LMAO!!!

   I actually had all the grain since before I left Ohio. It's Holly's fav, she had askem me to make before we moved, and I just never got to it. Plus, it'sll be a good ice breaker for all the beer wussies here. I mean, the dude where I brew is hardcore Bud Lite Lime.  ::)
  I leave for ohio again Tuesday for two weeks. But no worries, when I get home, it's 12 gal of IPA, and a good porter.

Dude, you are not only forgiven, you're reloading the gun with beer bullets.  Good man.

Can you beat this for brewing scenery while brewing?

I can sure try. I do my home brewing on the front deck:

Well the problem is that the aspen are all brown in that one. You'll have to come down for a brew session in September and decide then. ;D

As long as we're posting kilt pics, here's one from a few weeks ago when I did my CAP. No pants! But I am wearing my awesome Goose Island Brewpub "Beer Fed Pork" shirt. I always wear that when I brew.

Somewhere I have a picture of me with blublockers and my vintage '85 knit bears sweater. I don't have a sweater vest unfortunately, so it's not 100% accurate.

Glad you're back in the saddle Weaz.  Beautiful scenery, and wise move to placate the little woman first thing.

You know what, if it doesn't kill the quality but it boosts the distribution range to Europe, I don't care. I had a feeling it was going this direction anyway.

I couldn't find bacon in any of these pictures.... Also, I don't have a kilt, can I still make beer or am I just wasting my time?

How big is that carboy?  If you've got 11.5 gals in there it looks somewhat deceiving.  I would have thought it would be bigger.

A kilt isn't required per se. As long as you aren't wearing pants the beer will turn out OK.

That porch might be considered a terrain trap in Silverton!   :P

 Made a bacon bomb the night before brewing, so I was actually taking a hiatus from bacon that day. The fermentor is a 15.5 gallon demi-jon. I thought there would be plenty of head space in it. Woke up to one heck of a blow off this morning. Needless to say, Holly was not happy. As for the kilt, like already said before, you're beer will turn out fine as long as you are pantless.  ;D

Oh, now I see what I've been doing wrong.  :D

And, as long as we're bragging about great views when brewing. Here's mine:

Come summer, roles'll be reversed. 110F is not uncommon. Have had one month straight where the high exceeded 100F. This being California, the hills will be brown or on fire.
