What are you using for yeast?

3787 for the primary. Once it poops out I'll rack onto a fresh yeast cake for each sugar addition. I have an essentially infinite supply of 1056, so probably that for the most part.

What about WLP050?  The Tennesse Whiskey yeast used for distilling.  According to it's profile it works for beer also and produces a clean ferment.

I'll be doing batch #100, a Belgian-style something or other that I'm going to start at about 18% ABV and keep feeding sugar as long as it keeps fermenting.
Sounds really interesting.  I love the big Belgian beers, but that's off the charts !  Congrats on Batch 100 ,btw.

Nothing this weekend.  I should have planned a brew day but was exhausted after my Memorial Day party last weekend.  I realized, looking at my brewing schedule, that with NHC at the end of June and a vacation a week later, my brew days over the summer are going to be a little sparse.

I just racked my Amarillo IPA. I'm brewing a ten gallon batch of a "4 C's IPA" Saturday... It will include 18 ounces of a combination of Columbus, Chinook, Cascade, and Centennial hops. Looking forward to it. I haven't brewed a ten gallon batch in awhile.

I made one of those a couple of months ago, and just kicked my second keg.  That hop combination is killer. I'm trying a rebrew using Falconers Flight 7Cs to see how it compares.

I was going to buy a pound of FF 7Cs a few months ago, but figured I had for of them already to make my own blend.

No brewing, but I'm taking the Anchor tour on Monday. I'm pretty psyched about that.
It's such a fine line between stupid and clever.

I hadn't heard of that one. Sounds interesting for sure. I'm actually not to worried about alcohol tolerance. The 3787 should get well into the teens, if not low 20s, and over that I don't think any yeast has an advantage over any other. Even washes for distilling don't get beyond that. Plus I don't think I can justify buying yeast just for something this crazy.
Beer is like porn. You can buy it, but it's more fun to make your own.

Racking and dry-hopping the results of last weekend.  10 gallons of pale ale (chinook + cascade, WLP001), and 6 gallons of IPA (bravo + chinook, WLP002).  I was gifted a 15 gallon Tall Boy kettle, so I have barely enough equipment to brew both at the same time (gravity fed, batch sparge).  Was fun to try, now I need brew boots.

Ron and I will be firing up the Brutus for an 11 gallon batch of German pils.  I would imagine there will be some beer tasting and cigar smoking as well. 8)  Philly beer week is here, kind of snuck up on me.  Don't know If I will be able to make it up.

No brewing for me this weekend.
Our club will be kegging BW from our club oak barrel and racking the Flanders Red we made on BBD in.  Other than that I'm waiting for my New England Amber and Lobster Killer Red (yes, a lobster was sacrificed during this brew) to ferment out so I can keg and bring to NHC.

Attending the Magic City Brewfest in Birmingham tonight, then brewing up a Saison tomorrow.  Should be a great beer weekend!

I need to bottle up the end of a batch of saison and keg the next variation. Working on a recipe bit by bit. v1 was Flaked Rye and a little wheat malt. v2 drops the wheat malt (cause I didn't have anymore) and replaces the Flaked rye with a tab more flaked kamut.

That's right. 100% Pils and WLP830 slurry from a Munich Helles. It's going to be in the mid to upper 80's and sunny tomorrow. :)

Maybe some D-resting and keg cleaning. Other than that this weekend is for the garden. 

Beersk- You wont regret the collared freezer. 
Yeah, looking forward to it. I think a fridge setup is really what I'd want because I could store hops in the freezer, have bottles and kegs in the fridge part. It'd be a multipurpose appliance. But I already have the chest freezer and a Haier kegerator with a tower. I plan to use the current kegerator as a fermentation chamber and since I ferment in kegs, I can still get three in there.  Win-win! Maybe someday I'll still do the fridge conversion though.

That's a nice idea but when I put the fridge downstairs it ended up being an extension of the kitchen.  I have a few hops in the freezer and a few bottles of beer in the fridge door but the rest is claimed by SWMBO and the tax credits.  I'm not sure how we went from 1 - 18cf fridge to a 24cf and an 18cf and still don't room to lager a beer.  8^)
