I bought 5 lbs of some malt, one of another, and five ounces of Citra. I'd list what those malts are, but I'm exhausted, having moved eighteen tons of batteries during the course of the day, and no, that is not an exaggeration.

I plan on doing some brewing on Friday, for a change.

Bought some beer line for my keg, a racking cane to hack up to turn into a bottle filler, and some San Diego Super yeast to make a starter for this weekends brew a rye ipa.
No yeast, no beer. No beer, no civilization. Therefore, we really have yeast to thank for all our modern-day conveniences and tasty beer

I did a ton for beer this week . I purchased a 20 gal blichmann ! Made a 10 gal mashtun , bought 16 gal primary fermenter, a plate chiller, a chugger pump , all hoses and camlock qd's , and a blichmann burner, all this so I can brew now while working on thelectricbrewery . After the honey do list of course . Because of this big purchase and endless research on hbt I believe the brew gods are with me . A co worker comes up to me and gives me for free three ball lock cornys and a 5 lb co2 can with qd's and party spigot ! Great week thank you homebrew gods !

I checked the temp on my 2nd version of Hopped * Confused. The temp stayed at 68F,within range for the German ale/kolsh yeast. And initial fermentation is finishing up to boot. Gotta take the store bought spring water jugs over to crystal springs to get local spring water. I should still be able to get it for 25c per gallon,vs 79c per in the store.
Gotta finish getting stuff cleaned 1 more time & ready for 2nd brew this week,a dark lager with the same German yeast.
