I'd probably do my Amber this weekend too, but my wife would kill me! We've got other stuff to do this weekend anyways, and I'm a bit short on cash as well. Next week...

I'ts more like I'm going to need to restock the kegerator, all 4 kegs!

The last several brews I've made are either to give away or save for a while:
Wit - For my dad for his birthday later this month
Belgian - Christmas gifts next year
Barleywine - Going to age a year
Blonde - For a friend

Meanwhile, all of the kegs are getting low. The stout is replacing the porter, the amber will replace the red, and I'm going to do a kolsch to replace the hefeweizen. I just want to get the stout done before the keg blows so it can go right in it.

I'm bottling my first brew tomorrow. I've been cleaning bottles tonight. Remind me to never, ever use Amstel Light bottles again!!

I'd like to go ahead and rack my Red Wheat to my secondary so I can make something else, but I'm thinking it's too early. It's only been one week and I'm still seeing activity in the airlock - about a bubble every 10 seconds or so. There is a very thick, dense-looking head on it still. Is that normal? My first batch didn't look anything like that after a week....

It's still fementing, leave it be. I suspect the reason the krausten looks different is the wheat. In any case, bubbles = active fermenation = leave it alone for a while.

GRABASS is getting together tomorrow at Nosnhojr's house. Nosnhojr is brewing a Maibock, Walker is doing a Bohemian Pilsner & I am doing a California Common. We're hoping that Baron Von Beegee, our Lager Consultant, can sneak out of the house for a few hours.

I think I may do 6 gallon of carrot wine and a gallon of potato wine.

Another keg of Haus Ale. The last one lasted only 17 days. I'll probably start another 5 or 10 gallons of Apfelwein. Can't have enough of that kegged, carbed & ready.

Nothing today, I'm still waiting for Ed's apfelwein to finish, it's only been two weeks, and I've got a american pale ale in the secondary. Today I'm concentrating on putting together my first all grain system.
