Well, THANK YOU Irene!! Thanks for dropping that big arsed tree on my new (1.5 years old) brew house. Thanks for crushing my new 6 tap kegerator, my fermentation chamber, oh and lets not forget the glass carboys you smashed to bits! I will NOT be naming my next brew after you, wench!

But, on a positive note, I did save the Harley that was parked in there, only dings and scratches. Fermentation chamber "may" be saved, we'll see once the rest of the tree gets removed. I'm being told the entire building will collapse once the tree moves any at all. The roof is actually being supported by 3 twelve packs of empties. All's not lost, as of right now I still have one carboy

I have vessels, some contain beer.

That sucks, but could have been worse. It's only a shed and some brewing eqpt. All easily replaced.

Funny you won't be naming a brew after Irene. We were supposed to be down in OBX this week. I'm kegging a DWeizen tonight and have named it Dirty Whore Dunkelweizen after Irene. We're taking it down on our re-scheduled trip end of Sept. to tap it in her (dis)honor.

I concur with you needing a beer.
"Sometimes when I reflect back on all the beer I drink I feel ashamed. Then I look into the glass and think about the workers in the brewery and all of their hopes and dreams. If I didn't drink this beer, they might be out of work and their dreams would be shattered. Then I say to myself, it is better that I drink this beer and let their dreams come true than be selfish and worry about my liver." --Jack Handey

Where can we send the yeast vials to repopulate?
