Title: What's Brewing This Weekend - 11/5 Edition
Post by: dbeechum on November 04, 2010, 08:02:12 PM
Welcome to the one year old board!

And now... whatcha brewing? Me - I'm digging out the brewery and hanging fans, etc.

Brewing up a batch of Patersbier.  Then its time to prep for my friends holiday party next month.  Kegging a BVIP for the party and dry hopping a Lagunitas IPA clone as an alternative to the BVIP for the same party.  Of course, both will be ready well in advance and must be sampled weekly to ensure the quality of the brews!  Hmmm, maybe I should brew up a batch for a third keg...

This is it.  Going for the gluten free beer.  My sorghum & corn syrup w/Cascade.  I'm hoping that the audience that will be tasting it will not be too critical I know the celiac in the group will be fine w/it.

BIG Learn to Homebrew Day event at Oakshire Brewing (www.oakbrew.com) here in Eugene.  Believe it or not, I'll be brewing a Rye IPA.

No brewing this weekend as I'll be out of town.  Hope to make a starter for my Dubbel when I get back.

Nothing this weekend for me.  Got the family coming down for my son's birthday party.  Going to start stepping up a starter for next weekend's bock.

I'm going to be brewing NB's Irish Heavy on Saturday.  It sounded intriguing, and it was 10% off when I was ordering some beverage tubing so I went for it. 

Also going to be kegging an IPA tomorrow night.

I don't care for brewing on the weekends.  I much prefer to brew after work on weekdays.  That being said, I'll have my kegs drilled and ready to go with ball valves, the wife will be out of town for 2 weeks, and there's plenty of propane...

Ballantine Burton Ale
Pumpkin Saison
Imperial Saison IPA (partigyle style with a sour ale from the 2nd runnings)
Low-gravity stout or porter of some variety

 :)

Do you have the recipe for the Lagunitas clone? My Wife and I are having a baby and the midwife loves the Lagunitas so I wanted to brew a batch for her.

I am hoping to bottle my second AG batch, an all grain saison with honey. NZ cascade and german opal, pils, wheat and munich

Oatmeal-Blackberry stout is ready for transfer to secondary.  Just got blackberry puree in the mail yesterday.  May start a batch of honey kolsch as well.

I'll post it when I get home.  I got the receipt from Jamil's Can You Brew It show where he gets the recipe from Jeremy at Lagunitas.  Its worth listening to if you want to brew it.  

Bah, posted wrong link initially.  This is the correct link

Still a newbie, more or less...but I'm brewing my first lager this weekend.  Extract brewing the Brewer's best pilsner kit.  Will be both my first time doing a lager and also my first time doing primary and secondary fermentation in separate vessels.  Wish me luck!

Weds, Thurs and Friday are my weekend this month. Brewed 10 gallons of SWMBO's favorite 10 gallons of Pumpkin Spice ale and 5 gallons of Saison with East Coast Yeast's Saison Blend. I pitched the yeast 3 hours ago and I already have positive air lock!

Pressing apples and pears at the community orchard today, probably for the last time this year, and at the same time planning to discuss brewing with people, which is likely to be mostly cider-related today.

If I get time, I might get a Bierre De Garde together.

Brewing an English Bitter and a hodgepodge Pilsener for Learn to Homebrew day http://www.homebrewersassociation.org/forum/index.php?topic=4234.0 (http://www.homebrewersassociation.org/forum/index.php?topic=4234.0)

The first 5 gallon brew is from a kit by the book and the second is a 3 gallon brew from LME and other sugars, spices and parts put together from stuff lying around the house to see what you can brew. Anyone got some corn flakes!

Spent most of the day at the orchard, and left after dark. Serious quantities of apple juice, and I left with grape juice that's going ot find it's way into pyment.

Rainy day here in Puna

Got over 40 gallons of mead ready to bottle.  Time to get after it!

(...five hours later...)

Put up 8 cases of 75cL bottles.

'bout half way home...

I made 10 gallons of Special Bitter that turned into a ESB due to a boost in efficiency. All Willamettes for hops too. Needed some easy drinking beer for Thanksgiving. Should be able to have kegged in a week and a half, that way the turkey has something to brine in.

I brewed the base beer for an apricot ale that is getting innoculated with a wild yeast
I have been working up to pitch quantities.  That thread is in the Yeast heading. PIC
of the hydrometer tube ....currently cooling down to pitch temps...this yeast was a cold
loving critter.
