Bought some fittings to make install a VSG (valve-sightglass) assembly on my BK. All I need is some clear rigid tubing. Couldn't find any at HD or Lowes. Anyone know where I might find some?

I sanitized jars and boiled water for yeast washing tomorrow. If I am feeling fishy I might wash bottles for tomorrow's bottling session.

Finally finished my DIY stir plate.

Old computer fan, 7.5Vdc power supply, an empty cold cuts container, Hard drive magnet, and 1" stir bar bought from Austin Homebrew. Works like a charm.

FaceTimed with my Oktoberfest starter to check on the little guy while I'm out of town.

Ordered another eight pounds of TSP/90 to make my own cleaner. I find when I have more, I use more.

Kegged some blackberry wheat. (should have kegged a week a ago), sampled the IIPA and added another 2oz of hops in secondary, sampled the apricot ale thats been sitting on 15lbs of apricots for about a week. Put keg of kolsch back in fridge hope the yeast cleaned out the buttery flavor, the smell was gone when I blew off some co2 fingers crossed i should have known 7 days was a little to short before kegging
