might mess around with the barley wine i brewed a month back. That's got to move to secondary for a couple more months before packageing. And sample the Oatmeal Raisin Cookie Stout that I added raisins to the weekend before last. That kicked up a fairly vigourous new fermentation. Big thick creamy krausen. It'll be interesting for sure. I didn't take the raisins into account when I built the recipe and they add a significant amount of sugar.

Unless anything unforeseen happens, Blatzhaus Brauerei is finally going Electric this weekend.

Am brewing a munich dunkel doing something simple (step mash, but no decoction) as the BHE looks like it may be a lot higher than my usual cooler setup - I want the flexibility to just say I brewed a Bock if it gets too high.

Good luck on the electric brewery Paul!

Going to make a lager that does not fit into the BJCP styles, a Landbier.

Looking to hit 1.050-52, about 25 IBUs, fair amount of late hops for flavor, and maybe FWH(?). These beers are balanced with big noble hop flavor.

Grain bill will be 80% Pils, 17% Munich I, and 3% Caramunich. I am thinking about just doing a 153F fusion. Being lazy.

WLP 833 will be the yeast. Fairly soft water. Pitch at 45F, ferment at 48F.

A commercial version that can be found by some is the New Glarus Two Women Lager.

I'm brewing but not sure what yet. I have made two half-gallon starters of WLP090.  So, maybe two 5gal batches to build the yeast up but I'm leaning towards making a big barleywine and pitch both starters.

The Seacoast Homebrew Club is holding a "Learn to Homebrew Day" event at A&G Homebrew Supply in Portsmouth, NH.

Here's our event info: (tried to link directly but it won't let me)
  Event Name or Location: A&G Homebrew Supply.
  Contact Name: Gretchen McDonald.
  Street: 165 High St..
  City, State: Portsmouth , NH.
  Country: United States .
  Website: www.aghomebrewsupply.com .
  Event Description: A&G Homebrew will host all-grain and extract brewing demonstrations from 11am-3pm
  in their parking lot with members of the Seacoast Homebrew Club. The public is encouraged to stop by
  and chat with the homebrewers! Inside, there will be refreshments, prizes, raffles and more! .

We are all brewing a porter to age in a barrel one of the members got from Allagash.  This will be my first attempt at taking my homebrew system on the road.  I just know I'll forget something.

I may also try a pale ale on Sunday using the Falconers Flight I have sitting in my freezer.

Glad to hear it Ron.  Some of those pictures from NYC & NJ are just incredible (and not in a good way).

Brewing a SMaSH recipe this weekend.  Maris Otter malt and Centennial hops.  Was going to brew last weekend but the leaves in the yard called my name.  Or maybe it was my wife that called my name and told me about the leaves in the yard... :o
What's the worst that could happen?  Beer?

Now that I have power back, I can bottle my Porter. I'd like to get one more brew started before hunting season, but time is pretty tight right now. This will probably be all she wrote for a few more weeks for me.

I'll be brewing an extract batch of Waldo Lake Amber for a LTHB Day demo.  First time I've brewed in almost 3 months!

We're feeling it here for you north-eastern storm survivors, hope you all made it through ok.

Since it looks like a good weekend to brew here on the west coast & I need a everyday drinker for the kegerator I'll probably dream something up when I go the HB shop, likely a crisp apa with whatever hops are available.
Cheers!
