Smells great. Tastes good. Bottle in 10-14 days....can hardly wait.

Thanks for the input and knowledge!

What's that you say? No airlock bubbles, but it was still fermenting? How could that be? Say it ain't so!

I'm not going to go there, but maybe this weekend I will teach myself to drink two beers with one hand using your Avitar as a reference...

Leaves one hand free for the ladies.

The record is 6, and there's a tale of lore to this practice. Of course I am not the only one in the world who thought of this maneuver, but we perfected it.

Quote:
Many moons ago, a friend and I were really in to racing sailboats. We'd basically live on boats all summer, and just travel around to different regattas every weekend. One summer, we were sailing with a man named Ron on his C&C 33 MKII named "Silver Wraith" at the infamous Youngstown Level Regatta.
[Note: The Youngstown Level Regatta has been going on forever, and is held annually at the Youngstown Yacht Club (duh) in the last weekend in July. It's a 3-day event, and attracts boats from all over Lake Ontario. There are no docks to use, so one boat will tie up to the wall and other boats will 'raft' on to that boat, and so on. It is not uncommon to see rafts of 20+ boats tied to one another. During the time of this particular story, there would have been about 500 or so boats at the Youngstown Level Regatta, with an average crew size of about 6 people per boat.]
Anyway, the way it works is there's 3 days of racing sailboats, but the real reason people go is to get drunk and laid. I know people who have illegitimate children from this party, no word of a lie. What'll happen is there will be a 53' trailer full of beer parked there, and it's all-you-can-drink all weekend long. You line up, stick two hands out, and take two beers out of the line with you. Mandatory 2 beers. This left us with a problem - you see, when you're trying to consume the maximum amount of beer, you also need a free hand to greet people and grab women as they pass. Thus, the "Silver Wraith" drinking technique was born.

The Silver Wraith was then brought back to Canada, perfected, and the following year was unleashed in full fury at the annual Easter Seals regatta at the Royal Canadian Yacht Club. At this particular event, there's some silly race and then everyone heads back to the club to enjoy free food and beer (yes, sailors still drink like sailors). Since we were able to accrue an unlimited supply of Steam Whistle pilsner and had many steady hands to participate in the endeavor, my counterpart did what was considered impossible - the 6-level Silver Wraith. There's a photo of it somewhere, and it's never been repeated as far as I know. We pretty much switched to Mount Gay Rum exclusively after that.

So yeah, if you can beat 6, you achieve immortal status. Not only is it tough to get all pouring at the same time, it's a hell of a lot of beer all at once.
Actually Silver Wraith would be a good name for a beer now that I think about it.
