Ok, I haven't brewed for a month because of numerous irons in the fire. I usually do a batch every week and a half at least if not every week. I've got five kegs on tap and 2 in the closet but I'm getting jumpy.

Turns out next week is my Spring Break! I'm definitely brewing BrewPastor's Water Into Barleywine, an Irish Red, a Centennial Pale Ale, probably a DeathBrewer inspired wheat, and a Moosedrool clone. I'll probably drop at least two batches of apfelwein in there as well. I need at least 2 more recipes to do for next week.

I'll keep you guys posted for the BREWING MARATHON!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I'm thinking possibly another IPA (variation of the Bells Two Hearted Clone). I'm open to suggestions.

Nice, I've actually never done an ESB. I guess the time is now! Thanks for the suggestion Wildwood.

You cant go wrong with an IPA, but thats just the hop head in me, yes, I vote for a big smash mouth IPA, good luck with whatever you choose.

Yeah, I've had an IPA of some sort on tap for at least 6 months. I think I'll keep the IPA's going!

If you like a Pliny style IIPA, my Tits Up IIPA is pretty damn awesome.

I doubt I'll brew another "regular" IPA. This will have to be on my regular quarterly brew schedule.

Wow! I haven't brewed a IIPA in literally years. I might have to try something like that. I'll have to dig deep to find all of those hops though.
