Nuttin' to do but keg

Here is a picture of the mini kegs. As soon as I shake this cold I'm going to keg the brown ale.

How now brown Ale?

The Brown was racked over to the secondary on the 19th. It seems to have a sweeter more creamy taste and smell. On a serious note, my ready supply is down to a couple of six packs and fading fast!

Brown revisited

I brewed Saturday. The carbouy is percolating right now with the Brown Ale I received for Christmas. Pictures will follow when I can locate the digi camera. Can't wait to try out the mini kegs I got for Christmas too.

No brews is bad news

Hey, I think my homebrew might be some good stuff. I had the family over for Christmas dinner, and broke out the brew. I wasn't sure how it would go over because there are a lot of people in this world that just enjoy the American store bought beer and can't hack an imported or a homebrew. To my surprise, everyone liked it. I would put it about 60/40 in favor of the Red Ale over the Brown Ale. I too like the Red over the Brown. Dunno why, it just seems a little fuller and creamier. Of course I wouldn't turn down the Brown either, it seems a little better with a meal than the Red.
I saw a message from Tom on the messageboard, and it turns out he was real close to going to Phuket, Thailand for a Christmas trip but decided not to go. (insert collective sigh of relief)
What's the chat abbreviation for "thank fucking God he didn't go"?
I heard an ad on the radio for one of those courses to train you to improve you memory... I can't remember the name of it or their phone number. Probably don't need it anyway.
