First brew today in about 3 months (usually don't brew during the summer, but I also moved last month, and I'm finishing up my Phd).

I got a Sanyo score on CL last week that is going to (finally!) be turned into a kegerator, so I had the itch to brew again. So nice to brew at my own place (my last apartment yelled at me for having propane) being in a condo unit now. Had 3 different neighbors all come by asking what was going on. The most interested? The 66 year old grandmother!

4.5 hours start to finish on a mild day with 5.5 gallons of Evan!'s Sweet Baby Jesus Pale Ale in the fermenter. Gonna top-crop and brew Janet's Brown Ale next Sunday. Whoo!!

That sounds great! I'm glad it was a good time for you.

I'm going to brew this week, and I'm happy that my schedule this week is light enough to be able to spend a whole day enjoying it.
