Title: What's Brewing This Weekend - 1/21 Edition
Post by: dbeechum on January 19, 2011, 09:07:05 PM
Step right up and give us the lowdown.

Are you brewing? What are you prepared to amaze us with?

No brewing this weekend - I'll be running a competition!

tough call.  may have some commitments, which would mean none.

but, if I got nothing to do, perhaps I can rack my pils to kegs and sneak in a house IPA brew - first time using Rahr 2-row...

A 3 gallon batch of bitter and then an RIS for my 100th batch. I've also got an IPA that's about ready to bottle. Yep, 100 batches and I've bottled them all.

Planing on brewing Sunday.
I did not decide what it will be yet.

Was planning on brewing up another round of the strong golden ale this weekend but our water main sprung a leak on Monday so I'm out of commission, in more ways than one, until it's fixed.  Hopefully that will happen next Wednesday and I'll be up and running for a brew day next weekend.

Once the yeast are bumped up it is time for a Bo-Pils.  Will then have 2A, 2B, 2C lagering.  I'm on a Pils kick right now.

Going to brew a California Common - and this thread reminded me I need to get my starter going today!

My starter is priming as I type for my Ofest that I'm brewing on Sunday. Also tweaking the burner design on my single tier brewstand.

A weekend of firsts for me.  Setting up my Top Tier system on Friday/Saturday then brewing up my first Lager with the new brewery on Sunday.  Going with JZ's North of the Border Vienna recipe.  Starter is cranking away as I type this.  A big thanks to Sean for his 2 stage starter guide (http://seanterrill.com/2010/03/08/two-stage-starter-calculations/)!

Congrats! This is a bottle-cleaning weekend for me, so I'll be ready to bottle my second batch of Amarillo APA next weekend. Probably another month before I brew again, with one thing and another.

update: I may have to find time to brew that IPA this weekend - to my suprise, went to pull a pint from two different taps last night and both only pushed about 6oz before !pfft!. 

the on deck fridge just got dangerously low, down to only 5 kegs, 3 of which are extended lagering not ready for 1-2 more months  :o

guess my efforts to keep commercial buying to a minimum are paying off  :)

I need to brew something that will be ready fast so I'm thinking  maybe a rye pale ale, 1.060 OG or maybe even a mild.  I'm fast running out of pale beers and I already have 2 cold fermenting beers going-an alt and a helles rauchbier.

Nothing brewing this weekend.  I have a generic yellow light ale burbbling away.  Maybe I'll transfer it to a secondary.

Brewing a dunkelweizen tomorrow.  Was planning on doing it last weekend, but I had to work.  Didn't have time to make a starter this week (work has been crazy) so I'll have to bite the bullet and pick up another tube of WLP380 tomorrow morning at the LHBS.

Also, tapping a keg of saison this evening.

I'm having trouble deciding between a Kolsch, a blonde ale, or a Dusseldorf...

'Kegged 5 gallons of Tripel today and got set up to brew German Weizen tomorrow. 
I'm going to split the batch between Wyeast 3638 Bavarian Wheat and 3068 Weihenstephan yeasts.

Just finished up an APA based on Fred's Late Hopped Amarillo Pale.  I added .25lb biscuit malt to the grist, and subbed 13oz of late hopped, homegrown Cascade hops from last Fall's harvest.  I predict it will be stunning!

Transferring a cider and kegging an IPA. No brewing. I've missed out the last two weekends. Will have to make something happen next weekend or I'm going to fall off of my pace goal for the year!! Need to kick it into gear.

Just finished brewing my weizen and kegged my "not Denny's Rye IPA" from a couple weeks ago.

Bottled the Chamomile Pale Ale and the IPA on Friday.  Now I just need to transfer the Old Ale to secondary for some aging.

There is currently a fabulous-looking, brown & bubbling carboy of porter at the house (my first ever brew) that was started on Saturday.  ;)

We have been making wine with a few other couples for a few years now, which has been fun and was great way to learn about fermentation and the processes involved (timing, sterilization & using hydrometers etc) from someone with knowledge and experience.  I'm really excited to cross-over to beer this year in time for summer.

Nothing beats a nice cold brew on a hot summer day - except of course, a nice cold brew you made yourself!

Cheers!   :)
