Participating in a group brew with my brew club, The Brew Brothers of Pikes Peak. I'm going to make a saison flavored with lemon peel, and maybe a touch of grains of paradise.

Did an Old Ale yesterday with a friend who is fond of Old Peculier, and we split the batch.

Bought a sack of Best Pils last week, and some Vanguard hops. So, I am making a nice light brew with the two. Here's what I just mashed in on:

4 Gallons

6 lbs Best Pils
2 lbs Best Munich
.25 oz Melanoidin
Bitter with Perle, and flavor and aroma with Vanguard.
US-05 to ferment at about 60F

Have a great New Year's Eve everybody!
So it goes.

This Sunday I plan to brew 11 gallons of an oatmeal robust porter.  Half of it will become a cherry chocolate oatmeal robust porter, using some cherries I picked and then froze this summer + maybe a tad of natural tart cherry concentrate.  I have been knocked silly since a couple days after Christmas with influenza A that morphed into bad bronchitis.  Four in our household got that flu even though we all had gotten flu shots.  I turned the corner today - FINALLY, of course with the help of antibiotics, and had my first beer after nine days with no alcohol.  It was Denny's BVIP and it was delicious!

If anyone gets this bad flu that' going around, I recommend seriously thinking about getting antibiotics ahead of the curve before it hammers your lungs and sinus.
