What's Brewing This Weekend - 2/17 Edition
« on: February 15, 2012, 10:48:31 AM »
Valentine's Day has passed. What will you be doing in the wake of that vaunted holiday (and with the 3 day president's day weekend to boot)

I'll be teaching an all-grain class on Sunday to make my Cookie Celebration Ale in honor of the recently paralyzed wonder pup who's now walking again!


here's the header art from the column that i describe the basic idea of an oatmeal raisin cookie brown ale with herbs and spices that traditionally have a "nerve stimulant" effect

I think I will be brewing an Rye IPA. I hardly ever brew IPA's as they make me sleepy and my wife doesn't care for them. but she likes some rye ipas so I will give it a try.

Hefeweizen for St. Pats day for me. Good beer to kick off spring since im not a huge fan of dry stout or irish red.

I'll be teaching a friend to brew doing a double  (13 gallon) batch of my BoPils recipe except we're going to use all homegrown Mt. Hood hops instead of Saaz, half the batch will be fermented with 2001 and the other half with 2206.  We may even dry hop with something fun in the two, 1.5 gallon  bonus volumes and end up with 4 different beers. Cheers!
Thank you BEER!

It looks to be a Dortmunder this weekend. It will be the 7th pitch of this yeast. The most I've done before was 5 so we'll see how it turns out. Right now #5 is tasting awesome. #6 has been lagering for a week although the sample out of the fermenter shows good promise.  Cheers!!!

If Homebrew & BBQ aren't the answer, then you're askin' the wrong questions... Cheers!!!

Bottling my copper ale tomorrow and my blonde early next week. This will leave both my fermenters open  :o

Hoping my dunkelweizen kit gets here soon...

I need to keg a Cream Ale (I think it's a cream ale, I may have to look up what I brewed) that's been sitting in the secondary for a while.   :-\

No brewing again this weekend.  I'm refinishing a room in the basement and can barely get into the shop much less brew in there.
