Today, I did the best thing anyone can do for his or her beer: I ignored the heck out of it. It's doing just fine on its own, thank you very much. Now, please close the fridge door and mind your own business.

Picked up my grain mill. Its a used JSP Maltmill that I scored on craigslist! Was about to dump $200 on a Monstermill setup but ended up going this route...for 80 bucks! Now I get to buy 2 sacks of grain and a mill for the price of a mill

Just drank as much as I could in as little amount of time for scientific purposes. Next, I'm going to observe my state until I can't remember anything anymore. Should be an interesting study... If only could find my pen somewhere around here.

Brewed my first all grain!! Took me about an hour longer then I was shooting for, mashed for 90 minutes instead of 60 and took an hour to cool to pitching temps. Other than that it went perfect, I think...

Gonna mill the grain finer next time, got about 72% efficiency from biab, gonna try a little finer grain next time to see if I can get a little higher. Pretty happy with what I've got so far though!

And.... SWMBO doesn't like me using the stove. Borderline lost her mind at me because of the "smell" in the house. Sounds like tacit consent to get the turkey fryer after all......

I get the same nagging when I brew in the house too! I just don't understand I think the smell of the mash and boil are both better then the fruity candles that are always going all over the house

I had candles going, windows open and sprayed the hell outta the place with Febreeze...... And still my yummy ESB smell overpowered. Smelled great to me. Even the compost bin smelled great with 5 pounds of spent grain in it.
