Just brewed a Nut Brown Ale today and then bottled an Oatmeal Stout, my first partial mash brew.

First lager for me today. A dunkel. All was well until I started to chill. My water hose was frozen. Duh!

that happened to me on my last brew. Had to lug the thing down to the basement to thaw then back up to the yard.

Finally got the next episode of the podcast edited, so I have some time to brew.  Fri. I'll be bottling the Golden Shroomy I brewed recently.  Sat. plan to brew an alt.  Sometime next week a Rye IPA on the Zymatic..

Curious to hear how the Golden Shroomy turned out.  Which shrooms did you add to this one again?

Ha! Tis the season.  Just happened to me too last week when I went to chill down a vienna lager I brewed.  Damn immersion chiller had some leftover water that froze in the lines clogging everything up!

That sounds like a blast!

I have a stout planned for St. Pat's day. I think I'll call it "snowmageddon stout"…

Might try and get an AG batch in too, if I have time.

making 12 gallons of wine this weekend sine the wine kits were 40% off.

I have a couple options for beer with slurry of wlp029, wlp090, wlp830, and wlp833- not sure yet which one and if I will fit it in this weekend.

Edit: couldn't resist a brew...went with bopils with step mash. 95% 50/50 weyermann floor malted pils and Avangard pils, 5% carahell.
Hit 5.35 ph and 145F for beta rest for 30min, then bump to 5.47ph  and 159F for 45 minutes for alpha rest. Dropping with lactic in kettle for preboil PH of 5.1

debating... have a good slurry of 830 from a helles kegged last weekend.

thinking either Vienna (traditional or hoppier like a boston lager) or a dortmunder.

Tomorrow I'm going to brew a Northern English Brown Ale, using a mish-mash of some pretty old grains and hops, but based on the 2011 NHC Gold recipe for that style.  Unfortunately I didn't realize how critical adding some Special Roast is to nailing the style until after I returned from my LHBS, so won't be using any.  Still there's potential here (9 different malts), and it'll be a simple brew session using Mangrove Jacks Burton Union dry yeast.

I was jonesing to use some brown malt that I've had on hand, and this is what I decided to make, although it ends up being only 1 lb of brown malt out of 23 lbs total grist (11 gal batch).
