Default Screw it, I'm brewing!

In the spirit of Brewsmith and Dude, I'd like to continue the tradition. It's Wendesday morning and it should be a workday, but SCREW IT, I'M BREWING! Got to get the IPA going for EdWort's comp . . .

I've never had a morning brew session unless you count the wee hours.

Got a link to this comp of which you speak, er, type?

I think it's full, but there may be an alternate list you can get on.

Good for you. I just did the clean up from last nights brew. I figure Tuesday evening is just as good as any other day. Gotta keep the pipeline flowing! If you brewcast, we could all blow off work.

I think the work gods are pissed that I’m brewing today. Milling grains as usual with my Barley Crusher with one hand on the drill, the other pouring grain into the hopper (I have the small one.) Something in the grain got caught and jammed the mill. It lifts out of the bucket and spins, catapulting grain across the room. This wasn’t a simple spill. Four pounds of grain bounced off the wall and scattered everywhere. Not a good start to this brewday!

The good new is that my dog loves Maris Otter so clean up was easy.

I had a case of Rectal Blindness a few weeks ago and did the same thing.

Rectal Blindness is when you just don't see your a** going into work ! Like a Mental Health Day.

I hate you .

I have at least two brews queued up and can't see my way clear to a brewday.

I must find time to brew because we have a huge 4th of July party every year and this year we're serving homebrew from a newly minted (still in progress) 4-perlick keezer. The beer has to be ready by then. It just has to.

Did I mention I'm green with envy.

Best of luck and I hope it turns out just like you want it to!

I think the brewing gods are just cranky today. I'm supposed to be finishing up a proposal but said, "Screw it, I'm brewing" too. It's not going well. For the first time in a very long time I missed my mash temp and even adding boiling water isn't getting it up where it needs to be. There just isn't enough room in the cooler. My kitchen sink garden hose adapter failed, partly flooding the kitchen. And the wind has picked up wildly, blowing all sorts of stuff into my sparge water any time I lift the lid (and presumably will do the same to the the kettle when I can finally get it going). My normally well-choreographed brew day is going about as well as a kindergarten dance recital. Oy.
