Next Brew: Brown Town + Coffee

So... I like Brown Town more as less as-is; I'm going to drop the
chocolate malt a few % and increase the 80L in equal proportion, but
... I'm ready to do ten gallons of it.

Since we have ten gallons ... half of it will be secondaried with some
form of coffee one I decide which of the myriad ways looks best.

After that my brewing schedule:

 - Ginger-Chamomile Wheat (bah, if only I had gotten a full four cases
   before; we're probably going to have a 2-week gap between batches
   assuming I brew another batch the weekend after solstice and
   carefully ration the remaining bottles)
 - Mo Hitz, Mo Ale: similar recipe; all cascade in the boil, one dry
   hopped with just cascade, the other cascade and citra.
 - 5 gallons of ???? (I want to get a bunch of styles from Triangle Wine
   Company and come up with something interesting and experimental)
 - Nowruz! (bound by my own success)

Also, I am acquiring a 5 gallon bucket of honey in early July. I'm going
to brew a six gallon batch of mead, but that's only 15lbs out of 60lbs
so ... who wants to make some mead? I think the cost will work out to
about $2-3/lb (a one gallon batch is ~3-4 lbs of honey, depending on
your desired residual sweetness). I'll be sad if everyone doesn't make a
mead of some sort, but if I have lots of honey left that just means I'll
end up with a lifetime supply of fruit wine...

SO: who wants to brew this weekend? We're down to one fermenter, but I
can get Kristen to patch up the brewhauler and use the glass
carboy. We'll have the sixth better bottle free the day before Solstice
(I'm racking the 6 gal of Blackberry Cyser into the 5 gallon and
capturing the last gallon for fresh consumption!).

Danielle: well road signs were pissing me off
Danielle: I took one of them out, but the other haven't followed as
