I've been out of the brewing game for about a year, but out of the blue my dad asked if id be interested in brewing some on Thanksgiving morning. Everyday since I have woken up with a renewed vigor to brew beer. This year the burner will not be used for frying turkey, but for brewing delicious delicious beer. Anyone else using this gluttonous holiday as an excuse to brew?

I am positive if I weren't visiting family I'd be brewing on Thanksgiving Day. I'll just have to wait til Friday.

All by my lonesome on Thursday, so I'm brewing two brews: an American Amber Ale and a heavy Trappist style beer.

I'm going to brew Friday and maybe again on Saturday...I was looking to do a group brew, but it appears that is falling through..

I know I'm probably going to do a PM IPA...and I may do a small batch of Poor RIchard's ale..

I'm planning a brew on Friday and another on Saturday. I'm thinking an ESB for Friday and a Wit for Saturday. SWMBO's been on my ass to make her another batch.

I am going to get up early and brew before all the shinanigans start. Planning on brewing my first lager.

Sounds like it did fall through. If there is some more interest let me know. I was thinking about brewing on Friday but it's so damn cold.

IF I get my Burner welded up today, I'm echoing Revvy here.
I'll be doing a Centennial Blond on Friday, and West Coast Pale on Saturday...or Friday Evening...depending on how it goes.
I'll be bottling both, as I've got a back log on kegs right now, and it'd be 3 or 4 months before either one hit the taps.

I USUALLY don't bitch about not having a house....But if I did have one, I'd invite people over....I appreciate Henry's Offer, but I don't feel like driving 90 minutes if it's just gonna be the two of us...in the winter that is...

If there was going to be several of us going that'd be fine...

Or someone more local to all of us...
