    What's everyone up to this weekend? I'll huddle up next to the turkey fryer with my Berliner that I meant to brew a month ago. I soo don't want to do a decoction to keep the mash warm for 3 days. I'm also going to try out my a maze n pellet smoker on some salmon and possibly a few pounds of Munich malt. My roommates are making fun of me because they think I'm addicted to gerbil pellets. It's time to cut them off the beer supply until they learn their lesson.

    Brewing my first all grain brew with a friend. Its a Zoe clone. Got some Weez, Red Wheelbarrow and of course Zoe to drink as we brew. Should be a solid Sat night!

    I got ingredients for a pale ale, don't have the day scheduled yet. I was able to get all my brewing equipment moved a couple hundred miles from my hometown to my new place. turns out I can boil the full volume on an electric so I'm keeping with AG brewing. the new HB supply is great. I've just got to make a starter 2 days in advance.

    Bottling my Zombie Dust clone. Have 9 gallons to get through. Currently have it cold crashing to try to get the hops to sink from the dry hopping.

    I'm doing the first in a series of three batches to sour (I need to meet someone with a bigger system), the goal of which will be to fill my 15 gallon barrel for a solera project.

    80% 2-row
    10% Vienna
    5% Flaked wheat
    5% Oats
    Mashed hot (159-ish)
    OG 1.056

    Fuggles (FWH) to ~ 10 IBUs

    Mixed ferment with WL530, bottle dregs

    No brewing, bottling off the last if 2 kegs, then pegging my Winter Warmer and Imperial Stout from Teach-A-Friend day. Imperial Stout is getting Elijah Craig and Oak.

    Went with the Mexican Chocolate Imperial Porter last weekend, so it's the Mangrove Jack's Belgian Ale yeast saison this week. But then again, all my hops arrived the other day, so maybe an IPA is in order... I'll decide closer to brewday.

    Also bottling a brown rye saison.

    I've never actually had the stuff. I made a clone a few weeks back anyway. If Citra doesn't taste like onion or BO to you, then it's an amazing beer. I hear a lot of bitching, but I'm just racing to the bottom of my keg. Soo Good.

    Some of the first brews I made were heavy-handed porters. I just called them baltic, but I think I like your term better.

    Absolutely love the beer. Its gotten relatively easy to get in the Chicago area, so I would try to find a trade if you havent tried it before.

    This batch is for my wedding in a month. Giving everyone a homebrew for the wedding favors. Half the bottle are ZD clone, half a coffee stout.

    Bottling two ipas. Brewing a winter warmer and the APA IPA.

    That's a pretty bold move for a wedding crowd.

    I like the term Imperial Porter over Baltic because its completely open ended. To me, a Baltic Porter is a specific thing, and this beer isn't that. More of a not so roasty imperial stout.

    No brewing, I will probably be tending to the Chocolate Stout I made and maybe racking it onto the once used pappy oak from the RIS I did back.. Had the secondary in the fermentation freezer still with a little beer covering them.. Might be tempted to dump the stout on top of it and add some vanilla beans... I'm hesitant though for whatever reason.

    Need to bottle my RIS off the keg, but I'm again, too lazy. Maybe a weekend when my wife is working again and I'm stuck at home with the kids and unable to go anywhere.

    looking at long range weather, this maybe final brew session until spring...so probably my kitchen sink beer. Taking a look at my stock it looks to be something in the pale ale/ipa category since I don't have any dark grains in the mix, just honey, aromatic, carastan & flaked barley left in the specialty grain bin...have a packet of 1028 left as well, so pieces are coming together nicely.

    I have a Tripel on the docket for this weekend. Probably my last brew for the year :slight_frown:

    No brewing for me this weekend. I will be racking a chocolate peanut butter Baltic Porter to a keg with cacao nibs, racking a chocolate Baltic Porter onto cacao nibs and espresso beans (plan to bottle half and then bourbon soaked oak to the last half), adding oak to a 100% brettanomyces fermented golden ale with 8 IBU's and 100+ ICU's (at least how I interpret ICU's),

    Mid-mash on an American Rye Bitter. And enjoying a homebrewed IPA while the little one naps.

    I'll rack my porter to kegs today so I need to brew something I can pitch on that yeast cake. It's an oatmeal stout-OG 1.066 with Goldings at 60, 20 and flameout. Tomorrow I'll do a barley wine to pitch on a S-04 yeast cake.

    Testing carbonation/flavors on a batch of dark IPA that's been tempting me sorely the past couple weeks it's been in bottles. Sunday I'm aiming to brew something that will be a good Christmas season beer-heading to my local shop Saturday to see what I can find. Hoping to pick up either a warmly malty pale or red (as I'm a complete sucker for Sierra Nevada Celebration) or something on the stouter end to stick to my bones against the cold.

    I'll be brewing a maibock - esque lager, with sterling and crystal hops. Yeast strain is Wyeast 2007 (Budweiser?)

    Finally kicked my sour I had on tap, both excited and sad. Sad in that it was possibly one of the best beers I have brewed, excited in that it is going to be replaced with a 100% Brett IPA, time to keg that up and dry hop it.

    Added Gelatin to my pumpkin ale that's been in the primary for 3 weeks and plan to brew a black IPA tomorrow with my new 10 gallon tall boy kettle!

    Will be revisiting a robust porter recipe.
    Last version really carbonated, want to fix it.

    Cheers
