Just autoclaved a bunch of slant vials to start up my yeast bank. Also innoculated a few plates with 3787 and Pacman from a bottle of Imperial Younger's Special Bitter.

Cleaning day for me: fermenters, brew pots, mash tuns, hoses, kegs, etc. Plus bought 50# of 2-row and 3# of roasted barley. Big brew day tomorrow, and time to keg my Sculpin clone. Tastes pretty damn close (from memory) in the fermenter.

Wait. You're not talking about beer, right?
You're talking about beer. That could have been a whole lot more fun.

Yesterday actually - brewed up a whiskey rye porter, pulled off some samples of my arctic brown ale and the black coffee RyePA, and prepped the cold steeped coffee to add to the primary of the black coffee RyePA.

Added the cold steeped coffee to the black coffee RyePA. Waiting for the obvious sign of fermentation from yesterday's brew session (not yet worried enough to pull a hydro sample). Watched a couple of old episodes of BrewingTV while I ran on the treadmill.

Got about 90% done on my first MLT. Still need the false bottom an pick up tube. I made an insulation wrap and lid for this right after this pic too.

Racked my Kolsch to the secondary to continue layering in the garage for a few more weeks. Bonus was finding my stir bar in the bottom of the bucket instead of pitching it with the trub.

Kegged 5 gallons of BM's Centennial Blonde and 5 gallons of Cascade IPA; currently soaking the fermentors and equipment and thinking about a pregame home brew.

EDIT: And finally paid for a membership (actually last night) because of everything this site has done for my beer.

Turned a stainless steel carbonator insert for plastic bottles. 5 bucks sure beats 20.
