Thanks, guys.  Our great vet is coming out for a house call in a couple hours, and we'll say goodbye to our lovely Border Collie, Mabel.  15 1/2 years old, and the happiest, most loving dog I've ever known.

I hope to do the Rye IPA that I couldn't get to last weekend.

That must be because I stole your mojo.  I brewed the Rye IPA last weekend.

I wish that was the reason....I was caring for a dying dog.... :'(

Sorry about that, but glad that the dog had you caring for him/her at the end of life.

Not sure what I'm making, but I am brewing on Friday.  I have lots of Munich and Pale Ale malt on hand.  Maybe a pound or two of pilsner.  Any ideas?

All Munich AIPA!

That's an interesting idea!  I definitely have enough grain for it.

So sorry to hear that Denny.

It's one of my favorite ways to make an IPA.  The maltiness of the Munich can really handle a load of pungent American hops.  Maybe try Columbus for bittering and Amarillo or Simcoe for the later additions.

I am not sure what I'm brewing yet... partly depends on what yeasts are available when I get to the LHBS either tonight or tomorrow night. I'd like to try Denny's Rye IPA, but I will take a couple of recipes and see what happens next.

Thanks for the reminder!  I devised a "Happy Dog Pale Ale" recipe in her honor years ago.  I'll have to try to dig that recipe up.

I've done a Munich/Pils combo IPA before and it was quite tasty.  I say go for it.  On another note, sorry to hear about your beloved puppy, Denny.  We've got four and three of them are reaching geriatric stage.  I will be brewing a 10 gallon Helles this weekend and I'm going to use some Sinamar on half of it to experiment with it's coloring abilities.

Thinking of doing the "back to basics challenge"--few definite rules, except that you're not allowed to use any dedicated brewing equipment, only stuff you would already have around your house if you weren't a homebrewer.  It'll be a 2 gallon back of amber ale, probably mashed and fermented in a 2 gallon gott cooler.

I'm still on the fence about it, though.  It sounds fun, but I don't want to make crappy beer.  Crappy beer is not fun.

Doing a Southern English Brown.  My guitar teacher just told me that he'd trade lessons for beer......Which is nice.  It'll make me brew some styles that I normally wouldn't!

Brewing a BoPils on Monday.

Well, guess not.  Forced change of plans.  Brewed up the starter on Wed.  Two days later no activity whatsoever.  This pack of yeast was in a shipment that accidentally sat for an extra day before I got to open it and put it in the fridge but I figured it would still be okay.  Nope.  Which sucks because there were four other packs in that shipment.

Confirmed with the refractometer that the gravity hadn't dropped a single point.  So I smacked the second pack of this yeast (one of the other four) I had early this morning.  Six hours later there was very minor swelling, mostly due to temp increase I'm assuming since I don't think there's anything alive in there.  Pitched that into the starter wort and still nothing.

Sooo, the only yeast I  have that wasn't part of that shipment is a Trappist High Gravity.  Brewed up the starter for that tonight and hopefully it'll be ready by Monday evening.  Guess I'm moving the strong golden ale up in the schedule.

Anyone want to buy a couple packs of dead yeast?  I hear it's great on toast.
