Flanders brown (kind of) tonight.  100% brett fermented.  Might add some Jolly Pumpkin dregs down the road to kick up the sourness if the brett doesn't cut it.

Going to try my very first mead sometime this week too.  I've got a bunch of raw honey from my grandparents farm and 12lbs of blackberries, marionberries, and blueberries in the freezer.  Been doing lots-o-reading up on the process.

Trying to source oat malt locally, but it looks like I'll have to order online, so my oat malt porter will wait until I've got that I suppose.

The wife is out of town for 2 weeks, so it's brew central at my place.

Nothing brewing this weekend.  I'll keg the ESB and one of these weekends I should probably bottle the barleywine that I brewed when my son was born.  He just turned 9 months old so I guess it's about time to get it into bottles.

Other than that just watching the airlock bubble on the CAP and quality control sampling.

I'll be cleaning and possibly kegging this weekend, I've got 20 gallons ready for packaging.  Or if it's a stag weekend I'll be brewing 5 gallons of hefe, and maybe 5 gallons of Flanders, but that is more likely to be next weekend.

I'll be judging the BrewFest Homebrew Competition‏ on Saturday. I'll also continue to work on the vegetable garden Sunday.

No brewing this weekend.

Kegging double decocted hefeweizen. Brewing double decocted helles.

I have a feeling my next brew will involve a very straightforward single-infusion mash!

no brewing.  will determine if my mojito mead is ready for bottling or if it needs another week of dry-minting.

I'm tossing around the idea of either an Alt or an IPA.  Hmmm... I've got a pound each of Centennial and EKG's that I haven't opened yet.

No Brewing here either.  I'll probably be sniffing the airlock on my Oktoberfest and hopefully cleaning out the brew shed.  Geez, what a disaster!

No brewing this weekend, but I will make a starter for my Saison which will be next weekend, hopefully. :)  Tapped my "Brew for the Cure", a raspberry wit, nice pink tint, crisp and tart.

Taking the weekend off for recovery purposes.  Plus I've got 3 kegs on tap, 5 in waiting, and 2 batches fermenting.  I'm set for a bit.
