I was hoping to have an alt ready for the first game, but read my thread from this morning and you'll find that what I made is not gonna come close. That said, It's a toss up between a porter, stout, or belgian pale ale.
Bottled - Swamp Water Mead
Kegged - Ryerish Red
Fermenting - Plinius Maior

So true. I'm went to Kansas State and we're supposed to have a good team this year but I'm sure i'll be disappointed at some point. Maybe I should start brewing a strong IPA to be ready by late November.
I’ll be brewing a series of brews that I typically would have already started (I’ve had some things pop up that have pushed my summer/fall brew schedule back):
1. Octoberfest with WLP029
2. Kolsch with Ofest cake
3. Dunkel with Kolsch cake
Usually I would do these in order of 2, 1, 3 but if I don’t change it up I might miss October!
As far as serving, it will probably be out of growlers and/or 2 or 3 liter soda bottles. I learned my lesson the hard way last year at PSU tailgates – NO KEGS. Cop came and told us that the keg better be gone by the time he made his rounds. So we used a spare 5 gallon igloo water cooler as a defacto draft dispenser and chugged that beer before it all became too flat. I’m sure that wasn’t within the intent of the no-keg rules but then again it’s not the worst thing PSU police/admin should be worrying about….
