When I miss the UPS guy I can go down to the distribution office after 8pm and pick my package up there.

Kegged 5 gal of Lemon Lime Hef, and 5 gal of Honey Nut Brown, and added a four port manifold and new lines to my keggerator. Upgraded my serving capacity from one to four. I only have three kegs for this weekend's cookout though... Looks like I need to get brewing!!!

Yelled at my wife. For the past month I've been brewing a beer with lemon peel and dry hopping and as soon I start transferring my beer from the secondary to the bottling bucket she walks in with a handful of lint from the dryer and starts breaking it sort as she throws it away. Needless to say my Boston Lemon IPA became Laundry Lint Beer. There went a month of work. So pissed! It smelled awesome! So pissed!!!!

a lot of cleaning !!! I also bought a 6 foot corian counter top with a back splash and l brackets to use as a brewing prep table... I cut out a opening and mounted my barley crusher in it as well as framed a basin catch to hold my mill bucket so I can crush at the table..... set up my instruments...... scales....lab..etc....I did all this in my brewhouse aka the garage my SWMBO wants to frigin kill me !!! I'm so happy !!

Yeah, that and if you we're dry hopping your beer. It also allows it to condition better and makes a clearer beer.

installed "Brew Target" on my windows 8 computer (super glad it was compatible), updated all my recipes and ingredients. I still won't have any time to brew for another month but at least I can start to plan everything for a 2 batch session.

I ordered three new kegs, for my keezer project. Im excited to see this come together. Also, trying to finish my Mash tun/cooler project. I stupidly ordered random fittings, that don't fit together. Now Im having trouble trying to locate a SS 90* elbow 1/2" barb x 1/2" mpt.

Those bottles from the German Wernesgruner pils have cool crests on the neck & "original german beer" around the shoulder. so I saved 5 to re-use & 1 for the collection. Put a gallon of PBW in my lil cooler (the one in my brewery pics) & the labels slipped off clean in an hour. So I'm soaking them,& clean the ones I've been drinking mine out of.
Dang midwest is still 6 days behind with orders,might not get my supplies in time for Saturday. * Just found out my car's done! Hoorah!
**Correction,the Wernesgruner labels slip off in 30 minutes or less. Fast like Paulaner & Franziskaner.
