I'm jealous.  Not enough time nor space at this point.  Brewed 20 gallons last weekend, though!

Might brew this weekend but more likely mash Monday night, brew Tuesday morning. Have not brewed since September, due to a heavy work/school schedule. I'm hoping to brew at least two times before late January.

Today might have been my last one for this year, I'll have to see if I get motivated to brew a batch at home in the next 12 days.  I'll have to check my malt on hand too :)

I'm going to brew up something this weekend. I might even do two batches.
Sunday they are calling a high of 70 that might not happen again for quite a while.

Today is most likely my last brewday of the year. Looking forward to some much needed R & R.

I going to try and get in a APA and BW before the New Year. Then I'm going to focus on some lagers and Belgians.

I'll be brewing this weekend since they are forecasting 65 degrees.  I'll probably brew one more time between xmas and new years.

I got all geared up to brew and then turned the water to the brewery back on after our recent freezing spell.  Looks like I'm gonna have to be a plumber before I can be a brewer.

I hate when that happens!  Good luck Denny!  I may fit one more in the weekend after Christmas.  That will be the beginning of my Lambic experiment.

Yeesh Denny.  Frozen pipes are bad but digging them up is the worst!!  :( I wouldn't wish that on anyone.

I have a few planned during the holidays...little late on that Saison Noel, a Celebration, a Baltic, looking for a good American Brown recipe.....

Cheers to the end of the year Brewing.

That blows! I had two water freeze sitchiations during out several week freeze. All good now due to aluminum bubble wrap and spray Styrofoam.

I decided to prep yesterday. Brewing today. Great brew day! Discovered BN brew strong on my smart phone. Learning laughing brewing drinking. Quadfecta

My garage is plumbed with PEX and has a water shutoff and drain valve.  All of that survived fine, but a barb to thread adapter cracked right down the middle of the threads.

I hope to get two more in before the end. That will make it 39 batches for the year. A touch over 8000 gallons. ;)

Looks like I will be able to get one last session in late next week. Gonna take advantage of cooler fermentation temps and go for my first Kolsch. Will be using Magnum for bittering and American hops for late additions so it won't be very traditional...
