Catching up...

...the blog, that is.



I won't bore you with the details of the past twelve days; it's the same old clean-fill-deliver routine. I did filter and tap the Moll Dubh Irish Ale last week after the 1916 Irish Stout ran out.



Paris brewed her famous Princess of Darkness Porter, with Tom's help.



The Princess stirs her mash...

...as does Minion Tom.

...as does Minion Tom.



Uncle Ivan's Dunkelweizen ran out last week, so the Princess will take over that tap early next week.



Our wholesaler in Grand Island returned a keg of Tin Lizzie Hefeweizen that had developed a leak. It's leaking in a most peculiar place, and I'm not sure whether it can be repaired.

I've filled a new keg for them, and I'll deliver it this afternoon. (Maybe I'll stop by the Chicken Coop for some Thunderhead beers on the way home.)



In the meantime, I'm cleaning 32,768 half-barrels. I'll clean the remaining 46,080 five-gallon kegs on Wednesday.



Tomorrow: brew seven barrels of Tin Lizzie Hefeweizen, and give a tour. There are also tour groups coming through on Wednesday and Thursday.

That keg looks like it would make a good mash tun for a pilot system...

You had one once, but then I moved away. You need to do a better job of keeping your minions when you've got 'em.

This is why I haven't been to the dentist since 1984.

riiiight . . . like i could even begin to compete with Paris (the girl) and Hawaii (the paradise)

but now that i have been warned i will try my best to appreciate the next minion that may innocently stumble by.
-just hope i recognize them when they do . . .

and for the record -- dentists are satans spawn. (but don't tell dr mai that-she's actually pretty cool)
