Hey Drew..welcome back.  :)

I finally finished the kegerator, so now it's on to install my utility tub.

No brewing but kegging a 5 gallon batch of a Belgian Dubbel.

Say hi to Ted for me.  I was going to go to that, but I'll be retaking the tasting part of the exam, going for Master.

Actually looking for ideas.

I have a new years party with lots of old friends.  Mixed crowd, some BMC drinkers, some Craft Brew guys, and some who are in between.  I want to bring a keg or two of homebrew.  Need to make something that will be done in time and that will appear to the masses (without selling out!)  I generally do either an irish red or northern english brown for events like this since I find they appeal to a wide assortment of folks.  I keg and sometimes filter so no need to be concerned with bottle carbonation or conditioning times.

Any thoughts.... Frankly I am in a funk and having some "writers block" so any motivation would help!

A Cream Ale or Blonde Ale are usually BMC crowd pleasers...  Cheers!!!

Brewing an American Amber Ale on Saturday.

I also need to bottle an American Wheat (assuming it ever got around to finishing) and a Fat Tire.

Boy I'm glad it finally cooled off, marching band got over and mock trial is done.  I can finally do some brewing again.  All I have to work around is 2 basketball seasons and Christmas.   :D

Hoping to get a saison going tomorrow with an eye towards entering it in the Upper Mississippi Mashout. Kegged a premium bitter last night and tapped the Irish heavy.

If I can get the book editing under control, then I'm going for an Imperial Stout this weekend. It's the last chance I have to get anything through primary before switching continents for the holidays (where I will brew).

I think I'll finally get to brew my sticke alt this weekend.  I'm shooting for around 1.065-70 for the OG with lots of hops.  I've never brewed an alt, but I have Hallertau Hersbrucker, Tettnanger, and Perle on hand.  Any suggestions?

Cleaning up 96 bottles for a pair of 5 gallon batches. One witbier, and one scottish ale.
BTW - Yes, I know all about the kegging options  :) but cheap prevails over easy for the near future  :-\

I'm doing a big weizenbock.  1.104 anticipated OG.  I'm going to call it Tweiczenbock, as in a double weizenbock.

I brewed a Schwarzbier today. I also cleaned and hooked up my new kegging setup. My first beer in the "tank" is a Bohemian Pilsner that I've had lagering for a couple of months.

Just finished a 10gallon batch of oatmeal stout. Despite running out of propane after 15min, probably the easiest brew day in a year

Well instead of brewing I build a walking cooler. Well someone else was building. I was just a beer boy.

Brewing a Belgian Golden Strong on Sunday.

Just finished cleaning up from the brewday.  Hit everything exactly on except my boil off and ended up with a lower OG than I had hoped for.  Still figuring out the boil off rate from the new kettle.
