Brewed the Dry Irish ~ a month ago. Gonna brew a Foreign Export Stout tomorrow, ~ 1.068 ish, split, half as is, the other half with coffee and/or cocoa nibs  OR  bourbon soaked oak chips. Gotta decide. Coffee/nibs or oak chips will be added in keg, pulled when they're where I want.

Kegged 1/2 of a recent 10Gal APA brew last night - (split batch) The WLP090 carboy was done 3 days ahead of the WLP001 (then 5 day dry hop). I hope the 001 is ready to keg this weekend.

There should be a quote button if you're on a PC. If you're using tapatalk, a long press and hold on the post you want should lead you to the option to quote.

Regarding the Märzen suggestion, we had a thread on this not too long ago with some good ideas:

I brewed 5 gallons on barly wine. This is a recipe I used to brew every year, up until 2006 (last time I brewed it.) But I ended up drinking them so slow I decided to stop brewing it. I just don't drink a lot of Barly wines. I like them, when the mood strikes. But I guess I'd rather drink a whiskey. I finally drank the next to the last one right before Christmas. So since I only have 1 left I decided top start up the tradition again.

Next week I'm brewing 10 gallons of Helles.

I'm working on a special/best/premium bitter. Trying out First Gold hops for the first time. Anybody use those before?
Think I'll call it Most Premium Bitter.

What else is going on out there?

I Love First Gold. Nice fruitiness and a lot golding spiciness. My best results came with a big addition in the 20-15 min range.

Otherwise, I am brewing a Landbier. Pils, Munich, and a touch of caramunich I. Haven't decided on the hops yet. 833 for the yeast. I believe this to have been the 2nd best beer I have brewed in the past. Looking forward to seeing what the adjustments this time make.
Magnum for bittering and Hallertau Mittlefruh worked well for the one I did last year. That one was yummy, and you can start drinking it on the young side as it makes a nice Kellerbier.

To be on topic, no brewing this weekend, but a lot of cellar work. Next weekend Mrs. R is out of town, it will be warmer, and I want to do my Special American Lager and a Ballantine IPA clone.

Same here.  I've brewed 9 batches so far this year, so I'm going to be kegging a batch, cold crashing another, etc.  I hope to brew an RIS next weekend and then chill for a while and wait for a few kegs to be emptied before cranking it back up.

Brewing a Hefe tomorrow that I call Clove Grove Hefeweizen and bottling my Irish Red Head in the morning. It's friction cold here in Colorado Springs. I like brewing in the winter time cause the ground water going through my immersion chiller is so cold.

Cellar work here myself. Gotta bottle two entries for NHC and make rom in a keg for the last one. I am jealous of you guys with 5-10 kegs. It's hard to work with two.

Also still need to taste some sours and decide what I want to do with them. Thankfully they are a patient bunch.
