 I am going to try my hand at an APA with a Belgian yeast.  I am still looking for a good recipe.

I'm making a special Bitter with the Bedford ale yeast... what's really cool is that this is my first batch since my daughter was born, 2 months ago!

Savor every moment!  They grow up soooo fast!  Being a dad is the best thing in the world. Beer brewing will always be there.  Your darling daughter will be going off to college in no time.

Great photo!

BVIP to the secondary with vanilla beans.  Making a starter for an O-fest whose slurry will be used for Ron's and my Doppelbock in December. 8)

I'm brewing Oatmeal Cookie Ale from Randy Mosher's "Radical Brewing" today. Toasting the oats as I write:

3 gal. batch – Christmas 2010 release
Looking for OG 1.056, FG 1.012, 5.5 ABV, 22 IBU

Ingredients:
4# Maris Otter Pale Ale Malt [64%]
1# Oats Raw (Toasted) [16%]
10 oz. English Brown Malt [10%]
10 oz. Dark Brown Sugar [10%]
0.25 oz Northern Brewer (9.8%) - added during boil, boiled 90.0 min
0.5 oz East Kent Goldings (5.0%) - added during boil, boiled 15.0 min
1  White Labs WLP006 Bedford British Ale
0.25 cup Raisins - added post boil
0.05 tsp Vanilla (extract) - added dry to secondary fermenter
0.75 tsp Cinnamon (ground) - added dry to secondary fermenter

Mash-in-a-Bag:
00:24:49 Mash in - Liquor: 1.41 gal; Strike: 172.87 °F; Target: 157.0 °F
01:09:49 Sacch Rest - Rest: 45 min; Final: 157 °F
01:10:49 Mash-Out Infusion - Liquor: 1.27 gal; Temperature: 196.6 °F; Target: 170 °F

Notes:
  • • Based on Randy Mosher's recipe in "Radical Brewing" page 93 and 149
  • • Toast the raw oats in the oven at 300ºF (for around +/- an hour) until it becomes golden brown and smells like cookies.
  • • Use boil-in-a-bag method for grist and oatmeal mash
  • • Add raisins to post kettle boil to soften and plump
  • • Light carbonation. 48 g of candi sugar for priming

Bottled a batch of BVIP yesterday.  No brewing this weekend.  I'm administering a BJCP exam on Sat. and I've got 4 batches fermenting to deal with on Sun.
Life begins at 60.....1.060, that is!

Doing a Longbrook IPA from the recipe wiki because I wanted an IPA ready in time for Thanksgiving. Then I'll be watching the Bears cream the Vikings.

I was thinking about doing a cherry stout, seeing as how winter has set in and I don't have anything but lighter summer beers right now  :-[    Then after reading everybody's replies about brewing something hoppy and remembering my large supply of homegrown hops...maybe I should also throw in an IPA or a hoppy Pale Ale, there's just too many choices and not enough time. 
Homebrewing isn't my obsession, it's my life calling, there's a difference.

Do a hoppy American Stout - solves both problems :)

Allow me to correct your typo: "Then I'll be watching the Vikings cream the Bears."   ;D

Dolphins cream the Thumbtacks.  Pennington is starting at QB.

> edit - a day later <

They're having creamed Thumbtacks for dinner in Miami tonight.

Next up Bears on Thursday night.

I think I'll do some sort of Gumballhead hoppy wheat beer tomorrow and keg my rye IPA.
I'd really just rather be brewing in sunny Carlsbad New Mexico

Today I brewed McDole's APA. I'm planning to bottle a batch of winter warmer Sunday.
