Default Man, that felt good.

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!!

glad to hear you're finishing up the Ph.D., i'm just starting mine... grad school tends to get in the way of brewing! glad to hear you're back at it.

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.
