Rackedy Russian imperial stout to a Carnot so it can sit for a couple of months. Now my fermenting bucket is available for the Founders breakfast stout I'm brewing on Sunday.

Yesterday, I spent the better part of a two-hour drive, explaining what little I know about homebrewing to a detail-obsessed coworker. Strange thing is, I was always under the understanding that he didn't drink. He seemed genuinely interested, which surprised me most of all. After a long, excrement-laden, unpleasant day of working on critical power equipment in rooms that do not fit people over 5'8" in height (such as my 6'3" self), I needed to wrap my brain around something else. I tried a fully-conditioned bottle of my Christmas ale. It tasted strange, but it was still pleasant. I will probably have another right now.

Went to brew store picked up 100lb-2row,50lb-pale malt, specialty grains for 4 brews. 3 carboys haulers, hops cause they where on sale and why not. Went to plumbing supply house picked up fittings for strut and gas piping.

When I got home I cut UNI-Strut for brew kettles and gas piping, bolted everything in place and re-ran my gas line through mechanical room and out wall for brew rig. Fitted up my piping up to burners just have to thread it in the morning.

Went to a beer tasting of Boulevard Brewing Co. SmokeStack series and bought a few brews and some Buffalo Trace Bourbon to rewet barrels for aging.

Oh and dropped of some shelves a friend wanted me to haul off to the LHBS. Free to me and I have no where for them, nice shelves to.
Why can't every day be a Brew day?

Darkness, that's a heck of a beer day!!! I see a strut single-tier in my near future as well.

I spent 3 hours talking beer and having a blast with Chris White (Labs) and Justin & Doc from the Brewing Network! Fantastic folks!

Wait. You're not talking about beer, right?
You're talking about beer. That could have been a whole lot more fun.

Went to the LHBS and picked up some vanilla beans for an all grain stout I'll be brewing soon. Also got some high temp hose for my MLT. Came home and sampled my first bottle of Cream Ale. Damn, it came out awesome, though could stand for another week of carbonation.
