Are you planning on dry humping your Old Leghopper?

Sometimes I do, but I think his overall hours worked are similar or more to most of us, so I deal with it. Still, on days like today I could kick him in the codsack as I sit in my cube.

No need to be jealous. I work rotating shifts so I'm actually jealous of you guys who have weekends off. It is a crapshoot every month. In April I worked every single day of every weekend. Sucks with a family life.

I probably only work 30-35 hours a week, but changing from nights to days and back again--it sucks. I'd kill for a regular M-F shift.

I do enjoy chilling during the week when everyone else is at work though, so there are some advantages.



Well, Old Leghumper (the name will change) is all chilled and racked right onto the WLP005 ( I think I got htat wrong in another thread) slurry. Gravity was through the roof, 1.065. I even ended up with almost 6 gallons of wort too, so I can barely top this off. I plan on adding some water though, that is way too high for this beer.

I cannot believe I got 85%+ efficiency on this.

I'm in my office for 40+ hours a week, but I probably only work about 10 of them.

yeah, I'll bet I actually "work" 10 hours a week too. The rest is surfing brewing forums and jeep forums.

I actually like it when I have work because the time goes faster, but we are pretty slow for work right now.

I have a completely tedious job and I spend as much time as possible surfing the internet and streaming ESPN radio all day. I guess I actually work 25-30 hours per week which I guess means I am a workaholic compared to you bums!!!!

Forgot to mention 2 things about yesterday.

That grill/brew cart I bought? Best 80 bucks I've ever spent. I didn't realize how convenient it is to have a sink right near the brewing area. It came in really handy. Not to mention all the storage.

Next--I don't think I'm ever trading hops with anyone again, unless I know they are fresh. I traded some varieties with someone on another board, and I got screwed over. When I got them, I noticed they looked kind of yellow.
I planned to use some of them in Old Leghumper yesterday. I opened up the package and they smelled like cheese. Not kidding. I ended up substituting them with something else at the last minute. The whole lot (12 ounces) that we traded, are that same color. I'm pretty pissed.

Dude, how were the hops packaged? Had they allegedly been stored in the freezer? Maybe you can make a lambic

I've got all mine vac-sealed and frozen now, and so far they're holding up really well.
