Nothing this weekend.  The Doppelbock/Bock Partigyle from last weekend is fermenting right now @ 50F. It was a long brew day between the Partigyle, modified double decoction, long boils & etc...  13 hours start to finish. The Doppelbock OG was 1.100 and the Bock was 1.076. The grain bill totaled 33 lbs. for two five gallon batches. Every once in a while I get a wild hair...  This one really kicked my tail. Cheers!!!

holy crap - helluva brewday!  nice job.
Thanks Paul.  The wort smelled & tasted like nothing I've ever made, in a good way. Boiling 2 gallons down to 2 quarts & adding a quart to each made a huge difference as well. Down side is the Doppelbock probably won't be ready until Christmas 2011. This one will definitely get bottled...  Cheers!!!
If Homebrew & BBQ aren't the answer, then you're askin' the wrong questions... Cheers!!!

Don't think I'm brewing.  Plan to keg an Imperial stout and a IIPA.  Gotta have something on tap for the long haul (winter months, that is).

I'm putting together a Christmas cream soda based on Sean Paxton's recipe at http://www.homebrewchef.com/recipes.html. I'm adding some fresh clementine rind and not using the chai tea.

Bunping up a starter of 1028 for a batch of Sister Star of the Sun.  Haven't made this one in a few years, time to revisit.

Will brew it on Sunday or Monday depending on the yeast.

Nothing brewing, but Saturday evening I am taking my wife and son to Kilauea Lodge for dinner and then over to Hawaii Volcanoes Nation Park to see a special Christmas concert by HAPA at the Kilauea Military Camp theater.  

If you are into contemporary Hawaiian music HAPA is about as good as it gets.  Barry Flanagan is an amazing guitarist.  The KMC theater is a small venue and a great place to go for Hawaiian music concerts.  The park is at about 4000 ft. so winter evenings get down into the low 40s - high 30s.  

Woo hoo!  - Mele Kalikimaka!

Do the islanders freeze to the ground where they're standing?  I didn't think you guys owned the proper attire to deal with those temperatures.

Living in Wisconsin, that means you are installing a new front door?  :D
