Default Drinking a Homebrew waiting for the UPS guy to show up!

I ordered a couple kits from Austin Homebrew Supply, and I am impatiently waiting for the UPS guy to show up, I have the pot on the stove water boiling...lol I doubt I will get my kit today, but who knows.

I didn't think I had any drinkable homebrew left to drink, but when I was in the basement getting my brewing supplies out from under the old brewing bench, I found 3 cases. I am not even sure what is in them. Last time I brewed was a year ago.

I brewed a stout, which this definitely isn't, I did find a few bottles of that. And I brewed a cream ale and just a regular coopers canadian blonde.

I think this is my Cream Ale because there is a little something extra besides the coopers kit. The beer is definitely drinkable, but almost has a Wine flavour to it. It has been aging since May of 2008. This beer wasn't drinkable after 3 months, which is why I hid it away I guess.

At least I have something else to drink besides that 24 pack of Coors Light someone bought me for my birthday.

Lots of people say Patience is so important for home brewing. It's true, but I think it has more to do with waiting for UPS and FedEx to arrive than waiting for beer to be good .


And you need to stop hanging out with whoever thinks a 24 pack for Coors is a birthday present.

I was going to say, anybody who would give a homebrewer Coors must not know him well.

I too am waiting for a UPS Christmas in September today. Wort chiller, caps, etc.

I'm hoping UPS comes today also. Have lots of ingredients coming.

I remember waiting for Strat-o-Matic cards to show up with the same excitement. LOL

I ordered the Austin Homebrew Supply Hoegaarden clone and the pumpkin ale.

UPS is only trackable until it reaches Lachine, Quebec, which is like 1300 kilometers from here, it was there 6 days ago....I bought dry yeast because I knew this would happen, and I didn't think the liquid stuff would have survived the trip here.

I hope it will get here this afternoon, since I have the afternoon free, and I am working nights all weekend. Living in the middle of nowhere sucks.

Where is it afternoon already? not that a prenoon beer is a bad thing... just wondering.
Also, I guess the huge benefit of me working at home is that I am always home for UPS.

It is 12:30 in the atlantic time zone where I am. But when I was drinking my beer it might have been 11:30 or possibly even 10:30 when I had the first one...lol

What is this rule about 12 o'clock anyway? Who made up that crappy rule. I found a homebrew and I was excited!

A homebrew with breakfast can be a delicious thing.

and Three Cheers for working at home!
