Oh, the humanity!

This past weekend I brewed the Belgian Trippel and the Rye Pale Ale. The brew day went well...just loooong. I ended up going from 5am-6pm. Most of the time (of course) is cleaning. I had to disassemble 6 kegs and clean them all. In cleaning those kegs, I also dumped 10 gallons of beer down the road! The Country Livin' Stout and the Oaked Pops Ale traveled to far off places in the storm drain. The neighborhood smelled great for a little while! Always sad to dump beer, but it had to be done....nobody was going to drink this stuff, nobody. 

A couple of weeks ago, I also made some new chalkboard tap handles. Friends were confused about the labeling of the tap handles on the chalkboard front, so I tried to make it even more clear. I can now write the name of the beer right on the handle. I like them and the stain job came out great. Here are some recent pictures of the keezer, also including the taster trays that I made from oak barrel staves. This is where the magic happens!
