    May as well just start a new thread since the old one appears to be a victim of an alien abduction.

    Doing up a sour. It's a nice 2 day process but is going well. Thinking it will be 1 keg of Rhubarb, and 1 keg of Raspberry.

    Had a small CO2 leak and traced it to a manifold. Couldn't find it with leak test soap or star san. So I dunked it in a bucket of water. Tiny bubble every once in a while coming from the stop/check valve. Took it apart and there's no seal except for some Loctite on a not very good metal to metal seal. Luckily I had a spare.

    Washing bottles, prepping for a 1 gallon brewday tomorrow, and knocking together another primitive cider batch. I also had a productive day in the garden, which always feels great :D

    I was losing 20lb tanks about 4x faster than I should for a while. I ended up doing the whole dunk thing too. Turned out it was right at the regulator where I just glossed over.

    Thanks Bob for reviving what was one of my favorite threads. Today, I thought about homebrew.

    Same @Herm_brews. Tomorrow I’ll clean a keg and rack an Irish Stout. For to finish the last pint in the first.

    Oh, that’s right. I did check on the progress of our cider batch, and it’s still ticking along.

    I just put a bottle of cider with tamarind in the fridge. I'll drink it tomorrow or the day after.
    And I have just seen that my potassium benzoate apple juice has finished fermenting. It is now clear....

    Just received another two hop plants to add to the two I already have.
    I now have Pheonix, Chinook, Cascade and Fuggles. I hope they all survive my non green fingers...

    Just kegged the Irish Stout. Probably the 4th or 5th time I’ve brewed the same recipe. This is the first time since I’ve treated my water. I did use notty instead of s04. One of the best tasting beers I’ve made, pre carb of course. It will be ready to roll in a week or so. If any typos I “ had”to drink about 40 ounces of Wagner’s tonight . So....

    Finalizing my recipe for today. Another best bitter. Was going a Hobgoblin style ale but changed my mind. 88% MO, 8% Medium Crystal, 4% victory. 28 ibu of EKG at first wort and 8 ibu of Fuggles at 15 minutes. Using Pub Slurry

    @Sunfire96 Feel better soon, it's worth it in the long run. Most of my friend's anecdotal reports indicate about 24-30 hours of recovery time.
    Fluids! Non-alcoholic though.

    That was me last weekend. Got my shot early Friday and felt like fecal matter until Sunday’s coffee.
