I'm about to switch over my Amber Cerveza to the secondary to free up my primary for the Russian Imperial Stout I'm cooking up this weekend.

What an addictive hobby. I've brewed the past few weekends and will do more this weekend. Now if only I could be this addicted to exercise.....

Mostly maintenance for me this weekend. Cleaning kegs, racking, etc.

I think I'll try to brew the gaelic ale recipe on the 29th, but not sure yet.

Brewsmith, welcome back to the hobby.

Nada again. Caught the flu AND wrenched my back installing the towing wiring under my Sprinter.

That Old Dog has been waiting a long time.

I'm trying to fill my empty kegs so I NEVER run into the problem I just had. Namely NO HOMEBREW!! I know it was shortsighted of me but WTF. I'm doing an IPA on Sat and another house lager on Mon after the parade.

Going for two more next weekend. Definately brewing on my B-day 6/6/06. Not doing the board's brew tho, thinking of a late Octoberfest, maybe an Imperial Porter.

Loser. I'm crankin' out 10g tomorrow. Decided to forego the Corona on this grist and give the LHBS's mill another chance...

Big brew weekend for me. I think I'll call it "Ugly Monk Belgium Abbey". A 1.080 all grain belgium style.

I'll be brewing like a monk, and smoking some meat! Can't get any better than that!
