Have a cider in the primary right now. Plan to do a Millstream Schild Brau clone once my primary is empty.

It is fun funking around.

Just Bottled my White House Honey Porter and racked my Smoked Porter, so primaries are empty. To brew very soon:

  • Fireside Ale
  • Christmas Wit

I've got an American Amber, Bavarian Hefeweizen and a Rasberry Wheat in fermentors. I'm hoping to do a RyePA tommorow and and a Vanilla Porter this weekend. That would give me 25 gallons at one time which is the most I've ever had fermenting at once.

Great idea, having a themed brew day! Could be blue, black, whatever...

Primary - Spiced Christmas Ale, will be transferring to secondary, probably on Thanksgiving

Also, 10 gal. of cider which I just put into buckets over the weekend. They've got a way to go.

Will be brewing the White House honey ale over the weekend, to enjoy on Inauguration Day.

Revvy's Vienna Lager (with a little modification to the hopping) is lagering away in the fridge in the garage, sitting at 34°F according to the thermometer this morning.

An unnamed doppelbock using rinsed and re-pitched WLP833 yeast from the Vienna is just starting to burp the blow-off tube in the brand new chest freezer.

Sitting next to it in a growler is half a gallon of what I guess is a bock. I had some issues with LME settling to the bottom of the kettle for the doppelbock, so my initial dilution was too much. Drew off half a gallon of 1.061 and dumped the good stuff (plus the trub) from the kettle into the big fermentor and got it up to 1.074 (or perhaps a bit more if it was still badly mixed). Although I was zonked at 2:30am while dealing with that, I had the foresight to save both that and some of the leftover slurry that I'd rinsed, so last night I realized I might as well mix 'em up and try to ferment them. The "airlock" is a real beauty made from a blow-off hose, a rubber glove with its finger cut off, and a couple rubber bands.....
