andrea Doria Porter". This is my third cut at it and I'm getting really close to what I want, but the recipe is out of control - seven grains in this one.
