Slow brewing month...

Really want to get back in the swing of things, but the vacation, the kids school start-up, and a large load of work from the employer have taken precedence. I have a hefe in the bottle for three weeks now that I realize I haven't documented yet, so I'll have to add that post shortly.

On deck (ingredients on hand):

Oktoberfest (first lager!)
Pale Ale
Gluten-free Sorghum Ale

Upcoming (need to make purchases):

Yazoo Gerst Amber
Yazoo Sly Rye Porter
Yazoo Pale Ale
Another crack at Winter Welcome
Another crack at a bitter or ESB
Loved the last Fat Tire clone
Haven't done an IPA in ages
Casually thinking of doing the Midwest Kit of the Month, simply to cut down on decision-making
May look at the Northern Brewer Surly series
Been wanting to do a roggenbier
Want to work through some of the Classic Beer Styles I haven't done yet
