What?...this isn't normal?

"I can't believe I started a thread that has gone 32 pages. Seems like an achievement except the guy who started "I am an idiot" is up to 178."

Buying the grain mill is one step closer to buying bulk which will save money which will add money to the car repair budget. Pretzel logic I know but it works.

Undergoing a home remodel project and needed to cut a section of the subfloor when I realized my 11 gal cream ale batch was fermenting directly below so I did the cautious thing and moved all my brew stuff away and nicely covered everything with a tarp for added protection. Finished the demolition, beer was saved, turned around and realized that my kids toys were right there just a couple of feet away from where I was working and were covered in saw dust. Spent the next several hours cleaning up each toy.
