I don't get many days off, but when i do, I play hard. Because I work hard too. Today I decided to do nothing but make a batch of beer and relax all day. I have some Gov't Mule Pandora radio blastin, some Oaked/Bourbon arrogant ale clone flowing, and a porter mashing right now. It is a perfect day in FL. Fired up a cigar and just chillin out. It son't get much better than this.

I could really get used to this. Too bad I have a long way to go till retirement. Anyone else brewing today?

What are you brewing?

I am so jealous! I was thinking about taking a vacation day on Thursday and doing the same thing. I did last month and it was the best day ever. Actually brewed back to back batches and finished just when the wife and kids were getting home.

Carry on John!

Nice, it's like fishing, the worst day brewing (if there is such a thing) is better than the best day working. I've never had a bad brew day though. Citra/vienna smash sounds perfect, I've some citra coming to try in my special red, carry on.
