In January I bottled the Milk Chocolate Raspberry Stout for St. Valentine’s Day and brewed an Oatmeal Stout to share with my fellow Irishmen before & after we march in the St. Patrick’s Day parade. :cheers:

In February I brewed a Belgium Petite Palisade Pale Ale & a Saison

Up next in a week or two will be a Tripel followed by a Mango-Habanero Cream Ale

All 5 gallon batches.

My plan is to get ahead of the curve on brewing this winter so I can focus on my garden and spending my days off with my son once the warm weather hits. I have also been trying to stay on a schedule so I can repitch the same yeast into a few successive beers. Here’s what I’ve done so far:

Lagers with WY2633:
Dunkel (fermenting)
Märzen (fermenting)
Doppelbock (scheduled for the Dunkel’s yeast cake)

Ales with WLP037:
Nut Brown (bottled)
Old Peculier sorta clone (fermenting)
Gigantic Barleywine (brewing tuesday - going on Old Ale’s yeast cake)

Also scheduled:
Flanders Red SMaSH using Red X malt and Red Poppy dregs
Motueka Pilsner
Hibiscus Saison
House IPA

I’m hoping to have all these started by May. Then I can focus any summer brewing on trialing the dozen or so new and experimental hop varieties in my freezer.

Brewed 10 gallons of an IPA today. Have 5 gallons of an Oktoberfest weighed out and plan to do that next. Then, by the end of March will start on some Pale Ales in hopes of warmer weather…

I did make this tap handle today while my strike water was heating up:

That’s what I do each year also; there are so many other things to focus on during the warm months, plus brewing is easier in the cold, but I need to make sure there is a supply available to last the summer :slight_smile:

1/11/14 Chinook IPA
1/18/14 Pirate’s Plunder India Dark Ale
2/2/14 Bourbon Barrel Porter
3/2/14 The Plinian Legacy

Planned:
3/16/14 Caribou Slobber

:cheers:
Rad

I’ve been a busy brewer so far.
1/1 - JP’s Elevenses
1/16 - English Pale Ale
1/24 - Irish Red Ale
2/7 - Caribou Slobber

2 batches planned this week while the wife is out of town on business. But the thing that’s kept me busiest was going from bottling to kegging and building a keezer.

Bottled: Double Speedball Stout,
APA

Primary: Dunkel

Secondary: Imperial IPA

I am brewing a Scottish Ale tomorrow and the next week an Irish Red.

I’ve been a busy beaver.

3 milds
1IPA
1burton ale
1 oatmeal stout
1 excessively large ESB that I should probably call a barleywine on technical grounds, but my concept for the recipe was the biggest, fattest ESB the world has ever known. But that’s a barleywine, in practice.
