Right now I'm a little over halfway through the boil on a Scottish Heavy 70/- that I'm hoping to enter in a club Scottish and Irish ales contest next month. The peated malt in it smells fantastic!

Bottled 5 gallons of an American Amber, and made my first attempt at yeast "washing". It was my first recipie from brewing classic styles. Also brewed a gallon version of the English bitter from brewing classic styles.

Racked a gallon of skeeter pee and started another batch on the yeast cake, then made a starter for a lawnmower beer I'll make this weekend (hopefully.)

Bought some stuff:
55 lbs CMC 2-Row Pale Malt
50 lbs Briess 2-Row Brewers' Malt
5 lbs Thomas Fawcett Amber Malt (for the DFH90 clone )
5 lbs White Wheat Malt
2 packets Notty
2 packets S-04
1 packet US-05
8 oz. Amarillo

Got the first of two steps for a WLP007 starter on the stir plate so the yeast is ready for Sunday's DFH90 brew day.

First attempt at plating and slanting yeast, using what was left in the tube of the WLP007 after pouring it into my starter. Tried for one plate and two slants, but we'll see if it works.

Planning my brew-cation. I took next week off and I'm brewing three beers! A california common, a breakfast stout and a 10 gallon batch of biermunchers centennial blonde. Also I built a smaller 5 gallon mash tun for some of the smaller beers I like to make.
