Also, hi, hope y’all are well. Sorry I don’t have the social energy to post here much.

Hey, quick question: why the FUCK would you pay for a brewery shuttle tour with flights IF YOU DON’T LIKE BEER?!

And next person who jokes about only drinking coors light is getting fuckin decked.

We have wineries and cideries galore up here. There are so many other places for you to go enjoy yourself. Stay the fuck out of my brewery if you don’t like beer.

So I uh...was offered a head brewer position at the brewery tonight.

That’s pretty wild.

The brewery cat let me give her some very good skritches today.

Mulling some wine with a bunch of spices, some citrus, brown sugar... should be good!

I unstacked a pallet of grain sacks last night and discovered a lil present.

Apparently the supply company does this for every pallet they make. Sure never got that working at the grocery store.

I’m at the brewery by myself washing kegs....spooky

Oh also be real fuckin careful if you’re adding habanero extract to...anything. At all, ever.

Tonight I was cleaning kegs on my right and fillings kegs on my left.

The great circle of beer.

Filling and fruiting kegs today! Like lots of things in brewing, it’s mostly waiting.

Empty kegs is heavy, but full kegs is fuckin’ HEAVY.

Two lessons from today:

1. Kegs is heavy.

2. Scrubbing out a 200 gal (750 L) boil kettle is tricky.

I took a growler home with me for a pumpkin carving party so I had 32oz/.9L off pumpkin spice latte porter birthday cake for dinner.

The Mastodon instance for those who love beer. I hadn't seen any instances that were specific to beer, so I thought I'd create one. You can post reviews of beers you've tried, recommendations for others, discuss home brewing, share events, etc. Anyone is welcome, whether you're new to the world of beer or a long-time connoisseur. This is not a free speech space.
