I'm going to harvest some yeast from the Belgian amber I brewed two weekends ago and brew a Tripel on Sunday.

No brewin' this weekend, but I'm going to the Glass City Beer Fest with my wife on Friday.  I finally get to taste some Unibroue beers and many more tasty treats.

I'm going to bottle my latest Landlord, and use some of the slurry to make a Burton ale. I am also going to pick up the refrigerator that I purchased off craigslist this weekend!
So it goes.

I'm still digging out of my previous brewing weekends.  Just kegged a golden ale last night that's carbing outside the server freezer due to lack of space.  Going to keg and dry hop an American Brown.  And I must do copious amounts of drinking to get some kegs out of the serving freezer.  If that isn't sufficient I guess I'm bottling growlers of beer and giving them to whomever I can find that would like some to make room since there are two more kegs behind those two that will need space.

Great question!  I'm starting to get fired up to brew this weekend and this just adds to the enjoyment.  The Burton Ale yeast goes on the stir-plate tomorrow eve and will be joining my first attempt at Mr Fosters "White Flag" English Pale Ale from his latest Pale Ale book on Sunday.  This will be the fourth recipe from the book I will have brewed and I really look forward to the task at hand.  Burton Ale yeast is fascinating!!!

Enjoy your brew day everybody!

I did a 3 gallon (ended up with 3.5 gallons) brew in a bag of my black IPA last night. 75 minute mash at 151, raise to 165 for mashout for 10 minutes, pull bag bring to boil; took about 4 1/2 hours from start to finishing cleaning up. Hit around 80% efficiency into the fermenter (hit my target gravity, but had about a quarter gallon more than expected).  I've had issues, for some reason, with hitting my target final gravities with brews in a bag. So I'm hoping I get it this time...aerated well with mix stir, pitched rehydrated US-05...here's hopin'!

Hmmm, I have tried my girlfriend's underwear on, with her permission, and didn't do anything for me. So, I might disagree with your statement there!

No brewing this week. Though I do need to do some drinking. I filled all 12 of my kegs. And have about 4 carboys full.  Good thing camping season is coming.  ;D

If I have time after bottling five gallons of Baltic Porter, and maybe five of a Milk Stout, I'll brew a Cream Ale.  I have all day, so...
