Default Carpal Tunnel Surgery

Well next Friday, I'm going under the knife for right hand Carpal Tunnel surgery, as well as right thumb trigger release (left hand was done two years ago). I will be out on disability for a month.

I made sure I had all my beer tasks done before then. I just kegged my Helles Lager and my Scottish 70/ this week, I now have 10 gallons of home brew to hold me over for the next month! I feel lost not having any more brews in the works for the next month, what will I do?

Study up for the BJCP test. Takes lots of research, or so I'm told.
