Making my first cider with fresh-pressed, unpasteurized juice straight from a local orchard.  I may squeeze in a West Coast-style APA too.

Week 2 of brewing class tonight, I'm doing an extract brew with specialty grains this week.  I think I'll make it a dry stout just to impress on them that you can make a black beer with light extract and the right specialty grains.

Czech Pils.  First lager.  Probably could have chosen an easier style, but I figure what the heck.

Ya know, 20 years ago I figured if I could make a clean European Lager, I could make anything.  It took several tries, but the effort and educational experiences were worth the effort.  The resources are much better these days, so I'm sure you'll be fine.

Dortmunder Saturday. Just a 5 gallon batch to get some yeast going. Should be good for a few Vienna's and O-Fest's in the following months. Sunday is a Smokin' day. 2 pork butts for pulled pork & ~30 lbs. of hams that have been curing for the past 2 weeks. Cheers!!!

Ya, I kinda feel the same way.  Ever since my first visit to the Czech Rep. this has been one of my favorite styles.  I'm sure it will take several tries to get a decent version down, but I figure I may as well start now.  Thanks!

Nice! do you have your own sugarbush or did you find folks with unused maples? How'd you boil? I helped some friends one year with an outdoor shallow pan boiler, took like a cord of wood to get them 2 gallons of syrup.

I'll be making a Doppelbock for a contest in Feb and kegging a Pumpkin Ale for drinking later this month.

Update: Brewing a Munich Helles so i can then have enough yeast for the Doppelbock.
Everyone should believe in something. I believe I'll have another beer.

No brewing. Dry hopping 3 different 10g batches of AIPA.  ;D
