What's Brewing This Weekend - 7/23 Edition
« on: July 21, 2010, 09:14:33 AM »
With one Saison in the tank and suddenly appreciably cooler weather here in LA (thank you baby jebus) - what's a brewer to do?

I'm going to be teaching a brewing class, that's what and I'll be making a Scottish Saison. Ha!

You?

I think it's a big stout this weekend, but I might have to do 2 brews......Football season is rapidly approaching.  :o

Doing Waiting for Columbus IPA using Denny's Favorite.  This will be my first American IPA this year.  What the heck's wrong with me! :o

either a BDSA or a BW...i just can't decide...i guess it'll depend on whether or not i make a starter tonight out of some abbey II or if i am lazy and just rely on ol' S-05 for the BW
Take it easy...

I was planning on doing a Belgian IPA until I noticed that smack pack of 3522 I had was a year and a half old.  It's likely my starter won't be ready in time for that.  In addition, it's gonna be in the mid 90s this weekend and I've got beer left over from my wife's birthday party last weekend, so the motivation factor is low.

Scottish Saison?  Brogue with a French accent?  Imagine that.....

Nothing brewing this weekend.  Was planning on doing Denny's Rye IPA but the kid's coming any time now so decided to take the weekend off.

I'm so jealous of those who have a break in the heat.  Here in NJ I'm looking at 100+ weather.  Even the basement is pushing 80 these days.  I'll be brewing an Oktoberfest to be lagered in my new fermentation cabinet (thank you wortomatic.com!) 

And I'll be using the new technique of boiling the first gallon or so of runnings for extra caramelization/maillard action, thanks to the recipe in the AHA big brew.  That recipe turned out wonderful, no chance it'll last through to October.

Drew,
Please educate me.  What is a "Scottish Saison?"

You could call it Auld Alliance, after the Franco-Scottish alliance of the late middle ages. I knew that history degree would pay off someday :D
