Default Born on Date

I have seen some pic's of you all that have a descriptive beer list (menu) for your Keezers & Kegorators. I have a white board for mine. My main question is if you list the "Born on Date" is it the date the beer was kegged? Or the date the yeast was pitched?? Also, besides Name, Born on & ABV....what do you all list on your menus? Just curious..........

Same here, I use iCal to keep track of things. If it didn't send me an alert I'd never remember to take gravity readings, or bottle anything...

Also each batch is numbered so I know what's what.

I have a "kegged date" column on the spreadsheet I use to keep track of my kegs.

Still looking to see if people think the "Born on" date is when the yeast is pitched or when the beer is packaged?

Just to throw out an analogy, (with apologies to all), we don't consider a baby to be born until it is delivered. Going by this, you wouldn't consider your beer to be "born" while still in the gestational period, only when it has left the mother carboy, and placed in a bottle?

Did I really just type that?

I would consider born on when it was kegged.

You did. I always regarded wort as the fertile womb, and yeast as a load of semen splashing happily into the inviting malt-rich environment. So I'm right there with you.

Is that what you're thinking when you drink it?

That makes sense..... So I shouldn't feel weird about keeping the afterbirth in my fridge when I harvest yeast.......
