Boldly brew with ingredients that no man has brewed with before.

uh...

It's probably bad form for a noob to say this to an esteemed maestro such as yourself, but...

RDWHAHB?

Ask God. Maybe He'll know what to do.

The Brewing Network played a great talk from Vinnie Cilurzo about sour beers, wine barrel s and Brettanomyces.

I just got a nice brett culture going from a bottle of Orval. I am now spiking every beer where I'm not totally satisfied.

I went to his talk at the nations in Denver and got one of his baggies of wood chips soaked in his culture. Thanks for the link. I have the power point of his talk if you are interested.

I haven't brewed in a while, and while I want to, the heat keeps me from missing it too much. Either make something really big and unusual, something to cellar for a while, or don't stress and just enjoy the fruits of your labors until it starts to cool off a bit.

It's also about the right time to start brewing big, sweet stuff for winter. Dude and I just brewed a Russian Imperial Stout the other weekend, I'm thinking about doing a smoked barleywine ("Bottom Of The World") once I climb back on the horse.

Start a dojo. I would gladly clean the filthiest fermentation funk in exchange for room, board, and lessons from the roshi.

It has been hotter then I care to recount and the brews are not real happy. Maybe it is time to dig a beer cellar. I don't know.

Suggestions will be appreciated.
The heat is starting to hit me too.

Hard to get motivated to brew when it is almost 90 (with 80% humidity) when I am ready to start, forecasted a 10% chance of rain, and it starts pouring when I am trying to sparge. Yeah thats nice. Oh well, I think I might start brewing at night, in the dark, while drinking heavily (I can't drink at 8am), and hope I don't get bug spray in the wort.

Make one of these only call it a beer cave:

I'm sure the heat doesn't help. I know I probably won't brew until the heat subsides a bit.
Maybe New Belgium has an extra oak barrel they will let you have.
