I might brew a dunkel, but I'll more than likely just work on configuring the gas plumbing on my brew stand.

Just turned off the burner and added 6 oz of hops to an English IPA. I used a pound of hops for a 10 gallon recipe, not counting dry hops - hope it isn't too much..  ;D

Wife and kids are out of town on Saturday so it'll be a Belgian Dark Strong day for me.  Brewing up one of my own in the morning and then going to a tapping party for the one my club brewed up at Lost Rhino brewery a month or so back.

Doing a Learn to Homebrew Day event at Summits Wayside Tavern in Woodstock, GA and will be brewing a Smoked Porter (the website states an ordinary bitter, but I changed my mind). I'll get started around noon.

Tomorrow after I check with the viticulturist for the latest field test brix, pH and TA for the ripening red wine grapes I have on order, I'll know if I'll be doing wine or beer.  I think the grapes will need a bit more time on the vine, so I have all ingredients on hand for a partial mash big barleywine using chinook, fuggles and EKG hops, and WY1318 yeast.  I'll mash at 150F.

I've got ingredients and fresh slurry of 1968 for a Fuller's Porter clone, but I haven't decided the brewday yet. And maybe an AIPA with the other jar of slurry. The wife's away next week, so I can make a mess 8)
It's such a fine line between stupid and clever.

Finally, was able to brew some. Did a partial mash BIAB white house honey porter. Miles away from what I had been previously - PID controllers, dual pumps, mash tuns, all outside with polysulfone fittings, etc etc, which would incidentially take up way too much room and take me ~2 hrs just to clean and store. This brew took me about 2 hours and I got to play with my kids in between hop additions. Going to be doing this more often.

I need to take some measurements on the Bourbon Vanilla Porter I did last Friday.  Then make some decisions.  The krausen fell on the 4th day in the fermenter so I'm concerned about where the gravity has gotten to.  Started at 1.108 so this may take awhile.

Planning on brewing an IPA at the SBL Teach A Friend to Homebrew Day at the Savannah Homebrew shop.  Not yet settled on the specifics.  Leaning towards an all Nelson.

I'm having a couple new brewers come to the house for LTHB day, and we'll be brewing an 11-gallon batch of Imperial Porter.  Half will be "plain" Imperial Porter, and half will become Bourbon Vanilla Imperial Porter ala Denny Conn.

Learn to Homebrew Day at "Two Shy" Brewing, a new brewery slated to open in January here. It's being started by 3 of our club members. Can't brew myself as all my equipment and I will be busy helping 4 others brew. For 3 of them it will be their first batch ever......we're all excited. I let them pick what they wanted to do so we've got 2 on a Russian Imperial Stout (yikes) and 2 on an IPA.

We got some pretty good local TV coverage on it, an anchor came out and did a little interview this week and they're running the spot about a dozen times. We're providing food and homebrew samples, so we may get slammed. Wish us luck! Looks like the weather may cooperate too.

Racking 10 gallons of dark Czech lager to kegs, so that we can use the slug of WYeast 2124 to make some sort of lager for Superbowl Sunday.  Leaning toward brewing a Marzen (Febzen?) or Vienna lager.  A blond bock might be nice as well.  Decisions, decisions...
