Default I haven't brewed recently because...

As a companion pice to the HBT Self Confessional, I give you the Brewers Excuse page.

MY FIL insisted over the course of not one, or two, but three days...
Your garbage disposer should be able to handle {insert large or fiberous food item here}

On the fourth day, one day after his departure, I am installing a new disposer.

It's a top of the line Insinkerator Excel... bill to FIL forthcoming.

I've had to play catch up because I was so confident that I'd have my AG setup all together that I stopped brewing extract and bought grains. One snag after another and I ran out of nice things to drink. I had to brew two five gallon batches last weekend and I'll brew another this coming weekend.

In my own defense, I have two batches that taste bitter and green when they should have been ready to drink so that set me behind too. One is at nine weeks and the other is at about seven or so.

Moving has placed a hold on operations for a while. Now that I'm resettled, I've just recently brewed again. In order to catch up, I've skipped the secondary on the first batch, and will brew the second batch this weekend.

My dog ate my brewery... And I don't even own a dog.

Was going to brew on the weekend but got shanghied into laying a patio for my parents.

Then it went from 36c and sunny to 9c and rainy and I felt lazy.

Will brew tomorrow I think.

I move in August, overseas, I have a stockpile of beer and another 5 gals still needing to be bottles (maybe this weekend?).

I have a 55lb of pils malt, 55lb of wheat malt and a ton of random 4 or 5lb bags of grain. Once I get to the states I'm gonna buy some kegs and its on... nonstop brewing for as long as I can foresee.

I've already made 55 gals this year (by the beginning of May)... so a break isn't a bad thing. I guess.

..Because all 6 kegs and two secondaries are full or almost full. I need to make friends with a few alcoholics.
