    Am I the early bird that gets to start this thread? For me, it's either a Belgian Pale Ale or an English Bitter.

    I am going to whip up a wheat beer. 100% wheat using up the rest of my malt, provided lhbs has some rice hulls.
    Picking up some high gravity yeast to try and finish out my monster weizenbock.
     
  3. DIPA and maybe a Dopple/Eisbockif I have time.
     
  4. Bottling an oatmeal stout and brewing Midwest's Hophead DIPA. Trying to decide whether to pitch 1 or 2 packs of S-05. OG is supposed to be 1.070-1.074 and per MrMalty, I need 1.2 packets.

    No brewing for me. I have a Vienna in the fermenter that needs another week there. When that's done, I have a bock and a dopplebock in the plans.

    But I do plan on going beer hunting this weekend, in search of some Heady Topper. I'll be in Burlington VT. Anyone have any clues where I can find some?

    Brewing our Vanilla Bean Shtout again. Turned out great and it is entered in a competition so we are brewing it
    again so we can pour it at the tasting/awards ceremony.
     
  7. I bottled a sour pale on nectarines and a sour dubbel on plums last night. I’m hoping to keg an amber IPA and a coffee stout this weekend. Hoping to brew a ~5% ABV saison next weekend… the empty fermentors are starting to stack up.

    On Sunday I'll be brewing an imperial stout to blend with an earlier version of the beer that aged in a 3-gallon whiskey barrel.
     
  9. Pale wheat ale with Amarillo and Moteuka for me. Probably kegging and carbing my dry stout with vanilla beans (vanilla flavor doesnt seem to want to comethrough very much though)

    My homebrew club has acquired 4 wine barrels...we want to get them filled. I am taking part in two of them, and the Wee Heavy is first up on my brew schedule. This will be my first time doing a "true" boil down (2 gallons down to a quart), so we will see how it comes out. Next weekend will be the Flanders, which which I am setting out dedicated equipment for (finally funking some shit up to do more sours in the future :)

    Our first barrel, racked in June is coming along very nicely...but it still has some time to go.

  12. Interested to taste how that one comes out! haven't brewed a smoked beer in awhile.

    Trying a rebrew of my accidentally bretted Belgian Pale, harvesting the strain from the one remaining bottle. We'll see how this goes. (I'll be hitting the brew with the harvested yeast at secondary).
     
  14. Brewing an Oktoberfest, my first try at a true lager, also my first try at decoction mashing. Also going to rack my DIPA and taste it, it's currently in the first round of dry hopping.

    Brewing my House Pale Ale (2 row/Crystal 77 Chinook/Simcoe/Amarillo) with a new water profile to see how it turns out. Racked the Schwarzbiers of the primary cakes and "Torpedo'd" my Mosaic American Style Bitter this week. This is the best hobby in the world!

    I was thinking about brewing a Hopslam clone - I just need to figure out if my cooler MLT is big enough.

    mnstorm99 Advocate (535) Minnesota May 11, 2007

    What size batch? And, how big of a cooler?
    http://www.rackers.org/calcs.shtml - go to Can I Mash It?
    Are you batch sparging? You can always split the sparge up if need be.

    HopSlam shouldn't be too big of a grain bill, so I am guessing you should be fine.

    Brewing an APA with Calypso.
     
  22. Sierra Nevada Bigfoot clone.
     
  23. i'm currently mid-boil on a black pepper witbier. it's going to be a 'winter white' so i bumped the OG up to about 1.060 so we'll see how that goes...

    jmich24 Savant (440) Michigan Jan 28, 2010

    Pitch 1.2 packs... possibly more depending on the date on packaging.
     
  25. Im feeling a bit ambitios this weekend so Im brewing a Belgian-Wit and a Saison. Although I may have to buy an extra carboy, I have to rack a Hellas and a 3gal experiment.
     
  26. drinking one now.... great choice to brew this bad boy!
     
  27. If rehydrating, I'd just add 1 IMHO. Underpitch by 17% or overpitch by 67%. Also he's using US05 so age is (likely) inconsequential.
     
  28. I'm getting behind on my brew schedule for the year but I have more pressing business for the next couple months. I've been trying to brew this coffee oatmeal stout for nearly a month and I just don't have the time. I am testing out some new yeast strains so it's at least letting me do something brewing related. Not quite the same as a full brew day but I'll take what I can get right now.
     
  29. Sharing a corny of Coconut Porter that I brewed a little over a month ago at a tasting I'm hosting Sunday - it turned out pretty to be a pretty darn good beer - I much prefer it over Maui's Coconut Porter which I really. I then plan to help a friend to brew (who bought my first all grain setup) on Monday - we're doing a belgian wit. I then have plans to make a citrus saison of some sort on my system if I can't squeeze it in after the brew with him. Fermenting and kegging space has opened up quite a bit in the last few weeks as I've been doing quite a bit more drinking of the homebrew than producing. Cheers!
     
  30. Currently cleaning up from brewing a strong English ale.
     
  31. I'm about to bottle a Belgian dark strong.

    Chalk up one Hefe in the fermenter and a stirplate full of 099.
     
  33. Brewed a Belgian inspired porter with special B, brown sugar and 1762 yeast.

    I think they are already sold out at the brewery. Call Beverage Warehouse in Winooski, Corner Market in Richmond and Hunger Mountain Co-op in Montpelier. If you've never had it before and just want to taste it, go to Prohibition Pig or the brewery in Waterbury; they have it on draft.

    You are sending a bottle to Marquis, right??

    My starter wasn't ready; I'll brew the saison next week:(
     
  37. not brewing yet... wrapping up previous batches. dry-hopped an IPA (celebration clone) last weekend...5 gal batch.

    how long should I let it sit in primary with the cascade and centennial on it (.25 ounces of each)?

    Tempted to add some more of each for another week, then bottle.

    Brewed a slightly amended version of the King Henry clone recipe that was discussed on this forum. Had a few "worst case scenario" moments (e.g., false bottom came loose which led to a completely stuck sparge requiring me to pour my mash tun into my kettle, clear the clog, and pour back into the mash tun), but I ended up hitting my target gravity exactly and I think this will result in an excellent beer. Now enjoying a BCBCS to celebrate a solid, yet sometimes aggravating brew day.
