Think I'll keg the DIPA with a Kiss of Rye & whip up a quick Irish Red Ale....

I finally have all the parts to finish my kegerator.  Hope to finish it this weekend.

No brewing.

Making a starter for my Helles that will be brewed next weekend.

No brewing - drinking.  Bachelor party from Friday-Sunday near Hood River, I'm bringing a keg of my spanish cedar aged pale ale and some stuff from my cellar.

Well, I guess there will be some brewing, sort of.  I'll be joining Greg Doss for the end of his brew day when I get down there.  I don't know what he's brewing though.

Cleaning out the keezer... and not the fun kind... more like the "the few inches of water at the bottom is starting to turn green" kind. Definitely investing in some of that moisture absorbing stuff...

Also brewing... meh... IPA? hefeweizen? hefe-IPA?

I am undecided still, but brewing none-the-less.

Toasted Rye Amber Ale
Harvest Pale Ale (wet hopped with homegrown cascades)
Double batch of brown ale, one with english yeast and 30ish IBU, the other with 1450 and dry hopped with Amarillo

I better figure it out soon

need to clean 7 or 8 kegs

keg an IPA and N. English Brown I made 2 weeks ago

What sort of configuration will you be going for with the kegerator?  I'm getting ready to do a chest freezer build soon.

It's a 7.5cf chest freezer equipped with a 6" collar and regulated with a Johnson controller.  
It will hold 4 kegs and a CO2 cylinder.

I am using Perlick faucets and SS shanks that will come through the collar.

Six feet of line on the serving side per keg.

In the process of building my dual stir-plate, so hopefully I'll get that finished up.  Also got to get the fridge hooked up with the controller I got.  Lots of small things to do...

Depending on where my dubbel sits, I'll need to do something with that.  My house saison too.

If all that goes well, I'll brew a majorvices inspired lime saison on Tuesday after work.

Sniffing sour airlocks...

Was gonna do the Terrapin Rye Ale clone this weekend, but the HBS was out of rye! >:(

So . . I'm doing a Great Divide Wild Raspberry Ale clone today, and a Weihenstephaner Hefeweissbier clone tomorrow.

Ha!  That's almost exactly what I'm doing!  I'm getting an 8.8cf freezer in black.  Going to equip it with a 6" collar and a Johnson controller.  I'm going to do four taps as well.  I'm probably not going to get around to building it until October though.  Unfortunately, things are going to be pretty busy for the next month or so.

Say hi to Greg for me.

I'll be brewing something with US05, but I don't know what.  I've been on vacation so I haven't had time to do a starter, but I've got 05 around, along with a lot of grain and hops.

Not brewing.  Hope to transfer the 1450 IPA to the keg this weekend.  Working Saturday, so Sunday will be outdoor work.  Canning tomatoes, pickling some okra and maybe making some more chipotles.

Turns out he's brewing an American wheat though.  Worst.  Style.  Ever.  Where's the vomit emoticon?

I'll be making the Pliny clone.  It will be nice to clear the freezer of the abundance of hops for this one.

Done.

He's slow with email though, and I suspect I won't be on the computer much for a few days.  Apparently we'll be rafting and golfing on Saturday, and there's no internet where we're staying.  But I'm sure his response will be something I can't post here anyway :)

Will be brewing 10 gal. of an Octoberfest.  A friend is coming over to help and he will be getting half the batch when it is done.  I just kegged my Imperial IPA so it should be ready to drink in a few days.

Brewed an American pale ale. Reused my yeast from an earlier batch of the same. First time for doing that. What was I waiting for? EASY PEASY.

I want to brew an AG batch- a Brown ale. But the forecast sez: 101*, 101*, 101*, 102* with indexes of 107-109F.

Not sure I'm up for that type of punishment. :-\

No brewing... All family stuff piled on with weekend work (super-busy weekend for my job). Though I convinced visiting family to go to a local brewpubs for dinner (Magnolia) and I had a most wonderful wet-hopped bitter.:)

No brewing this weekend. The garden is full of produce that wants to become food. Putting up dill pickles and salsa this weekend.

Brewed an American Pale Ale (Robbers Gulch Pale Ale) with the lucky winner of the Relay For Life raffle.  This is the second year I have donated "brewing lessons" as a prize to help raise money for the Relay For LIfe cancer walk.

The brewing went well....even had a nice boil-over so my raffle winner is no longer a "newbie".

Brewed a Kolsch yesterday.  One of the few brew days when absolutely nothing went wrong.

I think you just guaranteed your fermentation will be screwy.
