Well next Friday, I'm going under the knife for right hand Carpal Tunnel surgery, as well as right thumb trigger release (left hand was done two years ago). I will be out on disability for a month.

I made sure I had all my beer tasks done before then. I just kegged my Helles Lager and my Scottish 70/ this week, I now have 10 gallons of home brew to hold me over for the next month! I feel lost not having any more brews in the works for the next month, what will I do?

Study up for the BJCP test. Takes lots of research, or so I'm told.
Remember one unassailable statistic, as explained by the late, great George Carlin: "Just think of how stupid the average person is, and then realize half of them are even stupider!"
