I'm hosting my annual Oktoberfest party on Saturday.  I might pick up ingredients for next weekend's Bière de Garde brew.  I also plan to spend some time rethinking some of my recipes.  I've had a couple of fails in a row, I'm sorry to say.   :-[

Good luck with the paartay! Sorry about the Helles.

My turn to circulate this weekend so no brewing. Unless I want to brew on Monday it'll have to be tomorrow after I rack a bitter to kegs.

Maybe an IPA with a repitch? The bitter was only 1.044 anyway...

I'm picking grapes for a friend on Saturday, and the brew club meets Sunday.  Not sure I'll sneak in a brew unless we get two tons of grapes picked in half a day.  We wll be brewing up an extract kit at brew club, one of the Irish band members is getting into brewing.  Yay!

Hosting our first Oktoberfest tomorrow. We've got 70 folks coming over for crocks-o-brats. 4 of our own  brews from the past year and two guest taps from a local brewpub (Kolsch & Oktoberfest).  We just got set up with fermentation temp control so we didn't have time to make the traditional German Lagers.  Next week I'll get to do my first lager!  What should I brew???

Doing an ESB partial mash with a friend thats just learning to brew tonight then doing an Oktoberfest on Sunday.  Hoped to have that one done earlier but I have fallen behind on my lagers.  I try to do 3 or 4 in a row so that I can repitch the yeast.

Similiar to you James, I have got a smack pack of 1968 headed to the stir plate.
Got chalk in a keg of carbonated water to get the water chemistry more favorable
for an ESB.  I hope to pitch it (1968)  tomorrow into an ESB plan I have worked up..
need to get my beer supply stocked back up. Been a while since I have
brewed because of my health...dang that water is heavy.

If I get off my lazy butt, I'll be bottling an Amber Ale.  Oh, and last night, started up from a slant of 1007 for a Mocktoberfest for next weekend.
