After a massive hiatus, I'm dusting off my equipment and getting ready to go out all on a ridiculous TRIPLE brewing day this Friday. I'll be doing a porter, an imperial IPA, and a Christmas wheat beer. The first two will be kegged for the upcoming holidays, and the third will be bottled for gifts. Pretty sure this is going to be a dawn to dusk affair. Anyone else have special brewing plans over the long weekend?

#50 Imperious IPA
#51 Razz Buried

Nice day. Hoping to brew. My wife just confirmed that we are doing amazon for black Friday. My day just freed up. I have a big oatmeal stout planned.

Sounds like a long (but great) day!

I was kicking around the idea of brewing. SWMBO and my buddy that I brew with both have to work. Might be a good time to pull out the old 5 gal equipment and go back to the kitchen stove for some ideas that have been on my mind lately.

I might. I definitely plan to brew this week, if not Tuesday, than Friday. An IPA, maybe Green Flash West Coast.

I have been debating a slight hot pepper wheat beer. I might just brew that up friday.

I have so much brewed that I have run out of storage space. I need some friends to come over and enjoy the fruits of my labor.

The wife bought me a book published in England that has a bunch of recipes. I'm thinking of trying the King's Forest Porter.

The main plan is to bottle up a batch of Russian Imperial Stout that has been in secondary since late last spring. If it tastes as good now as it did when I racked it to secondary, this will be my holiday beer, both for drinking and for gifting.

All good beers have 4 things in common:

1. A good recipe closely followed
2. Good ingredients
3. Good sanitation
4. Excellent temperature control

I'm brewing an extract saison at future SiLs house for their wedding. Providing that a brew shop in Fort Worth is open between me arriving for Thanksgiving on Wednesday and Friday.

Planning on a centennial smash pale ale and a slightly modified unhopped version of brandonO's Graff. Hope I can make it by the brew store Wednesday.
