Default Anyone Else Brewing This Afternoon?

Even though I've been off for about 10 days and still have off til the 5th, this is the first chance I've actually had to brew.

Today I'm doing a 2.5 gallon experimental batch of "Mole' Porter" a modification of Biermuncher's Black Pearl Porter with Mexican Chocolate (Abualita brand Mexican hot Chocolate/cinnamon disks) and my homemade chile' powder.

I've got 40 minutes til sparge time...

Anyone else doing it today?

No brewing for me today, but I just made up my starter for my Twisted Oak IPA. Think I'll FWH this one, still tinkering with the amounts to keep the IBUs in check. Sunday will be brewday, by God!

Hopefully later.

Actually, I had planned to brew today at long last (been almost three months). Of course, the wind is blowing 50 mph, which would make being in the garage rather difficult considering the wind is blowing straight into it, and I got called in to work.

And I get to go to NJ tomorrow and Toronto on Thursday. If I don't brew next week, I may do something not so nice.

I just bottled my first batch of Edwort's Apfelwein. I should have taken his advice and started another batch shortly after the first. I am not much of a wine drinker though so I was hesitant. First indications are ... I think I'm gonna' like it!

Not toady, but I'm working out a plan for brewing on New Year's Day. In fact, I may brew twice on New Year's. One 5 gallon batch of Citrus Wheat and a 5 gallon batch of my experimental soon-to-be house ale. Brew on!

Depends on whether you consider UConn-Buffalo in the International Bowl interesting.

Most people would say no.

You may have to. Given your silence on what I sent you, I'm guessing my beers are far inferior to yours. And that's as it should be.

Or you could just take my kids and my job for a couple days so I can bang out a couple brews.

Honestly, they're still sitting in the fridge! I'll go pour the orange wheat right now.
