Brewed a BDS for the first time on the 28th.  OG=1.100.  Made my own "Belgian Candy Syrup" from 1/2 lb of light brown sugar.  Bubbling like mad in the primary right now.  Can't wait to see how it turns out.

This will be third new year that I celebrate by brewing a big beer.  This year's big beer is a Belgian Tripel.  It will join a lineup that includes an English barleywine and a Belgian strong dark--I have a few of both left.

Brewing my first barleywine (if the LHBS is still open at noon today, anyway). Hoping this is a new year's tradition. Still pondering recipes while I work, but leaning toward a half-recipe of English Barleywine (Golden) from the Nov/Dec Zymurgy (edit: p 24) or Hard & Hardy from Brewing Classic Styles (p. 252). I'd like to keep this all-grain, which in a 5-gallon mash tun would require two consecutive mashes, the first with a mash-out to stop the conversion.

Will brew on Monday.  I want to develop a "house" IPA for the year that takes it's cues from Tyranena Brewing Co.'s Scurvy.

My son & I brewed an APA on Tuesday. It was the first time we brewed together. He lives ~400 miles away. He's never done an AG batch before and may be hooked.  It was a GREAT day!!!  Cheers!!!

No brewing this weekend.  Today I added 3 pounds of cane sugar to the 10 gallons of tripel I brewed last weekend.  I hope that works out like it's supposed to, since I have never added sugar to a fermenting all-grain beer before.
I have to blend and bottle my entry for MCAB this weekend, too.  It's a sour solara project.  Wish me luck with that.

Cooling down an English mild. I decided in December 2009 (sort of a resolution) to brew only Belgian styles for all of 2010. Succeeded and enjoyed it, but I am happy to have other options again!
