Great thread and I'm glad I found it since my wife really just doesn't care about my work in the realm of science. Yet she will sure as hell drink it.

I got my CO2 tank and my nitrogen tank filled. I also purchased ingredients for an Irish Red I am brewing tomorrow.

Upcoming Brews: Belgian Pale Ale

Total gallons brewed: 470 gallons

My grain came in for the next two batches after the Trappist I am doing this weekend. I love opening a big heavy box full of freshly crushed grain, sticking my face in it and taking a deep breath.

Vowed never to post in threads that are designed to go on forever and ever in a pointless endeavor to fill the Internet with more words.

Oops. Damn.

I haven't done anything yet, except this post. Later tonight I plan on drinking beer, but to put it into the context, I plan on sampling my latest batch of homebrew, an American IPA. It is almost a full 3 weeks into bottle conditioning. It was quite tasty at 2 weeks.

Thats awesome. I'm an ortho. tech. and work in a busy orthopaedic office. If I started putting my brewing stuff in our autoclave I can only imagine the stern talking to I'd get.

I just ordered the ingredients to make Yoopers House Pale Ale.

I started my last step in my 1056 (wash yeast) starter for tomorrows brew session.
Went to the local dairy and bought eight 5 gallon buckets for $1.50 each.
Stopped at the dollar store and got 4 containers to store my specialty grains.

Tomorrow I hope to get two 15 gallon SS pots. Craigslist buy.

This is an excellent book! I'd recommend it to anyone no matter where they are in their brewing.
