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.
