What's Brewing This Weekend - 5/20 Edition
« on: May 18, 2011, 11:26:01 AM »
Ok, so what's it going to be? Are you brewing or is it end times enough for you to decide to abandon all future projects and just enjoy what you have on tap?

For me, I'm about to kick off a Saison brew for the conference and in my usual fashion - 1 wort, 2 beers!

SWMBO and the kids will be gone, so I'm planning a Weizen and a Flanders.  I might do a RIS too, if all goes well. ;D

This will be the third straight night of brewing, but tonight I'm brewing a batch with the crew at Breckenridge Brewery!   ;D
Won a drawing after judging Denver NHC.

I'm done brewing for a bit.  I have about 90 gallons of beer in the basement, so I think I'm good for a while (probably about 2 weeks).  Plus there's family in town for college graduation (sis-in-law) so gotta do that stuff.

Our local Rogue has started a program for our club to brew there and have a tap handle.  If we can come up with Mt. Hood hops, I'll be brewing Rye IPA there this Sat.

Well, my wife is about ---> <--- this close to going into labor, so this weekend is dedicated to a million last-minute projects around the house... or just sitting at the hospital with the newest addition to the family. We'll see. I'm picking Monday in the office pool.  ;)

I'm brewing a Bohemian Pils for the Pilsner Urquell promotion/competition.  The beer has to be ready by beginning of August.  Procrastinate much?  I may have to use beechwood aging to move it along. ;)  I may not even do a decoction.  And I'm not even using PU yeast, just WY2308 cuz that's what I have.

Yeah, that'll make a good Boh Pils...for me to poop on.

Assuming that the new child doesn't make its appearance I'll be brewing an IPA. I may also experiment with a no boil Berliner Weiss.

House IPA. Have not decided on 5 or 10 gallons yet.

Wife is out of town, and being that I killed a keg of SNCA in about 25 days, I better get some APA going before the next keg of SNCA is gone and that tap is empty. 

Going old school - 2-row, Victory and C45, Columbus bittering, Cascade/Centennial mix for flavor and flameout, 001 yeast.

While that's going, kegging Vienna.

Hey Denny - don't you live near Freshops?  They had Mt Hood last time I checked I think - or maybe you need bales?

Brew session is in progress, dogs are running around and the neighborhood kids are taking advantage of the break in the rain.

In the mean while, better figure out the OG of this merlot must that's headed towards the beer!
