What's on the boil for this weekend? I know the weekend is still a couple of days off, but it's a holiday and I know some folks will be taking days off.

I've got Friday and Monday off, in addition to the 4th. On Friday, the girlfriend and I will be at Summerfest in Milwaukee, but on Saturday, we plan to brew a new recipe - Rhoobarb's Best IPA. It's 77 IBUs and will use Chinook, Mt. Hood and Centennial.

I'm really looking forward to it - I haven't brewed anything in eight weeks! I’ve just been too busy. I have some more free time coming up, so I’ll have to make up for lost time.

Im going to attempt my favorite extract recipe for a Nut Brown, but go All Grain this time around. Then I got some buddies coming into town, and hopefully we will have decided on which Pumpkin Ale were going to go with by then.

My last two brews have been single-infusion ales with dry yeast, therefore (and since it's a long weekend) I'm planning a double (or triple) decocted Oktoberfest. Depends on what I let myself talk me into.

I have been on fourlough from work and wouldn't it be my luck that I was just recalled and have to report to work at 11pm Friday night. It's been years since I have worked 3rd shift and I still don't know what my off days will be. That being said, I doubt I will get to brew or anything else this weekend. I do have ine I need to transfer tomorrow.

Hope everyone has a good 4th weekend!!!!!

Brewing a Saison Dupont Clone once the ingredients arrive. I have my yeast and some vienna malt here waiting for their buddies to get boiled and ferment.

I'm in AL now and going to FL for the weekend, but I'll probably be in IL for the 4th.

Not certain about brewing, but I'll be racking for sure.

I got 3 brews conditioning already.

I'm brewing an IPA for the second time, but using Wyeast 1272 instead of 1056. No complaints with the first batch, just interested in seeing the impact of the different yeast.

Hopefully saturday I'll be brewing a Belgian Wit if my supplies make it from Austin Homebrew, then Sunday is Summerfest (seeing NIN), then on the 4th I may brew a Nut Brown Ale. I'll also be driving a car in Racine's Fourth of July parade.

If the shipment doesn't make it for the weekend it'll just be the Wit on the 4th.
