Brewed up a batch of american amber. We're changing our routine up a little. Going to brew consecutive batches of the same brew 3-4 times to dial in consistency. We've been brewing a lot of one offs lately and now its time to get back to basics.

I got a book "Brewing Classic Stules" for joining AHA last week. And as much as I would like to brew ever one of the recipes in this book I pick a Northern English Brown Ale. The Nutcastle on page 151 made me stop reading and go to a LHBS and get all the listed supplies. But it will be all grain not extract.
>Under Construction- Brown Ale (4/5)
>In Bottles- Just Plain Pale Ale (12/12) - First Lager (12/28)
>On Tap - Guinness Clone (5/13) - Dry Hopped Red - Wascally Wabbit PA (11/19) - Barley wine (10/2009) - Nut Brown Ale(6/6)

Chiming in late - snuck in a Belgian dubbel (1.063) between Saturday chores.  The mash went three hours because I was running errands.  Split 6 gallons into two batches - one Ardennes (Achouffe), the other Belle Saison dry.  12# Maris Otter, 1# Munich, 0.5# special B, pale chocolate (2 oz), 1# dark jaggery palm sugar.  Kept it honest with 1.5 oz. Styrian Goldings at 60 min, and 1.5 more at 45, but then threw in 1 oz Mosiac at 5 min for fun.

Well I am done just now brewing a BSBA.  Hope it somehow will resemble
Duvel since I can't buy Duvel here....ahem.....It is kind of interesting to me
because I know 1388 Needs a big starter and I grew up a one quart
iteration of it on the spin plate. When I pitched it, just seemed like it did
not reproduce a lot of spawn.  We shall see.  Gravity is 1.054 and the
yeast will have it's work cut out for sure.  I plan on adding 1 lb of
Light Belgian Syrup at high Krausen and another .5-1 lb after a couple
days....at this time it is in my lager tank to try to offset the high ambient
temps in the garage.  The well water is about 60ish degrees.  Yep just
gonna add the syrup straight up.....shall test and see if sanitation holds.
I will ramp temps best I can given I do not yet have a full range
temp. control chamber.

Not brewing this weekend, but all my friends and family are on vacation, so it will be my first time bottling solo. I'm confident I can do it without any problems.

Brewing a 2.0 version of the APA I enveloped last month...thinking I can done a little better with a little more wheat and a little less cara malt.
 Also, I was going to add more cascade earlier in the process for a more citrusy flavor...would that work?

I just brewed a rauchbock using 10 pounds of home smoked malt(pecan wood). It smelled nice and smoky even in the kettle so I'm expecting bacon in a bottle.
I'd really just rather be brewing in sunny Carlsbad New Mexico

Must be some sort of time machine involved. 
I think there's another thread for this weekend.
