I think a three day holiday deserves its own "what are you brewing" thread.

So how bout it.

Do we have some 999's going up this weekend?
Maybe some Octoberfests in the works?
Perhaps a strong ale in time for the holidays?

What will we smell coming out of your brewhaus this weekend?

Nothing here. I just brewed 3 IPA variants and have some home repairs to tend to and a hop harvest to attack.

I think it is time to bottle the mead now tho. They have been in primary now for nearly 8 weeks. Half of that time they have been clearing in the fridge.

Hmm I'm thinking a DFH 60 clone is up for tomorrow, bottling some mead and Bee Cave HPA.

This weekend I will be bottling a batch of Yooperbrew's DFH 60-min IPA clones and will be brewing a Bee Cave Haus Pale Ale (thanks EdWort). If time permits, I want to do one of your Kona Fire Rock Pale Ales too. We will see.
Just got back from my LHBS and my Vienna Malt has bugs! We will see how those dang little critters like the 168°F sparge....

Oktoberfest or Altbier for an Octoberfest we'll be having. I am also going to smoke homemade sausages.
I'm thinking about calling my first batch Me Buzz You Long Time and am still looking for something clever for the October beer!!
