It hasn't snowed here since Friday, but I'm still stuck indoors by the weather and all the snow on the ground.

I'm hyper, so this has been hard. I painted. Pretty much everything indoors that I could. I mean, painted. To the point where you can't touch anything in my huge house. I painted walls, woodwork, kitchen cabinets, entryway, doors, more walls, more doors, more rooms, etc. It started on about Tuesday, I think.

Spring better come, or I see a whole new laundry room and brewery with fresh paint.

I haven't brewed since last week but tomorrow I'm bottling 15 gallons of wine, and dryhopping my last beer.

My shoulder is killing me- apparently painting for 4 days straight from early in the morning until late at night does overuse some middle-aged muscles and joints!

It's supposed to snow tomorrow evening. Hooray.

Yooper- it sounds like y'all should have hung out in Texas just a bit longer.

I thought about brewing a Munich Dunkel today after lunch, but the weather was so nice that I went on a 27-mile bicycle ride with some folks in our local club. I'm sitting here looking at the sack 'o grains hoping that I get some time to do it this week.

Yesterday, I canned starter wort for the first time in a pressure canner. Now I have 10 quart jars that all sealed up nicely.

I watched hockey. Lots of it! Oh, and I cleaned out my mash tun that I forgot to clean out for, like, two weeks. I know, I know, but I hate cleaning that thing! Such a pain in the ass! Isn't there a hockey game on? I'm going to go watch another hockey game.

Inbetween heavy rains I did yard work and admired my hops plants. I also put up 25 quarts of spicy hot asparagus for the holiday season.

Well, all my windows are done except for 2 customs that haven't been ordered yet. I think I earned 2 brews next weekend!

As long as you're doing windows, I have a couple that need to be replaced.
