Good luck, Drew!  My godson is coming down from Seattle to see what brewing's all about.  Gonna do Rye IPA.

ballanine ipa and something sour.  Got my east coast yeast slurries in the mail last week (old newark and a couple bugfarm IV's)

Need to rack a biere de garde and start lagering, but it's taking forever.  Also need to rack my standard cider and make a new england style cider to pitch on the yeast.

Sooper busy weekend though.  I don't know how I am going to fit it all in.

I am planning to brew a Mc Chouffe clone if anyone will give me some input on my recipe post.  :P

I just got my new 14 gallon conical fermentor and I HAVE to put something in it.

Also, Saturday is the group apple pressing so I will be getting 5 gallons of juice to make cider.

Ryang, is that supposed to be Balantine IPA? If so, have you made it before? I've been wanting to do as close to a clone as I can and have been researching a recipe for a while... you got a recipe you're willing to share?! thx,

My wife's off to visit her mother this weekend so I'm going a bit nuts: bottling a DIPA, brewing a rye stout, an APA, and possibly a bitter. That's all if our recently adopted kittens don't distract me too much. Am I crazy for naming one Fuggles?
It's such a fine line between stupid and clever.

I have the apartment to myself all weekend so I am brewing at least once. Haven't put my finger on what I'm brewing yet. I tried Full Sail Wassail this week and was surprised by how much I liked it, so I could go in that direction. Could also roast some local pumpkin, toast some oats. whatever... I guess I'm in an autumn state of mind. :-)

whoops, yeah kinda missed the t on that one. 

I haven't made one before, but by many accounts, this http://www.brewboard.com/index.php?showtopic=3436&hl=ballantine%20ipa&st=0 recipe is rather close.  There is a lot of history on Ballantine out there and you can find a fair number of "clone" recipes, but in the end, who really knows?  More of an attempt at an emulation.

That is a project on my hit list for next year so I'll be interested in your design assuming it's what I think it is.  ;)

No brewing for me this weekend - but it's Cleveland Beer Week, so there's plenty to do.  I'll be judging at our club's contest tomorrow and Saturday: http://www.beersnobs.org/contest/
...it's liquid bread, it's good for you!
