Ending my long weekend with a chore heavy Sunday, including bottling. That chore went quicker when I realized my brewing sink and fittings let me configure this little bottle washing tower. TC, like Lego for brewers. So happy I upgraded my little pilot brewery earlier this year.
Not too many chores this weekend, enough for a night on the deck (especially the baking.) Finished Close Encounters before watching most of SNL.
Chores are done and enjoying this as a reward. Today’s list included kegging a special beer, grilling veggies for meals this week, laundry, paperwork, and donating to the Biden-Harris campaign plus several key Senate races.
Today’s chores included a long walk, a trip to the dump, baking more sandwich loaves for the week, making a batch of hummus, and setting up this standing desk converter.
I was going to bottle beer today. I think I am going to do so later this coming week. After all, my list of completed chores this weekend includes making hummus, crackers, hot sauce, grilled eggplant, sandwich bread, and bean based “sausage” patties and starting a ferment of watermelon rinds.
That feeling when your to do list grows faster than you can complete items on it. Thankfully, in my experience, it will slow down as the day progresses. And the act of simply capturing things for my last alleviates most of my anxiety of remembering and getting everything done on any given day.
Winding down the first official day of my sabbatical with a bit of my own lager. A good day, on reflection, with some plans made for the remainder of this first week.
All done. It is a bit of work, start to finish–clean the draft line, clean then sanitize and purge the keg, and afterward cleaning the fermenter and all the fittings. Worth it, every single time.
Spent some time on another section of the business plan, a good start and more research required. Finishing last little bit of lectures for brewing course while doing last chore of the weekend, laundry.
Next chore for the day, last in the home brewery for this weekend: breaking down and vacuum packing 1oz bags of hops.
