I was thinking of doing a Maibock but I couldn't settle on a recipe. Doing a basic lager on Presidents Day Also looking for a good extract Oktoberfest recipe to let sit for the summer.

I can't decide whether to brew a porter or a nutbrown. The nutbrown wasn't planned, but I took stock of grains and hops, and I've got everything I need already and should really use the stuff up before it gets any older.

but I really WANT the porter...

Looks like Nut brown/brown is in the lead this weekend making a Nut Brown myself and maybe bottling a Blackberry wheat if I can get a new bottling bucket before Sunday and caps.

This weekend I'm bottling my porter and brewing a kolsch. I am looking forward to trying the porter when it's done as I don't think I've ever had one. I suppose I could try to find some in the store to see what it tastes like.

My kolsch batch from the fall took a long time to get good. At first I thought it was a bad batch. I started drinking it anyway and when it finally got good I was p*issed to find out that I had less than a case left of it. I hope this batch turns out to be similar to the first.

SFA... again! I boought all the ingredients for a maibock and the second I walked out the door of the LHBS my phone rang and it was time to go to a drilling rig. Did I mention it's -34C?

I'm so lonely.

I'm planning to brew either an amber/red American with a buddy, or if he craps out I'm doing an Aventinus clone. However, since I'm sick as a dog at the moment and the weather is not looking pleasant this weekend I may crap out, as well.

I did the Maerzen extract recipe from one of the Papazian books shortly after Christmas. You could call it a rehersal, though I will do the next one AG. I have been drinking it once in a while now, but yesterday night, I thought it came out pretty well and I now want to compare it to Spaten Ur-Maerzen.

But I will start worrying about the Oktoberfest at the beginning of March.

I am planning on bottling my latest Red Ale, and testing the stout that I have in the secondary. I will also be tasting the scary stout I am trying to age into drinkability. I have an order of fresh organic Cascade whole hop coming in from my wife's herbal supply shop, so I think I am going to brew something, just not sure what. I am leaning toward IPA, but I was also thinking of possibly trying my hand at a fruit/berry concoction, like either a blueberry or black rasberry ale. I will be fooling around with recipes today, so we'll see.
