Many things for brewing arrived today. 3.5lbs of hops; 1lb each of Citra Lupomax, Sabro Lupomax, and Mittelfruh, and .5lb of Hallertau Blanc. Also got the new 12" bazooka screen for the BK, so commando hopping is possible (unless huge hop additions late, then will use a bag), and a set of skinny brushes for cleaning hoses and the sight glass on the keggle. Completely set for inaugural brew on finally finished (after 3 years, omg) brewstand tomorrow. I'm like a little kid on Christmas Eve; I know I need to sleep for Santa Ninkasi to arrive, but I'm too excited to! Perhaps a few pints of the really yummy Sabro/Citra IPA I have on tap will help that....

10 plastic irrigation sprinkler heads I ordered from Amazon over a month ago. I didn't realize they were shipping from China! 🙃 (seriously) They don't look very sturdy but they work well. And the frame is black plastic so maybe UV from the sun won't eat them up.

Totally and completely forgot that YVH always sends a new sticker with hop orders! Had to dig the Fedex bag out of the trash to retrieve it. Either I brew too much or just have way too many hops on hand (yah I have a whole chest freezer dedicated to hops, doesn't everybody?) but I just counted my total different YVH stickers and I have THIRTEEN. I need to order more hops to raise that because, well, thirteen might be unlucky.

Thanks for the heads up… I’ve never ordered from them before and didn’t know they did that. Had to dig my shipping pouch out of the trash also to find my sticker. Might put it on one of my kegs. I’m also impressed by how fast I received my order. I placed the order Wednesday night and the hops were on my doorstep by 5:00 PM Friday afternoon. They went from Washington to Tennessee and here to Colorado in less than 2 days. I also got a 10% discount for being a first responder.

Yes, they are superfast! I also placed my order on Wednesday, and got it Friday; those few times there have been shipping delays make me laugh however since I could drive there in less than 4 hours!

Where did you find the kegs?
I found them here. I had a bit of trouble with the checkout procedure on the website and couldn't complete the payment process using my credit card. I had to use the "contact us" email because the phone number didn't work either. I was able to finally complete the transaction through email back and forth with the owner. Not the smoothest business deal for me, but it worked in the end.

Wow, she's a total keeper.
Yeah, she's alright. Thankfully she's super into my brewing/fermenting hobbies even though she doesn't drink and really encourages me to actually spend money/time on it. It helps when her hobbies are waaaaay more expensive than mine!
