Another 10 gallons of my Three-Five Session Haus Ale.

First indoor brew. No flies. No sweat. No lugging heavy pales around. and the five-tapper just an arm's reach away.

Today I'm sorting through what's left of my 50#'s of Briess and deciding what I need to clone EdWorts clone of stone.

A stone, clone, clone. :D

That's next weekend though.

Yep,
aekdbbop is coming over at 2pm and we are going to knock out 11.5 gallons for a Pete's Wicked Ale clone. Already have the grain weighed out and the water in the kettles.

I got my AG learn on 2 weeks ago....It's simple, just need equipment!

Lets see, yesterday I bottled Apfelwein, made apfelwein, and made a 60 Min IPA....that tastes so ****ing good!

I still have to bottle a Hefe, and I need to brew some more this weekend!

You guys wanna start scheduling the next brew day? I can't make MCBers for the next two months. I'm down for any other time in Sept (if you're brewing more this month!) or the third week in Oct. Would love to get to know some local brewers better!

I'll probably brew again next weekend. I need to get a Bier de Garde going to build up yeast for a tripple I have planned. Nothing like brewing beer as a bit starter. :D

Well, I have big plans for tomorrow. It started out with a brew day and then it moved to me realizing that I need to bottle and or secondary the three batches I have going already. So... My plans for tomorrow are breakfast then:

1. Patience Porter to Secondary after 4 weeks in Primary

2. Bottle Edworts Haus Ale

3. Bottle Pumpkin Ale

4. Brew a Dry Stout / Oktoberfest if I feel like I have time.

We'll see how the bottling goes. ;) One thing is for sure, I'll have a lot of damn beer to drink in a month. ;) Except for the Patience that waits for Christmas eve. =D

I'm (hopefully) moving into my new house on Tuesday. All of my brewing equipment is in storage until then. If all goes well, I will be brewing Tuesday night. I've already got my grains ready for the first batch. Wednesday will be a pumpkin and Thursday will be a Belgian. Then, god knows what over weekend. WOOOOO. Feels good to be back into the brewing world :)

Brewed a Smooth Nut Brown today from Midwest. We were too darn lazy to get any racking or bottling/kegging done so were in for a marathon session next weekend.

Think you'll brew Saturday or Sunday? My wife's taking the MCAT on Sat. so I'm playing with the little one all day :ban: Sunday may be cool, though. PM me if you're interested showing your knowledge to a n00b.

Well, due to unfortunate circumstances, I didn't brew this weekend, but I'm brewing right now. I just got off of work, so I have a coffee IV going. :D

I decided I was short on Lake Walk Pale Ale, so that is what I'm doing. Just mashed in....

I also have an ESB to rack and force carb so Yuri can try some this week. :)
Gotta get a keg clean.

I ended up making Red Barn this weekend.








Unfortunately, this would not be "Murder In The Red Barn." My old man ask me (and I felt obliged) to help him paint his barn. Red, of course. All freakin' day. Ugh.

Looks good, though!

I hit 80-something% efficiency on my second mash and first time the blow-off tube was needed. Can't wait for this one either!

I used my brew pot's basket insert for the first time, to contain 6 ounces of whole hops. It was a wonderful thing. After the boil I just lifted it out and didn't have to worry about hops any more. Also pitched my first starter. Overall, it was a great weekend!

Had a pretty full brewday on Saturday. Racked the Barleywine, Bock and IPA to secondary, kegged the Pale Ale, bottled the Imperial IPA and brewed a Belgian Wit. All this in about 8 hours.

Yeah, that's record time.

I started my Amber Lager at 5am, finished at 11:15. Of course, it was double-decoction. Could have been worse, I guess...6:15 for decoction isn't the end of the world.

why are you up at 5am?
Actually I was up at 4:30. 5am was mash-in time.

I was up that early because I'm a fuggin crackhead. That, and the Hokies kicked off their season at noon. They didn't look too great, but it was good to see 'em play anyway. And in any case, they looked better than Michigan :D

That was so SWEET, wasn't it? I was watching it and praying. :tank:
My little brother goes to app state, and he said that on Saturday night, a bunch of people broke into the stadium, broke down the goalposts, and delivered them to the chancellor's house. ha. Crazy mountain folk. Yes, very sweet indeed. My buddy was over watching the VT game with me...he's a Michigan fan. He was stunned. And glad that Comcast didn't have GamePlan. Just last week he was scheming on getting it so he could watch Mich games all season. :p

The hefe should be interesting - I'm using two 3.3 lb bags of Breiss liquid Bavarian wheat extract that are from July of 2000 (that's the date on the obviously dead and useless 3068 yeast tube in the kit) and have been stored in a garage, in Florida, since then. I dunno if they will be any good or not - I am gonna open the bags and inspect the extract by sight and smell prior to starting the steeping grains. I bought fresh yeast and fresh grains for it.
This kit was part of a batch of items I found on Craig's List and I figured it couldn't hurt to try it. The real take in the stuff was 60 flip top Grolsh bottles and a 24" SS slotted stirring spoon.
Here's an update - I cut open the bags of extract prior to starting just to be sure. The extract was black and thick like tar. It smelled like molasses on steroids. That went down the garbage disposal and I went to the LBHS for some fresh wheat extract.

Ok, I'm going to need your guy's help on keeping me accountable on this one. Looks like I have been in the_bird's position since I have not brewed in about 2 months. Work has been crazy and every weekend has had something going on. I need to get back on the horse. I have several brews planned and in the works, a couple with deadlines. I need you guy's to give me a swift kick in the pants and make me start brewing.

That's why I started the thread - to give myself the ass-kicking!

But, I got the old man to agree to help me weld up a brew sculpture. He'll help me score the materials, I just need to start thinking through a good design. Good project for the spring.

Should have posted a thread called, "Who's drafting tonite?"
