Purged the pressure on a keg of fermenting Christmas Ale that had stalled. It sounded like it was rapidly building pressure again just as it was purged, and I stupidly opened the valve to let it out (being in a hurry to leave for work) and it sprayed beer on my pant leg.

Yes, the sound of the keg rapidly re-pressurizing was the beer inside foaming up!

Before I went to work I applied another clear coat to a wood inlay that will hold my mash tun. When I got to work I finished drilling out the holes for my HLT for a valve and sight glass (I just built a new stand and use to only use 2 vessels) and tonight I will most likely prime my control panel arm so I can set up my control panel and do a shake down brew on Sat night to get all the bugs out. I need to test a few things to see if I need to weld additional plates on my rig.

At work right now, but off tomorrow, so plan to have a few tonight :-) Checked my two brown ales and IIPA, bubbling has just about stopped and FG is very close as of a couple days ago. Gave my kegged IPA a shot of CO2.

Stopped at my LHBS and bought a pound each of Caramel 80 and roasted barley and 3 packages of dry yeast. Talked to one of the workers there and special ordered 50 lbs of brewers 2-row and 10 lbs of red wheat malt. Looked at buckets at Walmart and Home Depot to see if they would work into my brewing and decided not. Checked on my spiced winter warmer that I made yesterday to find it bubbling away quite rapidly considering the room it is in is at 60 degrees and I used Munton's dry yeast. Gave an opinion on substituting malt extract from Breiss for the extract from Mr. Beer in another forum and thought about having a brew with my lunch but decided that I had things to do that precluded that so I will wait and have one with my dinner. Spent some time thinking about what to brew next when one of my 3 fermenters is finally empty again and worried about the hop combination for the pale ale that is still fermenting. Whew! I think I have had a full day already and I haven't started reading a book about beer.

I took advantage of a little extra room in the autoclave at work and got my plate chiller sterilized for the next batch.
