What's Brewing this Weekend - 8/3 edition?
« on: July 31, 2013, 07:36:10 AM »
I brewed some fest bier last weekend, but will be kegging a robust porter this weekend and brewing a RuinTen clone - 40+# of grain and 1.5# of hops for 12 gallons.  Gonna push the limits on this one, but am excited.

what do YOU have in the hopper?

Did a summer saison with spelt on Sunday.  After I get back from vacation, I'll be making more lambic wort.  I picked up about 20 pounds total of raw grain at the health food store for these batches.
Please do not reply if your an evil alien!
Thanks

Going to finish bottling the last 2 batches of my single-hopped beers tonight. Racking my strawberry mead off the second dose of strawberries into a tertiary to start clarifying this weekend. Then on Tuesday brewing a batch that will be split into a saison and a lambic.

No brewing this weekend. Heading out to Mammoth Lakes to go camping with my bro. Bring a 2.5 gallon keg of my IPA to keep us company. :0) Works out since my fermentation fridge currently has a Double DBA clone and Saison fermenting away in it.

Nothing.  My fermentation chambers are at max capacity.  I'm considering to the nanomashing experiment from the May/June 2013 edition of Zymurgy.

Autumn?  We need to make it through August first.
I am wrangling judges and stewards to judge the commercial beers at Wazoo Saturday night.  That's the fundraiser beer festival at the Lowry Park Zoo in Tampa.
I hope to brew an IPA Sunday.  It's been so long since I brewed I may need retraining.

Sure feels like it, we've had some pretty cool weather in Iowa this week. I love it!

I'm not brewing this weekend, have a family reunion. Brewed the last 3 weekends in a row, but I think I'll brew again next weekend. Schwarzbier, I believe it will be. Kegging a dunkel tonight though.
Watch out for those Cross Dressing Amateurs!
