This weekend I am supposed to help judge for the Bluebonnet but I also wanted to get a rye porter in the fermentor. It's a brew for a blending project next year but I need to get it out of the way so I can start brewing up my late spring/summer drinking. If I burn through enough work this week I might work from home Friday and brew.

This weekend I'm planning to brew 10 gallons of Summit Amarillo Citra IPA.  It's been +2 months since I last brewed so it will be good to get some more beer going!

I have my Christmas Vacation Ale lined up fir tomorrow. I got a request to have it on tap for the annual Fourth of July Party.... Why the hell not.. Christmas in July! It's the second time brewing this beer. I've made a handful of adjustments on the quantity of spices, vanilla and cherries in this beer. I'm also going from WLP 001 to WLP 002 thus time around. Hopefully after thus time around, I can really fine tube it for Christmas.

Georgia Ice Cream Ale with white speckled grits from Nora Mill Granary. It'll be the first cereal mash I've done in seven years.

German pils using New Zealand hops...got to think of a clever Middle Earth name for it, like Underpils....

What was your hopping schedule like? I imagine that it would be easy to overshoot with Nelson and turn a Pils into an APA. Not that this is a bad thing - the winy notes from the Pils malt would pair very nicely with Nelson, I'd imagine.

A Ballantine IPA clone. Made one a while back that was so good. Vintage American ingredients make for a great IPA. I remember it had 6 row, flaked maize, C80, and hops were Bullion, Cluster, EKG in the finish. This time I have Brewers Gold to work into the mix and dry hop with.

Nice. That sounds pretty interesting. More so in a year probably.

Just realized I said apricots but meant mangos. Maybe I'll blend the two.

Denny's Rye IPA.  This will be batch #3, and I'll be bottling batch #2 while drinking batch #1, which I think came out delicious.  I can already see that the main problem with homebrewing is that you can't make it fast enough.

Very cool; sounds really interesting.
I vote all mango.

Nothing going here.  Need to clean a couple carboys. ::)

Bottling my saison for NHC.

And performing some "quality checks" on a couple batches that are already bottled.  Need to be sure the carbonation and clarity are up to par.
