81.5% 2 row
11% Eng Med Crystal
5% Victory
2.5% Pale chocolate

Chinook to bitter
4oz Cascade/Centennial at 15,flameout and dryhop (+1oz Columbus)

What about you?

Working all weekend, but have over a week with no work coming up soon.  I hope to work on my brewing deficit during that time.

No batches going in the kettle this weekend but I have some other stuff going on. I'm lagering my first lager, so that's going to tie up my fermentation chamber for a while. I'm going to go ahead and lager a barleywine with it. I have an imperial stout that is finishing fermentation and after resting for a couple weeks I'm going to add it to the chamber with the other two beers for a brief lager. Then all three will get bottled up late May/early June, so I'm going to start growing up some yeast for bottling those three beers plus some blackberry lambic.

I also have a couple brett strains I'm trying to build to a pitchable quantity, so I have those working over the weekend and next couple weeks as well.

I am going to do another batch of California farmhouse. This time with flaked Kamut maybe, or something else from the bulk section. Pitching half with slurry from the last batch (a mix of three different whitelabs vials, Belgian ale blend, Belgian ale and American farmhouse blend) the other half with cultured bottle dregs from Almanac Farm to Barrel Brewers Reserve # 1

This weekend I will be hopefully be replanting the tomatoes & peppers I lost to the surprise frost we got this week. I also need to rack my blackberry melomel one last time and tonight I will be be taking that first step into the wild and pitching some Brett into my Biere de Garde.

I wasn't planning on brewing for a while, but I have some free days over the next couple of weeks. I'm thinking I might go for a simple ESB.

I'm brewing an all Amarillo IPA. I'm looking forward to it since I haven't brewed in over a month. I'll also be re-using harvested yeast for the first time. I was worried it wouldn't be alive, but the Chico yeast is burning up the second stage of the starter. Everything looks a go for tomorrow morning!

No brewing this weekend but transferring a Dort into a fresh keg and dry hopping an IPA for my Memorial Day weekend party.  Going to throw some steaks on the grill later.
