This weekend is a four day weekend (for those of us not on shift work).
So that makes it a long brew weekend.

What are you guys planning on brewing ?

I'm going to be brewing a Stout and an Oktoberfest-Marzen.

Beers,
Doc

I've got some drinkin' to catch up on.

But I'm planning a hoegarden for the weekend after. Anyone know where I can buy flaked wheat (not weeties). I can get it for $3 or so per 500 g at the local health food shop but I want to buy 5 kg.

Stocks are low at the moment (1keg + 1 in primary) so I will be brewing an APA which has become my standard drinking stock :rolleyes:

Next will be another english special bitter then I may delve into the lager world :huh:

I just hope my keg sees me through the w/end :eek:

just can't decide. I have everything i need to make just about any beer.
i think a scottish 80 would be lovely and a ESB with the youngs yeast.
plus i have some new american hops to try in a pale ale.
A C.A.P. would be nice too, just to please the masses.

Cheers jayse

Coopers old dark kit with chocolate malt and roast barley and some homegrown POR late addition.

And maybe, a quick 3-can homebrand el cheapo high gravity experimental brew, just to see what happens...?

First ever all grain brew. An almost double batch sized chocolate porter, which hopefully will be forgiving of errors on brew day. Cranking up the Valley mill for the first time ever.

I'm not sure if I'll brew this weekend or not. Havent decided yet.

If I do, it'll either be a robust porter, or an oatmeal stout. I've got some dark grains that really need using up :)

I do need to rack my IPA on friday or saturday though. And drink more beer so as I can fill a keg.

I'm in the same boat as you 2 except I am up in Cape York away from my brewery :eek:
I did bring a hydrometer though & I have a great thermometer too ;) so I will be bottling a ginger beer

I'll be bottling a Baltic Porter (tastes fantastic straight out of secondary), racking an all extract pale ale (just a bottle filler) and putting on my Chocolate Wheaton Stout.

I'm having a go at an extract 'n grain porter, based on Palmer's "Port o' Palmer" recipe from his book. LME, Choc malt, crystal and black patent malt with Target and Willamette and a new dried version of the 1056 American Ale I've been meaning to try. Hope it all goes well. Should be my final extract 'n grain brew for a while as I'm one piece of siliconing away from going all grain. Plan to try the 'skunk fart' or similar APA style recipe first, probably next weekend. :) Can't wait!

Shawn.

Lots of family things happening this easter - probably won't put down a brew.
But I do have to bottle an extract and grain Belhaven 80/- clone. A little early - the cc fridge blew up on me :(

Will probably rack a Newcastle Brown clone to secondary.

and then ...... if I do free up the time a Dunkel Weiss - Old Fokker from Goliath brewed with Coopers wheat beer kit, and some halertau aditions. This may have to wait another week.

Losing the cc fridge has thrown my future brew plans around a fair whack.
