Default Back in the saddle again

For all you doubting Thomases, and I know there are many, I have finally begun a brew day. Got the grains steeping for an extract clone of SNPA. My last six batches have all been PMs, but extract is all I have time for now.

Have to do it in stages as I have to leave soon to get my daughter at preschool and then take her to daycare. By 1:30 p.m EST, I should have the boil going.

Finally. It's only been 95 days since I last brewed, not that I'm counting.

I feel oddly liberated.

Welcome back into the fray, Ed!

Maybe this batch will make you more bareable.

Crap. I knew that was wrong as soon as typed it. Well-played.

*zoom*

Did someone say naked beer casting?

Edit: Oh yeah, and glad you get to brew.

Edit 2: On second thought, bare junk near an open flame = YIKES.

Yikes even without the open flame.

I'll be doing the boil in the garage. Had hoped to do it on the deck to give me easier access to the spigot for the IC. Alas, we had major ice yesterday and today it is melting and falling everywhere. I don't need a big sheet of ice to fall off my roof and onto my head.
