It will be now! My shipment from Midwest got here at 11:40am. When my wife finishes what she's doin,we can (hopefully) get a double brew day going. I ordered an 6.5G BB ale pale with the spigot that has a knob like a hose spigot. It also looks like my cooper's bottling wand will fit up inside the spout! I got her a 3 piece airlock that looks to be from the same company mine did from the LHBS. And...1oz of Perle hops for my ale.
She'll be brewing a BB summer ale kit/steeping grains. I'll be doing up an amber ale that,if it gets as dark as I'm thinking it may,be more of an "old brown mawg" ale. lolz. The Perle & Saaz hops should go well together.

I've still got about 11 bottles of my summer pale ale left for the occasion. Maybe have some between batches with my co brewer wife. Happy day everybody!

I take it this is the day on which homebrewing was legalized back in the 1970's?

Heating mash water for my first ever, 10g batch. After an expected trip to the hardware store to replace a faulty propane regulator, it's on!

Just got the water in the brew kettle goin for the wife. I'm trying the use of a cake cooling rack in the bottom of the kettle so the grain bag doesn't burn. The rest is on momma. With my guidance,of course.
