I might do my first lager! maybe. maybe next weekend instead. At least I want to get things lined up and make sure I can get the quart of yeast from the local brewery. and decide on a recipe. There is also the 10 gallons of Ordinary Bitter I have to do something with. Gotta drink more porter and get that keg empty.

Were gonna do a scotch ale.  The first one we did about 6 weeks ago turned out great.  I just hope we can replicate......

Off-week in the brewhouse. Heading to 4 Hands' Lupulin Carnival in St. Louis.

Anyone else headed that way?

No time to brew this weekend.  Gasparilla Art Show Saturday morning, Florida Brewers Guild Festival Saturday afternoon, and Brewers' Ball Sunday afternoon, which is more like a private local beer fest and awards ceremony with a live band.  This all is just the beginning of Tampa Bay Beer Week which culminates the following Saturday with Hunahpu's Day at Cigar City.  There are events all through the week.  I think even Charlie P. will be in town.

Trying to decide on which lager - maybe a Bock.  Or just another Bo Pils with the floor malted Weyermann I have on hand.... Thankfully I have two 10 gallon batches that are ready to rack and harvest yeast from!

My Farmers Tan Pale for the National Homebrew Competition. It did well as an extract brew at a competition a year ago getting a 40. This time it's all grain and first time in the National Homebrew Competition. I don't enter comps much but couldn't pass up the best competition.

I'm thinking about doing a 15 minute APA I saw on Basic Brewing Video.  I'm going to be busy this weekend and I haven't done an extract batch since going all-grain about seven months ago.  Should be a fun experiment and a quick way to get five gallons of beer.  It also means less time brewing in the snow.

I won't be making the trip from KC for that festival but I love the fact that brewing has really returned to STL.  I've tried beer from most, if not all, of the breweries that will be at the Lupulin Carnival.  I really like Urban Chestnut, 6 Row, Perennial and 2nd Shift.  Too bad Civil Life won't be there.  If you have time try Civil Life as well.

I'm planning to brew a Brown Porter on Sunday. I just prepared the yeast starter for it tonight.

Bottling my porter, but otherwise nothing doing for a while here. I'd love to get another lager (thinking either schwarzbier or Märzen) in while I have good temps for it, but I just don't know if I can make the time.

It works really well. I do a series of 1-gallon batches of this when I want to test new hop varieties, and I'm thinking of trying it out to test a few specialty grain varieties I've been wanting to experiment with.

Now that I was able to register for three slots for the National comp, need to get some beers done. So I'll be dry hopping an APA and brewing a Saison. Spent yesterday evening shoveling snow while brewing up a Premium Bitter.
