Already brewed this weekend. Finishing an amber up right now. Might do a hefe on Sunday if I'm feeling anxious. Gotta love the flex 9/80 work schedule. Brew Friday every other week!

I have the world's fanciest brew stand too...

I've got a 2.5 gallon all-grain ESB and a 5 gallon partial mash oatmeal stout ready to go. I'm hoping to get them both in on Saturday night depending on how early I get started. One may have to wait until Sunday but I like brewing late so probably not.

I just brewed a black ipa (oxymoron?) last night and I'm planning on brewing a cascade, orange, corriander ale later this afternoon. I have the latter on tap right now. It is so delicious that I have to brew more immediately. This keg is not going to last long! That recipe is on the recipe forum. I highly recommend it.

Just Brewed a beer I'm calling "Bob" for "Bottom of Barrel". It's everything I had left on hand but for a couple pounds of chocolate malt. It had just under eight of two-row; a bit over two lbs of biscuit and a little more than one lb of crystal 20. 1/2 oz Chinook, 1/2 oz Centennial, and 3/4 oz Glacier. The yeast is Wy 1968 washed from last batch. The air lock has been chirping since about four hours after pitching the starter. Good times!

Hopefully,my wife & son will come home with the rest of the stuff we need for her 1st brew day tomorrow! She picked out a fresh brewer's best "summer Ale" kit a week ago,got the yeast & briess LME in the fridge,hop packets in the freezer waiting. Not to mention,another cooper's can to use the DME,Saaz hops,etc I've got stockpiled from the same buy a week ago. I need another fermenter pronto. Already tired of this one at a time crap. At least we'll have some HB's to drink for a while. I'm def liking the use of regular size glass bottles,since I can get as many as 68 of'em out of a 23L batch. So the 5G kit should give me some 53 bottles max. But it's gunna be fun,helping her brew a beer style she loves for the first time. I'm perk as a ruttin buck over that!!:rockin:

Double brew day! 5.5 gallons of an all-grain Patersbier and 5.5 gallons of an American Wheat. Should be fun!

Oktoberfest tomorrow, Pils, Munich, Vienna, and a 4 liter starter. Which I didn't start until today, so the brewing may have to wait 'til Wednesday. :(

doing a Dunkelweizen from Brewer's Best later this morning, after I rack my Red Ale to the secondary. (if I didn't have to bowl state tourney this afternoon, I would start on my outdoor bar/brewing station after that...)

Going to brew an American Irish Red (Red Headed Step Child, working name) with a buddy of mine who is learning the craft.

The recipe is a red colored ale, not as dry as an Irish red, with American hops vs. English ones.

Bottled my Porter and kegged my ESB and All Chinook IPA. All of the samples were fantastic.

The only thing that scares me is that I just recently picked up these soda kegs, and even though I've run pbw and star san through them, they still have a little soda smell. The esb one really did, but it was too late, I had already racked it. I've already got 2 kegged and tapped though that came out fine, so I'm hopeful the esb will be ok.

I need to get the proper tool so I can just break them down and clean thoroughly and replace all of the gaskets.

Brewing on Saturday (5/7) a Scottish 90/-... That's the style it's closest to. Started off as a dark cream ale, but the yeast (Wyeast 1318) could produce some fruity esters, so it's more in line with a Scottish 90/-... Brewing a the LHBS sponsored brew-day, so I'll get pretty much all the ingredients for $0...

Four gallons of strike water heating up for tonight's brew session as I type this. DubbelDach's Cascades / Orange Pale Ale is plugged into Beer Smith. I just opened the the first of my last three homebrews and SWMBO is off to the store to pick me up a sixer to carry me through the session.

Damn...I love brew days! :mug:
