Flanders brown (kind of) tonight.  100% brett fermented.  Might add some Jolly Pumpkin dregs down the road to kick up the sourness if the brett doesn't cut it.

Going to try my very first mead sometime this week too.  I've got a bunch of raw honey from my grandparents farm and 12lbs of blackberries, marionberries, and blueberries in the freezer.  Been doing lots-o-reading up on the process.

Trying to source oat malt locally, but it looks like I'll have to order online, so my oat malt porter will wait until I've got that I suppose.

The wife is out of town for 2 weeks, so it's brew central at my place.

Nothing brewing this weekend.  I'll keg the ESB and one of these weekends I should probably bottle the barleywine that I brewed when my son was born.  He just turned 9 months old so I guess it's about time to get it into bottles.

Other than that just watching the airlock bubble on the CAP and quality control sampling.

10 gallons of BoPils tomorrow or Friday. Still trying to decide on a decoction schedule...

I'll be cleaning and possibly kegging this weekend, I've got 20 gallons ready for packaging.  Or if it's a stag weekend I'll be brewing 5 gallons of hefe, and maybe 5 gallons of Flanders, but that is more likely to be next weekend.

I'll be judging the BrewFest Homebrew Competition‏ on Saturday. I'll also continue to work on the vegetable garden Sunday.

No brewing this weekend.

Kegging and bottling the first 10 gallons of AG! Very anxious to try it!

Stringing up lines for the hops... slow start here in the NW this year.

No brewing :(

Kegging double decocted hefeweizen. Brewing double decocted helles.

I have a feeling my next brew will involve a very straightforward single-infusion mash!

no brewing.  will determine if my mojito mead is ready for bottling or if it needs another week of dry-minting.

I'm tossing around the idea of either an Alt or an IPA.  Hmmm... I've got a pound each of Centennial and EKG's that I haven't opened yet.

No Brewing here either.  I'll probably be sniffing the airlock on my Oktoberfest and hopefully cleaning out the brew shed.  Geez, what a disaster!

No brewing this weekend, but I will make a starter for my Saison which will be next weekend, hopefully. :)  Tapped my "Brew for the Cure", a raspberry wit, nice pink tint, crisp and tart.

Taking the weekend off for recovery purposes.  Plus I've got 3 kegs on tap, 5 in waiting, and 2 batches fermenting.  I'm set for a bit.

Bottling my lemongrass-rye cream ale and hopefully brewing the Nutty Man southern english brown from Brewing Classic Styles as part of my brew-through of that book.

I finally have a weekend to brew again.  So... I'm making a Oktoberfest and an Amber this weekend.  I know I'm late on the O-fest but I didn't have any other choice.

I also need to clean 6 kegs and try to finish my new grain mill cart.  My wife an one daughter will be out of town.  another daughter is buried in school projects and my oldest daughter and my son can drive themselves around so I might actually get some this done.

I don't think I'll get any fishing done though.

Brewing my tweaked Ranger inspired IPA tomorrow. Probably scrubbing bottles, too. Which is still better than scraping and painting the basement.

Going to attempt a Dogfish Head Shelter Pale Ale clone. Can't get DFH out here on the Left Coast, figured I would try to get a facsimile.

No brewing for me this weekend.  I have a 'Meet & Greet' with the members of the Flying Bike Cooperative brewery on Saturday, and I'll probably sample my Chamomile Ale to see how it's coming along (in kegs for 2 weeks now - I think I may need to dry hop w/ a bit more chamomile).

Did a janet's Brown Ale today.  It went well, no screw ups, not one swear word.  5 hours and 15 minutes for a 10 gallon batch.  pH was right on the money as predicted by Bru'nwater.  Gravity was one point low.  Fermantation signs are evident 7 hours later.  Sometimes it all goes right.

Just a day of bottling a California common and porter that I like to have on hand. No brewing until next weekend as I'm out of stock.... Have to hit the brew shop next week.  :-\

I was wrong.  A few more days maturing and the chamomile flavor is coming through just right.  It even has a bit of a honey character to it.  :) 

I'll be bottling some either tonight or tomorrow to bring to my homebrew club meeting this Friday.  Saturday I may keg my latest IPA.  I haven't decided yet if I'm giving it another week in the fermenter yet or not.  Probabaly not.  I need some more variety on tap.  ;)
