Default Big Brew Weekend - FRIDAY the 13th!

So who is brewing this weekend, and what are you brewing?

Wifey and I will do a 5 gal AG of Oatmeal Stout Friday AM, a 5 gal AG Honey Brown clone (not as much honey as the original) Friday PM. Then a 5 gal extract batch on Sat or Sun of a Northern Brewer American Lager kit.

Never had enough temp control to lager, but I now have a 52 bottle wine chiller w/digital temp control from 40-68 degrees!

Then since I am off Thanksgiving week (and she is unemployed!) we will be doing 10 gal AG of an APA, 10 gal AG of a American Brown ( half will be turned into somewhat of a New Belgium Frambozen clone) and at least one more TBD.

So whats everyone else doing over the next week or two?

I'm doing a Friday the 13th brew day as well! I'll be making a "Mostly Mash" coffee stout.

humann- During tax season I work about 3 months straight with very little "extra" time, so whatever I make between now and mid Jan has to last us until the next big brew day on Aptil 16th!

And another reason for all of the stockpiling, my only New Years resolution is to drink only homebrew for as long as possible...no commercial brews at home....

I'll likely be brewing a brown ale, but not sure if Friday or Sat. A friend is coming over Sat, so I'll probably hold off until then Maybe spend Friday afternoon getting ready.

I really should brew 2 beers though. I got lots of hops and I could stand to have an IPA on tap...

Today I look right down, right down to the ground, there's nothing in between to break by fall. I'm blue for you, and I don't know what to do.

I was gonna do Ed's Robust Porter on Sunday but my order didn't ship so looks like I may have to push it back to next week sometime. Oh well. You all have fun brewing!
