The Pub / I just realized this is my 18th year brewing.
« on: October 12, 2015, 07:31:29 PM »
My daughter turned 18 this past Sunday and it just hit me that I started brewing shortly after she was born.

It doesn't seem like 18 years have gone by (either for the hobby or the kids).  Both journeys have been a blast and I'm looking forward to the temps dropping and getting the brewing season started again.  It will be a busy Spring with a high school and a college graduation!

Thanks to you all for all your advice, knowledge and support over the years.


I was in a rush a couple of months back in my brewing schedule and decided a wheat beer that was in the primary was "done enough" because I needed the carboy.  I went ahead and kegged it.  You would think I'd have learned this lesson by now, but I am now serving a keg of foam.  At least until I can get the excess CO2 purged and actually pour some liquid.   ::)

The beer tastes good if use a spoon to drink it.  I thought everyone could use a chuckle.   ;D

Make sure to take a moment today to remember all those who gave the ultimate sacrifice to make and keep us free. 

Thank you to those in uniform today and all the men and women who served before you.  We owe you a debt that can never be repaid.

The French government is proposing a 120-160% tax on brewers.  Wine and Champagne would be exempted.

Okay not so tragic.  A Bud truck tipped on its side on I-380 today.

Driver is okay with some minor injuries.  Univ. of Iowa students saved from one load of Bud-Light.

The Pub / New ways to justify a keg fridge
« on: August 19, 2011, 07:07:04 PM »
Honey!  It's an emergency backup freezer!   :)

Yesterday we discovered one of the kids (assuming one of the kids) left the door of our 26cf upright freezer open a little bit.  By the time we found it $1000 of meat and veggies was half thawed.  I just got done pulling all the kegs and dropping the keg freezer back to 0 deg.  My son and I just moved half the beef to the chest freezer to make the big one cool faster.

At least the big freezer is starting to cool down again.


The Pub / May 21 - What are you planning ot do?
« on: May 20, 2011, 08:41:45 PM »
Somebody has to ask this question.

I'm pretty sure, one way or another, I'll be here come May 22nd.  I'll be cleaning my Mom's house before she moves to a retirement community in Omaha.  8^)

If the rapture actually happens... what will you be doing on Sunday?

I personally will be arming up and getting ready for some gun play.   ;D
