Is everybody brewing over the holiday?

I am kegging two batches tonight and setting up for tomorrow.

I get off at 1:00PM Thursday, then am brewing a Vienna Ale.

Friday, I am brewing an 8 gallon batch of wheat (5 gallons of Cherry Wheat and 3 gallons of American Wheat).

Saturday, of course, is for smoking ribs, eatin' and DRINKIN'!!!

No brewing for me. On the Fourth, I've got 120 people coming over, 25 gallons of home brew, and $400 in fireworks.

On the fifth, I clean up...

Brewing as I type, as a matter of fact. Tune in for the brewcast at 12:30 for the chill and transfer to the fermenter.

I'll probably brew on Friday as well and smoke some more meat (got a pork shoulder on the hickory right now) to boot.

We have a wedding on the Fourth, so the 3rd and 5th will have to do.

I've got plans to brew sometime during the weekend.

I'll be making Brewtopia's Belgian Wit and if I do a second batch, I'm going to do an IPA with a bunch of my partial bags of hops.
