Thanks all !!!
Gail, your words are salve my friend !!! Commencing to laugh.....
Denny, a happy one to you sir!! We had an exceptional brew day in the single digit temps. Best time of year to brew IMHO. Fred, I brought home some of your brews after you left. Sorry pal. I'll make it up to you on the trip to HopCat this weekend. For all, one of the students in our class is now a head brewer at a brewery in Grand Rapids, Mi. Fred and I are visiting him this saturday to see how all is going and deliver some Roselaire yeast packets for a 'project'.
Dean, I sincerely hope your wife has no issues during this time. I can ampathise with you. If it can be done, have her checked every year. If I had followed the governments warning, then I could have waited til next year. It may have spread and been more than a stage 1 if we had waited.
