Title: What's Brewing This Weekend - 6/17 Edition
Post by: dbeechum on June 14, 2011, 01:06:42 PM
I'm on the road at the awfully early hour of 5:15 AM tomorrow, so instead of depending upon my sorry butt to do this then - here we go. Whatcha doing brew wise this weekend?

I solemnly swear to not make fun of those who aren't going to be at the awesome super fun party time known as the 2011 NHC in San Diego.

I am finally getting around to brewing the Big Brew Day East India IPA, better late than never!  Doing a 10 gallon batch and then will split 5 gallons and add Brett. Clausenii and Hungarian oak to give it an Old world feel.  Although, I would rather be at NHC this is a close second.

No brewing this weekend. I'll just be imbibing the fruits of my labor and smoking some pork shoulder with a few friends.  8) I'm a little jealous of you folks heading to SD for the NHC. There's always next year, I suppose. Why didn't I go last year when it was in my bloomin' hometown?!

I'll be making the trek by air across this great country to my destination in San Diego. I'll be at the NHC this weekend.  8)

No brewing just tasting.

Right?

No brewing this weekend. I have kegs to fill and evaporation issues to dive into. Hope everyone has a great time in Deigo! Love that town.

I really regret not going to NHC this year!  Good luck to everyone in the second round!  I'd be thrilled and a bit surprised if I get a medal but there's always hope.

Friday night I'm kegging a Patersbier and washing the yeast. Saturday I'm racking a Strawberry melomel and transferring an APA off the dry-hops into another keg.  I also might transfer a Boh Pils off the dry hops into another keg. Then Sunday brewing a Westvleteren-inspired Quad using the cake from the Patersbier.

Let me just start by saying that you suck.

Having got that out of my system, I think I'll brew an APA this weekend.  My current keg is so wonderully clear that it has to be about ready to blow, and I can't live more than a couple of weeks without a hop infusion.

I may also make another attempt at an alt, I did just regrow that yeast to keep it fresh.  Or a witbier, I just got that yeast in not long ago.

My best Alts have been O-fests and Viennas that 'missed'.  :-\

I could live with that.  I've made a couple of Vienna lagers that haven't quite been what I wanted either.

I'd be willing to bet that a vienna of yours that 'missed' was still a 40...

not to digress the topic, but seems like that is such a hard style to nail for some reason - my latest rendition has a little too much malty-dark fruity character going on (probably too much dark munich or caramunich - the latter was a new introduced variable).  reminds me of Boston Lager with less hops.

nothing brewing related this weekend - fermentor is full, all kegs were cleaned last weekend, and the wife's going out with her friends saturday night - steaks on the grill and doing QC on what is on tap I guess :-)

Since I couldn't go to the NHC, I decided to make a hoppy IPA that would make someone from San Diego smile ;D

No brewing for me but I did rack 4 brews into secondaries. Pumpkin ale, Haystack blonde ale, Ruination IPA clone and an amber ale.  ;D
