Title: What's Brewing This Weekend - 4/9 Edition
Post by: dbeechum on April 07, 2010, 06:20:39 PM
I can't brew this week! My kettles are being used for water baths!

But.. I do have to add the pinot noir oak to my ~2 year dark wild ale. Thinking maybe of getting some sour cherry juice for a portion of it. Anyone got a good source?

Also, gotta do the checkin for the Mayfaire competition. Haven't checked recently, but last I knew we were heading north of 250.

And then Falcons' Meeting - Spring Beers. - guess I should probably go buy a few.

Looking to do an English IPA.  I have a bunch of EKGs to use and keeping with my one German beer and one IPA on tap throughout the summer and having a hefeweizen kegged and a pils ready for lagering, it looks like an IPA is next.

Drew do you have a job?   ;)

I am hopefully brewing at least 10 gallons of saison some time this week.  5 possibly with with some funky fermenting maple sap.  It is starting to smell like bread...  Be brave, or be very afraid!

Yup, but I only sleep 4-5 hours a night.

Yippeee! I finally get to post 2010's first fruits . .

Starting tomorrow through Sunday . . 11 gallons each of an American IPA, Dunkelweizen and a Scottish 80 to get a healthy yeast crop for a subsequent Traquair House clone.

I plan to do 10 gallons of APA Saturday and maybe something a little lighter like a cream or blonde on Sunday.

Bottling my second Two-Hearted-Ale clone, one of my first two brews since relocating from Florida back to California.

Still awaiting the arrival of my first child, so I have no brewing plans. Kegged my Cascade/Willamette Pale Ale last night, and will try and kill the 2° Below Clone (oh...it is so tasty right now) this weekend so I can get my Baby Brau Kolsch on tap for when friends and family come to visit.

Doing a German Pils to get ready for summer.  Still debating whether to do the decoction again or just a step infusion this time  :D

Brewing a Kolsch.  I'll have to take a gravity reading on the mead too, its been chugging along for about a month now, but at last check it was only half way there (~ 1.050 from ~ 1.112).  That should keep me busy enough not to mess with the Dunkel - its only been lagering for a little over a week.

My pear trees are blooming, I think a Lambic wort is going under one of them this weekend.

Got a saison on tap, a pale ale in the fermenter, and will be brewing my own "Amber by Volume" this weekend.  I kick up the base grain and throw in some 6-row to an Alaskan Amber clone recipe.  Plus, I like the fairly newly released Sorachi hops.

Usually ends up about 8-9%

Dropped in the Pinot Noir oak last night and I really think this beer is going to be a humdinger.

I'm about to start brewing a new American Amber recipe.  This one is going to have some nice caramel/malt undertones with a lighter, crisper palate for summer.  It's like an Amber Cerveza with an American hop profile.

The weather was beautiful yesterday, so I decided to do the decoction on the pils.  Everything turned out great... can't wait for summer!
