Default First annual "MA-VA-lous Brewfest"!

This Saturday!

The_bird and family are heading down this way Friday--we are going to start "festing" Friday night, with a nice brew session on Saturday and then some additional (and hardcore) festing on Saturday night.

I open the invitation to anyone else who wants to trek over here Saturday. Plans for this didn't really become "solid" until about 2 weeks ago so I'm sorry for the short notice, but the invite is out there anyway.

I'm putting a Boston Butt on the smoker (and finishing with Brewtopia's now famous Naked Spur Smoked Porter Beer-B-Q Sauce) Saturday morning and then hopefully we can get brewing well before lunch. Then the rest of Saturday evening is reserved for "Bratwursts and Shillelaghs" and sampling of some fine BBQ with some most excellent commercial and home brews. I can't wait!

We'll have the webcam going--shoot me an IM to korrea4 at yahoo dot com if you want access Saturday during the brew and sampling festivities!

Undecided as of now. I think I'm going to try to talk him into a big citrusey IPA.

Well the cam is on...not much activity though. Shoot me an IM and you can watch the boringness as I await the distinguished guest brewer.

Sorry bout that...we'll hopefully be more alert tonight.

We are into the brewday right now...bird came up with a great idea last night to do a big Russian Imperial Stout...so we did up a killer recipe this morning and mashed in at 10:45. Dead nuts on the mash temp and now we are trying to stay out of the oppressive heat.

Also got a Boston Butt on the smoker...can't wait!!!!

Got to tell you folks - Bratwursts & Shillelaghs is un-freakin'-believable. We've got a big honkin' Russian Imp Stout boiling, the pork butt is smokin', and life is G-U-D good. This beer is gonna kick some major ass; recipe will follow.

Missed our target efficiency by a little, so this is ending up as almost a 3 hour boil. Oh well....still having a freaking blast!

It is HOT outside....
