Yep, absolutely looking to eclipse last year.  I'm brewing up a batch of my Nut Brown Ale as I continue to perfect the recipe.  Will probably be moving my English IPA to secondary to start the aging.  With any luck I'll be able to let it age 9 months before I run out of patience.

Heading up to Philly specifically Capozzoli's Metalworks Cafe to get the finishing touches done on my single tier brewstand. Cap is going to do some TIG welding i.e. fit and weld burner brackets, pump brackets, etc...

No brewing this weekend.

No brewing this weekend but I have got to do something about this keg emptying situation that is becoming so prevalent in my serving area.  My pale lager, my IPA and my Belgian IPA hit the dregs in the last two days.  If I don't brew soon I will run out of homebrew and have to rely on the purchasing power of money I may not have.
Oh, wait, I can keg some more light lager and bock and I've got a Tripel and a mead fermenting.  I should relax.

Not brewing this weekend.  Did a mild on Monday past.  Will be finishing up the stonework on my fireplace (pointing).  Hopefully relax and watch some football and drink some beer.

SMaSH IPA here as profiled in another thread.  Marris Otter, hop-bursted with Columbus, US-05. 

Got a bunch of new gear to try out too - new keggle, 210K BTU burner, and refractometer.  Can't wait - was hoping to have brewed twice over Christmas\New Year's break and did nothing due to sickness spreading around the family.

Saturday is our new club's Huge Brew day, we'll be doing an 80 gal batch of IIPA to fill up a new 3bbl fermenter that one of our members needs to test - he's going pro (he's actually got 4 of them). On his system it takes two mash/boils to fill it so it will be a long, fun day and we'll all bring kegs to fill when it's done.

Brewing my first ever mead - mojito mead.
Mead here too.  Pyment actually. Just a 3 gallon batch. OG 1.124 & pitched Lalvin ICV-K1 (V1116). I'm thinking this one might be good in a year or two. Also moved 5 gallons each of a Doppelbock & Bock to kegs to lager. Cheers!!!

Brewing a Rye IPA tomorrow.  I'm using flaked rye this time instead of malted rye (about 20%) and will be hopping with Warrior, Amarillo and Santiam.  I hope the spiciness of the rye goes with the spiciness of the hops.  I may ferment half with Belgian Strong yeast for even more spiciness. 
Today I added some peppers to a wheat beer and kegged a pilsner.

Decided to do Northern German Pils instead of Schwarzbier today. Collecting first runnings now. 8)

Will revisit Schwarzbier in a few weeks.

It'll be easy to surpass 2010 because I was only able to brew 30 gallons.  I'm already at 12 gallons in 2011 and have a $100 gift certificate for Northern Brewer.  I may pass up 2010 in February this year.

I am planning on brewing the Caribou Slobber from NB this week and use Wyeast 1450.

Had to go to a conference this weekend, but If I'm not horribly jetlagged I'll be brewing an APA next weekend when I get back to Britain.

This past saturday I helped a friend brew his first batch of beer. Just a simple extract Nut Brown Ale. Hopefully he will get into brewing as much as I am.

Denny, what is your laggering method for temperature control?  Don't think I've seen you mention that in any posts and I enjoy your simplified approaches.
