I'm planning to brew on Halloween morning and found a Vanilla Bourbon Porter posted by Lil' Sparky on here from Denny Conn to make. I'm excited about it and figured a dark beer on Halloween was fitting. Anyone else out there planning a Halloween Brew or a Halloween themed beer? I'm sure there are quite a few pumpkin brews out there but I'm thinking of the darker brews or out of the ordinary Halloween beer. What are you brewing up?

I am probably going to brew something lighter that should be ready around Christmas. Don't know what yet (have to see what left over hops are in my freezer).

I was going to wait until a bit later in the evening, possibly dress up in costume, and stand near my 15 gallon pot. When the adults ask what I am doing, I can share a beer with them while their children get some candy. I suggested to my wife that she should dress up like a witch and stand by the pot like it was a cauldren, but she shot down that idea quickly.

Brewing an amber ale tomorrow with the wife. Should be a relaxing morning while the kids are at school.

We're brewing for our Kickstarter Launch Party so we need to have tons of beer ready for Sunday 11/11. That means tomorrow will probably be ESB and Cream Ale, all on a worknight! Seriously, though, you cannot beat that cream ale my wife designed. It's perfection in a glass. Can't wait to drink it again, and we just killed a keg of it on Saturday!
