Nice Orfy!

It's no fair my kids get a calendar they look forward to. Finally, one for the adults!

You know, that would really be a great marketing tool for a commercial brewery to use to promote their product. It would be easy to do, as it would only require a simple change to the top of the box.

We're 4 behind already. I won't get my act together on this till the 20th any way. That ends up being a better average.

That is a great idea!!

Ed: You meant to say "ausgezeichnet", right? Excellent!!

You mean racks like these? : I have 15 1/2 pictured here, of which 5 1/2 cases are conditioning (to be lagered) and another 3 1/2 cases in the garage lagering...

Yes, it is, but you're only seeing a part of it. I also have 2 cabinets with glasses up the wazoo.

I also have 2 stainless steel medical cabinets where I store all the equipment: hoses, canes, syphons, washers, caps, etc.

The large boxes are 55# malt (they are on a dolly for easy moving) and the boxes have bottles in them. Behind the malt and underneath the shelves there are also about a dozen cases of mead and conditioning brews.

(RE-EDITED with smaller pictures).

SUPERB idea Orfy.

And I think you need to adopt a 40 year old son Bill.

Oh please, let me volunteer.

Hey, just leave me whatever you want.

Sorry to thread-jack Orfy. What are you going to use as the keggerator? And what kind of taps are you thinking?
