As homebrewers, we don't really need a special occasion/date to brew; but it's fun to brew on special days, maybe name the beer something snappy that has to do with the holiday/occasion. Anyone brewing for the mom in your life tomorrow, or if you ARE the mom, something special for yourself? I'm going to do one of the house favorites, an IPA with nothing but Citra & Sabro as late/whirlpool/dry hop additions, on a pretty standard base of 8lbs two row/4lbs pilsner. When it's done right it has a HUGE pineapple presence in both flavor and aroma, with a somewhat elusive note of coconut that is intriguing. I'll go see my own mom tonight (she emphatically does NOT drink any alcohol, personal choice that has nothing to do with religion or anything, she just doesn't like it) so tomorrow is all mine. Husband will be going in to work so a day all to myself.
