I might do a Helles, just because.  Need to take advantage of the cold (coldish) weather while it lasts.

What is this mortgage thing of which you speak?  Wait, I can vaguely remember that from some while back.

Well in an effort to forget that fact Im brewing a BarleyWine.

Splitting the batch half with WLP001 that will get dry hopped, and half with WLP545 that may get some oak in the secondary.

Ill probably parti-gyle it also since I have a vial of WLP041 thats past its date and don't have anything coming up that I can use it in.

Scottish 60/- this weekend for a club meeting in march in which I will present on the scottish/Irish style. couldn't find any commercially available examples of the 60/- so... I am a homebrewer after all.

No brewing.  Bottling my blonde ale, and doing some bookeeping/cleaning equipment probably.

Brewing a Irish Stout on Sunday... already getting ready for St. Pattie's :). Kegging an American Brown, and dry hopping a NW Pale Ale. Fun weekend!

For the first time in probably a year, all my fermentation vessels are full, so no brewing. Got a keg to clean though, and a couple more that need rebuilding, so plenty of ancillary tasks to keep me busy.

I went to the LHBS, and wandered around until I decided to make an altbier. I will probably ferment it a bit warm, because I don't know if I can get it down to the high 50s like I would like. I am going to go to the store though and see if I can find a large bucket that I can put some ice water in. Starter will be started tonight!

Dunkelweizen.  I was going to do a hochkurz double decoction mash originally, but I think I'll just do a single infusion rest at 155 and then decoct to mashout temp.

German helles -- extract style.  Limited time, and all the attention extract has been getting recently made me decide to do it that way.  I figure a clean beer like helles will show how good I can make it.

Oatmeal stout, perhaps. Considering letting the wort simply cool overnight before pitching yeast rather than messing around with sinks full of cold water, as I'm lazy and I don't own a wort chiller yet.  I won't get the cold break out, but I'm not sure whether I care.  Should I?
