Was hoping to fit in an all Galaxy hop AIPA but a plumbing project waiting at the lake cottage has taken precedence. Plus I want to stay for awhile, so... probably nothing next weekend either.  ;D  Gonna bottle off some fresh SSoS and a couple others in 1L swingtops to take for sustenance.

Got ~11 lbs of 2 row rolling around in the bottom of a bag plus 1 lb of malted rye thats been sitting on the shelf awhile.
 
Think I'll throw them together with whatever is the oldest pack of yeast I have and do a little house cleaning.

Ah nice, a cleanup beer.  I'm about due for one of those myself.

Nothing brewing this weekend for me though.  It's a brewfest weekend so I'll be doing "product research".

Big weekend, first all grain batch for me.  And while I can't prove it, I believe this will be the first all grain homebrew batch in the history of Malaysia...

Rob's brewing a Kolsch tomorrow (while I'm at work  :'(), and on Saturday, we're brewing a 30 minute Pale Ale at a brewout nearby.  The Pale Ale is a starter for next week's brew.

Yook the day off to finish up a bathroom remodel, made a small batch of hefeweizen in between the plumbing and finish work.  Everything looks pretty good.  I'm going to rack a helles tomorrow or Sunday and brew another lager with the cake.  I also have a Waldo Lake Amber that should be finished this weekend, that would be another cake to use.

I might be brewing but im definitely bottling a brew and racking another into secondary

OK changed my mind, now I will be brewing this weekend. Going to make a variation of Old Monster barley wine from Palmer/Zainasheff and go from there. And I guess I can bottle and rack before attempting that beast

Good choice, and a good recipe.  I did a variation of it and it was really tasty after a year and even better at two.

On Saturday I sparged and collected 12 gallons of wort from 23 pounds of grain.  A five hour boil reduce that to 6 gallons of 1.108 Burton Ale.  12 ounces of EKGs boild along with it the last 45 minutes, added at various intervals. The beer is fermenting merrily away at 58°F in my basement with WY1028 London.....so now you know you can ferment this yeast this low.

Once the primary starts to subside, I'll propably bring the bucket upstairs to finish it off at 70°, to ensure complete fermentation.  Then, it will be going into a very used 45 gallon bourbon barrel along with other club members' Burton ales for a year of aging.

We are debating the merits of adding some brett to the cask.
