Good to hear you're feeling better.  No brewing this weekend...club events sat. and sun., along with doing the painting to finish (I HOPE!) the bathroom remodel.

Judging the Cascade Brewers Cup this weekend, ~425 entries.  The biggest Washington comp ever, not counting the first round of the nationals.

After three weeks, my WLP833 starter (3L followed by another 3L) finally looks ready to go.  Think I will brew a nice Mexican Vienna in a Negra Modelo vein on Sunday that should be fermented, lagered, and ready to drink at my friend's Cinco de Mayo party in a couple of months. Hopefully three weeks later (March 26 or 27), I will use that yeast cake and split it for a double brew day....Oktoberfest and Maibock.

Bottling my Smoked Porter, and racking the Black IPA which is going to get some serious dry hopping. If things go well, I might get to a Biere de Garde that I've been meaning to make for a bit...

I forgot I'm auctioning myself off tonight to raise money for the PTA at my kids' school.  Top bidder gets a starter homebrew kit from my LHBS (http://mountainhomebrew.com/), and I'll give them a homebrewing lesson at my place or theirs.  That should be fun :)

Way too much stuff going on to brew.  Saturday morning a 5K run (or walk) to benefit a friend.  Saturday afternoon the Florida Brewers Guild Festival (I get to announce the awards for Best Beer in Florida at 4PM). Sunday morning is the Gasparilla Arts Festival downtonwn Tampa.  And Sunday afternoon is the Brewers Ball, the culmination of all the pro and homebrew competitions for Florida we've been working on for the past four weeks.
Whew!  I want my life back.....As long as it includes beer.

I hope I did!  I didn't see the bids, it was a silent auction.  But it should be a good time, introducing someone to the hobby.  Hopefully they'll love it. :)

A Belgian Tripel is next on the docket, just have to grab some dried chamomile from a nearby health food store.  Still waiting on my special order yeast for the Ginger Saison I'm planning, I'm bummed that it hasn't arrived yet. :(

I got my special bitters in the fermenters, now I'm about to sparge my robust porter.  Half of it will be a vanilla porter, half will be coffee porter once it's in the kegs.

No brewing.  Bottled BVIP and kegged an all dark Munich alt.  Preliminary tasting is very good.   We'll see how it is after aging and carbonation.  Next up is helles or raspberry wit with frozen berries from last years fall crop.

Got the grains crushed, hops and salts measured, yeast starter in the fridge for a day-off brew tomorrow.  Looking forward to it.  Only thing I'm wavering on is setting up the brewery in the garage tonight since it's still pouring outside.  That might have to happen tomorrow morning after the kids get dropped off at daycare.

Did a BoPils today using a decoction for the first time.  I was only planning on doing a single from sacch rest to mashout but didn't quite get to my sacch rest temp from the protein rest so I did a small one to bump up the temp.  Pretty easy.

Thinking about brewing an Amber ale this weekend, been a while since I've brewed one.

Bottling a Pale Ale probably thursday, and brewing a Rye IPA with centennial, cascade, and amarillo hops, and Old Newark Ale yeast.  Need to get cracking on the brewing, because I plan on using this batch for the groomsmen at my wedding.  I'm only doing a 2.5 gallon batch for now.  Of course, if it's good, I'm going to want to drink it.  So i'll probably have to make another one.
