I'm a fed employee at work and we have no idea if we are going to be getting a pay check next payday. I will be brewing instead of working this weekend.

I work for a federal program, but we're still working and being paid, fortunately. Government shutting down is just a strange thing and doesn't make much sense. "Budget's due! Oh no! Let's shut the Government down!" Just sounds stupid.

How long does the government need to stay shut down before we're caught up on the national debt?

Didn't mean to make a controversial thread. I am just lamenting that I brewed last Saturday and don't have room in the ferment chamber to brew again for two weeks and here I have time off with no distractions perfect for brewing. Much love to the Feds out there hopefully you can brew today to make the day better than it would be without.
