I'll be kegging in prep for our Thanksgiving festivities.  I've got a bitter and a RIS to keg, and an Irish stout and a Flanders that might as well get kegged as long as I'm doing it.  That means keg cleaning is on the list too . . .

I'm also getting some late harvest semillon juice tomorrow, but that's not really brewing :)

I'm doing a take on an old ale with some maple syrup, D-180 candi syrup, and Wyeast NeoBritannia.

Brewing up my witbier tonight.  This time with the correct mash volume.  (Math error caused me to have a higher than usual water/grain ratio.  Still came out excellent though).

I need some "normal" beers on tap so I may do a mild today and a ESB Sunday.
Last weekend I brewed a quad(1.098 OG) and hit it with pure O2 for 30 seconds through the racking port.  It was bubbling at 64F Monday when I went out of town, this morning I checked on it and there is krausen all over the conical, the blowoff hose bucket, and the tray they sit in.  I'll check the gravity at lunch.  If 'it's done I'll keg it and let it sit in the cool garage for a month or so.
I'd really just rather be brewing in sunny Carlsbad New Mexico

There's still enough time to produce a beer for Thanksgiving if you follow that fantastic article in this month's Zymurgy by, I must say, a daring, dashing and charming writer! :)

Are you rocking the brewery this week?

I really enjoyed that article and I'm thinking about trying that. Although not this weekend, I'm going to attempt my first 10 gallon batch of a Cream Ale.

Don't give up on it completely. You might want to use it again at some point. ;)

Anyway, I'm gonna do a bitter with Brewer's Gold and Amarillo with 10# 2-row and Windsor yeast to clean out the brewing supplies. Toying with doubling it up by adding about 8# of LME. But then I'd need more yeast and hops confounded with a trip to the LHBS.

I'm going to start my weekend Saturday watching The Rivalry.

What are the chances that 3 guys who didn't know each other but who went to the same small (~4500 undergrads) engineering school on the east coast, would all end up on the west coast in the Seattle area, homebrewing, and in the same 12 person homebrew club?  Well, in my case it's 100%.

No brewing. Going to keg the bourbon vanilla porter, work on my keezer collar (getting close to finishing) and cleaning the shop.

Maybe have a beer or two.

Have a great weekend everyone!

Got 4 oz of cocoa nibs (they smell very fresh and chocolatey) and am going to get some vodka to make an extract for my oatmeal stout, to be bottled over the holiday weekend sometime.

Brewing some more oatmeal stout tomorrow, and bottling my experiment, a belgian type amber ale.
