Dumped 5 Gallons of liquid Band-Aids down the shower drain

Accidentally dry hopped The wrong beer, putting 2 ounces of Centennial into a Belgian pale ale (and left them there)

Dry hopped the intended beer with 2 ounces of Centennial, an American IPA

Cleaned my beer lines for the first time in five years of using kegs (not the same lines as when I started, though!)

Sat down to HBT and a pint of double brown ale...ahhhh, the reward is always so satisfying.

I think the fact this thread is so long is a testament to the brewing activity of HBT members!

And to stay on topic, I shook my yeast starter numerous times today to keep it active and aerated. I'll toss it in the fridge first thing in the morning to cold crash for a while and then get brewing and decant the liquid later on before pitching.

Drank a barleywine.

Taste tasted my all Belma pale ale for the first time. Turns out I don't like Belma! Taste and (even worse) smell, are just bizarre. Tastes like grass covered strawberries! Good thing this was only a 5 gallon batch and Belma only cost 5 dollars a pound!
