So what are you guys doing for summer beers? What styles have you already brewed/are prepared to brew soon? Anything you suggest? I'm trying to get inspiration for some great beers.

So far I have brewed: A Sam Adams Summer Clone and A Graduation Hefeweizen

What do you guys have brewing?

I have my 1909 Mild in the keg already. The Bent Rod Rye goes in this week end, as it fermented in two days and seems to be clearing in record time. That's it until I float one, I'm out of storage space.

I got an Amarillo Amber Ale dry-hopping, an ESB & a honey wheat bottled and two lagers in primary... I think I need more...

Belgian wit, is next on my list for summer brews. Should be my first all grain, so it will be interesting.

I've got a Belgian Wit fermenting now and a Kolsch and possible ESB in the works.
Nothing until I figure out if I can make it happen over in the UK.

fshnne1: Ambitious little go-getter, aren't we? 4 batches in a weekend...that's dedication!

I brewed the "New Bohemia Pils" (my first lager, a Bohemian pils with a modern, hoppier twist) back in January, and just bottled it this past weekend. That's gonna be one refreshing summer brew!

2 weeks ago I brewed an AG Witbier and a PM Hefeweizen. It's wheat beer season, bitchez!

This past weekend, I brewed a Special Bitter and and a Summerbock. Both should be excellent summertime swill, and the bock should be done lagering just as summer is in full sweltering swing.

Yes, it's going to be a good summer. Indeed! I'm having a big ol' barbecue this weekend...hopefully I'll be able to unload some of my ridiculous beer backstock and make room for the 35 gallons currently in carboys.

Well, I have some things on the radar. A Hefe, an American Wheat, IPA and possibly a third go round of my APA. Problem is lately with taxes, ramping up the garden...etc....etc.. I have a full queue.

Brew what you like. Do this, and you will find your inner brewer.

I've got 10 gallons of Lake Walk pale Ale almost ready to go, and up next is B's Honey Wheat v. 2: Watermelon. That should make SWMBO happy.
