Nice. I'm going to brew a bunch of batches ...

I want to use up a ton of ingredients and transition from being my own LHBS to ordering-in batches of grist one by one ...

No need to house grain ...

Killer.

I'm going to be done working by mid-morning tomorrow, so early beer is a def possibility, along with preparing a bunch of ingredients for some batches over the long weekend! :cheers:

She wanted to go to Detweilers (Amish market across town) originally, but we changed up the plan as mentioned above, plus a trip to Trader Joe's ... which is a few blocks away, and we haven't been there for well over a year!

 

Should be a fun weekend of drinking and brewing, and maybe a little side of BBQ ... or more specifically, some grillin' and chillin' ...

 

Not feelin' the long cooks, still ...

 

Akorn Jr was dented and I'm waiting for replacement parts to come sometimes end of next week ....

Enjoy your downtime.

 

Asked Danielle what she would like to do one of the days of the weekend while I'm off work, and she wants to clean every cabinet -including the space above them - in the kitchen ... TOGETHER.

 

Maximum painfulness guaranteed. OH MY.


On the bright-side, I think I'll run a cleaning cycle on my Z tomorrow while weighing some out some recipes and preparing for some starters etc, and plan to brew like a fool all weekend long.

 

I'll check the vanilla cream ale later and if it's not delightful, dump it and free up a slot in the keezer ...

 

Hoping I can take a stab at using the QuickCarb on the one I brewed yesterday this weekend ... if it's done in time - which it SHOULD be ...

Time to hit a delicious Aslin while I put together my new smoker.

Helluva a few days for me.

Getting to old for this shit.

Out last night, tonight I have to go to a mass at my daughters school and tomorrow we have a salesman in the city from Chicago. Friday night after work Pixie will be at a dance performance and again on Sunday from 12-9.


Enjoy your downtime.

 

Ouch! Better squeeze the hell out of Saturday ...

In a rare event, a pile of work moved out ... instead of forward.

 

Emailed my boss that I was going to wrap up working until next week tonight, and take some time off between now and then ...

 

Didn't mention  that by next week I meant Tuesday ... at least not specifically, LOL ...
