Pecan Smoked Maple Wee Heavy?????  Dude, you are sick....;)

No brewing for me for the next couple weeks....I'm on a 7 day a week work schedule for holiday shows.
Life begins at 60.....1.060, that is!

Must be a smokin' weekend coming up.  I have a Smoked Robust Porter on the drawing board.  Mash in at 8:00AM Saturday.  I smoked 5 lbs. of Golden Promise with Alder Wood a couple weeks ago.  Only doing a 5 gallon batch 'cause it's sort of an experiment.  1st time smoking my own.
If Homebrew & BBQ aren't the answer, then you're askin' the wrong questions... Cheers!!!

Must be.. I'm trying to get another entry ready for the upcoming Doug King Memorial Competition. This year we're adding a custom smoked malt category for people to enter. Entries due Jan 9th! :)

I'm brewing my very 1st beer ever tonight. a Honey Blonde.  Yes, it's just a kit I got from Austin Homebrew's website, but man am I excited.  I helped a friend with a Pumpkin Ale last week to help get my beginner's bearings all straight.
I'll start my next one after I've transferred this to the secondary.  I'm really excited about my next one, which will be a bigger beer, but thought a honey blonde would be a nice start.
It is natural for me to not really be concerned about work today since I'm so antsy right?  ;)

Oh you betcha! When I get the bug going, all I can hear is the buzzing.

And congrats on getting your first brew together!

thanks! my girlfriend got the equipment for me as an early christmas present...she doesn't drink beer  :-[, but at least she knows that I like good beer.
Though I already have a kegerator and a single corny, I've decided to bottle my first batch just so I know the time it takes and the method.  Pay a little respect to those who came before me that didn't have all this technology of homebrew in kegs.

I'll be ready to post in "what's brewin' for the week of 12/13.

We are going to be brewing two batches on Saturday.  My wife will be making an Oatmeal Stout and I will be making a Red Ale.  The hops for the Red Ale will be Northern Brewer for bittering, Galaxy for flavor, and Nelson Sauvin for aroma.

Nuthin' doin' this week after last. Trying now to decide what to brew for next year's TN Brewfest. Thinking of a whole series of Classic Clones but still mulling.

In the mean time, pondering the Tommyknocker Imperial Nut Brown for an acquaintance who goes bonkers over their product. The recipe calls for maple syrup, but not sure which kind to use.  ???

Drew, what are you using in that Wee Heavy? 
Just brew it...

Haven't completely decided... definitely some MO, some mid grade English Crystal, maybe some pale chocolate and then to give the smoke kick a dose of my friend Beanie's custom smoked malt that he handed out 60+ pounds of to everyone in the club.

Tis the season for my Coffee Stout.  Was going to brew it up today, but forgot to cold soak the grains.  So now it's on the schedule for Thursday!
