yes, first AG brew. I've spent the past 3 weeks putting together my equipment. And of course, I pick an Imperial IPA with 16# of grain

Doing a Hefe on Saturday. Pretty simple: 50% Wheat malt, 1# of Lt. Munich and rest Pils to hit ~1.048. WLP300 yeast in 3 qt. starter. About 12-15 IBUs using Hallertau. Little to no late hop additions. Haven't decided on mash schedule...probably dough-in to rest @ 122 F for 10-15 minutes then infuse to 150 F or so for an hour.

Then I'll use the cake for a DunkleWeizen in a week or two. Or should I try my hand at top-cropping?
Early brewers were primarily women, mostly because it was deemed a woman's job. Mesopotamian men, of some 3,800 years ago, were obviously complete assclowns and had yet to realize the pleasure of brewing beer.- Beer Advocate

Damn right I'm brewing this weekend! It's going to be 85 degrees in Philadelphia. I will be brewing outside with some of my buddies and I don't have to pay. My one buddy offered to buy ingredients! So we will be hauling the TV outside, drink beer, watch the NFL draft, and brew! Got to love weekends!
You can't be a real country unless you have a beer and an airline. It helps if you have some kind of a football team, or some nuclear weapons, but at the very least you need a beer. -Frank Zappa
