Took a tour of the Mayflower brewery in Plymouth MA with a special tasting session for our group. A small craft brewery, very good beers across the board, from golden ales on up through porters and stouts and Scotch ales. No weird beers (blueberry crap or maple bacon nonsense), just really good ale styles. Try them if you are in the area. I was impressed.

Earlier in the day I broke down and bought a 6-gallon glass carboy and a bigger fermenter for wines (that will see double service making more beer, I'm sure).

I spent a bunch of money on three bottles of Rogue XS series IIPA. The kind with the ceramic bottles. The beer is pretty good, but the bottles are the real prize. They've been a staple in my bottling since Thanksgiving 2012, and I now have ten from Rogue, and two from St. Sebastiaan.

I'll empty one on Friday. Saturday, if Friday turns out to be as bad a day as I expect it to be.

I freaked out that my double ryepa was not fermenting after 48 hours. Started to sanitize a new fermenter. The hope was to rack the shandy off a very healthy 6 day old yeast cake and rack the rye on top of it so i could salvage the batch. Shook up the shandy to prep it for settling. Began to pull blow off tube out of the rye and the bubbles started flowing! Spent 2 hours on blowoff duty for shaking up the shandy...

Signed up to go to the June 'Feast Among the Yeast' dinner at the Great Basin Brewery. Should be a blast.

Drooled over the boxes of stainless steel that showed up on my porch this afternoon from Brewhardware.com (aka BobbyM). Great service and shipping from Bobby as usual. The order was placed on my behalf for a birthday present, and he took the time to correct an inaccuracy before processing the order. It wasn't my first order from Bobby, and definitely won't be my last!

Did some comparison shopping on SS QDs to make using my March pump a whole lot easier.
Listened to CYBI on Maharajah, Wychwood Hobgoblin, and Terrapin Wake'n'Bake to get some ideas for my late summer/fall line up.
Looked for a burner upgrade that will work with my SQ14.
Considered whether my 3 kegs will be carbed for Thursday's HB meeting & Saturday's BBQ party

Wait. You're not talking about beer, right?
You're talking about beer. That could have been a whole lot more fun.

Racked my barleywine onto some oak soaked in a fine Bajan rum, took a gravity reading on my Bender clone, and made a starter to harvest the dregs of some CL Hops n Roses (bottled with Brett).

I sampled my Orfy Hobgoblin II clone last night, pretty good with only 4 days priming in the keg
