I have a couple of friends and family visiting for the 4th and we are waking up at the butt crack of dawn and having a Red, White and Blue BrewFest.
5 gal of Wrinkled Kilt Irish Red
5 gal of White Dragon Hefe
5 gal of Blueberry Centennial Blonde

If the day goes as planned, we are starting at 5am, boil times are planned at 7, 8:30 and 9:45
and with 4 of us cleaning up along the way, we are planning on cracking the first brew around 11am when the cleanup is close to complete.
96 bottles of Blonde, Brown and Pale Ale to complete the day.

Girlfriend's mother's birthday is the Fourth, so all day will be spent helping with the grill and chilling in the pool. Work gave us Friday off, so I'll be brewing a Black IPA on the fifth (that still counts). Going to do this http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f69/heavenly-scourge-black-iipa-141308/

I was excited before, but after reading three years of compliments I am super pumped to try this beer out.

Gonna be 108 degree's on the fourth, and 100+ through the weekend. Doing a Porter on the 4th and a milk stout over the weekend (making the starter on Thursday)

I don't have a controlled fermentation chamber yet, so I am forced to brew my favorite beers in the summer months.

Brewing an Irish Red on the 4th. Possibly bottling my Surly Furious clone, watching my coffee stout bubble and hopefully getting my champagne (real champagne, not the champagne of beers) into bottles. Going to be a busy weekend.
