Nothing for me. Waiting for my first batch to bottle-condition.

O'fest has hit TG so kegging that to start it lagering.  Dry hoping an English IPA and running around like a maniac for my Son's  first tournament of the spring season.  I think I heard the wife mention something about "yard work" but I have no idea what she is talking about!

No brewing per se but racking our first all grain batches to glass secondaries and reviewing last weekends session to refine the notes and plan for continuous improvement!

Imperial IPA on Saturday morning, first time using Cirta hops (aroma only).  I'm excited to see how they work out.

I suggest you read THIS thread before racking to a secondary fermenter.  I've stopped doing it, unless I need to do a 'true' secondary fermentaion (adding more fermentable sugars to the secondary fermenter) or when dry-hopping.

Hey, look, I'd posted in that thread.

Just for the record, unlike what I said back in that thread, I've now come around to the dark side.  No more secondaries for me in almost all cases.

Ginseng American Amber for my neighbors, which is one in a series of strange beers I am brewing for them.  

They distribute Chinese herbs and manufacture coconut milk kefir for a living - you can pick their brand up at Whole Foods here in LA.  

The first was a reishi mushoom oatmeal stout which they were really into.

They're always talking about having it contract brewed and adding it to their product line (I'm not holding my breath).

Today was a screwed-up cream ale sort of thing that started as something else and changed gears twice.
8.5 lbs of pale malt, 0.5 lbs of C45, 100 grams of chocolate malt and 1 lb of flaked corn. 1/2 oz of Northern Brewer at 60, 1/2 oz of Liberty leaf at 30, 1/4 oz at 15 and 1/4 oz at flameout.
No idea what this will be like.  Here's hop(p)ing.

Thinking about trying a mild tomorrow and an Octoberfest sometime next week.
Then, I will need to start drinking to make space.  Off to open the cottage next weekend, taking 5 gals of Cali Common with me if I get it kegged soon.

I'm going to brew an oatmeal stout to develop a yeast cake for my Imperial stout.
I'd really just rather be brewing in sunny Carlsbad New Mexico

Installing a UV disinfection system on the brew/mead house plumbing.  100% disinfected rainwater (no chlorine) from every tap in the brew/mead house.

Then a side by side melomel experiment.  13 gal no heat - no sulfite jaboticaba melomel split into two batches.  One using WY4184 the other using Lalvin IVC-K1.
There is only one success: to be able to spend your life in your own way.
