  5. I got a buddy coming over today to help me bottle about 12 gallons. A pacifica pale ale, a maple nut brown and 1 gallon of mead. Brewing again in a week or so...
     
  6. I had planned on Sunday but couldn't wait! I will say if I didnt live in an Apartment I would have a propane burner, some day I guess. Saddly only a 5 gallon batch though.

    That said this weekend I am working on hot sauces (3, 1 fermented) & kimchi.

    Beats the hell out of 'Single Nut Brown', not to mention 'Nutless Brown'.

    Brewing an English IPA tomorrow. It's above freezing and going to stay that way for about 48 hours... maybe I'll brew naked.

    Black Pale Ale (think small Black IPA). Brewed about a month ago. Despite having a somewhat cynical view on this classification, style or whatever, I confess to finding some satisfaction. Next up are Belgian Pale Ale and British Pale Ale (and unlike black pale ale, these will actually be pale).

  15. Going to try my first all grain batch tomorrow. First time with 10 gal pot and outside burner. Biab. Recipe claims similar to Sierra Nevada celebration.

    I'll be outside but can duck into the greenhouse occasionally.
     
  17. Also might have time to split my recently fermented batch of Belgian wit (extract): 2.5gal on apricot with Brett lambicus. 2.5 gal to bottles.
     
  18. I typically do partial mash recipes and would love to try an all grain batch but being in an apartment not exactly an option. Good luck sir! As Well as you skivtjerry hope you have a good name for this bare brew

    Naked Hops IPA... kinda joking, but if the sun comes out I won't be wearing much. Winter sun is a little rare here, especially combined with 50F temperatures - gotta get my vitamin D!

    2+ feet of snow just slid off the roof & scared the hell out of me... the thaw is on.

    Good brewing for those brewing this weekend.

    I managed to get a round of golf in today at the club, in shorts and short sleeves. Had a couple of Sweetwater 420's at the clubhouse. Girl couldn't change the keg, so I went downstairs and did it for her, got a me a pitcher on the "house" for it!

    No brewing for me.. Got a Chinook, Amarillo, Simcoe, Citra, Cascade IPA a week old in the fermenter still going, so gonna wait on that.

    Enjoying a good homebrew Citra Pale Ale on the porch with a fire going. 67* out tonight in Georgia... Man I love global warming. Here's a toast to warm winters.

    Good point. The 90+ temps aren't all that awesome for my hobbies. Golf and brewing.. Ball flies, but beer takes a bit to chill with 78* ground water!

    I went to HS in Alabama and have lots of relatives around Atlanta, so I know how it is (that's one reason I'm here:)). But I do love your fall weather that lasts 3 months. We go from summer to winter in about 5-6 weeks here. But you do have good soft brewing water, as I do here - similar geology though the climate is different. Though my well water flows at 44F year round:D.

    Drinking a homebrew Belma IPA indoors, by the woodstove right now...

    Good deal bud.

    I see your way, way north. Way more north than I'd care to go!!

    I'm a Texas boy, so this weather, with 4 real seasons is fun.. My father lives in N. Alabama.. Nice country, for Alabama!

    Care to trade some Heady? Never had it.. I know you've got a hankerin' for some southern goodness eh?

    I don't trade because my wife would kill me if I spent more money on beer. However, she loves big imperial stouts (as do I, but she's crazy for them) so if you can get your hands on some Sexual Chocolate we might be able to talk... (or if your dad can convince Drive By Truckers to do a show up here soon).

    (trivia): My avatar was taken in front of a fundamentalist church about 15 miles from where I was born in western NC. My lovely and beer loving wife is by my side.

    Hrmm... where in NC... We have a summer family house on Fontana near Bryson. Is that an Andrews number?

    I have some good stouts from the area, especially West NC.. Nantahala and such. I'll try and come up with something in your favor. I'm an IPA fiend, and would love to try heady!
