I decided to brew yesterday.  Unfortunately, I didn't start until 2pm.  I ended up brewing an American IPA, American Barleywine, and a black IPA.  The Black IPA was actually a bonus since I had plenty of good wort left from the barleywine mash to make another IPA.  Since I hadn't ever brewed one I figured "what the heck".  What is rather amusing is... I am not a huge fan of black IPA's.  I do have to admit though, the wort tastes awesome!  I guess we'll see how it turns out.

Yesterday I brewed a rye pale ale and then a Belgian pale ale.  I finished the BPA with Amarillo, not sure how that is going to work out but it seemed like a good idea at the time.

Brewed an EPA on Sunday.  I intended to get 10 gal of "Best Bitter" with calc. OG of 1.046, but got 11 gallons of "ESB" with actual OG of 1.052.  Got more than I expected (both volume and gravity), so I'm happy.  The wort tasted delicious--I'm expecting good things from this beer.
