Tomorrow's my birthday.

Happy Birthday. Is it true that with great age comes great wisdom?

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!

Blonde ale yesterday.  Session IPA in the mash tun right now..... based on this one: https://www.homebrewersassociation.org/forum/index.php?topic=11610.0

Different grainbill that I have been using for session beers, but same hop schedule.

Brewed up 10 gallons of Bohemian pilsner yesterday, cleaning out some leftovers while using new 2014 crop Czech Saaz.
 
OG 1.052
 
18 lbs. Best pilsner malt (last of a bag)
1 lb. crystal 10°
1 lb. MFB special aromatic (the last of that, too)
 
Mashed at 152°F for 90 min.
 
4 oz. Saaz 3.1% FWH
2 oz. Clusters 8% 60 min
4 oz. Saaz knockout
 
Boil for 90 min.
 
Split batch between WLP940 Mexican Lager and WLP833 German Bock.  Both chugging along nicely at 50°F this morning.

Then, that evening, after a delicious supper of goat shoulder roast braised in red chile sauce (made from toasted Guajillo, Ancho, Mulatto, Cascabel, and New Mexican Red chiles), I went to the homebrew club meeting where we filled two 30 gallon bourbon barrels from a nearby distillery with 1.090 doppelbock.

Just brewed four of five wedding beers with some of my old club members. Two buddies brewed one beer each and my other buddy and I brewed a double batch. It was a long day.

I need to grow a starter of WY1214 to keep fresh yeast on hand. Not very exciting.

Not going to brew, but just ordered an 8 gallon whiskey barrel and I need to get some parts to complete the new conical fermenter.  Also need to dig through and arrange the "cellar" and finalize the plan for NHC entries. Always beer chores to do. Last night the SO wanted me out of the house for few minutes so she says to me, "Why don't you go look at your beer?" I got a chuckle out of that.

I'm thinking Rye IPA.  It requires internet access when you brew, so I won't be able to use it in my garage.
