What's Brewing THis Weekend - 7/1 Edition
« on: June 29, 2011, 10:22:43 AM »
I'm a Yankee Doodle Dandy,

Brewing on the Fourth of July!

So what are you my fellow Yankee Doodles (and non-Yank-a-doodles) brewing this weekend?

Me, I'm either going to do a Oat Malt Wild Ale or a Sweet Stout.

Either a tripel to try out the Simplicity syrup or a late hopped pale ale to try to use up some of the 8 lb. of homegrown Cascades in my freezer before I have to deal with year's crop.

ETA:  going with a pretty straightforward APA.  Pale malt, 10% C60, 7-8 oz. of Cascade in the last 20 min.

I'm hoping to brew a wheat. Can't decide if I should experiment with some dark corn syrup in a simple extract brew or try a BIAB wheat experiment to check my efficiencies.

Retiring my BLUE Coleman cooler and taking my new direct fired MLT for a spin, (Sorry Denny. But I am still a cooler disciple at heart) Brewing my first Kolsch on Saturday and then my house APA next Tuesday.  I'd flip the order but fermentaion temps are driving the schedule.   Love the Holiday weekends with a vacation day or 2 tacked on!

Brewing a Vienna lager and then splitting a 10 gallon batch of bitter into 5 gallons of ordinary bitter with EKGs and 5 gallons of west coast bitter/San Diego session ale with PNW hops.

Taking next week off from work - "staycation" - and brewing most every day starting Friday.  Originally was going to do a road trip next week and eventually head to Indy to judge at the Brewer's Cup but that's a really freaking long drive and I'm tired of spending all my money on hotel rooms/gas.  
Anyway, I've got a got a patersbier, southern english brown, hefe, and strong scotch ale that need to be brewed, and am about out of IPA and hoppy amber so I'll have to rectify that situation too.

cheers--

Going out of town for my son's state baseball tournament this weekend (F-Sa-Su-M).  Taking my BPA and BDS cornys along for all the Moms and Dads to enjoy around the hotel pool after each game.  Looking forward to freeing up a few more kegs so I can brew again.

I just brewed a Vienna lager last night, chilled it overnight to 48F then racked a helles to keg this morning and pitched that yeast cake to the Vienna.  That was a long evening and early morning.

I have a witbier yeast in the fridge, I'll probably brew a wit and then a best bitter.

I'll be bottling a blueberry blonde ale I brewed for my brother and cousin. Might brew with a friend as he hasn't seen the brewing "process" yet, lol

I plan on sacrificing lots of sleep to try and pull off a three batch weekend. IPA, APA, and saison. I have two empty slots in the kegerator that need to get back into service!

off on Friday - doing a dual brew with a brewclub buddy - I'm doing  a hefeweiss and trying a ferulic acid rest for the first time and my friend is doing a sticke alt.  We split each batch.

I see a lot of people say 30min for the FA rest, and then others say 45 - any last minute advice?
