damnit, hurt my foot wednesday playing indoor soccer, went to an orthopedic specialist thursday, linsfranc fracture (read: very bad) tore a bunch of ligaments that hold my foot together, and had surgery today. Will be in a non-weight bearing cast for 3 months at least and crutches...so I will not be taking part in any beer-related activities other than drinking for 3 months or so. Have about 25 gallons in carboys that is just gonna have to wait, I'll probably be out of beer by the time I heal.

I feel your pain, I'm sorta in the same situation. I can brew just cant drink. You could always hire some neighborhood kid to do the heavy lifting and pay him in beer Anyways get well soon.

Surely we as the HBT community could come help with lifting & racking and all that stuff.

Colorado brewers, sound off to help a brewer out. Friends don't let friends lapse back to BMC.

Yup, I could pitch in. I'd be happy to meet some local brewers too.

I was going to mention the Yankess thing, but held my tounge.

There are more brewers from Colorado. Sound off if you got a pair, or like beer. Help this guy out. I assume there is some PM'ing going on behind the scenes....

ASU's running back Ryan"the Train" Torain(now with the broncos) had the same injury. He was out for a while but still got drafted, so maybe so will your beer. If this doesn't make sense, Im druck.
