I'm moving to southern california for a coop on the 14th. Anyways I was planning on doing a mead and maybe some sort of fruit mead. I was also thinking some sort of big beer. Then when I return in 8 months have a get together with some friends and decent homebrew.
One idea was a barleywine. I'd love some other recipe suggestions. I don't have the equipment for ag yet, so whatever I do will either be extract or minimash.
Also if you know of any good destinations in southern california(I'll probably be in lancaster) breweries, lhbs, or other points of interest I'd be interested in hearing of them. I think the Stone Brewing Co. is about 2 hours away and where I'm from I haven't found any of their beers.
