Yeah It's from IKEA. As is most of the stuff in my house...

I'm not crazy about the bottle holder shelf add-ons but it's better than having bottles crammed on shelves in my storage room, laundry room, and a few other places. I might add some more shelves where the kegs are sitting. Im about to bottle roughly 100 bottles of wine plus 50 750ml beer bottles. I'll need way more space. I'll have another 100 bottles of wine right behind that in a few weeks. Guess I should start drinking...

I assume you mean commercial swaps and not home brew? I have a bunch of homebrew sours if any one wants to swap

Brewed up a Chimay Grande Reserve Clone tonight. I am really enjoying brewing! Need to get a stool so I am not just standing in my kitchen for 3 hours. My Single hop is tasting better when served ice cold. I'm going to try and go to the next Keystone Homebrewing meeting to have others taste it.

So I may have a problem. The smack packs didn't swell up. I pitched anyway. I am hoping that it starts bubbling in the next 24 hours.

They don't always swell. What was the expiration date on the pack you used and what strain was it?

Did you shake? A little CO2 dissolved from the yeast waking up (and eating from the nutrient pack?) won't swell as much until it comes out of solution.

Gitmoe, I could swear it was brand new but I took the trash out so I cannot check. Do they stamp the date it was made on it?

Success!

Yeah, Wyeast packs have the date of manufacture on them. They are best by 3 months after the date on the pack.
