I'll be judging at The War of the Worts on Saturday then bottling up some Barleywine on Sunday.

No brewing this weekend.

"Brewed" a slight variant of Joe's Ancient Orange Mead.
I didn't want to go to the store, so I used clementines since that's what I had.
Chugging nicely this morning.

This weekend I'll be drinking in the backcountry...

House IPA for me.  I may squeeze another dunkelweizen in on Monday since I have President's Day off.

I hope to start getting my spring lineup in order too.  Spring and fall are my favorite brewing seasons.  I really like to prepare a short list of the beers I plan to brew for the season.

Teaching a couple friends to brew with an extract pale on Saturday and then Monday I'll be brewing my first IPA in damn near a year with a few new gadgets.  Picked up an inline aeration, sight glass, pre chiller strainer and an RO unit this last week and I'm a bit excited about all of it.

No brewing this weekend, I'll be judging at War of the Worts as well.  On Sunday I'm kegging a brown porter and tasting/back sweetening some meads.

10 gallon batch of Saison, with half getting the French Saison strain and half getting the Dupont strain (and Brett later on). Also need to bottle a BoPils for my brother's birthday.

Making a APA with 35% Munich and only 5% crystal. Racking my Altbier to secondary, mostly to clear out fermenter space...

Packing up my gear and brewing at a friends house.  I'm brewing up some Caribou Slobber (Northern Brewer recipe), except I'm gonna try some Canada Malting Pale Ale malt instead of the 2-Row.  I also have to dry hop my Evil Twin so I can bottle it next weekend.

Mashed in the cream ale.  Using Bru'nwater, the pH was predicted at 5.5, measured at 5.48 at 20oC.  Pretty close.

This should be an easy day.  After 7 lagers that used a variety of long mashes and long boils, and a long chilling time to get to 45oF, this will be a piece of cake.  One hour mash at 150oF and a one hour boil, chill to 62oF with tap water.  Nice and easy.

In the midst of mashing my second attempt at Timothy Taylor Landlord, thanks to Hopfen's tasting notes.  Also smoking 150 pounds of malt for my local brewpub, this time over orange tree chips.

I will do my updated brew next weekend.  Will post the recipe when it is final.

3.5-gallon batch of BIAB Dry Stout on my kitchen stove on Saturday.  I was plenty warm in my PJs and slippers.

5.5-gallon batch of Maibock (double decoction) outside on the brew cart on Sunday.  The high was only about 30ºF - so I had to get dressed.
