I cleaned out all the disconnects and cleaned/lubed/replaced all the gaskets on some kegs, then I cleaned out and sanitized all the lines on my kegerator, then I kegged 4 beers, and finally I cleaned out my fermentation temperature control, moved it out to the garage, and got it ready for some lagering in a few days.

Moved batch of blue moon clone to secondary so I could rinse and harvest the yeast. Brew day with that yeast is tomorrow hopefully.

Was hoping to get my Kölsch in bottles tonight, but it'll have to wait until morning.

Did a lot of 'research' tonight and came home with 6 cases of 750s a friend snagged for me. Brewed another version of my Citra Nelson saison and finally put a blow off tube on right away instead of waiting until there was a mess already.

Brewed a Belgian quad in my new mash cooler. Missed my efficiency badly but did a second mash for a small beer that ended up near 1.050 OG. Should be nice to have two Belgians to try out.

Also used some of the second mash wort to make a starter for my Marylambic wild yeast project. Oh and burned my self pretty badly with home made candi syrup.

Cleaning up after yesterday afternoon's brew day. Tired & buzzed over,but it was worth it. I now have 11 gallons of beer fermenting from two brewdays this week.

I was going to like your post, but then I saw that you burned yourself. Hot sugar syrup burn sounds awful. That sounds terrible!

I've made a few batches of syrup myself and never been 100% happy with results. Found D-180 online for $5.50 a pouch. More expensive than homemade, but still less than a bottle of a commercail quad and that's enough syrup to make a 5 gallon batch.

Yeah, I will probably just use that next time, depending on how well the beer comes out with the homemade version. The burn was only a few spots on my arm and a tiny drop on my face, could have been much worse. Note: non-boiling sugar can still be hot enough to boil water explosively when mixed.
