Default Because your mom's all on my junk...

Seriously...I'm not brewing this week because I made a promise to myself that I was taking a hiatus for awhile. I've been brewing an average of 16.5 gallons per month over that past 10 months or so. And it's caught up to me. I have way too much beer. Stacks and stacks. At least 20 cases.

So...yeah, short answer: I need to make a dent in the mountain of beer that I already have. I did bottle 2 batches that I have been meaning to get to this weekend...a barleywine that I brewed in January, and a special bitter that is just badass. I delabeled several cases of empties, and consolidated my backstock stacks. I cleaned up the brewhouse and organized my stuff. It was a productive day! When I do get back to brewing, I think I'll make myself another porter.

Spent the friggin' weekend with my in-laws. Next weekend I'll br brewing though...you'd better believe it! The question is "What shall I brew"?? Another hefe? A hoppy beer? A belgian? Hmmm... I have a couple of decent strains of yeast sitting around and I'd like to use one of those instead of buying a new one.

Any good ideas for 1007 or 1056? I've been thinking about doing something WWII-ish and mixing the two strains and styles. Maybe an APA with wheat and a mix of german and american hops.

Too much beer on hand, about 20 gals worth in bottles. And I'm moving overseas soon. Had to go on hiatus It's been tough.

I'm also losing weight so drinking WAY less beer. Haven't had a full home brew in 1.5 weeks, but I'm down 8 pounds, so gonna keep it up for a while.

I had dixie band gigs on both Sat. and Sun. in the middle of the afternoon. Add in various chores and no brewing for me . I hope to brew on Memorial day and then the following weekend so I'll have my 3 planned beers ready for my pig roast mid-July. The Kolsch went in the keg Sat. morning, and my Loose Cannon clone went to secondary (and dry hopped) so while I didn't get to brew, I did do beer activities

I'm going to brew as soon as I get home from work tomorrow, 5:30ish sharp! No time this weekend, too many chores, but tomorrow is my time!

I'm going to be brewing a PM version of the bird's murder in the red barn. I'm going to call it Homicide on the Range -IIRA
