Default 1,000 beer update

Fellow brewers,

The 'quest' for a thousand bottles of beer {or ale}
{The big buzz}
is still going along swimmingly.
I have been real nervous and out of sorts lately
as I have not been following my own best advise,
to keep my primarys full.
I had a two week delay in my monthly DME aquisition
having forgotten to order it, but am now back on track.
315 bottles 'bottled' and on their shelves back in the brewery.
135 bottles 'in their primarys'.
450 bottles of 'beer' are here, so to speak.
If... I keep my primarys full and keep the DME in stock...
Before hot weather...

I can achieve 1,000 bottles of my 'acht pfund Hammerbier'.
{8 Lb Hammerbeer}
And of course I am dreaming up ways to document this great achievement photographically, to be able to share the experiance with anyone who would care to check it out
The brewery is cramped and may take several pictures to get it all in... shelves to the right and shelves to the left at point blank range!
Layed out on the kitchen floor would be easy as it is near the brewery.
But yuck, for a great feat of brewing, should have an interesting background.

Out in one of the big chicken pens layed out,
1,000 bottles, rows and rows of beer with beautiful Rhode island reds and Marans everywhere,
with me in the background holding old 'Redneck',
my favorite Maran rooster, under one arm,
and 'Red' the Rhode islander under the other?
How about that one?
Or setup in the front pasture with the new spring grasses and trees and Red {mule} & Sugarmae {horse} behind the rows of bottles,
with 'me' of course holding Red and Sugar.
All them bottles in perspective, in one mass, in one picture!
A big square of bottles,
1,000 of them!
5:30 am ...
I recon I'll have me a homebrew.

good luck with the plan.
i got to 500 or so but then started sharing with my friends at work so am back down to 400 bottled and 10 gallons in secondary.
if i could control myself maybe i could reach your magic number but i have my doubts


simplified signature:
beer, wine, cheese in various stages of production
