Bottling my Helles Hop Hammer and crossing my fingers as I take another gravity reading on my maple wine.

After listening to this week's episode of Basic Brewing Radio, I may also doctor up some old brews I have laying around to taste test various specialty grains I have laying around.

No brewing this weekend.  Will hopefully start clearing the garden of branches and yard waste this weekend.  Asparagus season will start soon so I'll need to cut them back as well, but that's another thread. ;)

All the local clubs will have booths and taps at Cigar City's Hunahpu's Release day Saturday.
Sunday I have way too much lawn and housework to catch up on even though I'm way behind on brewing.  Maybe next weekend.....

It's a packaging weekend here. Going into kegs are an APA and a Bitter, both destined for NHC. I'm also judging at the Drunk Monk Challenge on Saturday.

I'm going with iteration #2 of my American IPA.  The first one was my very first AG beer and turned out really well, but I learned a lot.  So I'm going to try it again with some tweeks.  Whole leaf hops (first brew that way) will go in this one.

Simple recipe:
12 lbs Pale Malt
1 lb Crystal 60
1.5 oz Centennial FWH
1 oz Cascade 30 min
.5 oz Cascade KO
1 oz Cascade Dry Hop (~10days)
.5 lb Brown sugar 2 days into fermentation.

Doing two beers tomorrow. My year Cali Common and an attempt at a clone of Mac and Jack's African Amber. Not sure how the second will come out since I have never had it and I am not a huge fan of sweeter style ambers. But the gf asked me to make it for her, so got to keep her happy. Using Ringwood yeast for the first time so that should be interesting.

If the weather cooperates I'll finally get to use up my 2012 hop harvest on an IPA. Hopefully the last brew session at my current house. Its been on the market a month and I'm hoping for an offer soon.

Brewing an Oatmeal Stout and kegging a Belgian IPA.  And of course, some drinking inbetween.

Using up my floor malted Bohemian Pilsner malt on a ...BoPils, of course.  Maybe I'll run a second batch and brew up a batch of Denny's Rye IPA - I've had a couple requests for that one.  It is pretty much a standard by which others are judged, so when it hasn't been on tap for a few months, I get the question asked as to when I will brew it again.

Got a starter going for a wit. I'm using Wyeast 3944 for the first time, as the LHBS was out of Forbidden Fruit.
It's such a fine line between stupid and clever.
