Brewing a pilsner tomorrow.  I haven't decided German or Bohemian yet.  I just got a pound each of 2014 crop Saaz and Mittelfruh, so I can go either way.  Starters of WLP833 Ayinger and WLP940 Mexican Lager are going good right now. First time using WLP940, and as White Labs says, "This is one of the best lager strains in the White Labs yeast bank; try it with any lager," I'm looking forward to it.

I'll be judging homebrew all day tomorrow for Best Florida Beer Competition.  As a matter of fact I judged the BFBC pro comp last Saturday and signed up for more judging the next two Saturdays.  Then its Tampa Bay Beer Week.  Busy around here.
Sunday I am smoking 200 pounds of malt over peach wood for a local brew pub.  It will be a smoked pumpkin peach ale, peach-wood aged.  Brewed the hard way, I guess.

No brewing this weekend, but I will be moving my last 2 batches from upstairs (to carb in bottles) to the basement for some cold storage (special bitter) and lager in (Bock Me traditional Bock.) Next weekend, I am planning to brew up Bluesman's Ringler Pilsner and if I have the gumption, another pilsner same day or the next

Was planning to brew Subday, but I'll be pushing that back to Monday due to polar vortex lol. I'll be brewing a session IPA with an OG of 1.047, 80% Pilsner malt and 20% Munich malt. I'll be doing a 90 minute boil and will hop with a 2:1 ratio of Azzaca and Mosiac with 1 oz total at first wort, 5 oz total at flameout, and 5 oz total to dry hop. I'll be fermenting with WLP 001. Nothing fancy, but this will be my first session IPA.

My plan to push back the brew day might have back fired... Gonna kick Monday's brew day off at -10 degrees. The torpedo heater will be utilized in full force!

Yeah, the weather has turned brutal.  Arse freezing cold. I would normally say enjoy the brewday, but maybe 'protect the extremities' is a little better. Weather like that demands a hot scotchy.  ;)

Thanks for the reminder. I used the last of the scotch last brew... It was about 4 degrees that day too. Off to the liquor store!

NB sent me crushed grain vs the unmilled I ordered. They are making restitution so I have a great chance to do an experiment with their vs my crush using the same recipe.

Tomorrow's my birthday and I had planned to brew like usual.  But I got asked by a local brewery to help out with their zwickelmania event (http://oregoncraftbeer.org/events/zwickelmania/).  That could lead to a consulting gig, so I'm doing that instead of brewing.

Congrats on the gig. How'd it go? BTW...Happy B'day!
