Actually Drew, I'm taking your "Heart of Darkness" recipe and brewing it with "Cry Havoc" at around 60-62 degrees.
By the way, I really dig your style articles in Zymurgy.  Loved the American stout and Saison articles you did as well.

NOTHING
Yeast infections are only bad when they don't happen to wort.

I received a big slurry of the Essex Ale Yeast.  Have to do a special bitter with that to have some running beer on hand.

I'll be brewing an APA with WY1450 to build up a slurry for a batch of Old Stoner BW.

No brewing for me until I get the outdoor spigot defrosted again. I have a lager planned with S-189 and a Special Bitter planned for next week sometime. I am kegging some beers right now.

no brewing - kegging one batch, and racking 2 others to secondary (yes, I said secondary - they're big beers...)

Sweet! Let me know how the recipe works for you.

And I have great fun writing those articles.

A friend is holding a 12 year Bigfoot vertical tasting later this month.  Fortunately, he lives real close by!

I don't know if I've ever done a full 12 years, but I've come close. I particularly remember about four years ago a tasting with a '96 that was just drop dead fantastic.

By far the oldest of that ilk I've had was a bottle of ~1982-84 era Old Foghorn in the wee little nippy bottle.

Yes, I still want to get my hands on a Ballatine's Burton just to see what everyone (including you Denny) are talking about.

Waiting for a lager to finish so I can use the yeast cake for an upcoming  Maibock...but that will be a week or two....

10 gallons of porter to pitch on the Nottingham yeast cake from my rye pale ale.  I'll soak vanilla beans in bourbon and add to one keg, cold brewed coffee in the other.
I'd really just rather be brewing in sunny Carlsbad New Mexico
