SWMBO's out of town, so I'm playing single dad all weekend.  Does that mean I'll be brewing a lot, or not at all?  ;D

Based on personal experience, not at all. Of course YMMV.
Oh, it's a "not at all".  I might finally make that mead I've been putting off, that's easier to do once the kids are in bed (and before I need to go to bed).

10 more gals of Dean Larson's Christmas Tree Ale.   ;D 

That's on my radar to get brewed soon, but this weekend I'm gonna try to get in the BVIP I didn't do last weekend.

Nice. I wanted to make sure I was ready for the holidays this year! 'Tis the season for a world class IPA!  :)

Since I didn't get to the double batch of IPA last weekend, I'm going to do a single batch of double IPA this weekend. ;D

Hopefully nothing else comes up this weekend to bump the batch again otherwise this one could get to be a doozy  ;)

IPA was going to be 1.066, the DIPA will be 1.096, so if that doesn't happen we're looking at a 1.126 very hoppy barleywine I guess. ;)

6-gal Zinfandel, 6-gal Muscatel and 6-gal Pyment (using a mix of these 2 grapes) - one of the large grocery stores in our area had fresh wine grape juice this past week.

Beautiful sunny Fall day yesterday (Temps in the high 70's-low 80's).  Brewed an American Amber out on the patio.  Used Citra and Bravo hops.  First time for Bravo hops, so I'll be interested to see how this turns out.

It was a much shorter brew day this time around (about 5.5-6 hours).  I reset the mill gap on my Barley Crusher back to its original position--efficiency didn't suffer much, but the lauter went so much better this time around (in contrast to my "lauter from hell" with my American Wheat a few months ago that made my brew day last until 3:30 a.m.)

My 26 yr old daughter is pregnant and will be delivering in 4 months. I thought I would start an American Light Lager to help celebrate the birth of my grandson. By the way she is a BMC drinker and I thought I would brew one she would enjoy for sure after her 9 month sobriety.
I wasn't even in town that day, I swear.
