I brewed up an ordinary bitter on Saturday. I need a session beer to take a break between all the holiday ales out there. Unfortunately the brew room temperature crashed Saturday night (55F) and the 1028 yeast went to sleep. I moved the carboy closer to the chimney and it's now bubbling away. Life is good.
Bottled: Little Mac 60/-; Kipling Pale Ale Clone
Fermenting: 1914 Courage Imperial Stout
On Deck: Bohemian Pilsner, American Pale Ale

Czar Willie's Imperial Oatmeal Stout - basically a revved up version of my Weak-Kneed Willie's Oatmeal Stout.  Need to pick up my share of Denny's BVIP from bluesman too.

subtle grist changes are more what makes vienna distinct from oktoberfest, not just gravity.  vienna is typically all or mostly all vienna, whereas fest is usually base of vienna with munich and pils added.

no brewing this weekend, but we're doing a club brew next weekend - 70 gal in two days!

I have little experience with Vienna lagers, other than occasionally having a Negra Modelo or a Bohemia at a taqueria in San Francisco's Mission District that serves alcohol illegally after 2 am. I actually went to summer school in Vienna when I was 16 and only ever drank Pilsner there (along with tequila shots Wiener-style, with cinnamon-sprinkled Orange Slices rather than salt and lime).

Ordinary Bitter - can't decide on volume though 15 or 30 gallons.

25 gallons of what turned out to be Best bitter - over shot my gravity a bit.

On Monday (playin hooky) I am brewing a partigyle American Barleywine and ESB (with the second runnings).  Then, after that an Old Ale.

Should be a long and exciting day!

AMEN to that!!!  Wish I could help ya.  I love to do partigyles! Regular brew days just seem, well, routine in comparison.  :o

Another batch of German pils on top of the yeast from the one I brewed 3 weeks ago.  Gotta crank out those lagers while it's cold.

pooped is an understatement - started at 8am yesterday morning - all the equipment was put away and wort aerated and pitched at 8:15pm.  couple of house chores, a quick sandwich and I hit the showers, then bed.  If you ever dream of opening a brewery, do what I just did first!

Fell short on the gravity of the old ale cause I accidentally added a half gal too much to the sparge and was too tired and too late to boil another half hour.

Quick peek at the fermenters this morning before work - everything (barleywine, ESB, Old Ale) is rocking away at 64df.  Life is good.
