for me it's brewing season finally since i don't brew much in the summer due to too many summer batches not doing well. Made a california common wed night (one of my staples). next saturday our club(omahops) is doing our fall big brew event. we are making 85 gallons of old ale accompanied by mass quantities of great food and beers. In the last couple weeks commercial beers i love are out such as Celebration, New Belgium's -2 below, and Sammys winter lager. Have an altbier, Oatmeal porter and a strong Scotch ale planned for December brewing. What a great time of the year!

I'm kicking off lager season today. Trying out S-189. I like brewing this time of year when I can find a dry day. Temp control is a lot easier! I also can use my pool water for cooling from now until May

My next batch will likely be a Munich helles. I have a very old tube of White Labs WLP830 that will need reviving, but I'm interested in trying this strain.

I'm reminded of the story of the homebrewer I knew in Iowa some years ago who brewed only lagers almost every weekend from about the first of December until early March. He began by buying two smack packs of Wyeast 2206, which he reused for the entire season. The first batch was a helles and the last was a Samichlaus-style super doppelbock. His chilling method was to place the kettle either in a snowbank or on his patio, depending on the temperature. Primary fermentation was in the coldest corner of his basement, and secondary was in the crawl space under an addition to his house. Despite the somewhat primitive methods, many of his beers won awards.

That's cheaper than Denny
