Brewed an Amber today and brewing an American Brown on Sunday.  Busy weekend, but it will be good to have some homebrew ready when I get back from vacation.

back to back 12gal batches on Saturday morning - DC Rye IPA and House IPA.

Yes, that's right Denny, Rye IPA - figure its time to give it a whirl again after about ~4 years.

Wow....if I don't make it every 4 weeks or so, I get in trouble!

The Irish Red Ale is ready to keg (Sunday).  Should be some good yeast for an Oatmeal Stout (Monday).  Going to toast the oatmeal for a little twist.  Cheers!!!
If Homebrew & BBQ aren't the answer, then you're askin' the wrong questions... Cheers!!!

Took an extra day for both family time and various errands. Replenishing propane in tank, picking up ingredients for something TBD (the store opens at noon, I'll have figured it out by then), and on Monday morning plan to have my first-ever outdoor brew session, using my yet-unused Bayou Classic SP10 and my brand-new happy-birthday-to-me brew pot.

A Harvest Kolsch.  Not much in commen with a true Kolsch except the yeast and the grain bill.  I'm using my homegrown hops as late hop additions to boost the hop aroma and flavor.

Oh yeah, I'm also bumping it up to 7 gallons, adding some Saaz in the mashtun and draining 2 gallons after 15 minutes in the kettle.  The plan is to sour it with lactic acid for a Berlinner Weisse-like beer.

That is, if Earl leaves us relatively un-scathed (knocking on wood).

That's about how it is with my regular house IPA, though 8 weeks instead of 4 due to batch size  ;) :D - giving the rye IPA another chance - haven't liked many rye beers I've had, so I'm giving this one another chance.

Will let you know how it goes.

Mango Wheat Beer on my Brutus 10. However, it's 105 today. I went to the Home Beer Wine Making Shop in Woodland Hills CA where is was a whopping 113 degreees! That's too hot. I hope it's not that hot in a couple days.
I also need to brew something for Halloween.

My wife and I are heading to Hunter, NY to see my cousins. One cousin flew there to stay for the week before they both go off to Scotland. I'm bringing two six-packs of assorted homebrew (Bourbon Oak Strong Ale, Tongue Splitter, X9-A, Alte Strasse, Smythicks and Craft Beer Wheat) plus a loaf of homemade whole wheat bread as a host gift.  We're looking forward to cool mountain air. 
I hope to check out any brewpubs in the area too.

Seems like every once in a while I run across someone who just doesn't like rye beers.  Not a big deal....you know how I feel about wheat beers!

Debating...  I need to brew something to serve at my kids 6th b-day party - (and no, not for the kids obviously ;).  I'm thinking something like an ESB or a smaller belgain.  Any sugesstions?  I don't want to go too big to scare anyone away but then again I want something with flavor to introduce good beer to some folks.
ESB or a straightforward pale ale would probably be good.

And why not make something for the kids?  Soda is really easy to make, especially if you have a keg.


That's a great idea - I think I will make a little soda - thanks!

Brewing an English IPA Sunday. Grains are crushed. Hops are measured. Starter crashing in the fridge.  :)
In a humble log cabin off an unregarded back road, somewhere, deep in the heart of Pennsylvania’s hill country, we find our intrepid hero — the Brush Valley Brewer.

American Brown brewed yesterday with minimal hiccups.  10+ gallons in my fermenters sitting tight at 66-67F.  Split yeasts and fermenting 1/2 with WLP001 and 1/2 with WLP007.

Oktoberfest carbonating now.
Cheers,

Timmy
