Default What are you brewing/drinking on the 4th

America's birthday is coming up, and what better way to celebrate than by brewing/drinking beer. So:

- Who'll be brewing on the 4th, and what are you making?
- Is your style/beer name especially patriotic?

Sadly, No 4th brew day for me. Guess I will just have to be content smoking a brisket, a few chickens, some sausage and drinking previously produced home brew. I know, I know, try not to shed a tear for me.

I think the bigger question is, what won't I be drinking? Last 4th, I ended up dancing in the street over top of fountain fireworks, then stumbling home yelling ʇıɥs at random people...or so SWMBO tells me.

Let's see...here's my checklist:

  • Vinho Verde (LOTS!)
  • Fresh-squeezed margaritas
  • Hefe
  • Bourbon, rocks
  • Some bottle of awesome red wine
  • German Lager
  • Scotch (maybe, depends on what's being poured)
  • By this point, I won't remember anyway...so...bloody mary?

the american pale ale should be ready by then, but prolly suck down a bunch of bmc with the family...

might make something with the irish ale yeast cake, but not sure yet.

Probably drinking commercial, to avoid drinking all my HB while it's still green. Have to see what looks good at the bottle shop.

If I brew, it'll either be a decocted hefe, or a mini-batch of Cheese's CCA. Probably the CCA, since I don't think my primaries will be free by Wed...

Brewing: nothing. No more brewing until we move. Too messy, and I need to be able to leave on a moment's notice.

Brewing related: bottling my weizen, racking my wine, racking my mead (and maybe adding lactose or honey to sweeten it).

Otherwise: cleaning, cleaning, cleaning.

I brewed a Hefe just for the 4th.

I also have my Sour wheat with sour cherry ready, plus a huge list of other HB to pick from. Nobody will be bored that's for sure!

I made the hotdogs on Saturday, stayed up till 1 AM (seems like it is always the case with them) getting the internal temp to 160...takes forever in a 170 oven, but you have to do it that way...also homemade kraut, chili, mustard. I am going to make some onion pickle up too. Serving it up with potato salad and some other stuff (tbd). Plus imma grab 2 bags of littlenecks to steam. It is shaping up. The following day it'll be ribs and corn prolly.

I'll peak at my Oktoberfest ferment and drink a few of my home brews.
