General Homebrew Discussion / Carboy Disaster
« on: February 16, 2014, 08:48:45 PM »
I had a really sweet double batch brew day lined up yesterday; a coffee stout and IPA.  It was my first double batch on my Brew Magic so I was pretty pumped.  The morning was enjoyable after I resolved a stuck mash.  After hitting all my numbers and successfully finishing out the coffee stout I began the IPA.  I love IPAs and I love coffee so I was particularly excited about this batch.  It was one of the smoothest brews I've ever done.  What a great day!  I had just cooled and transferred over 12 gallons of a gigantic beer into two 6.5 gal. carboys.  I moved one carboy into my fermentation cellar (my closet)  ;) and picked up the other one to put it in its home as well.  I walked closer to my closet ready to pitch the yeast and clean up.  As I bent over to set the carboy down, I clipped the side of the one already on the ground.  This shattered the bottom of the one I was holding, spilling 6.5 precious gallons all over my carpet.  The one I grazed shattered too.  Blood and wort EVERYWHERE.  Have you ever seen 13 gallons of wort on carpet?!  I wish I could un-see it!!!  I just finished shampooing the carpet for the 5th time and I think I have another couple times on the horizon tomorrow...  Don't worry... the coffee stout survived and is happily fermenting  8) 

What's your worst brewing mishap?

Going Pro / Logo Design

Hey guys!

I recently had a logo designed by Jared Jacob of Sunday Lounge.  He was mentioned in Tom Hennessy's book, "Brewery Operations Manual" and came highly recommended.  Attached is the work he did for my brewery in planning.  He is very easy to work with and is an amazing designer.  After working with him, I would also highly recommend him for a professional logo.  Let me know what you guys think!
