Like most sane people, I find it unbearable to even turn on the stove when it’s 100 degrees outside. Because of that, I haven’t brewed since my Berliner Weiss/Smoktoberfest double brewing weekend way back in May. The beer schedule I created in January is backed up about 6 or 7 beers - mostly wheats and American styles to enjoy immediately and a couple of bigger beers to be aged until the winter.
I finally gave in and turned on the air conditioner. Now I’m ready to start playing catch up - over the next four days I need to bottle two Barleywines, do….something to a Berliner Weiss (add Lactic, possibly bottle, maybe add pickle juice to a gallon?), figure out where I’m going with this mead, brew a Biere de Garde, brew an American Rye, brew a Braggot, figure out where to put all of this so I can free my fridge up for another split batch experiment in a couple of weeks.
