A couple nights ago I kegged 10 gallons of a Saison Dupont clone I brewed just before this thread started.  I'm going to wait to tap it for at least a couple weeks.  I'm not sure I'll be able to wait longer than that.

I tapped a Dupont- type Saison over the summer that went empty about as quickly as any of my kegs ever have  (and I have a bunch of hop-crazy friends who schedule their lives around my IPA tappings). It was a really good saison.

It will actually be towards the end of next week but im going to be brewing up a wee heavy.  Just did a 80 shilling. I slimmed some kruasan off the top of that and have a starter going that I'm building up. I'm using east coast yeast  scottish heavy for these.

Brewed up my first beer since May. It was a Belgian Pale, with a lot of homegrown Brewer's Gold, as well as some Caliente pellets. Pitched the Unibroue yeast, and is chugging away today. Also used some Jaggery for the fermentables.
So it goes.

That's gonna be nice. Unibroue + Caliente is a fantastic pairing.

Yesterday I brewed 11 gallons of one of my faithful homebrew quaffers favorites.  US 2 row, Munich L, C40, Warrior, Amarillo, Centennial, and Simcoe hopped APA.  US-05 at 62.....

Tonight its time to keg an ESB that's ready.  I will be trying to reuse the yeast from this batch (Thames Valley) and using it in a Pale Porter.  As I have never tried collecting and getting yeast ready to re-pitch.  It should be an adventure......

Bottled three 5 gallon batches and a couple gallons of cider.  Milled my grain bills for three brews tomorrow. A light hybrid with WY2112, a Mild and an IPA, both with WY1728. Should make for a busy day.

It's going to be an action packed weekend.... 

I just finished making starters for this weekends brews.  A Brown Porter and an American IPA (Amarillo, Citra, Columbus, Simcoe).  My daughter requested that I brew these for her graduation gala next month.

Adding coffee to the secondary on a Chocolate Coffee Stout.  This gets kegged/bottled in a week.

Re-racking 13+ gallons of a Belgian Strong Golden into secondaries (kegs).  This will be going into an apple brandy barrel in a few weeks.

The plan is to do a double batch of Munich dunkel, pitch WLP830 slurry in half and sour/funk the other half.

Going to brew a saison. Finishing hops will be homegrown cascades that my wife picked. Going to use the american farmhouse strain, and rack it onto hibiscus in a couple of weeks. I am hoping that the hibiscus will make the brew a lovely deep red color. Should be a good Christmas beer.

Also bottling an ipa.
So it goes.

The American Farmhouse strain takes about 6 - 7 months to finish up in my experience.  It has a very nice fruity/funky Brett character.  Jolly Pumpkin Bam comes to mind.

I've had this strain more or less done in 4 weeks. I'm sure the brett character would continue to evolve but for an every day drinking you get some brett byte in just a few weeks.

I'm curious to here what happens with actually adding the Jamaica flowers to the beer. I've always heard it done at packaging with a tea.
