Memorial Day Brew Session

      So it's been some time since I last update this site, so I thought I'd jot down my recipes I brewed yesterday (Memorial Day 2013).  I really needed to get a few brews in for this summer since I have nothing on tap now, so I decided to do 10 gallons of a Blonde Ale (Ombre Ale) and a 5'r of a IPA (Stuporous).
      I originally thought I'd just do two of my recipes I had done before, but once I got home I noticed I didn't have all the hops I needed for either recipe. So the night before, I had to change up each hop schedule, making them 2 new beers.
      The brew sesh was great, got an early start and ended by 3 in the afternoon! Hit all my numbers dead on and was even able to do a few other chores (like cleaned my bbq) during each mash.
      Anyways, here is the final recipe of each beer:
