    It's a week later and no real activity. It's going down the drain. I'll pick up another pack on
    Tuesday for next week's brew. I need another stir bar anyway.

    I certainly will. Slowly, over the course of a month.

    I was making a ten gallon batch of Irish Red yesterday. First, my liquid yeast wasn't stepped
    up enough for pitching and then when I drained my mash into the boil kettle, there wasn't a
    trace of red!S...

    I started my Wyeast British Ale II two days before my brew day. On brew day there wasn't enough
    activity to pitch so I just used dry yeast. The starter is moving along now so I'm wondering if
    I should...

    That looks great, VioletBug! What's on tap for the maiden flight?

    Looks really good! What did you use on the ceiling? Does it have to be resistant to humidity,
    or does your hood keep it in check well enough?

    The tiles are all on the walls now, except the south wall where the door is. That's because I
    still need a couple of windows before I can finish framing it, but between the French doors and
    the window...

    I haven't updated for a while. Most of the tiling is done. Things keep getting in the way so
    it's not going as fast as I like, but it hasn't stalled. The halogen light I have on when I
    work washes out...

    Some of the most fun I've had was putting a system together one piece at a time. Some I built,
    some I saved my pennies and bought. Welcome to the hobby and homebrewtalk. You're going to have
