I had a hard plastic/ rubber coated miller lite keg a buddy gave me a month or so ago. With an oscillating saw and a half hour of determination I got the cover off to find that it is basically a base-less, handle-less ALUMINUM keg with a rounded top and bottom. With some "aftermarket" handles and a crudely fashioned base I now have a new HLT.

Peeled the labels off of and washed a bunch of beer bottles. Agitated 42 bottled Belgian Ales to rouse the yeast and (hopefully) get some more carbonation in them.

Drank a couple of Red Hook IPA's after a long motorcycle ride near beautiful Sandy, Oregon.

Cleaned bottles. Currently sanitizing in the dishwasher. Soon I'll be bottling my IPA: my first all-grain batch! Can't wait for this, as well as the other two still in carboys, to be ready!

washed and sanitized bottles and bottling equipment after 10pm at night because that's the only time I can get to myself for beer making on weekdays.

Bottling after work today. Bavarian Hefe. First since 2004.


Well worth the effort


Prost!

Woke up at 6AM, turned the shower on hot, staggered to my 62 degree spare room and stared at my fermenting brews in the nude. When the cold got to me, I jumped in the hot shower.

It was a good day.

I ignored the Belgian Strong that has been in the secondary for about a month while I washed and de-labeled some bottles. I have to act as if I despise it or else I will be tempted to "take a reading" just so I can taste some. I want it, I want it bad, but I have to pretend it is a diseased hooker just to stay away.

I just bottled five gallons of Irish red ale (1.047 SG, 1.010 FG, 27 IBUs, 17.5 SRM) and five gallons of Scottish Heavy 70/- ale (1.037 OG, 1.009 FG, 15 IBUs, 13.7 SRM).


God I wish I had a kegerator :\

Totally just snorted Jack and 7 from my nasal passages. Thanks for the laugh... and just...say...no...to Belgians until they're ready, which could be a while...
