Default Awesome Brew Day. My day off!

I don't get many days off, but when i do, I play hard. Because I work hard too. Today I decided to do nothing but make a batch of beer and relax all day. I have some Gov't Mule Pandora radio blastin, some Oaked/Bourbon arrogant ale clone flowing, and a porter mashing right now. It is a perfect day in FL. Fired up a cigar and just chillin out. It son't get much better than this.

I could really get used to this. Too bad I have a long way to go till retirement. Anyone else brewing today?

What are you brewing?

I am so jealous! I was thinking about taking a vacation day on Thursday and doing the same thing. I did last month and it was the best day ever. Actually brewed back to back batches and finished just when the wife and kids were getting home.

Carry on John!

I thought about getting a Citra/Vienna SMaSH going after this!

Nice, it's like fishing, the worst day brewing (if there is such a thing) is better than the best day working. I've never had a bad brew day though. Citra/vienna smash sounds perfect, I've some citra coming to try in my special red, carry on.
