Default I've got a few bucks and some $$$$

So in the winter I usually take whatever leftover vacation I have. This year I'm on a 2 week on 1 week off schedule, I work in the oilfields and we have no completion activity mostly due to low nat gas prices, so I'm getting the Christmas Holidays off followed by my week off, followed by a weeks vacation.

It's only been a few days and I'm already bored, just can't seem to find anything to do since it's winter. I did get a 3,200 dollar Christmas bonus, so I figured why not buy some grain!!

AAgghhhh I just can't think of anything to brew. I'm drinking a New Castle clone right now and finishing up a porter, have an IPA, Cream Stout and Bass clone on the pipeline as well.

Anybody got any ideas? I'm in that blah mood where nothing sounds good. Today I didn't leave the house or do crap besides jogging. Think I'll have a beer and look at some recipes while I wait on some replies.

Thanks Guys.

Next for me is Biermunchers Centennial Blonde. It's a great brew to have on hand

Maybe break out of the box completely and make a gruit?

I've always wanted to make cider, can you buy kits for it?

How about a Chai Milk Stout, Juniper Rye or a Belgian Tripple?

Find yourself some unpasteurized apple cider in the grocery store(might have to look in a hippie market) add yeast and shazaam cider....

Made this recipe for my deer hunt and it was fantastic. I did find it a bit light on the juniper though. May add a bit more next time:

It doesn't necessarily even need to be unpasteurized. As long as it's free of potassium sorbate and potassium metabisulfite your should be good.

Most of the juice I use in cider is apple juice from concentrate, water, and ascorbic acid. It has been pasteurized. The cider will be better if you use high quality cider as opposed to excessively filtered apple juice.

If your LHBS has some, it's a good idea to use some pectin enzyme too.
