I'd love to do two 10 gallon batches but I can only fit 2 buckets in my freezer for fermenting. After the IPA gets racked, It's 10 gallons of Haus, followed by 10 gallons of Kolsch, followed by 10 gallons of Porter.

We will be doing our second beer, an Oatmeal Stout on MLK Day.

I think I'm going to work on Monday, but take Friday off since I'm having my dishwasher delivered. Since I'll be home, might as well brew up an IPA:mug:

Nah, I am doing my brewing Saturday. Got the 5 gallon "Starter" started today for the 888. Nice American Wheat yeast cake should be great.

Man, I never get MLK Day off!

It is nice though. I work in the ghetto, and there is literally NO traffic on the commute.

Score!

True, but I like my constant temp of the my freezer with the 25 watt light bulb. It makes consistently good beer, and every Haus Pale tastes as good as the last. :mug:

I'll be brewing up a variation on your HausAle Ed:

8lb 2 row
2lb Vienna Malt
.5lb Crystal 10L
.5oz Chinook (60 minutes)
.25 Amarillo Gold (45 minutes)
.25 Chinook (30 minutes)
.25 Chinook (5 minutes)
.25 Amarillo Gold (5 minutes)
Safale US-05 Dry Yeast

I want to compare the difference the hops and yeast will make.

I have to work on MLK day, but I'm brewing 20 gallons this weekend so it all should even out.

I think I'll brew the AHS Arrogant Bastard clone, and possibly your Haus Pale Ale if I have the ingredients on hand.

(Great recipe, by the way. It made my first AG go smoothly, and it tastes great!)

Working on a Federal holiday??? :confused:
The legislature is in session that day here in VA, but I don't work there. Going there to lobby legislators, I do it every year on MLK day. I have the day off.

Don't have Monday off. But I really wanted to try my hand at a dubbel this Saturday. However, I brew on the patio and with a predicted high of 9oF and a wind chill of 10 below, I think I'll be staying inside and drinking homebrew. I will be transfering my "New Year, New Home" ale to the keg that day!:)

But I am brewing because its my birthday, not because its MLK day or Civil rights or anything like that. Screw everyone else - its all about ME

Will be making AG batch of a MidWest Red Ale kit

I am calling it Martin's Ale (boring name, I agree)

Consumption occurs on Sunday, when the Pats shutdown the Chargers

i don't get MLK day off :mad: but i am brewing two batches this weekend.

i'm helping a friend and his dad brew their first all-grain hefeweizen :) (and i'm using a wheat LME i've never tried before that's supposed to be really good)

and i'm brewing with a friend...i think we're gonna go with a partial mash cuz of time (both batches are on sunday)

maybe i'll do some BBQ action on Saturday while i remember MLK's legacy of peace :)
