I've got an 18+ hour day on Mem. Day doing a Jack White show.  May brew today, maybe later next week.  I've got an APA grist ground and I'll dig through the hop freezer and try to use up a bunch.
I don't understand it, why would you spend that much time getting a show set up?  Are you building the stage too? Are you setting up all their gear? Loading and unloading all their gear? 
Go big AND go home.

Load in for the PA starts at 8 AM.  Band gear comes at 10 AM.  Lighting will run from 8 AM til late afternoon.  Sound check and rehearsal will be from early afternoon til maybe 4-5 PM.  Dinner, then a 3 hour show starting at 8.  Loadout from 11P-2A.  Pretty typical schedule for a big rock show.

Now that's just ridiculous for one guy to have to endure.

Now you've got me singing Jackson Browne "Stay Just a Little Bit Longer" for some reason.

I forgive you.  Stagehands HATE that song!  Jackson Browne never had to stick around for the load out!

Just finished brewing a Chocolate Stout - it's a public holiday here so I had the day off.

I've got a mild I need to bottle, if I can make time. I'm going to Revolution Brewing's grand opening party tomorrow night. They've been a brewpub for about 2 years and are kicking off their new production brewery with a bang -- 16 of their beers and 16 guest taps, food and bands. Should be a great time.
It's such a fine line between stupid and clever.

I'll be brewing a cream ale on Friday with some dregs off a bottle of Spotted Cow. It's a shame we can't get it outside of Wisconsin.
Beer is like music. I don't have a favorite. I'll take a well-made example of any style!

Gonna make something "unique"... a Sweetwater IPA clone with rye and lager yeast - an India Pale Lager (IPL).  I'll dry hop heavily at the end of the ferment and throw a couple ounces of dry hops in a muslin sack into the keg to compensate for the lengthened ferment.  Anyone else ever made an IPL?  What's your experience with it if so?

No time for brewing, but I do have some packaging and keg cleaning to take care of.
