Stirred up what I take to be a stuck fermentation of my West Coast IPA. Studied up on Belgian Pale and Belgian IPA recipes. Plotted the dry hop for next week.

I have too many bottles to clean. Hah.
Srry about the redskins (go gmen) but i wish i had your problem about having too many bottles to clean. I dont have enough. Trying to get a hold of 60 22oz bottles for 2 different 5gallon batches i have going right now. And i think its about time and pay the ridiculous overcharge of what the stores charge for bottles since i cant get enough recycled ones. If anyone knows of a good spot to order 22's online id appreciate it.

That's not the football (or in reality, hand-egg) I care about. DC United clinched a playoff spot, so that's good enough for me

Is there a Queens Freecycle e-mail net? I live in a small town, and even we have one. Just Google it and see. City as big as Queens, it's likely to have thousands of members. People offer stuff up for free, and people ask for stuff for free.

That's how I just got 55 Grolsch pint bottles and about 30 larger Fischer bottles (like Grolsch but larger, maybe 22-24 oz).

I just purchased a 2L, flip-top bottle, and I have to empty it. It will be a very interesting week, and because I bought the beer during the fourth quarter of the Packers/Rams game (which, I'm pleased to note, ended in victory for the Pack), I can't use the old Wisconsin excuse of "Drinking during a Packers game" to break into it.

I'm about to hit the NordicTrack, and then draw off a pint.

First time responding to this thread... Today I bought a keggle for the first time. I'm psyched to do ten gal. batches.

Yesterday did my first dry hops on an American Amber Ale that is in the keg. I bagged 1oz of Citra and dumped it into the keg.

Had a busy weekend - cleaned 100 bottles, my new BIAB bag and new hop strainer. Then I bottled my nut brown ale and apple Brown Betty ale (I also started on labels for those two beers.). Made an unexpected stop at the LHBS today and got my grain bill, hops and yeast for my batch of RIS I'll be brewing this week along with a Tuscan Merlot kit which I mixed and hooked up to a blow-off tube. After cleaning up from all that I racked open a Oak Jacked Imperial Pumpkin Ale that was a nice end to the evening!

Bought the ingredients for my first recipe I came up with myself (a California Common). Was going to brew it today, but my assistant brewmaster was under the weather, so we'll wait until next weekend.

Made a label for my just-bottled batch, have to work on getting the registration right so they print correctly on the label stock I have.
