Out of town at the in-laws for xmas this weekend so no brewing.  Brewing up a pair of starters for a 10 gallon batch next weekend once I get back into town on Sunday.

haha - no I don't think that can be done successfully.  I've a friend who lives in the Colorado and he's been growing them for quite some time.  Figured what better way to showcase them than a huge hop-bomb.  Most of the bittering will come from commercially purchased hops, but will add 5 oz in the last 10min and then dryhop with another 2oz of these bad boys.

Nothing brewing, but I may spend Christmas Eve morning bottling my amber ale if i hit my FG.  If not, I'll leave it in the fermenter until monday.

I think I shall, I just haven't figure out "what." I have a few days off and not all of them are heavily scheduled. I may even do a Christmas morning brew session. Something small enough to brew on the range indoors, methinks. Easter barleywine? Belgian IPA?

Thanks!  That put me in a great mood for the day!

I'm brewing up an English IPA on Sunday while the kids are distracted with their new toys.  I already told my wife she is on package removal and assembly on Sunday until 2pm.  She smiled and mumbled something about it costing me dearly!

Anyway, I'm looking to age the EIPA until August and enjoy it in the fall.

I'll be brewing a Double IPA this weekend.  I will have to wait until Sunday to brew due to all the baking and visiting I will be doing in the next couple of days.

Hilarious!  I'm going to have to share that link with my Portland friends (although it might overload their 28.8 bps modem connection).

No "Brewing" this weekend due to time constraints but I'll be knocking out a batch of Raspberry Cider on Sunday. I made a 2.5 G batch of this last month and we blew the keg last night. Need to make 5 gallons...STAT! It was awesome!!!

I'm not brewing this weekend but I have all next week off and will be brewing a couple. 

I need to do some transferring this weekend though.  One to a keg and 2 into secondaries.  Maybe I can get that done between the 5:00PM Children's Mass (two of my kids are singing and playing instruments) and Mid-night Mass (wife is cantoring, oldest daughter is singing in the choir and I heard some mumbling about my son playing french horn at it).

LHBS was open this afternoon, so I got the grain and goodies for a half-batch of Fred Bonjour's Amarillo APA ( http://wiki.homebrewersassociation.org/AmarilloPaleAleBeerDuJour ) to do sometime this weekend after the holiday stuff winds down. Rain is projected so this may be a stovetop brew.

Brewed a British Bitter today using the West Yorkshire LE yeast.  Tomorrow I'm brewing a hefe and splitting the batch between WLP300 and 380, planning to blend.

I'll probably do an experimental smoked beer on Sunday.  I've got a new stir plate & O2 system I can't wait to try out.

Did a batch on Christmas Eve.  I have high hopes for this one as there haven't been any obvious screw-ups yet.  Or at least not ones that I'm aware of so far. 
Recipe, or a close approximation is on the Steeping Crystal Malt post I put on in Extract Brewing (and thank you once again to everyone for all their great advice - hence the no major screw ups).

Beer looks great, nice and cool with a wet blanket on it, probably 65 degrees.  Nice dark colour, can't wait until I get home from the in-laws to see how it's going.  Wish I could get it bottled in time for New Years but that won't happen.  So, I'll just drink something else.  I'm flexible.
