Maibock on Sunday.....probably the last lager of the year due to unseasonably warm weather we're getting.

I wish we could at least get some seasonably less cold weather here.

It's only supposed to get to 70° here, but I'm stuck inside.  Brewing my standard APA, and hopefully starting my yeast ranch.

Slurry from a 3 liter stirred starter of 1762 is crashing in my fridge

Something with that, either a Rochefort 8 or Westy 12 clone.

Might try to squeeze in a lager of some kind too.

Know what you mean.  Our fermentation room is hovering around 52-54.  Still am going to try to get in one more lager this weekend though.

My wife and I are going to knock out 4 batches this weekend, brewing on both Friday and Saturday.  Planning on an Alt, APA, my Rainier Amber Lager and Denny's Westcoastmalle.

Happy b-day partigyle weekend!  For my 33rd b-day, 3 (maybe 4) of us will be brewing our first partigyle.  10 gallons of Imperial stout, 10 gallons of winter ale, and 10 gallons from what's left of the first 2 (not completely sure on the style, but should be interesting) for a total of 30 gallons.  Gotta love the 3's!!!

Geez, you guys are such overachievers!  I suppose you're going to shear sheep and put in another 10 acres of grapes at the same time??   ;D

Not brewing this weekend.  In fact I don't think I'm brewing again unitl the snow is below 6" deep.  Lugging the spent grain out to the composter in waist deep snow is a PITA.  Plus the last two batches I did, I wasn't able to use my wort chiller due to having no place for the waste water to go, ended up doing a water bath.  Any way, I have a Dortmunder doing a diacetyl rest and my all Centennial IPA is happily burbling away (smells good too ;D).

I'm ready for spring too.

I am planning to make a starter for a Dusseldorf Altbier this weekend.

Taking a break from the brewing this weekend and enjoying the kegged stout and dark lager, and other random homebrew and craft beer in bottles for a poker night with the gang.   Someone will bring bud and miller.

Hoping the temps stay cool in the basement to finish off the 2 other lagers chugging away.

Is that your review of the SA Triple Bock?  I've never had it, but I saw the recipe in Microbrewed Adventures and found it intriguing.

Making my first yeast starter this afternoon.  Brewing a Green Flash West Coast IPA clone tomorrow.  After that (maybe Sunday or next week or next weekend) it's a Sam Adams Noble Pils clone and a Sam Adams Boston Lager clone.  Currently fermenting is a Ferocious IPA, Harpooned IPA (Harpoon clone), Czech Pilsner (Pilsner Urquell clone), and Clorona (Corona clone).

I brewed my first Classic American Pilsner today.  My grain bill was German pils and instant polenta.  In about three weeks, I'm planning on pitching another CAP on top of the yeast cake with a grain bill of 6-row and flaked corn.  In April or May, I'll start comparing the two.   8)

I can tell you from experience, the one with 6 row and flaked corn is TREMENDOUS
I used German Pils and Grits, it was very good but not as good as with the 6 row and flaked corn

Dark Candi sugar for the Westy clone is made

Semi-virgin brew on the permanent installation of my 2 barrel system. Makin 50 gallons and splitting it 3 ways: 2 styles of American Wheat with a lager and ale yeast, and a Belgian wheat with raspberries. Wish me luck. Hope the burners work and the pump lasts.
