I am just past the halfway point and have gotten a couple things taken care of in this month without a brew day. Probably one of the biggest was the new faucets and shanks. I think it will end up being sometime in the coming week that I will do the work to get them installed into the kegerator (well after I do some cleaning work on them).
The banjo burner that went a little jeinky on me the last time I went to brew is now soaking. I will be doing some cleaning work on it tomorrow and then I will test it to see if its a lost cause. Yesterday I did the transfer for the sour starter. That was an event. I ended up probably losing about a couple beers worth in the transfer mishaps.
During this next week I will be working on another build out project as well. I currently plan to build my first wine rack. I know it doesn’t sound fancy or glamorous but I do have quite a bit inch thick particle board. This should work nicely as the main body. I did some measuring earlier today and I think I should be able to set it up so that it can hold 2 cases of wine bottles (as long as they have the right shape for it). This will be really nice in the long run as I make more meads. Considering two cases is pretty much an entire 5 gallon batch, I will be able to house an entire batch of mead in each unit.
I think this might be all I need to record for now so it may just be time for a pint…
