Probably not a good idea! If you have kids, please think twice before brewing today unless your SWMBO truly enjoys having you out of the house and/or actually enjoys brewing with you.

Happy Mother's Day!

LOL!

Not only am I brewing today, I'm also making cheese after the boil. My daughter got me flowers yesterday (she's at work now) and my son seems to have forgotten me. He's 17, though, and only thinks about his girlfriend, and video games.

It's a good thing I don't get too hung up "greeting card holidays".

Well, I don't have kids, and I have been promising my mother to mail her some samples of my beers for a while now.

So, I think she is going to get a couple six-packs from today's brew. Seems to be a good choice.

That's a great gift! You gotta love a son who sends you beer. That would definitely make you my favorite child. Much better than flowers!

Yeah - I'm taking the weekend off! Had to get the house tidy yesterday for the MIL to come over, but now one of my little girls is sick, so that might not happen anyway. But for me to brew today would mean SWMBO would either (a) be at the divorce lawyer tomorrow, or (b) sending me to counseling for my brewing addiction. Maybe both...

OT, I couldn't find a relevant thread to mention that Yooper's new (And probably temporary) user name is a definite keeper!

Happy mothers day, Yoop!

No brewing for me. I got to attend an all day home brewer appreciation party near Grand Rapids yesterday. Still recovering. Wife was a bit bummed about her mothers day, but I took her shopping for a new phone plan and I made Zuppa Toscana and Apple Cobbler to make up for it. Plus I unveiled the DVD of Caprica to surprise her.

If I'm lucky I could clean up the bottles on the counter, but that is not fun for me.

But, I did win a Rauchbier kit at the party and got some cool stuff like a bottle opener, Rogue T shirt, etc. And now I'm eating Zuppa Toscana with fresh bread and washign it down with someone's Esspresso Stout (or porter I don't know). Soon to top it off with apple cobbler. I guess I did pretty good for mothers day myself!

Didn't brew, but got up before SWMBO, as usual, and bottled my Oktoberfest Ale before she roused. Then set in to cook a nice MD lunch for SWMBO and my mother.

I dug a hole and transplanted a 12' Red Maple.

That sucked. Happy Mother's Day, Honey.
