I'm bringing spring in early with a nice bright IPA. Also bottling my Brown Porter type beer that I plan on using for a wassail.

Also glaring at my cider, cause I don't know whether it will be done in time... Definitely need to do 15 gallons next apple season... 2.5 isn't going to last till february.

hoping to brew an ordinary bitter recipe but with saison yeast (need the starter for a big beer later on) we will see how that turns out!

kegging a porter and brewing an american amber ale - still deciding on cascade or columbus for the flameout hops - might have to flip a coin.

I might brew a weizen, but I have some brewery tasks to accomplish (cleaning, kegging, etc).

On the list to brew are a Doppelbock, and a big old English Barleywine Thomas Hardy type thingy to use all the 1028 yeast cake from a SSoS.

Probably keg my None More Black IPA on Sunday, but gotta clear out one of my taps before I can do that, preferably.  That shouldn't be a problem as there's not much left of it.  I had a sample of it and it's kinda bitter.  I accidently added 2 oz of fwh instead of 3/4 of an ounce so I had to adjust the rest of my hop schedule so it wouldn't be bitter as sh!t.  But apparently that didn't work.  It was a blend of Simcoe, Chinook, and Cascade. 
I also added debittered black at the end of the mash before taking first runnings.  Would the bitterness of debittered black malt come out more if I ground it to a powder?
Go big AND go home.

I would think so. small particles = more surface area = more extraction of bitterness

We may have bitten off more than we can chew, but we will give it a shot.

1.   Bottle an Irish Ale
2.   Make 3 gallons of mead
3.   Brew an American Ale
4.   Smoke Chickens
5.   Have a beer and a cigar and relax and enjoy the warm weather.

Brewing up 5 gallons of White Sage Wit for the wifey.  Kegging 10 gallons of a Black IPA.  Kegging 1/2 of a sweet mead made using our honey harvest from this year and putting the other 1/2 on 12 pounds of pears and 1.5 oz of ginger.

I'll be bottling some beer to make room in my chest freezer. I'm also still trying to organize the beer cellar. I might try to brew an AAA on Sunday.
