Went to buy 2 carboys from a guy on craigslist, ended up coming home with three. Guess it's time to bulk age a big stout or something

Brought some grains for my next brew, a Irish red Ale, and some PBW and soaked my copper manifold in it.

Made a swamp cooler because my temp controlled freezer is full and I wanted to brew another batch tomorrow. Took my saison off the heater and set it aside for now. Cleaned up some bottles, made a starter of pacman. Made sure all my AG gear is clean and ready to go in the morning. Crushing my grains a bit later today I think.

Just got my grains for my next brew, Belgian strong ale, and a few more goodies from AHS. I need to pick a day this weekend to brew. Too much stuff going on on Memorial Day weekend.

Monday, brewed an Arrogant Bastard clone and made a 1.029 beer with some leftover hops form third runnings.
Yesterday, brewed a small batch of Saison, just to grow some yeast for future brews. I made my first true mistake and accidentally doubled the late hop additions. Maybe I'll call it a west coast saison. Finished the day with a trip to the thrift store where I got two nonic glasses for $2. They also had some set of dimpled steins and pilsener glasses, but we've got no more room in the cabinets, and the basement is already full of brewing crap. Including the pilsener I brewed a week and a half ago, that's 4 different beers fermenting and two glasses--I'm on a beer streak. It's good to be done with school!

Got 24 750ml EZ-top swing top bottles in the mail, put the tops on them. Now waiting with baited breath for my brew kit to show up tomorrow.
Hopelessly lost... But I'm making great time!

Kegged 2 batches, added a healthy dryhop to a half-full keg already on tap, and pulled out a few old barleywines to chill for weekend guests.
so many sour things
