Harvesting yeast

The current batch of Tin Lizzie Hefeweizen went to the cellar today. Adam Daake of Platte Valley Brewing called yesterday and asked if I had any Hefeweizen yeast he could borrow, so I saved a five-gallon can for him along with the quarter-barrel I kept for myself.

A few root beer orders had come in, so I filled those.

I had to come home early because Refrigerator Repair Man was scheduled to show up between 1:00 and 5:00. Adam stopped by my house to pick up his yeast, and we split a bottle of Yuksom Yeti Special Export Lager. (Refrigerator Repair Man arrived at 4:45.)

Tomorrow: the Micro Brew Ha Ha event in Omaha.

Friday (and maybe Saturday): the 6th Annual Oktoberfest at the Crescent Moon and Huber Haus in Omaha.
