Default Carpal Tunnel Surgery

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?

Indecision is the key to flexibility

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!"
