What are ya speaking on?

Why From Homebrewing Zero to Hero in 10 Easy Steps :)

So far, everyone's in sync with what I've written, so wee! The only unfortunate part is that now I have to find something to be edgy and controversial about! :)

Oh, that's easy....decoction!  ;)

No plans to brew this weekend. Two weeks until I try to better my BJCP score. Study, study, study... :(

Good luck, Ron!

assuming the hurricane continues on its current path, helles on friday night.

No brewing this weekend as we're taking the Scouts camping.  Ought to be interesting with Irene blowing through.

Since the weather's been getting a little cooler lately I figured I'd do a dry stout on Friday.

I've been rotating my brewing so I can use freshly harvested yeast.  So this weekend it is WL 830 up to bat - sounds like a pilsner is in order.  It can be ready for early mid-season football, if all goes well.

I'm going to try to fit in a Brown Ale in the next few days and my wife and I are going to make our annual Blueberry Wine from all the blueberries we picked up in the UP Michigan.

Don't think I will brew this weekend.  If I do, it will be another cream ale because it's easy and quick, and i went through all of it this past weekend.  But with the hurricane-a-comin' I'm thinking saturday will be a day to just watch movies with the wife.  Sunday is my league's fantasy football draft :-)

I knocked out an amber last night using some of my homegrown hops.  I'll brew again this weekend, and I have three batches to bottle/keg: bock, winter warmer and bitter.

Mashed in on the stout.  I'm trying the cold steeping technique for most of the dark grains for this batch.  I'll add the liquid in with about 15 minutes left in the boil.

No brewing here, I have too much basement-finishing work to do. I do plan on making a starter for an APA though, and hopefully brew it sometime next week.

Brewed an ordinary bitter (OG 1042) and am hoping to brew a Saison today or tomorrow.  I am planning to use a bottle of the dark candy syrup in the Saison and see how it turns out.

Today, (right now in fact) I'm brewing Rocket Rod's Positively Porter.  Tomorrow, it is a great weissen bock that I love.
