    Big Brew Day is fast approaching.
    http://www.homebrewersassociation.org/p ... rew-events

    How many of you are planning on brewing at a registered site?
    Also, how many gallons will you be brewing and what style?
    AHA has suggested recipes to brew. http://www.homebrewersassociation.org/p ... ay/recipes

    I'll start..
    I'm hosting and expect at least 75 people at the store.
    8-10 brew systems set up by local brewers.
    I'll be brewing 20 gallons of the More Fun Blonde.

    It'd be nice if we could keep totals on this forum.

    I'll be hosting a few friends at my place. We're likely get three brewing setups going with a grand total of 20 gallons brewed between three different beers. I was thinking of brewing Larry's Summer Citra Kolsch.

    Not attending any type of group brew session, but my brew schedule (yes, I've so nerded-out on the hobby, I actually have a schedule) says I'll be brewing the strawberry blonde ale that I've posted in recipes feedback forum.

    (Before the day comes, this might change to a pale ale recipe I've been working on, which is intended to be similar to Bells Two Hearted, but as an APA rather than an IPA: "Two Lite").

    Well I'm up and getting ready for the big day!
    I had a change in plans with what I'm brewing though.
    I decided to do 2 batches piggyback and finish with 50 gallons today! :mrgreen:
    We're expecting 75-100 people at the store brewing, helping, learning and having fun.
    I'll get some pictures and add them after today.
    Brew on everyone.

    Wasn't planning on brewing when I woke up this morning, but after a few last-minute changes of plan today I ended up throwing a blonde ale together.

    Here's the recipe.

    Probably the palest-coloured batch I've done so far.

    Fingers crossed all these 4th May batches turn out good worldwide. We might all end up with sore heads around the middle of June!
