Title: What's Brewing This Weekend - 10/29 Edition
Post by: dbeechum on October 27, 2010, 05:24:57 PM
This weekend's grand plan - trying to figure out where everything gets stuffed in the new brewery... and how best to abuse the fact that I have a beefy sink and independent hot water heater.

I installed a sink and water heater for brewing a few weeks back.  They made a huge difference in my work flow, but maybe the biggest difference was having more counter space!

I'll be brewing Herman Holtrop's Rochefort recipe this weekend.

Denny - did you install an on demand water heater (tankless) or with a tank?  I am thinking about that for my brewery - would make things a bit quicker on brewday.

12gal of Majorvice's Traditional Bock on Sunday.

Burton ale to pitch on my ballantine ipa yeast slug (east coast yeast old newark ale)

might roast my pie pumpkins this weekend and get to brewing the pumpkin saison sometime next week.

I can only dream of the day when I'll have room for a dedicated sink with a tankless.  This weekend, i'll be transfering a session stout to secondary and perhaps kegging an IPA.

Kegging and racking a couple batches of Christmas Tree Ale.

My weekend consists  of kegging my 60-minute IPA, building a workbench, brewing some Patersbier, and trick-or-treating.  And watching college football in between.

No brewing for me this weekend.  I'm going to bottle my AIPA on Friday.  Have two birthday parties on Saturday, and All Hallows Eve on Sunday.  Maybe brew Sunday morning... but I doubt it.

Allegedly I get a weekend off starting noonish tomorrow so I'll brew 10 gallons of meal stout tomorrow, crabapple cider on Saturday and either an alt or rye pale ale on Sunday

all brewing plans scratched from the docket per the judge...  can't complain though... I've got 33 gallons of beer sitting in fermentors around the house not to mention all the stuff in bottles...  the ipa can sit another week, not too concerned.

It's a 4 gal. under counter model.  It has a tank, but it's only 4 gal.

Nothing this weekend.  Didn't get around to drilling the new kettle last weekend so that will hopefully get done this weekend.

No brewing but I have 5 gallons of West coast IPA (or RED???) in my brand new conical. Need to dump the yeast tomorrow. Will be the first time going from primary to secondary without racking! I have an APA in the keg conditioning that I'll be "sampling" all weekend!!!

Wow!  60 gallons?  Did you press them yourself or did you pony up a ton of money for the apple juice?

Continuing my epic bottling of beer from the last 3-4 weeks of brewing.  With any luck I'll have completely empty buckets and carboys at the end of this.

Brewed an experimental Holiday beer.

Getting ready for the hollidays... Brewed a Porter and a Cream Ale.  The Porter may get some bourbon soaked Oak Cubes added in secondary, and the Cream Ale is my gateway brew to entice the Bud drinkers...

Did my Imperial oatmeal stout on Friday-put almost 5 pounds of oatmeal instead of the 2 pounds the recipe called for.  It will be interesting.  Yesterday crushed 8 pounds of crabapples and 8 pounds of grannysmiths to get almost 2 gallons of juice, topped it off with WallyWorld apple juice for 5 gallons and pitched Nottingham.  And I just doughed in for a rye IPA-20 pounds 2-row pale, 5 pounds rye and 1.5 pounds crystal 60.  For hops it'll be Columbus for bittering and Cascade for 20, 5 and flameout additions.
