I just finished up my blonde tonight. This might have been my fastest AG brew yet, clocking in under 5 hours. I started at 4:30 and everything was put away almost a half hour ago!

This coming weekend I'm doing my belgian dubbel. I'm thinking about putting it in wine bottles and aging it till next winter and giving it as Christmas gifts.

Who else has any brews planned for this week?

I racked my porter yesterday and that was it. I need to make room before I can brew again.

I'm brewing my American Style Maibock this week sometime. My starter is waiting for me.

I'm open to suggestions for the next one- haven't come up with anything yet.

I brewed something yesterday. It was 6 pounds of light DME, 8 ounces of 60L steeped grains, 1 ounce each for bittering and finishing of Williamette hops and 11 grams of Nottinghams yeast. Don't know what the hell it is other than great beer. I'm trying to narrow down the taste that I and the wife like. I know that I will not ever buy Northern Brewing hops....way too bitter. I've also learned that I will not make a batch using only LME's. Anyway, I think this brew will be close to an Amercian Amber....or more like an Oklahoma Amber since I brewed it here.

Kegging and cleaning this week. Maybe tackle the Brown Porter.

Did my new IPA on Saturday, racked the smoked porter, and finally bottled the altbier last night. Took a sample of the latter; might tasty, IMHO. SWMBO liked it a lot, as well - I was nervous it might be a little too hoppy for her, but she liked it.

I think I'm in love with Munich malt, every recipe I've done lately has used it.

I want to do something similar to this for next holiday season. Brew something in early 07 that needs 9 months - year to age...

What long aging brews can I get into. Into pretty much anything other than a barleywine...

Brewed my second IPA on Saturday morning. First time reusing yeast. Was worried, because it took so long to start fermenting. It's going great now; I had to release the pressure from the bucket, as it was coming through the airlock when I got home today!
