I'll be preparing to send some entries for NHC which includes some force carbing, bottling and racking. Competition is almost at our doorstep.

Looks like I'll finally have a chance to get to the Dunkelweizen that was discussed earlier...

Nothing this weekend.  Going to clean and refurbish some kegs and maybe pick up a CO2 tank.

Kegging the Belgian Wit and racking the Pyment over to the secondary.  Thinking about how I can reuse the yeast from the Düsseldorf Altbier in a couple weeks and working on longer range plans for another Lager hat trick.  (Dortmunder, Vienna and O-Fest)  Need to dig up Blatz' Dortmunder & O-Fest recipes & see how I can adapt them to what I have on hand. Heard they're pretty good...Cheers!!!
If Homebrew & BBQ aren't the answer, then you're askin' the wrong questions... Cheers!!!

I'll try to get some kegging and general maintenance stuff done, and get my mill cabinet all back together.  I picked up a low speed drill to run it too, the cordless one wasn't cutting it.

I may try to brew an Irish Stout, but that might wait.

Going to do the Black IPA thing Friday night. I know some think it's wrong, but I've quite liked the few commercial examples I've had. Oh, and it has to be an IPA as I need to use a large volume of hops in order to make room for all the fish I'm going to bag on Sunday (I hope).

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

Oh, I don't think there's anything wrong with it. Except the name. This needs some work, and I'm not convinced that the CDA or the American Black Ale has universal acceptance.

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