Going to do the Black IPA thing Friday night. I know some think it's wrong...

It's wet, it's cold, it's flavorful, it's beer... what could be wrong with it other than the name?

The taste?  Yeah, I'm a curmudgeon....

I did say some think it's wrong. I was trying not to name names...


He couldn't possibly be talking about me!

I'm brewing a 1554 clone on Sunday.  Hooray!

I just finished turning my kegerator from a commercial snake head tap into a double CO2 line, pin lock connected home brew goodness dispenser.  All I have to do now is keg my first batch tomorrow, an extract kit English Bitter. 

Then on Sunday, I am brewing a Lefse Blonde extract kit.  This will be my fourth extract kit, the first Porter is almost gone, except for one six pack I am storing away for a rainy day, and the third, a Black IPA will go into the secondary on Sunday for another month of love.

Saturday I am going on a private tour of the New Belgium Brewery in Fort Collins, will try not to sob and beg for a job...

Hope to be doing Green Flash West Coast IPA on Sunday, but there may be snow in the forecast...not that I haven't brewed in the snow before.

2011 batch of Lenten Brew.  A group from church brews it.  We bottle it together about mid-Lent and it's ready for drinking on Easter.  A new take on Lenten Discipline.  (third year for it)  We don't drink the beer that we made just before Lent, during Lent.

I agree with Denny, he is a curmudgeon. :D

No brewing, but lots of drinking with family visiting. I'll have to brew several batches next weekend to restore supplies...

I am going to do a beer that I have not done in ages with a twist.

A cream ale.  The twist is to add all the hops at knockout and do a steep.  I will be doing something like Kiwanda Cream Ale.  Mrs. R. approves of this attempt and experiment, as she likes Kiwanda Cream Ale.

Cool! I was actually planning to do this myself! I'm on a low-carb discipline through Lent (started early... my pants shrunk over Christmas), and was thinking about a Lenten brew for the same reasons. What did you brew?
