I have to go in the order in which they happened this morning:
1. Bought a large spoon and a large whisk.
2. Bought a pound of 2-row, 3oz. of Citra, a pack of Safale S-05, a large nylon grain bag, Whirlfloc tablets, and put my name down for Vojvodina and Magnum rhizomes. I was the second person on the list.
3. Ate lunch, and then picked up some cheesecloth for a rice wine; I'll pick up the yeast this weekend.
4. Picked up an airlock and a #3 stopper.

What's next? I might brew on Saturday: I might do my wild rice wine. I will definitely do something to make adult beverages. I'll also be making a non-alcoholic potato salad. It has bacon and blue cheese in it, so it will taste great.

Raced over to the LHBS during lunch and got a 3 gallon BB with stopper, some airlocks, hop bags and some DME. All so I can use the 2 gallons of 2nd runnings from the IIPA I made on Monday. I *really* hate to waste wort!

Weighed and milled grains for a porter I am planning to brew tomorrow; weighed out hops for the porter as well. Beamed at my four full fermentors and enjoyed that warm, fuzzy feeling knowing that the pipeline will no longer be anemic. Tomorrow's batch should bring the total to 27 gallons since 1/7. Time to purchase another 50 lb sack of 2-row.

Picked up some barrels with brettanomyces from a winery my farming business is partnered with. Going to start playing with all brettanomyces fermentation.

Bottle pasteurized my ginger cider, whatever it is. I was thinking that the potassium sorbate in the cider I used to back sweeten would probably keep it from doing much refermentation, but my tester bottle said otherwise. I hadn't planned on carbing this batch at all, but it's nice this way too.

So far just checked my airlock water level on my sours. 2 were good one was low but the squares in the center bell were still covered so I think I'm ok.
