Methinks I need more than one carboy!  :o

Me thinks so too.  ;)

Nothing brewing for me this weekend.  I have to keg two lagers to clear out the chest freezer and make a starter for next weekend.

Very excited for brewing this weekend. Finally got one of my best friends into brewing, we are doing his first batch!!! He has been a long time light (actually ultra light  :-\) drinker. He brewed a few with me and amazingly fell in love with IPA and hops.  ;D

For him we are going to brew an extract Stone IPA Clone.

For me, I am brewing an all grain Schwarzbier.

After we are heading to Firestone Walker Pub for a little brew celebration!

It's funny how that works. I never liked beer until I had a roommate in college show up on move-in day with a case of Harpoon IPA. I was instantly hooked. I think if it was something light like a BoPils or a German lager, I would have said "yeah, I still hate beer" and never developed a taste for it. But the flavor of a good IPA just blew me away. I was hooked and the rest is history ;D

A rye schwarzbier is in the kettle as I type.

That sounds really good! Please report back with your impression when it's done. Cheers!

No brewing this weekend, got ten gallons rolling on Monday. Keg cleaning and maintenance. Think I heard a leaky popet the other day. And I really need to focus on kicking a keg of pale.

I brewed 10 gallons of psuedo-roggenbier yesterday.  10 pounds pilsner, 10 pounds 2-row pale, 5 pounds rye.  It's got Perle for bittering and Mt. Hood at 20 minutes and flameout, and I'm using Nottingham at 58F to ferment clean.
Plus I finally got around to racking my Belgian brett blonde onto cherries in one bucket and crabapples in the other with a healthy slug of yeast slurry into each bucket.
I'd really just rather be brewing in sunny Carlsbad New Mexico

I'm brewing an Anonymous American Ale.
In a humble log cabin off an unregarded back road, somewhere, deep in the heart of Pennsylvania’s hill country, we find our intrepid hero — the Brush Valley Brewer.

I spent all day yesterday judging homebrews at the Yuengling Brewery for Best Florida Beer Championships.  I'm taking today off.

Still just can't get used to "Yuengling" and "Florida" in the same sentence :)
