So what's wrong with a little extra protein?

Sure, blame it on the cat.

Don't worry a bout a single cat hair.

Don't even know if I had to make the joke - as it was obvious - but I wanted to say something about the cat picture involving a bald pu$$i licking pu$$i but was a afraid I would get in trouble. Hee Hee.

So, shoot me... it's been a hell of a night.

It could be worse. My very first brew is fermenting right now. When I was chilling the wort last weekend, I found a giant mosquito hawk floating in it. He was limp instead of crunchy, and I think he was missing a wing, so I am hoping he was boiled long enough to get sanitized.

We're calling the brew Super Fly Blonde.

In a tasting/testing at the 7 day mark, Super Fly Blonde wasn't too bad aside from the young beer green apple thing, no detectable buggy taste or smell.

I won't tell anyone where the name came from til the batch is gone. (Assuming that I get it bottled and conditioned OK and it turns into something truly worth drinking, without any obvious buggy flavors.)

I think we all have had a bug or two fall into our brews.

If you live in Florida and brew outside, it can't be avoided. Some of those bugs Kamikaze right into the wort when it's boiling. I now boil with a mini mosquito net over my kettle. No big deal, they get left behind in the trub, it's all good.

FWIW, the average American consumes a pound of insects per year in various foodstuffs, there is an FDA permissible level. I kind of prefer my bugs with a little alcohol given the choice.

Nice way to look at it!
