Default Kicked again!

So last night I am ready to get on Wow with the wife and I grab my pizza and a glass and go to the kegerator and... pHffttt...

Seriously? WTF??

I have no idea how I went through that keg so fast. I mean, I've had it for a little while, but I didn't think I was drinking much of it.

So, now I have ZERO beer in kegs. I have a case or so of Stout, and a couple of random bottles of stuff including a few commercials.

And here I am trying to get a few things done around the house so I can start working on my car again, and we are booked every weekend until June.

I think I will need at least two batches to get me back on track, and then another batch in about a month that can sit for a few weeks.

I have a Saison in planning, and the yeast to go with it, just need to nail down the grain bill. And I'll need to decide what else to brew for summer that others might enjoy, and I'd really like to try another IIPA for myself.


How does this happen??

Because you are a flawed creature who cannot keep his pipeline full.

yeah I kicked my OPA what seemed way too soon. Now i have a stout on tap, an oktoberfest lagering until september and nothing fermenting.
BUT, I had an Irish red and a Wit on it's way. Hoping to brew both Saturday But will at least brew the Wit.

Tell me about it, Homer. Looking at my brew log, I've brewed 70 gallon in the past month and a half and have only 3 half-full kegs left in the fridge.

Thankfully, I've another 45 gallon fermenting and am brewing another 10 gal. tomorrow

Not really sure where all of the other beer went

Well, my problem is I have been out of brewing a bit - but getting back in with 2 full recipes of ingredients to go any day now.

In the meantime I picked up a perlick low profile sankey tap and grabbed a 1/6 keg of troegs hopback from the distributor for $49.99 (not bad actually) and threw that in my 4912 to hold me over...

Yeah, so tell me you can brew a batch of beer in 1 hour, about the time I spend playing wow a few times a week.
