Hi steve. It's Eddy we spoke at the last meeting. I was wondering if you still had those bottles we were talking about. If you do I would love to take them off your hands. Do you think I could pick them up some time this week? If you threw them out or need them for something else don't sweat it.

Seasonal Beer Brewing

For many years, I?ve wanted to do a better job of matching my beer brewing with seasons and major holidays. But I always found myself behind. When October rolled around it was too late to brew that Oktoberfest, and my green beer was always a bit too late for St Patty?s day. My stouts were always finished for the warm summer months.

To combat this, I?ve assembled a brewing schedule of sorts to help me have mature beers ready for the right holiday or season. To keep it simple, I?ve listed popular styles of beer for different seasons by quarter, and a corresponding list of which quarter you need to brew them in. The assumption here is that 3 months lead time is enough for me to assemble the ingredients, brew the beer, and have it mature properly. While I don?t brew all of these styles each year, it gives me a list to choose from.

Holiday Ales
Christmas/Winter Beer
Stouts, Porters and other Dark Beers

Chuck I have been playing with this a bit. I can't seem to get the thumb nails back after I turned them off!
