Curious what people will be brewing this weekend.

I've got an Apricot Blonde Ale on the docket.

I prepped my grain and water last night and I got up nice and early this morning for National Brew Day. Finished my Blonde Ale in 3 hours from start to finish!

Didn't brew today. But went and hung out at LHBS and bought a Brown Porter. I'm getting the starter going and brewing on Tues night.

Made Kiss your cousin- ketucky common(a bit altered),last night. Dropped my auto-siphon while bottleing my Gingered beer,and the flapper thing popped out,anybody know a way to put it back in,i was using a tube with the piece attacted tring to snap it back in hasnt worked yet.So i had to use the ol racking cane method which went smooth i thought i was going to get sanitizer in my beer,its been awile i easily had the floor pretty wet using that method though.

I jumped the gun a little and did all my brewing last weekend. I actually bottled a batch of witbier and went straight into brewing the next batch while the carboy was soaking. No sense in having an empty carboy lying around.

In the spirit of the day however, I decided to label all the bottles of Nitwit that I bottled last week. Might even take a gravity reading on the porter (any excuse for a sample )
Primary: Belgian Dubbel
Bottled: Belgian IPA, Mild, Wild Saison
On Tap: Graf, English IPA, Belgian Blond
On Deck: Scottish 80/-, RyePA
