And no brewing this weekend.  Marching band season has started which means my weekends are owned by my kid's band comps.

Where the heck are we going?  And what's with this hand basket?

First extract in quite a while - I am brewing a pumpkin ale that is my LHBS formula that he won silver with at AHA a few years back.  My homebrew club is brewing early Sunday and I will have a later start, so the extract solved the time issue.  I should be chilled and pitched about the same time as the AG guys.

Good Brewing to all - and Denny, I hope you are back at it soon!

Mashed in a Rye IPA at 8:45 this morning.  Hopping with warrier, columbus and cascades.  I plan to split the batch, five gallons with US 05 and five with Ardennes yeast.

Just finished up a Bopils.  Three rest steps, two of which were decoctions, plus a 90 minute boil.  I'm a bit tired.  I always seem to pick the hottest days to do these kinds of beers.  It's sitting in the chest freezer coming down to pitching temp at the moment.

Maybe you should be in there, too.
My brew day went well, with 10 gallons of wort pitched and the brewery clean after about five and a half hours.
Relaxing with a homebrewed Belgian Blonde now, smiling that tomorrow is a  holiday.

Just doughed in on a late hop American pale ale.  Four to five ounces of hops will go into these five gallons of wort.

Doing a Scottish 80/- this morning, went the BCS grain bill (honey malt, British crystals and a touch of pale chocolate) with the exception of using Golden Promise and Edinburgh ale yeast.

Something mildish for Ottoberfest, but British.  I'm thinking 16 pounds of Maris Otter, 2 pounds crystal 60, Willamtette at 60, 20 and flameout brewed with Nottingham yeast to finish fast.
I'll also be kegging my altbier which tasted amazing last night, racking a cider to a clean keg and adding sugar(any ideas about how much?)
On my way home from the office it hit me-German mild.  15 pounds of Munich, 1.5 pounds Carapils, Perle for bittering and Tettnanger or Hallertau for 20 minutes and flameout.  With the Nottingham yeast it should finish fast

I'd really just rather be brewing in sunny Carlsbad New Mexico

No brewing this weekend, but I'm getting projects/errands done that ensure I have next Sunday afternoon free and placing orders so I'll have the goods for it. Planning an extract brew because I haven't done one in over two years and I'm curious to see how it stacks up to my all-grain. Going to do a full boil.

Just got the American Amber into the fermenter (still cooling so I haven't pitched yet).

Brewed up 10gal. of Octoberfest (yeah, I know it is rather late to start this) yesterday.  It was the second time doing a decoction mash.  Had it into the fermentor and cleaned up within 8 hours!

I did an Oktoberfest as well, no decoction though.  5 gallons with White Labs bock yeast (This yeast really brings out the malt) and 5 gallons with S-05 (Mocktoberfest)

Just started 10 gals of English Bitter.  I know it's Tuesday, does it still count as the weekend?
