My wife and I are going to Philly and NYC for a few days.  I'm looking forward to some beer/pub research.

I was in NY a couple weeks ago and ran across a stellar IPA called "Flower Power" from Ithaca Brewing.  If you see it, try it!

I was in NYC last weekend.  The local homebrewers (a great bunch, BTW) met me at Rattle N Hum near The Empire State Building.  I think it was on 33rd between 5th and Madison.  They have a web site.

Great selection!  They had an IPA festival recently, so many were still on tap.  They had 5 gravity casks and 2 hand pumps, plus something like 40 taps.  I didn't have food while there, but what I saw looked great (like a proper English breakfast).

Two big thumbs up if you're in midtown.

If you don't have Monk's Cafe in Philly on your list, add it.

I'll be bottling a dubbel and making a starter for next week, assuming I can figure out a day to brew next week. I've got a tube of WLP500 in the fridge that's begging to be turned into a tripel.
It's such a fine line between stupid and clever.

Popping the cherry on my newly constructed HERMS rig with an APA; my first all grain recipe after doing extract for 6 years.  To say I'm excited is an understatement...

Repitching the yeast (WY3068) from a dunkelweizen, so probably a weizenbock.  I am also considering crafting a gose with a mix of the german wheat yeast and some lactobacillus.

I made the Gose recipe from the BYO magazine (couple issues ago) with wheat, flaked sea salt and accidulated malt. It came out perfect. If only it were my recipe. Was so impressed with the souring of the accidulated malt that I put it in a elderflower saison. Trying it today.

I'll be brewing something in the next week.  Possibly another batch of Seamus, or maybe another hefeweizen.  Those two plus another TBD (probably a pale ale) are next up.
