About to wrap up the boil on an all Summit Pale Ale. Can't wait to cool this beast with the hot as hell groundwater we've got here in Houston. Yippy!

Perfect weather here for brewing.

I'll be brewing a Pliny the Elder clone for the third time.

It is my patriotic duty to make a good homebrew!
I will be making a 5 gal Landlord clone shortly. It's a hot day in Southern New England, but I can't pass up this opportunity.
Happy 4th, Happy brewing.

Hey fellow Houstonian! My water is too hot to get the wort down to ideal pitching temp too. Finally after 7 yrs I made a new wort chiller last night so I can use the old one as a pre-chiller. I'll be trying it out for the first time with this batch today.

brewing an all simcoe pale ale right now... maris otter, a little crystal 15 and rye. and 3 oz. of simcoe (all after 30 min.)... it'll be dry hopped with another 2 oz. of simcoe. inspired by russian river's all simcoe pale ale (should be similar except w/ rye) - and a bit drier. going for crisp, clean and hoppy.

my fiance moved in last month and this is the first time i've had to brew in a month... we woke up this morning and she said "you better start brewing"... gotta love her.

Brewing an Imperial Blond Ale that I call "Stone the Crows".

This will also be my maiden closed-system pressurized fermentation.

I got it down to 84 with a 30 plate chiller, so I put it in the ferm chamber without pitching yeast, I'll let it cool in there for a couple hours then pitch some yeast. It's what I usually have to do. Good luck with the new toys, sounds like fun!

No brewing today. Both my primary and secondaries are full. I do have some ribs on and will be grabbing a beer shortly. Might even plan my next brew. I'm thinking a porter.
