Default Two beers in queue

I've got my mead brewing and I'm going to grab myself 2 more fermenters (ported better bottles -- dropped my glass carboy cleaning after my first beer). I figure I can start a beer on the 15th and 16th; primary 2 weeks and bottle; secondary the other beer after bottling the first, onto hops; bottle that on December 6; and then have them carbed, conditioned, and chilled by 1/1/2009.

The two recipes I'm using are one I developed with help from... everyone... and one I interpreted from Extreme Brewing (which didn't list the color of any of the malts or sugars in the recipe, for some reason... just liquid malt extract, crystal malt, belgian candi sugar, etc, not light/dark/amber/40L....).

My recipe is below, something I started working on abstractly from grain descriptions, and then upped the gravity and hop bill on after having (getting drunk from) a Dogfish Head 90 minute IPA:

Total Grain Weight: 10.00 lb
----------------------------
Steep grains as desired (30-60 minutes)


Notes:
------
Took some liberties with some stuff. Crystal blend, shade of malt extract,
blend of candi sugars. Also proper amount for molasses is 8 ounces; for
maple syrup, 8-10 ounces added 3 days into fermentation.
These should be ready to go with me on a few day's trip, and probably get me drunk. I'm still a little confused on that but hey, I like beer, I'll deal with the side effects. (Ok, so rum won't get me drunk unless I drink a lot of it, but beer will easy. WTF?)

Howdy :-D

Nice to see another mazer in Baltimore! It looks like you haven't been around much lately, or at least not posting, but if you still frequent the place, it's always nice to have folks in the neighborhood to trade recipes, etc., with.
