I'm brewing a Belgian Pale Ale on Sunday. The maiden voyage on the Single Tier Brewstand (Smokestack Lightning).

It should be fun.  :)

I started cleaning last night.  My garage is full of stuff soaking in oxyclean, and kegs that don't fit in my fridge.

I'm brewing a scaled-up batch of Belgian Pale Ale at the new Market Garden Brewery in Cleveland tomorrow.  Brewmaster Andy Tveekrem (formerly brewmaster at Great Lakes, Dogfish Head and others) invited me up to do a collaborative brew with him.  We're jacking up the recipe from my book to 6.5% to make it a little special. It's a great honor, and I'm really looking forward to it.  Some of it might even show up at a certain keg-only event in Cincinnati in August if the brewing stars align properly...

That sounds like fun Gordon.  If it's good enough for the cover...  Call it LeBron's Fail Ale and they'll love it even more.

No brewing for me.  Just moving beers around and buttoning things up for my annual Vegas trip (shoulda skipped it and done NHC).

I'm really bad about just partially filling kegs with used PBW and calling it good until I need the keg. :-\

I've got a couple batches to dry hop and keg, but mainly it's gonna be catching up on the yard work I skipped when I was at NHC.

I looked up Market Garden and wow it is a pretty, nice, new brewery.  That should be fun.
There was also an interesting link there to a huge list of historic breweries in Cleveland.

Me, I've got a lot of lawn work to catch up on, but I need to keg some IPA that's been dry hopping for a few weeks.

As I was posting this, Denny says the same thing.  Must be a lot of that going around.

Yep, yard work and cleaning kegs.  I've got a weizen to keg for a party Saturday, so I should probably get to it before the weekend.  Helen Back Hefeweizen, named for one of my neighbor's sister who is visiting from Ireland.

Brewing a light lager, Friday afternoon.
Never done anything this small, before & never used flaked corn.
Should be quite an experience.

Friday: Kegging and bottling 10 gallons of DC's Rye IPA, tasted great at racking last week.
Saturday: Acquiring the allgrain gear of a coworker that is retiring from work and the hobby to live on a boat.
Sunday: Brewing 10 gallons of Shakespeare Oatmeal Stout Clone. I don't think I'll be able to resist adding some extra dark candi sugar though.
Thank you BEER!

I have a yeast cake of WY1028 waiting to go.  It will be its third use.  The first beer was a 1.045 Northern English brown.  The second beer was a 1.063 Sister Star of the Sun IPA.  The third (and last use) of this yeast will be a 1.100, 100 IBUs (all EKGs) 19th century Burton Ale.

Hope to brew it on Saturday.  Friday I am going rafting, and Sunday I am hosting a barbecue in the backyard celebrating my wife's birthday.  Plan on serving a keg of CAP and a keg of IPA.
