Post by: dbeechum on February 22, 2012, 05:00:32 PM
Spring is showing faint signs of springing.. baseball players are beginning the annual rampup to training. What are you, my brewing buddies, doing?

Gonna bottle up some wit beer from the keg and maybe keg an IPA, although that will probably wait till next weekend, or at least till the scottish 60/- kicks and I have a free keg.

Gonna enter contests for the first time this year. starting with the world cup of beer.

Go big or go home...

I may brew something this weekend, an IPA or something with a blend of Citra, Chinook, and Columbus.

Taking Friday (my birthday) off to brew a CAP that I'm calling Czech Swing Pils, in anticipation of the 2012 baseball season. Going to brew a Munich dunkel on Sunday. Not a bad brewing weekend!

Bottling my Bitter Blonde and brewing a vanilla dunkelweizen. I'm flavoring it by using vanilla sugar as the priming sugar. Going to bottle about a dozen or so with plain sugar to get a side-by-side taste comparison. Using 3638 for my yeast, so it ill be interesting to see whether the vanilla cuts through the yeasty goodness.

Nothing brewing for me this weekend.  I have to keg two lagers to clear out the chest freezer and make a starter for next weekend.

Very excited for brewing this weekend. Finally got one of my best friends into brewing, we are doing his first batch!!! He has been a long time light (actually ultra light  :-\) drinker. He brewed a few with me and amazingly fell in love with IPA and hops.  ;D

For him we are going to brew an extract Stone IPA Clone.

For me, I am brewing an all grain Schwarzbier.

After we are heading to Firestone Walker Pub for a little brew celebration!

It's funny how that works. I never liked beer until I had a roommate in college show up on move-in day with a case of Harpoon IPA. I was instantly hooked. I think if it was something light like a BoPils or a German lager, I would have said "yeah, I still hate beer" and never developed a taste for it. But the flavor of a good IPA just blew me away. I was hooked and the rest is history ;D

No brewing this weekend, got ten gallons rolling on Monday. Keg cleaning and maintenance. Think I heard a leaky popet the other day. And I really need to focus on kicking a keg of pale.

Kegging a pale belgian ale.  Finished around 1.011 and has a great smell.  This is my first Belgian.

I brewed 10 gallons of psuedo-roggenbier yesterday.  10 pounds pilsner, 10 pounds 2-row pale, 5 pounds rye.  It's got Perle for bittering and Mt. Hood at 20 minutes and flameout, and I'm using Nottingham at 58F to ferment clean.
Plus I finally got around to racking my Belgian brett blonde onto cherries in one bucket and crabapples in the other with a healthy slug of yeast slurry into each bucket.

Still just can't get used to "Yuengling" and "Florida" in the same sentence :)

Waiting for some new brew equipment to arrive (Blichmann 20 gal boil kettle, therminator, Blichmann floor burner with leg extensions).  Also, getting ready to taste a 90 minute American Pale Ale.
