I plan to brew Scottish ale. Not sure if I should do decoction to improve maltiness in this beer.

After a couple of months dealing with plumbing issues I will finally be brewing my octoberfest.
I'll be using steam beer yeast at 66-68 so I may end up with an ale like amber. I'm not sure if I will do much of a lager period with this batch.

Just did another pale last night. Its bubbling away nicely as i type.

It was nice to have a couple people over while I brewed. Even though by the time I pitched the yeast I was rather drunk.

Sweet! I'm going to try and get some mountain biking and mulch spreading in before the CC600.

Just checked on the IPA I did yesterday. May have to put on the blowoff hose as it really took off last night. Wasgoing to do a lager Mon but may put it off as I am running out of fridge space.

Well, it has been a busy weekend with family in town and a million other things to do. However, I did spend Saturday morning brewing up my first batch of Pumpkin Amber Ale. Yeah I know, it is summer, not fall. But, we had about 6 pounds of pumpkin in the freezer (from last October's halloween party) that my wife wanted to get rid of. So far it smells great and is bubbling away like a madman. I can't wait to see how this one turns out. This is also my first time using US-56. Now for the hard part, waiting it out.

I'm brewing tomorrow. Looks to be a nice hot day here and I'm looking forward to it. I'll probably throw some chicken on the grill afterwards and chill.

LOL...the wife is gone so I'm gonna get tanked tomorrow. I have a ton of beer I need to drink.
