I am brewing a coffee, Oatmeal chocolate stout.  Going to try my new Charcoal filtered water and using a bot of Kona coffee in the wort.  Looking forward to this one, cant wait.
Brewing is all I ever think about!

Doing your standard oat  meal stout. Just in time for the coming winter/fall season.

I am going to brew a Czech pilsner this weekend. I will have it fermenting in the chest freezer while I am on vacation for three weeks, so it will be ready to keg and lager when I get back.

10 gallons. Split it between WLP800 Pilsner (PU) and WLP833 German Bock (Ayinger) yeast.

Brewed a pale and a cream porter on the 8th. First time in 2 1/2 years to do a stout or use 1056. I also skipped the stir plates and went with oxygenation instead. Both starters had a big pile of fresh smelling yeast in 12 hours. This morning I had to clean an airlock. 6 gallons in a 9 gallon speidel and the pale still blew the airlock cap off. Only 1.050 and running it at 62º. Crazy!

Had to push this weekend's brews 3x: once due to being out of town unexpectedly to see the Foo Fighters at Wrigley with back stage and VIP access(huge thanks to my BIL who works personal security for the Foos), and twice because life gets in the way(or I can be lazy.) This weekend I am brewing 2 versions of Märzen a little late for the season but it will still taste great, and using the fast lager method, I can still enjoy them in October. The first version is just straight out of BCS(it was a fan favorite when I made it last year) and the second is a version suggested last year when I was talking about making last year's Märzen: all base, no Caramunich to reduce the overly sweet result I had last year( as I said, it was a crowd favorite, but I knew it was too sweet) Targeting 1.056 for both 5 gallon batches, and have 4 separate 1.5L starters going(in order to utilize Mark's shaken not stirred starter method. Each batch will get 3L tomorrow afternoon). After some suggestions here about the effectiveness of WLP820 (and my experience with it last year) I have switched out to WLP833 WLP830 for this year's batches. This will be my first double brew day, so I have everything I can all measured out already, just need to mill my grists when I get home this evening, and then an early start tomorrow morning. Have a great weekend all!

edit because sometimes I type(poorly) faster than I think

Think you will be pleased with 833 frank. I've got two batches of O'fest right now, and using cake to make Munich dunkel tomorrow. If you keep it cool ( 49-50f) it will take day or two longer to hit 60-65% attenuation. Mine have been around day 6

Exactly, did not mind putting off brewing to see Urge Overkill, Naked Raygun, Cheap trick, and The Foo Fighters! Found out on Thursday that he could get us in on Saturday night: brewing post-poned last minute

Thanks John and Blatz. It was a blast. First time I had ever seen any of them, and it turns out, the openers are all from Chicago. Who knew?

Yes I did Ken, as soon as I saw your initial reply, I realized my error. I hope the 830 turns out a great Fest beer, been loving it in my Pilsner and it was suggested here by I think dmtaylor for Fest styles as well as most German lagers
