I gave my wife her first bottle of her Summer Shandy I made her. It was carbed up pretty well and had a nice head on it. She says there is lot of lemonade up front but finishes a little bitter. She also said since she hasn't had a summer shandy since August she couldn't tell me how close it was. She also asked me to make my Blueberry wheat beer for her best friend's bridal shower. We served as "Something Blue Ale" at our rehearsal dinner and her friend loved it and has been asking ever since for more. The wife even wants some bottles with corks and caps so they look nice she says.
]So I guess this is for yesterday, ok went to plumbing supply house and got parts went to hydrolic parts store and got o-rings. Went to wood store and picked up a pice of Spanish Cedar for aging beers with. Came home put a sight glass on brew kettle and filled and marked water levels on it. Finnished a friends mash tun it looks great. Worked up a brown ale recipe, went to brew store and picked up grain for my brown ale and a grain bill for a Barley Wine a friend and I are doing Sat. Talked to a guy about home brewing try to get as many people in to it as possible. Then went to said friends house and drilled holes for his faucets through the Kegel and got it all hooked up looks great and finnished the day with fresh on tap brew. That day is like a sore Peter, you just can't beat it. [/SIZE]

Also yesterday. Prepared bottles for tomorrow night's bottle session. That will free up my big batch fermentation bucket. Also got my internet connection back up after a couple of days. That will allow me to buy the Beer Smith license since demo is up. I can tell I will use alot.

Transferred my wheat to a keg to secondary for a week before I start carbing it. Will be Transferring my Frankenbeer (Trappist I pitched the wrong yeast into) to a keg too to secondary for a couple weeks. I gotta free up those carboys for more new stuff.
Speaking of new stuff... brewing an English pale ale right now. Draining the grains (BIAB) then starting the boil.
