Checked the gravity of an IPA I brewed last week....got freaked out when I saw some green/white mold floating in my testing beaker!! Turns out the beer is fine...Im about 99% sure it came from my bucket nozzle when I tested the OG and forgot to wash it out. Talk about almost a diaster!! Good news is it tasted great, and checked in just under 6.5%.
The man banging on the door yelled "Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms!" I just assumed it was more supplies.

Turned down the temp on my fridge to lager my Vienna Lager. Went in search of New Glarus Barleywine. Stopped at the LHBS to pick up some Centennial hops for my next brew.

Decided to start a new homebrew club. Right now, we're at a whopping 2 members. At our second meeting (February sometime), we plan to invite a couple self proclaimed beer lovers from in the neighborhood that have only had BMC. I'm extremely un-judgmental, so if they walk away loving BMC more, so be it. At least they'll sample other things.

We're debating whether to hit them hard (IPAs, Belgian, sours) or just ease them in.

There is a larger local club that seems pretty cool, but it's a little far.

Cleaned and de-labeled bottles in my 100 qt cooler for bottling day tomorrow: we're putting up 5 gallons of ginger beer and 5 gallons of BlackHook Clone.

Figured I'd drop a thermometer in there to test its heat retention to make sure it will make a good mash tun. Hopefully it'll hold the 140 for an hour or so.

Carried my new kettle inside after it was delivered. The delivery guy left it in front of my garage instead of brining it to the door. He must have gotten tired of my dogs going nuts every time he comes. I wouldn't have known it was here if not for the shipment tracking notification. I also checked the weather to see if I can brew on Friday or Saturday. It's not looking promising. I'll likely take that time to thoroughly clean all of my gear and maybe see if I can squeeze in some time outside to check the boil-off rate of the new kettle.
