Doing a Hacker Pschorr Oktoberfest clone on Labor Day. Made it last year and got rave reviews from friends. Changing it slightly to adjust to quantities I have of the ingredients.

Today I'm brewing a Vienna pale ale. I'm gonna try using just Vienna as my only malt, bitter with a bit of Polaris and use freshly harvested Hersbruker hops in the mash and for my flavour and aroma additions. Not quite sure what yeast I'll use yet. I might just do US-05 in one and S04 in the other or Conan in one and Kolsch in the other.
 Either way it sould be interesting...

Nice roger, I've been intrigued by an all-Vienna beer in the past. I'll be interested to taste these!

Yes, well I think I have anyways ... i've had a commercial version of a vienna lager that I bought at one point while in Maine ... it was decent.

If a brewery brands a beer as vienna lager, safe to assume it's likely brewed with Vienna as a base malt? That's what I assumed but maybe I'm wrong in this assumption.

Yes your right a Vienna lager is made with Vienna as a base malt. I thought you meant the same as the ale recipe I was doing.
I ended up using Conan and Kolsch yeasts. I imagine you'll get to try it...

Brewing a red IPA today and likely taking apart my grain mill. It was giving me grief this morning.

Honestly I'm not sure. I got it from Chris, it doesn't have OBK anywhere on it. It has been solid for the last year and a half so I guess I can't complain.

Brewing up my harvest ale today, and Imperial Harvest at that. Friend of mine had a real good first year on Columbus so it should be a 100+ IBU hop bomb with Columbus, cascade, centennial and goldings.

Unexpected brew day. Making another Red IPA. Changing up the hops and a little of the grain bill.

Also decided to bottle a RIS I brewed in January. Had a stuck fermentation and decided to pitch brett dregs a couple of months ago to lower the FG. @jamie_savoie helped save this batch.
