What's Brewing This Weekend? - 4/1 Edition
« on: March 29, 2011, 09:56:54 AM »
So, what's everyone planning for April Fool's weekend?  

I won't have a new batch of beer to make, but I do plan to start a new cider - still trying to decide between strawberry and blueberry.  I may also break out my smoker for the 1st time this year and smoke some ribs or a few chickens.  :)  

I also need to keg my latest batch of IPA and start force-carbonating it.

American IPA but we're substituting German Pilsner for the 2-row we normally use as a base grain.

I bet that's pretty fun at times - especially if it's a band/performance you want to see. 

C'mon clock!  I want out so I can go have a beer!

I closed my own studio, but I still do the gig at the Hult Center.  Pays pretty well, great benefits.
