Well, I reminded them that Jesus' first miracle was turning water into wine - so he was a homebrewer himself. They countered with something about public drunkenness, and I explained to them that homebrewing is an art and the vast majority of homebrewers aren't attempting to get trashed, otherwise I'd just got buy a bottle of the cheapest Vodka I could find. They seemed pretty set that I was an exception to the rule, and that most homebrewers were functioning alcoholics.

It's really not productive to "argue" an issue with someone when you're the only one with personal experience in it.

Whatever.

Tonight I kegged a strawberry blonde and an IPA. cleaned out my rootbeer keg and associated lines. Took delivery of some hardware from Bobby for my keggle build. And helped some guys out by lending my bottle opener at a music in the park event here in town.

Just tell them that, by that logic, ALL people who COOK, would be gluttons. That means everyone, including themselves.

Overhauled a keg fridge that I got off Craigslist. Also kegged my (accidentally over-efficient) 8% ABV APA and put it to bed in the keg fridge.

Split 5.5 gallons of Centennial Blonde ale between 12 bottles and the remainder into a keg.

First time saving the yeast for a future batch.

Decanted 2 2000ml starters and transferred to mason jars for tomorrows kolsch. Picked up some extra hose to add a pre chiller to tomorrows batch since it is going to be in the triple digits . Today was 106!!! Stay cool!

Bottled two gallons of wine. One of my 750ml's bombed (clean split along bottom rim) shortly after corking. Really didn't think this batch needed a decant with all the racking I did. These were recycling center bottles, so their strength is probably a tad diminished anyway. No biggie - puts me out less than a dollar.
