No brewing for me, but holy cowbells a lot of scrambling around to get last minute things done for the NHC.

My first attempt at parti-gyle.  An imperial stout with first runnings and a brown ale with second. Cold steeped the dark and crystal malts to add late in the boil. Should be a long but hopefully good brew day!

No brewing per se, but racking & crashing the "express" IPA, ramping down the Oktoberfest from a D-rest, serving a Nut Brown at my cousin's birthday party and cleaning kegs. Maybe it's time to make that vanilla creme soda for the kiddos.
Thank you BEER!

I don't think I will be brewing this weekend but maybe I will do a table saison on sunday just for the heck of it. don't really have room in the fridge for another fermenter but I guess I can get away without it on a saison

Preparing for my journey across this great continent to NHC in Seattle. No brewing this weekend or next...but plenty of tasting in Bellevue. :)

Brewing a Polish Steam - basically a California Common grain bill, but with Polish Marynka hops.

My fermenters are bone dry, and all I have on hand are a few random bottles of an Amber Ale and an Irish Red Ale, not cutting it for the summer months.  Time to get cracking on an easy drinking beer, so i'll be doing a hefeweizen on saturday.  Doing the yeast starter tonight.

No brewing for me until after NHC, but I will be pouring for a local brewery at the Washington Brewers Fest on Sunday, along with another club member.

I get to help with the first ever collaboration brew at Southern Brewing Supply's nano brewery.  I will get to see a lot of new Blichman tools in action.

After a one month hiatus due to a crazy work/life schedule, I'm going to brew a vienna lager with amarillo finishing hops.  Going to call it Verano Companero.   8)

i have no idea what to brew this weekend!  i have an empty carboy sitting here sanitized and stoppered, but no clue what to put in it.  i'd like to make something that matures quickly so i can have it ready for a big campout in 6 weeks.  any ideas to throw at this extract brewer?
