    I'm not, but I do have 15 gallons of my house beer to bottle, La Chouffe IPA clone. Good timing too, I'm just about out of the last batch.

    Building another STC 1000 for my incubator and to do a club Tech Talk on the build in a week.

    Also brewing the single mash / split boils Saison, German Hefe, and Berlinerweisse that I was going to do last weekend but never got to. My grains are milled. My SN Kellerweisse starter is ready. My Cascade Lacto starter is ready. My captured from Arlington air Saison strain from Jasper Yeast is ready. Fermentation fridge is clean, bleached, and ready. Need to make sure the burner is ready.

    Also going to step up some Kolsch slurry for the Berliner off the last runnings, as well as make 8 100ml starters from the last runnings to step up my Brett strains for my upcoming 14 gallon wine barrel Belgian Blonde (will also get Cascade Lacto).

    Double 10 gal batch of English Strong Ale, both will get a 3 hour boil. Should be a long day, but fairly easy. Planning on some oak staves soaked in bourbon additions before kegging.

    Bottling a bastard and a half ale tonight. Brewing an Oktoberfest ale and ipa tomorrow. Still deciding on the hops for the ipa. Might pick up something I haven't tried before. About to do a little research on Wakatu, Motueka and Zythos before I go to the lhbs at lunch.

    Brewing up another IPA I've been tinkering with, and probably a brown ale as well.

    Going to try and have the brown done by the time I rack the RIS out of the barrel, and then toss the brown in there behind it for a little while to keep the barrel full.

    Other than that- maybe some keg cleaning, and kegging my saison.

    We finally nailed an IPA recipe we really like.
    Going to try and replicate it tomorrow.

    We used WLP001 for the first batch, but there is a new local yeast supplier in town (can't remember the name right now), so with this 10 gallon batch, one carboy will get WLP001 and the other will get this supplier's equivalent to see if they're the same. Just for curiosity's sake.

    I've found that cream ales really start to taste great after about 3 1/2 months. Great way to end summer.

    Vienna malt + ultra SMaSH blonde ale. Nothing special, just an easy drinker. Gotta use up that bag of Weyermann Vienna and Ultra is just a great hop.

    Another saison in an attempt to iron out my all grain system. Same recipe as my last one, hoping to repeat all my measures... Then onward!

    No brewing this weekend, even though I really should be. I'm running out of brew! I might do some hard cider tomorrow, and check the gravity on last weeks brew.

    Cheers!

    If you don't mind me asking, what's your recipe? I've been wanting to brew a cream ale for a while now.

    Thanks!

    I brewed a Rauchbier today. Just waiting to pitch the yeast. I want the beer at 45* when I pitch and the chiller could only get it down to 52*.

    Double brew weekend for me!
    3 gallon (final volume) DIPA that will get a mango, a cantaloupe and grapefruit zest in secondary instead of dry hopping. I brewed this for my honeymoon a few years ago and wifey is finally getting her dream of the rebrew.
    also doing a 5 gallon Paters/Taffel bier that will come in around 3.7-4.0%. not sure exactly b/c i am BIAB'ing it and haven't done that in a while. Hopping with Saaz and Amarillo and going with WYEAST 1762 (abbey II)

    No brewing, but I'll keg a bitter tomorrow. I also need to do some work on my kegging set-up - add a manifold so I can serve more than 2 at a time.

    A Belgian Tripel from leftovers. Extract with steeping grains.
    I had 6lbs. of Pilsner LME, 1lb. of extra light DME, 1 lb. of cara pils, 2oz. of Czec Saaz, and a tube of Whitelabs WLP500, which I could have boiled up, but...what the hell, go big or go home, right?. I bought 3 more lbs. of light DME, 1lb. of clear candy syrup, and another tube of WLP500. According to the Brewers Friend calculator I needed more Hops for bittering, and when I opened the cooler, the first thing staring me in the face was an Oz. of Citra pellets. Sold! (I'm sure they use lots of Citra in Belgium) Now that I sit here looking at the grocery list, this better be good, because it cost me a fortune. Good thing I didn't have to buy it all at once. (O.G. 1.084)

    Is it me, or has anyone else noticed that the views on this thread and others are through the roof. This one usually gets around 500 & now its about to break 10,000? Thoughts?

    Seems like there has recently been an influx of new folks on the forum, but I wouldn't think it was that much.
