Post by: dbeechum on September 07, 2011, 06:22:21 PM
Apparently LA decided to have it's "oh my god how freaking hot is it" hot spell. So no brewing for me!

How about you?

gorgeous here in colorado finally!  currently 60 and raining. 

going to brew a couple batches with 2 varieties of wild hops we picked the past month.  I'll be brewing something like how Mikkeller does his single hop beer series... same grain bill, same hopping rate, same yeast, etc etc.

Brewing an Amber Ale and a Witbier for a festival in october.  I may make the Amber Ale with whole leaf hops instead of the usual pellet.  I used leaf hops in my pumpkin ale this past weekend and I kinda liked working with them.

Had an extra gallon so I might grab a sck of frozen blackberries to add to secondary and see what that it like, I imagine a long trail black beary wheat only good.

I hear that about jonesin' to brew. I need my zymurgical therapy... a very complicated week, mostly good, but brain-numbing. Also waiting for a diagnosis for our sweet kitty, Prada, who may have cancer... she had a biopsy today, and the doctor felt it didn't look good.

Assuming my ingredients arrive, I'm brewing a small-batch Amarillo APA, on the deck if it's not windy, on the power burner in the kitchen if it is. Just gonna be ye olde alewife and commune with my brew. Stay OUTTA my kitchen until I pitch my yeast, if you know what's good for you!

After brewing every weekend for over a month (in preparation for my Oktoberfest party), I'm taking the weekend off.  Weather is supposed to be unbelievable here this weekend.  Good time to be outside, maybe go sailing.

No brewing this weekend for me.  The festival down in Port will not be happening either.  The flood gates at Conowingo are all open and I expect Port Deposit and Havre de Grace will have major flooding.  Supposed to be the worst since Agnes in '72.  I am glad I bought a house at the top of the cliff this time. :)

After the last couple weekends my pipeline is pretty full.  I need to work on kicking my keg of pilsner and then keg up the stout.

Yeah, I brewed the last two weekends, so I will be cleaning up things, like the beer in the bottom of my chest freezer that evidently leaked out of one of my kegs. 
It may be time to keg my Witbier.  That'll be nice to have on in two versions, 5 gallons of wit and 5 of poblano wit.
That and plumbing repairs in my 55 year old house.  I hate plumbing.

No brewing for me this weekend.  Have to drive 100 miles to go to a family reunion Saturday, then Sunday the wife has me helping her hang doors, then its my 91 year old neighbors birthday party at 4, followed by a homebrew club meeting at 6.

I did brew a Belgian Blond on Labor Day, using WY1762.  I am hoping next weekend, to use that yeast cake to brew the Rochefort 8 clone.

Nothing on the weekend, but during the week I hope to brew a Groaty Brown Porter and a Special Bitter.

Doing my first all-grain this weekend in the first house I have ever rented! Obviously, it will be my house bitter, and will use some hops I grew at my folks place.

Fixing the leaks in my CO2 system.  I found 5 in the bank of secondary regulators, and I think I'm still missing one.

Time permitting, I'll either keg, clean kegs, rack my Flanders on to some fruit, or something along those lines. :)

I'm brewing a Belgian Wit with bitter orange marmalade a friend of mine made from trees in our backyard.

Unfortunately I have to head to the LHBS to pick up some more yeast as I got stuck in San Diego Thursday night due to the power outage and wasn't able to get my starter going...

I'm brewing a Hefeweizen that will be the last of four German styles for my annual "OktoBEERfest!"  The other three are Märzen, Munich Helles, and Düsseldorf Altbier.  I'm feeling lazy today, so I'm skipping the decoction and using a simple single infusion mash.

I decided to brew yesterday.  Unfortunately, I didn't start until 2pm.  I ended up brewing an American IPA, American Barleywine, and a black IPA.  The Black IPA was actually a bonus since I had plenty of good wort left from the barleywine mash to make another IPA.  Since I hadn't ever brewed one I figured "what the heck".  What is rather amusing is... I am not a huge fan of black IPA's.  I do have to admit though, the wort tastes awesome!  I guess we'll see how it turns out.

Yesterday I brewed a rye pale ale and then a Belgian pale ale.  I finished the BPA with Amarillo, not sure how that is going to work out but it seemed like a good idea at the time.

Brewed an EPA on Sunday.  I intended to get 10 gal of "Best Bitter" with calc. OG of 1.046, but got 11 gallons of "ESB" with actual OG of 1.052.  Got more than I expected (both volume and gravity), so I'm happy.  The wort tasted delicious--I'm expecting good things from this beer.
