Holy crap, I brewed ~20bbl of beer, and only ~10bbl will be ready to serve next week! I'm irritated at hops/malt/other supply right now!

my hops did poorly this year, as did the garden, and I have no firewood and I am exhausted, nearly 10 months of 70 hour work weeks. I barely have had time to sleep. work is 80 miles away and the 10 to 12 hour work days turn into 14 to 16 hour days. I have lost 32 pounds due to the stress and work load i have only brewed 2 brews all summer... only good thing is I have been too tired to drink so my pipeline is still good.

Harvested the hops recently just over 1lb still fresh from four plants. Mixed them all up and going to brew a fresh hop pale ale today if I can get up the energy.... its a Tribal Holiday so the tribal government is closed which means that 56000 sq ft building that has been the pain in my arse for nearly 10 months is closed and locked up. Being the owner rep/project manager and the IT Director all at once has not been fun.... but I got 70 employees moved in 3 days, the building was finished a month early and the security system is set and functioning the network and communications are up. Things are finally slowing down and I am actually going to get to brew today.!!!

Well, the city recently repaved our street and the one to the west. They also replaced some sidewalk squares, and replaced the gas main on the cross street. That means all of the windows are covered in a layer of construction dust, so they all need to be cleaned.

Other than that, it's the usual take down the dead tomato vines, store the towers, empty out the flower barrels, put the patio furniture away (*sob*...) and service the snowblower.

One thing I decided I'm NOT doing is putting the grill away. SWMBO got a really nice, heavy duty cover for it, so that thing is staying out and I'll grill all winter long.

Would be nice, but I know I get two weeks off paid... without using vacation time as we shutdown last two weeks of the year. So I will be off work from Dec 21 through Jan 5th.... pretty nice Christmas gift.

Also the benefits are exceptional at the Tribal Government, and they pay the entire premium, so that is worth a lot to me. Actually that has saved my wife's eye sight as there was no way we could have paid for the treatment she gets. So I may complain a little, but it is worth it.... every hour of it and all the stress... my wife still has her eye sight and is doing a lot better, heart condition is under control and her blood pressure is as well, and she is back to quilting... a great thing to see... so a happy wife means a happy George!

Finally getting the last of our berries picked. Termination dust is moving down the Chugach Mountains. Snow blower is ready and snow shovels are staged. Broke out the winter wear and layed in some more lump charcoal for winter grilling.
