Too Many Beer Bottles
BeerBottlesThe collection of empty beer bottles suggested that it was time to fire up the brewery.
Today's batch follows the same recipe that I used for the last batch.

7 lbs Pale Malt Extract
2 lbs. Ground Weyermann's Carafoam Crystal Malt
5.5 - 6.0 Gallons of Water
1.5 ounces of Challenger Hops (10.1%) Boiling
1.0 ounce of Fuggles Plugs Hops (4.0%) Finishing
Wyeast 1007 German Ale Yeast

Specific Gravity: 1.053

July 28 update - Last weekend I racked the wort to a fresh carboy. Today the Specific Gravity read 1.017, which suggests that it is not quite ready to bottle. I racked the wort again today, as I fired up the brewery and I needed to steal the yeast. I just realized that I failed to add any hops during the fermentation....

Aug 5 update - Specific Gravity 1.015 - Going in the bottle. 5%.

Ok... You do a fine job keeping track of meaningless exercise metrics. How about doing something important like keeping track of your alcohol intake. I'd like to see something like:
July Booze Consumption:
Beer: 12 Gallons
Wine: whatever my wife made me drink
Liquor: 40 oz (its just a coincidence)
Margaritas (yes this is different from liquor): 14 pitchers.

Excellent Idea.
