Nothing brewing this weekend, but my Belgian Quad is done fermenting. So, tomorrow after work, I'm going to caramelize raisins, dried cherries, prunes, and dates and rack it onto them for about a week before kegging.

I need to get another sour beer or two brewed but I have too much work work and house work to get done on the weekends to have time for a brew day. My fermentation chamber is currently full of beer being lagered so I have more than enough beer on hand to drink for a while.
Heck yeah I blog about homebrewing: Brain Sparging on Brewing

Brewed yesterday.  10 gal. of wort split 4 ways with different sugars in each to evaluate flavor for an article for NW Brewing News.  Also have a week old IPA fermenting away.  Today, bottling a BGSA with matsutake mushrooms and kegging and alt.  All of that assumes I don't get an email from my editor telling me he needs something right away.

Will brew tomorrow, two batches with no sparge on each one. Brewed two batches on Sunday with single batch sparges, and I think I can shave a little time on the day by adding more grain and no sparging.

Club brewday tomorrow and brewing on Sunday. I kicked all of my kegs over the last week, so I need to get busy. I see a double brewday in my future.

I am planning on brewing an IPA with all New Zealand hops (Waimea, Wai-iti, and Kohatu). This will be the first time I've used those hops.

I don't quite have the hop schedule figured out yet. I'm leaning toward: 1.5 oz clean bittering hop, 1 oz each NZ hops at 10, 1 oz each of NZ hops at flameout, 2 oz each Kohatu and Wai-iti for dry hop.

I also plan on making a starter for the Off The Topper recipe from Northern Brewer.
Primary: Wingfoot v.3.0 (Waimea/Pacifica), Chinook IPA
Bottled/Kegged: Best Bitter
On Deck: BVIP, Swiss Czechtoberfest

I was planning to brew a Fullers 1845 style beer and discovered I don't have the amber malt I need. So it'll be an ESB with the starter I've got ready -- too far to the LHBS for just a couple of pounds of grain.
It's such a fine line between stupid and clever.

Finally brewing an ESB I've had planned for a couple of weeks now -- EKGs have been tough to come by around here.
