Doing a Hefe on Saturday. Pretty simple: 50% Wheat malt, 1# of Lt. Munich and rest Pils to hit ~1.048. WLP300 yeast in 3 qt. starter. About 12-15 IBUs using Hallertau. Little to no late hop additions. Haven't decided on mash schedule...probably dough-in to rest @ 122 F for 10-15 minutes then infuse to 150 F or so for an hour.

Then I'll use the cake for a DunkleWeizen in a week or two. Or should I try my hand at top-cropping?

Damn right I'm brewing this weekend! It's going to be 85 degrees in Philadelphia. I will be brewing outside with some of my buddies and I don't have to pay. My one buddy offered to buy ingredients! So we will be hauling the TV outside, drink beer, watch the NFL draft, and brew! Got to love weekends!

Not me. :(

Fermenters are all full, which is good. Too many lagers lately, which take up space longer.

Next weekend the Pils will be kegged, and I will either brew a premium style lager, or an american wheat. Probably the lager, so it will be ready for upcoming events.

Sounds like the perfect reason to buy another fermenter, or two.

Brewing Ed's Haus Pale Ale tonight, using some harvested WLP001 that's sitting quietly in the fridge right now from the Centennial Blonde I bottled on Wednesday.

Cream of 3 crops with 3 generations present. My dad, me and my 5y.o. son will be brewing, while grandma and mama go buy stuff we probably don't really need.

It will also be my foray into All-grain and my Dad's first brew. He's not really into it, but we don't have living room furniture, so he's helping whether he wants to or not. I'll try and post pics of the disaster that happens this evening. :ban:

I bought the ingredients for Indian Brown Ale from Sam Calagione's Extreme Brewing about a month ago but I haven't been able to find a time to brew it. I hoping to get to it on Sunday.

Conical is finally freed from its Barleywine bondage... Brewing an American Wheat this weekend. Only a few more weekends left for brewing before it gets too hot so I have to add to the stock quickly!! SWMBO gave me a really funny/stern look when I mentioned converting one of the basement rooms into an "environmentally controlled" beer room. Maybe if I left beer out of it I might have had a chance but I doubt it. She's on to me... :)

Tell her its an enviromentally controlled {insert SWMBO's hobby here} room and just slowly start moving beer in and turning down the thermostat :)


I'm Brewing a Belgian Strong Brown Ale this Weekend.

Going to brew an American Ale from Papazian 's book tomorrow - and this time I'll be using plenty of Campden tablets. (The last few batches have had the burnt plastic funk in them and were way cidery.)

I've got two empty fermentors so an Irish Red will be going into one and a Centennial Blonde in the other. I'm on pins and needles waiting for the first pull on the Ed Wort's Haus Pale that's been carbing up in the keezer.
