Brewing an American Pils tonight.  Something along the lines of Avery's Joe's American Pilsner.

Lots of Big Brew Day events in our area. I think there are 4 sites in Tampa.
I'll be re-brewing my Belgian Golden Strong at the LHBS.

Not brewing anything myself, but on Saturday I'm going to the Big Brew Day at my LHBS (Mountain Homebrew in Redmond), and on Sunday I'll be cracking open the first bottle or two of my Raspberry Wheat to check the carb (it's been two weeks since it went into the bottles).

Maybe I'll see some of the other Seattle-area folks for Big Brew Day!

Just pitched 2 different yeasts into starters for a 10 gallon batch of BoPils next week. I'm splitting the batch to compare the two.

Finally planting my garden this weekend. Hope to finish wiring the control panel on my brewstand and then it's testing which will make it complete.

No brewing.

Hosting brewclub's May meeting Friday night.
Brewing a Northern English Brown Ale on Saturday.
Also kegging an Black IPA/Cascadian Dark/American Style Dark Ale, and moving my Octoberfest from primary fermenter to the lager keg.

It will be a beertiful weekend!

I have not made some beer for a while.

Friday is a FW Union Jack clone.  It was real good last time.

Brewing up a batch of American Brown Ale and dry hopping the IPA that was brewed last weekend. Looking forward to it.

Kegging tonight.  10 gallons of Irish stout (for a party Saturday night), and 5 gallons of Belgian dark strong.

Finished up a Belgian Golden Strong tonight (err, rather this morning). 

Don't know why I'm inconsistent on hitting gravities and efficiency, but it'll still be beer.

Cap's are a great summer beer.  I have one we are sampling, can't wait for some warm weather here.

Just started the boil on a Union Jack IPA clone.

Looks like the last version of my CAP was competing against yours in the first round of the NHC in Indianapolis.  Mine went to the mini-BOS but you took home the ribbon(s)!

Congrats on the wins!

Thanks.  The downside is we are competing in the second round against a good friend from the club with the 3rd place CAP.

Jeff Renner thought the CAP was really good at the last club meeting, which was more gratifying, if you know what I mean.

Did you have any go on to the 2nd round?

That's a nice compliment.

No, out of the three I submitted the CAP did the best.  But I got good feedback from the judges on all three beers so I'm happy.

Bottled a Biere de Guarde last night, (yes, the recipe featured here a few weeks ago) racked my tripel into secondary to make room for todays brew: another tripel, slightly different grain bill and hops schedule.

I'm brewing a Porter that I intend to flavor with bacon in the secondary.
