    No brewing for me. But I will be bottling an ipa with motueka/zythos/galaxy and an imperial stout.

    I really should get to kegging my saison, I want to naturally carbonate it and that will take a couple of weeks to hit its stride so I need to plan my kegerator space accordingly.
    Possibly dealing with some wine I have fermenting as well. No actual brewing though. I want to make a couple of beers in the coming weeks if I get a chance, looking at a few different session strength beers.

    WLP 585 seems to have been delayed until recently; finally getting late start on my yearly bunch of saisons.

    I'm brewing an IPA for the first brew in my new house. The water has me a bit worried.

    I believe I am going to try to make a raisin beer. Something like Raison D'Extra, if all goes well.

    Not me. All brewing activities on hold while I'm in Colorado. The brews I have going will be just fine till I get back. In the interim, I've hit Trinity, Bierwerks, and Royal gorge, with Ute, Colorado Mountain brewery, and Tommyknockers coming up! We'll see what else I can manage to squeeze in!

    We'll take another whack at making an interesting Brown Ale this weekend with Vienna, Victory, C60 and a little chocolate malt.

    was going to make a Lager but didn't ever get around to making a starter, so I'll do a Belgian-esq Brew with the T-58 pkg I have in there. or maybe I'll make that starter tonight and brew Monday or Tuesday? Or Maybe I'll brew both...hmmm

    Brewing right now actually. I am making a lambic. Currently I am making one of these bad boys every 6 months (this is the 3rd in the series), I hope to get a nice line of carboys that are constantly hitting the right age for blending and bottling.

    Yeah, brewed a Saison 3 weeks ago that was supposed to use 585...too late.

    Enjoy it!

    I need to brew for NCHF in Sept. Playing it by ear. Have a bag of Vienna malt to finish up, some miscellaneous crystal malts, a boat load of C and related hops, and Wyeast West Coast IPA growing. Signs point to some IPA.

    I just brewed 5 gallons of the style I swore I never wanted 5 gallons of--Nut Brown. It smells amazing and it was a smooth brewday overall. I'm going to brew again on Monday, hopefully.

    Depending on wife and kids either tomorrow or next weekend, I want to do a partigyle Old Ale and Pale Ale, planning on some brett for the Old Ale. Any suggestions for a recipe? I did HB42's Old Ale 3 or 4 years ago and really liked it (Marris Otter and a little bit of C60 and Chocolate malt).

    Interested in hearing how your brown turns out. I have only brewed 3 browns and they have probably been my least favorite batches. I really like the nutty quality of some browns and none of mine had it. I was actually looking up clones for Bells best brown this morning because that is one that I like. I am planning to add some victory malt next time, cut back on C hops and brew another this fall.

    Brewing my first saison. I will be using wyeast 3711 French saison. The rest of the recipe came from Brewing Classic Styles. Can't wait to see how this turns out. The weather still isn't cooperating here in NC but I have some make shift accommodations.



    Cheers!

    I'm brewing a clone of Midnight Sun's Cohoho. I brewed this earlier this year and I am making a couple of adjustments. This beer (as did the last one) is going to a festival. I'll brew up a batch for me later this year.

    Not brewing, but I just finished bottling a weizenbock. Based on a small sample I think it turned out pretty well, but may be a bit hoppier than intended.

    Time for a homebrew. Yeast has been pitched, Still have some clean up to do.

    Minor recipe changes -- Weyermanm pils, and 20% of the hops were Hersbrucker; the rest were supposedly Hallertauer Mittelfruh. They were supposed to be Mittelfruh but were just labeled Hallertauer.

    I brewed a robust porter, with lots of roasted flavor, today and I am going to throw in some cocoa nibs later.

    Al, glad to hear things are going well! Sorry we couldnt get things together this weekend though.
    as for me, brewed my first monster today. Imperial stout, og 1.113. Hit it with oxygen, and had 2 starters, one of wlp004 and one of wlp001. Its currently blowing off fucking hard. I put 5 gallons in a 8.5 vitners harvest bucket. I thought the headspace w poo uld be adequate. Wrong.lol.

    Brewed up 10.2 gallons of koelsch (normally do 11 gallon batches, but a bad crush led to a low pre-boil gravity reading, dictating a smaller batch to hit intended O.G.).

    Also kegged up a sour that's been aging for right about a year with a vial of White Labs Sour Mix and dregs from a 2012 Avery sour (can't remember which off the top of my head) and a 2012 Cantillon (also can't remember which right now...it's written down, but I'm at work). We call this beer Dr. Dregs, and it's a sour mammajamma.

    I have a (co-ed) baby shower this weekend for my first baby due in September. My wife insisted that we have a keg of our jasmine ale on tap, and it's ready to go. I hit it with some gelatin Saturday, as it's normally a little cloudy. Trying to make it pretty.
