well lets see back to this Wed- went to LHBS, two friends called in grain bills, I picked them up and a few supply's I needed and our three pounds of fresh Cascade came in, oh and a Raspberry Chocolate Port kit for my mother in-law.Came home and 1 friend came over and we transferred 35g into secondary and cleaned up. Then Thursday went to LHBS picked up some more stuff for me and a friend. Then today went to LHBS picked up 2 gain bills for me a new 20g fermenter, also went to supply house and picked up parts and made a Hop bag holder with a 3" pvc coupling and stainless all-thread, made two one for each boil kettle. Now getting ready for a 40g brew day tomorrow. I love Brew days Fire up The popcorn machine, crank the tunes get washed up,and sanitized then let the house smell of grain and hop's.
Why can't every day be a Brew day?

Went to the LHBS and picked up hops, grain, and lactose for a milk stout I'm brewing Sunday along with some bottle caps and corn sugar so I can bottle up my California Common. I love beer weekends.
No yeast, no beer. No beer, no civilization. Therefore, we really have yeast to thank for all our modern-day conveniences and tasty beer

Bought some bottles to harvest. Picked up some tubing for bottling, and a Thermometer to watch the temps. Filled swamp cooler with water and bottles of ice. Temp at 54* atm I am going to remove some ice bottles

Transferred my Amber Ale to secondary. Cleaned primary and filled it with an Oktoberfest batch.

Amber for Golf trip at end of the month and Oktoberfest for neighbor's oktoberfest in October.

Also, tried my first crack at homemade baby back ribs while brewing...turned out great.

Very productive day.

Went to bell's and picked up 5 gallons of wort for the homebrew contest. Also went to a couple nice bottle shops and bought some Jolly pumpkin so my 2 hour drive wasn't without benefits.
