I may also make another attempt at an alt, I did just regrow that yeast to keep it fresh.  Or a witbier, I just got that yeast in not long ago.
My best Alts have been O-fests and Viennas that 'missed'.  :-\

I could live with that.  I've made a couple of Vienna lagers that haven't quite been what I wanted either.

I'd be willing to bet that a vienna of yours that 'missed' was still a 40...

not to digress the topic, but seems like that is such a hard style to nail for some reason - my latest rendition has a little too much malty-dark fruity character going on (probably too much dark munich or caramunich - the latter was a new introduced variable).  reminds me of Boston Lager with less hops.

nothing brewing related this weekend - fermentor is full, all kegs were cleaned last weekend, and the wife's going out with her friends saturday night - steaks on the grill and doing QC on what is on tap I guess :-)

Since I couldn't go to the NHC, I decided to make a hoppy IPA that would make someone from San Diego smile ;D

No brewing for me but I did rack 4 brews into secondaries. Pumpkin ale, Haystack blonde ale, Ruination IPA clone and an amber ale.  ;D
