Mashed in on this rainy morning.  I hope I don't have to remain this beer with a situation appropriate name.  I've had a skunk traipsing around my house for about an hour.  He almost made it into the garage a few minutes ago.

Black IPA is planned. Might not manage it though, as I need to prep for floor sanding.

Nothing here.  I was supposed to be working 23 hours today, but I threw my back out yesterday.  I can barely walk....

Very sorry to hear that Denny. I've had my share of back problems so I can relate.

I'm just mashed in on a Terrapin Rye Pale Ale clone. I'm using the recipe from BYO with some adjustments. The hop schedule in the recipe must be off...Beersmith had it calculated at 79 IBU, while the recipe said it should be 45. I dialed the hop amounts down to get it in range so I hope it comes out OK.

 ;D I figured that was it. Ya definitely gotta monitor closely and throttle the gas until the hot break! I like to boil vigorously so even after the break, I don't whack it open and walk away. Cheers.

Sorry to hear about your back, Denny.  Gettin' old sucks, don't it? ;)  Made that Cascadian dark ale yesterday.  Chilled it in the snow, (couldn't get to an outside faucet).  Thinking the Brewmaster 3000 needs to get started again.  Getting too old to hump around 15 gallon kettles. :(

Ageing ain't for wimps!   I am mashed in on a parti-gyle style thing.
hoping to get two beers knocked out this afternoon...may be late before
it is all cleaned up.  I just had this big nice S-189 yeast cake that is begging
to be werterized again....and a couple packs of US-05 for the 1st go from the mash.

Edit: well It worked and mighty well if I may say...5.5 hrs and I got 2 beers in the fermenters.
Parti-gyle rocks if I may be so bold as to say...yeah a bit more work but a lot more beer...

1st beer rang in at 1.070 and went with us-05  then to the mash I added back to the mash
another pound of pilsner and a pound of maize for the 2nd beer which came in at 1.050 and got
put on the S-189 cake that just finished a few days ago.  One lager and One ale how sweet it is... ;D

After dropping off a care package of Amarillo APA for a neighborhood non-SuperBowl party, did "research" with some friends at Social Kitchen and Brewery http://socialbrewsf.com/ which has been hit and miss but right now is featuring some great strong beers for San Francisco Beer Week. Really liked The Giant S'more, but glad I ordered a small glass of it.

Feel better, Denny... my doctor refers to the "A-Word" (aging).

Drew,
If ya ever add all gallons of all the beers brewed just under this heading since inception
how much beer is that??  Amazing I am sure. That information could be an arrow in
the quivver of....either good or bad...pro or con...but bottom line is lots of beers were
mentioned herein. 20K gallons.....more?? Less?

Nevermind, the bean counter in me rarely appears.  ;D
