Brew-centric weekend without actually brewing

It's been a while since I've posted anything regarding my brewing, so I thought I would stick out there what my activities I have to accomplish this weekend.

I have the old Dirty Cow to bottle. It's been sitting in the cold basement in it's secondary for a while now. It's ready.

The Belgian Blonde has to go into a keg in preparation for the Brewer's Heritage Festival, so that means a little cleaning and sanitizing action.

I'm entering the First Crack IPA into another competition. It took second in Light Ales at the St. Louis Microfest. It also received Honorable Mention at the Bluegrass Cup.

On Sunday, I'm going to both a baby's Christening who's father happens to be another homebrewer. It's mostly a reason to drink homebrew and his keg of O'Fallon 5 Day IPA. After that, it's off the STL Brew's Picnic for more homebrew and nice food.

I'm going to try another bottle of the Little Pig Wheat tonight. Hopefully it will have fully carbonated and developed some kind of head. The last one at 5 days in the bottle was fizzy, but had no head to speak of.

Later, beer fans.
