Default Suprise Brew Day!

Wife decided out of the blue about two hours ago to take the boys down to her mother's house for the afternoon / evening. Hurray! I was certain I was doomed to an afternoon of GeoTrax, Legos, and Cartoon Network (that's honestly not such a bad thing...).

I just doughed-in with a recipe I threw together that has roots in BeirMuncher's Sterling Gold but is about as far from it as it gets. Woot!

PLUS - I have a cold beer in hand and I'm not wearing any pants! Life just doesn't get any better...

I know it gets hot down in South Georgia, but you might at least put some shorts on before you start boiling (just in case, ya' know).

In unrelated news, up here in the foothills it was a beautiful, breezy 75* until about 11 o'clock. Even then it only got up to about 80. I feel fall coming and Saturday brew days happening more frequently (i need to get either a kegerator or more bottles or both).

I do all my best work with no pants. I'm testing out a step mash today - so I'm still mashing. About to mash out here in the next 15~20 mins. Shorts had to come back on an hour or so ago... neighbor stopped by, damnit. heh

Well, that took longer than expected. I guess the 3 & 5 year old "helpers" that showed up in the middle of the boil had something to do with it...

Anyway, ten gallons of my "Caribbean Gold" is in the Fermenator. Hallelujah? Amen...

Why You don't post the Recipe?

Like I need ANYTHING else on my "to Brew" list.
