Saturday is our inaugural "Delaware State Fair - Battle of the Brews Homebrew Competition". I am the judge coordinator. We have some 200+ beers to judge. It's going to be a hot one...and one not to miss. Come One ...Come all !

No brewing this weekend. The Quad is happily fermenting and smelling magnificant.

I will be helping with the judging there as well.  First competition.  100+ degrees.  In a tent.  Should be fun. :o  I hope to finish building my lagerator on Sunday to be ready for this years Oktoberfest fermentation next weekend.

I noticed during the recent MLB All-Star game that the Diamondback stadium had a pool party area...
...Might be nice if your tent had a wading pool area, especially given the temps.

Just chilling down my tripel.  I tried a taste of the Simplicity syrup and found it had kind of honey notes to it.

I'm likely brewing a lager of some sort when I rack an Ofest off its yeast cake.  Then I need to make another best bitter too, almost out.  Will also be bottling a few gallons from my 11gal wild beer barrel/solera and replacing it with some dubbel I brewed for the purpose.

I judged a contest in a venue that was quite warm a month ago, and it was no surprise that some lighter styles won the day.

Denny I have some syrup that tastes like honey too, its called honey!

Yesterday I made a first attempt at a wit.  Not perfect but it's something to build on.  Today I threw together a last minute wheat beer (5 lbs 2-row, 5 lbs wheat, 1/2 lb Munich with 1 oz of Perle @ 60 and 1/2 oz of Hallertau at 15 and 1/2 oz at flameout.  WLP001 left over from another brew.  Just made it since I had the yeast.  Could be great, could be crap.

Birthday Brew.  Pale Ale.

Happy Birthday whenever that may be! I'm going to be brewing a sierra pale ale clone.

Just wrapped up a 9 hour double brew day.  Mostly.  I still have to pitch the yeast but I'm done outside at least.  It's 106F out there. 

Both brews went off mostly without a hitch though.  Another ESB and a Strong Golden ale I used amarillo in for the first time.  That one smelled pretty good.

Time for some cold beer.

Actually taking a weekend away from brewing/bottling.  After preparing 8 beers for our party plus any other beers we have brewed along the way it is time to take a short break.  The next beers to be made are an Octoberfest and an IPA.

Cheers

Glad to hear you enjoy the Gumball Head Thoughts! I will admit though, it's not an outright clone. It's like someone took a zoomed in photo that makes the subject appear bigger than normal. :)

Tomorrow I will brew 165 gal of Bohemian Dark Lager.

Lets see... With my 5 gallon max brewing capacity, thats 33 seperate boils and a neeed for at least 33 carboys (66 if going with secondary).  You the MAN! ;D

I hope it went well.

I'm brewing a huge five gallon batch each of an ESB and a black IPA (my wife likes this one so I have to keep it in the available selections so she won;t complain about all of the money I've been spending getting set up).
