Title: One step closer
Post by: weazletoe on November 15, 2010, 04:54:28 AM
  Came back to Idaho, and was able to get my two, five lb. CO2 tanks on the plane. I got my kegs all boxed up, and dad says as soon as he gets home, he's going to send them to me. Holly's uncle dropped off a few dozen bottles, and carboy, and some other odds and ends he picked up at a garage sale. And, I have plans to put a 6x8 addition on the mancave, for my brewery. So, soon as dad gets my kegs out to me (he's here in Idaho now) I'll fire up the burners in the backyard. Won't be long now. i'm actually on a "beer hunger strike" until I brew again. I'm not drinking any beer. The next beer to pass my lips will be homebrew.  8)
  (speaking of Weazletoe Sr., I took him to Jackson Hole, Wyoming yesterday, it was pretty sweet!)

"Beer hunger strike?'  Whiskey Tango Foxtrot?  You found religion or summut?

Drinking beer should be your pathway to get er done!  Greasing the wheels and all like that...

Great photo of you and WT Sr.  - btw

But a question:
The picture time stamp shows it to be the weekend, and you're wearing pants!  Wots up widdat?!

Well, I guess a beer strike is one way to motivate you to get all of your stuff together a get brewing again :)

It's hard to imagine going to Jackson Hole and not stopping at Snake River.  Dang "beer hunger strike!"

This is good news Weaz!

I'll be staying tuned to raise a pint for you...hopefully sooner than later.

Good Luck!  8)

Glad to hear the brewery will be operational soon.  No beer, huh?... I bet your bourbon consumption has gone up though  ;)

I was only wearing pants because my dangling parcible does not like to be on film. I'll keep everyone posted. I think Friday is going to be the big event. When it does happen, i'm going to have a few buddies over and broadcast it over my cell phone, on Bambuser. Not that anyone would really care to see me brew, but I'm not so sure live brewing has ever been streamed over the internet before. I could be breaking new ground here, men.  ;D
