So next weekend (Feb 24th-26th) I’m attempting to complete an epic weekend of brewing. Four 5 gallon batches. 1 Friday night, 2 Saturday and 1 Sunday. My goal is to get as much beer in the pipeline as possible before my wife gives birth to our first child. She’s due March 1st. So, what are the odds that she goes into labor during my ‘Epic Weekend of Brewing’? Will Murphy’s law come in to play?
On the docket for the weekend.
Barley Wine, which will be bottled and aged in smaller champagne bottles for a year and consumed each year on my child’s birthday (roughly).
Orange Cascade Pale Ale x2. 1 batch for me. 1 batch for a friend’s wedding.
Hoppenweizen - Finally getting around to making a hoppy wheat. Been toying with this since last spring.
And if time is permitting on Sunday (and my burner doesn’t quit on me) I’ll brew a 5th 5 gallon batch. Either a Dusseldorf Altbier or an experimental idea of mine called a Neapolitan Stout. It will be a Chocolate, Vanilla, Strawberry milk stout.
