What's Brewing This Weekend - 7/20 Edition
« on: July 18, 2012, 10:49:21 AM »
Another month is rapidly fading behind us!

As we suffer through another week of high 80's in LA, what will you be doing o swelters of the nation?

I would gladly trade high 80's for 103*F forcast for Nebraska.  Planning on brewing a Thaison (Thai spice/saison fusion) and either a Black Rye IPA or Nelson Sauvin single hop APA.  I still haven't decided yet....

No brewing for me.  Doing the engineering work thing on Saturday and doing the house work thing (skim coating another room of the house) on Sunday.

My first all-grain (Hoptoberfest) is in the ice bath as we speak. Tonight I make the starter for Tuesday's Belgian Barleywine. Hopefully I can get to the LHBS today before this storm gets too bad, so I can grab some Special B for the BW and sparkolloid for my melomel.

I'm going to brew a sorghum syrup based gluten-free beer for a friend - a 15 srm hoppy ale.  First extract with steeped grains brew I've done in a long time.

Jason, sounds like you are brewing Bad, Bad Liege Brown, baddest brown in the whole darn town.

Nothing brewing this weekend.  Taking the kids to Sesame Place on Friday.  Cold crashing a couple of beers that I'll probably keg early next week.

Nothing brewing this week end, but I might do a starter for my oktoberfest that I'm going to try to fit in over the next couple of weeks.

Thankfully we are being spared the hot temps everyone else is getting.

Tomorrow I am doing a double brew day. My updated Cali Common recipe and a small batch of the IPA I have been working on.

Cheers. Try to stay cool out there!!

No brewing this weekend. Kegging a saison, delivering another one to a competition, and starting to pack for vacation.

American Pale.  What is the boards thinking about 10% of grain bill being 40L caramel?  I'm pretty sure that is what Brewing Classic styles uses since the recipe is adapted from BCS.  I may dryhop with fresh Cascades from garden as they look like they will be ready next week, which is unusually early for me.

High 90's to low 100's forecast for as far as you can see here in Iowa and no rain worth thinking about.  No brewing for me as the ground water I use for cooling is warm enough to cook with most days.

Saturday is "summer oil change day" at my house.  I'll get the truck and the Vue done before it gets hot and then curl up in the basement.  Sunday we'll skip straight to curling up in the basement.  TD hot to do much of anything.

Where the heck are we going?  And what's with this hand basket?

The Delaware State Fair - Second Annual Battle of the Brews is being held on Saturday.  I will be overseeing the judging of the competition. Let the good times roll!  :)

Sadly, no brewing this weekend. Gonna head up to the beautiful Colorado Rockies for some sunshine and hiking.
Beer is like music. I don't have a favorite. I'll take a well-made example of any style!
