Plans have changed. My buddy just picked his Cascade plant today. Gotta figure out what to do with them tomorrow.

This week I washed yeast for the first time, one was an amber and the other a Saison.  So this weekend I'm brewing the same amber with Victory added and I'm doing my same basic Saison, but I'm going to add some coriander and orange peel.  Both using the yeast I washed w/ starters.

Wish I could brew, but lookin' like I'm going to be busy doing other things...
Perhaps I'll brew Monday or something. I do need to keg a vienna lager though, so I may do that when I get a chance.  German lager, yummmmmm.

No brewing, the fermenters are full. Have a big Irish Red and an English IPA going crazy right now, maybe next weekend or the weekend after that. For all of those brewing this weekend - good luck and tear it up!!!

No brewing for me this weekend. 

I will be taking my daughter down to Boston for the weekend. We will be checking out the Boston Aquarium on Saturday and taking her to her first baseball game on Sunday.

No brewing, but I will be drinking the BDS I brewed for my birthday.

And perhaps some other libations, as well.

Getting off work here about 30 minutes. Going to head home and brew me an American Stout and then an IPA. After brewing almost every week for 2 months I've been a 3 week break, so I am very excited about getting my brew on!

I have 2 in primaries right now and the marching band season starts tonight.  The short story here is no brewing for awhile.   :-\

No brewing this weekend, but sampling some really good Belgians.  I'm also listening to the chorus of airlock activity from my Saison experiment in progress.

Irish Red Ale-->Americanized, of course, w/ Cascade hop additions; so, it is more of a west-coast Red Ale.
OG goal was 1.051 (11 gal), got OG of 1.060 (11.25 gal).

Just started two beverages:

MyFirstMead: 1.114 OG, Basswood honey, US-05 (no Lalvin 71B at the homebrew store).

"Rockin 2-Fast," a hybrid English/American Brown ale.
OG came out at 1.055.  The thought is to have an american hop character, backed up by some of the fantsatic Simpsons Crystal malt, and a nice bready note too.  This was a last-minute decision between fermenting with US-05, or some saved Thames Valley-2 in my fridge.  Ended up saving the TV-2 for my next batch of bitter, and tossed the US-05 into this one.

Amt    Name    Type    #    %/IBU
7 lbs    Golden Promise (Simpsons) (2.0 SRM)    Grain    1    53.8 %
3 lbs    Amber (Crisp) (27.5 SRM)    Grain    2    23.1 %
1 lbs    Biscuit Malt (23.0 SRM)    Grain    3    7.7 %
1 lbs    Crystal, Dark (Simpsons) (80.0 SRM)    Grain    4    7.7 %
8.0 oz    Chocolate Malt, Pale (200.0 SRM)    Grain    5    3.8 %
8.0 oz    Crystal, Extra Dark (Simpsons) (160.0 SRM)    Grain    6    3.8 %
0.50 oz    Galena [11.00 %] - Boil 60.0 min    Hop    7    22.7 IBUs
0.50 oz    Amarillo Gold [8.50 %] - Boil 10.0 min    Hop    8    2.8 IBUs
0.50 oz    Galena [14.00 %] - Boil 10.0 min    Hop    9    4.5 IBUs
0.50 oz    Amarillo Gold [8.50 %] - Boil 1.0 min    Hop    10    2.3 IBUs
0.50 oz    Galena [14.00 %] - Boil 1.0 min    Hop    11    3.8 IBUs

It's a multi-tasking day for me.  Just finishing the mash of ten gallons of pecan-smoked amber ale and am on the first of three sacks of grain smoking over alder for my buds at Swamphead Brewery.  Later I will keg the IPA that's been dry hopped for two weeks with amarillo.
