This Weekend's Homebrewing Activities

Well, this weekend I think I'll finally brew my Belgian Dark Strong Ale. I have all of the ingredients ready to go. Should I brew on Saturday or Sunday? Hmm, I haven't figured that out, yet. I'll have to juggle my running and home-chores schedule to make room for the 6-hour time segment.

I'm also sanitizing & readying two corny kegs for receiving my Imperial Rye IPA out of it's tertiary fermenter. I'll force-carbonate the kegs after they cool, and maybe get to drink some of it by Sunday. I ended up dry-hopping the batch with 6.5 ounces of leftover Zatek-Bor (Bohemian) hop pellets. Zatek-Bor hops are really hard to find outside of Eastern Europe. It will be interesting to see what kind of aromas and tastes prevail with this fun brewing experiment.
