No brewing, but dry-hopping an English barleywine, bottle-washing, and a little "research" (plus I expect Gordon's book will arrive by then for some real research)

It's a triple decocted Bo-Pils on Saturday for the Pilsner Urquell Master Homebrewer Competition on August 8th at The Big Apple.

I'll be wearing my brewing shoes on Saturday.  ;)

No brewing....again :(  I'll be recalibrating my boil kettle volume to see where I lost on the test run batch 2 weeks ago.  Speaking of...I'll be taking the initial gravity reading on that 1.  It should go to kegs around the middle of next week.  O'fest brew day is coming up 5/8.

Right now I'm boiling wort for a 1.100 Burton ale that is destined to go into a used up bourbon barrel (with similar beers brewed by other club members) to be aged for a year.

You have to?  :)  You lucky guy!

I'll be sleeping most of the day on Sat. getting ready for what looks to be a 24 hour work shift on Sun.
