Default Brew now for great tasting winter brew.

Just throwing this out there. Most people brew low gravity easy drinking "lawnmower beers right now" but should have probably brewed their lawnmower beers in winter and now cracked them open. My point is if you have a fermentation fridge and want that awesome Thanksgiving or Christmas brew than I would urge you to brew that beer now and not in October.

Unless you're waiting for cider apples in October

my fourth brew since starting this awesome thing is a bourbon stout which will begin this week; I am then torn between an Oktoberfest or an Aventinus clone. Seven times at the real deal in Munich against my absolute favorite weitzen of all time.... decisions, decisions . . .

Brewing it now, as in it boils away on the stove as I type. Good to know there are people giving out reminders though.

Excellent reminder!

My next up is an Oktoberfest of sorts but I have in the back of my head to brew an xmas ale of some description. I did do a porter the other day which will sit and age until the fall so having an xmas ale right behind it is a good idea.

Cheers!!

Yummmm....Aventinus.... My second brew was an Aventinus clone. Still loving it.

Funny this should be brought up, as my next brew happens to be a winter warmer. At 8-9%, I think it's a good idea to start early...hopefully within the next couple of weeks.

I just brewed a barleywine last Wednesday, but of course that thing will likely just have made it into the bottle by Christmas. So I still need the holiday / winter beer. I brewed the Midwest Winter Ale last Summer, and it was very nice during the Winter. That was my last extract beer, and now that I'm brewing AG, maybe I'll try the same beer that way. Or maybe something else.....gotta brew soon.

Very good reminder as I'm building my brew order covering the next few months. I'm usually about 2 months behind in the season because I forget!thanks.
