Post by: dbeechum on September 30, 2010, 04:26:05 AM
Whatcha got?

I think it's time to brew the 30 year old since I'm signing the final docs on Friday.

Not brewing - I'm officiating a friend's wedding in Portland OR on Saturday, I hope to hit the new Cascade and Hair of the Dog while I'm there.  Hard to say though, the schedule might be too tight to hit both.

I went with 15 years. However- fantastic news! This will change your life. Celebrate!

Still wanting to do a Porter. Steeping no AG this time. Have 12 gallons to keg. Been slacking. ::)

BoPils this weekend.  Also probably some fall chores here as well.  Time to overseed the lawn and get a little topsoil down on it.  Should be a busy weekend.

No doubt. If I could have gone 15, you bet your sweet bippy I would have, but give that this house is a starter home in the LA region, that wasn't gonna happen! :)

What kind of trees are you pruning?  I usually wait until the leaves have dropped and it's a lot colder . . .

Ah, that makes more sense.  Although now I'm having fun picturing you climbing the 70 feet or so to the lowest branches on the Doug firs in my yard  ;D  I'm guessing you have some other kind of firs or younger Dougs in mind.

Yeah, after I posted that I realized that it wasn't entirely accurate.  70 years ago my house was owned by an arborist and he planted a variety of evergreen trees in a circle around the front yard as a kind of showplace (the trees, definitely NOT the house!).  Some of them have limbs hanging over the house.  Fortunately, I can get to them with a ladder.  That said, I'd rather be brewing!

Congrats Drew!  Good Luck!  No brewing this weekend.  Will probably work some on Saturday and do fall yard chores(aerate and overseed) on Sunday before football.  Have a Helles and amber fermenting still, they'll probably go into kegs for aging in a week or two.  Then another IPA, I suppose.  Time to bottle the wee heavy and put the year old oak-aged RIS into the serving fridge.

No brewing for me as I'm attempting a century bicycle ride on Sunday. Yep, that's 100 miles. I have a big IPA that I brewed for the occasion, called Century's End  ;D. My wife will meet me at the end with a couple on ice, though I imagine one will be enough to knock me out at that point.

Not brewing, but doing some carbonation of a fall fresh hop ale.  Some other cellar work.  General cleaning, and maybe some equipment tweeks.  Mow and yard clean up, trim the bushy stuff in the yard. 

Drew, buying a house is a big life mile stone, and you have a feeling of accomplishment.  When you drink your 30 year special brew, now that will be a great feeling if the brew is excellent and your mortgage is paid off at the same time.  Prost!

Brewin' up an ESB and cleaning my carboy. Hopefully selling some electronics so I can buy a temperature controller for my chest freezer. I also need to bottle my oktoberale, which was supposed to happen last week until my roommate stepped on the siphon. Ooops.

Good for you! I just kegged my Fuller's ESB clone. Mmm . . Mmm! Also, when you get the mocha porter done, you might ship a bottle to the Hilton Head Island Brewery so they can get a clue about making it. >:(

Me? Friday a Terrapin Rye Pale Ale clone, and on Saturday . . Bell's Two Hearted clone.

Still working on the kegerator and the brewstand.  Probably prepare a starter for some IPA next weekend.

I'm just about finished with my kegerator.  Got the collar all stained and varnished.  Now it's just a matter of hooking everything up.  But I won't get to it this weekend since I'm heading to Chicago with the wife this afternoon for our first "getaway" in over a year!

yeah - brewed in November of last year - finished the first keg ~May/June of this year, then with it being so hot, didn't want to put a bock on tap, so it sat and got pushed to the side till now - hope its as good as it was back in May - took a Silver at the Hurricane Blowoff, heck, maybe it'll be better.

Got off work early today.  Decided to brew my Ring of Fire IPA.  1.060 OG, 75 IBU.  Used up a bunch of New Zealand Hallertauer, Sorachi Ace, and Cascades that have been in the freezer longer than I normally like.  Tasted pretty good going into the fermenter tonight.

Mazel tov on the house!

No brewing this weekend... Church of the Work tomorrow. For the first time ever my partner asked me if I'd like to spend the day brewing. Is it close to Christmas or something?

Did get to talk this week with one of the (of-age) students at our university who is planning his first brew very soon. Fun to be the little old library director who can talk about hop schedules and fermentation temperatures. :)

I bottled an AG batch of Denny's Rye IPA yesterday. Today I and brewed Jamil's Hop Bursting recipe (American Amber), also AG. I previously have brewed the Northern Brewer extract kit based on this recipe called Evil Twin. I'm real curious to see how this compares.

It looks great.

Everytime I get started on mine, I get interrupted.  :(

I have the collar finished and all the fittings installed (shanks, faucets, etc..)
I just need to run the tubing.
It figures ...I'm out of town on a seminar until Sunday.
