A Beer and a Dog

"Why should I blog about brewing?", I asked. "Nothing like a beer and a dog...", So Sayeth Virtual Wayne.

I got to work today, and you know what?

These people take off Good Friday.  Imagine that!  Oh well, at least the trip wasn’t wasted…

Because: On the way home I stopped at Thelma’s Chicken & Waffles down on the market, across from the #1 Fire Station, if you’re wonderin’.  I ordered a Country Ham Biscuit and this is what it looks like":

How exactly do you spell Awe-some-o-licious?  Whoa!    I had to capture the moment with my cell camera (I should look into cleaning the lens one day…) and it didn’t do this sandwich justice.  One of these and a steamin’ cup of coffee makes for a good start to any growing boy or girl’s day!

And now, I have a day to concentrate on my web site.  See you in the ether~!

Ah, but I bottled my Märzen instead~!

And it tastes Freakin’ AWESOME!  And that isn’t just because I brewed it; no, it tastes awesome because I did a long-assed time consuming Triple Decoction and it was worth every second of it.  Oh, it there was ever a time that I looked forward to September/Oktöber it’s this year!  It’s SO good…. It’s so good that I’d be ashamed to enter it into home brewing contests because it would be cheating.  The maltiness it maddening!  FG was 1.008 and at 5.5% ABV, it is still sweet malty tasting, no, not cloyingly sweet, no I didn't’ use an elephant full of priming sugar, it is… just so.  I’m liable to start cracking those bad boys open before they are carbonated. Sorry for tootin’ me own horn, but it is a high point in my brewing career.  Hobby.  I GOTTA make more of this.

And I’m going to decoct more often as well.  Ahhh.  Pure molybdenum!  (A little joke between me and my ole pal Charlie Dell...)

Web site is coming along… still a lot to do…

At least it looks like I’m doing something….


I made some custom buttons and changed the background on the banner to reflect what the finish of the products are going to look like… there is a problem with the .gif file, but it will be ok for now.  Maybe I can include a paint kit for your computer for scratches like they USED to do with automobiles back in the mythical time only referred to now as: ‘The Day’.

I got up at 4:00 and put a pot of coffee on the stove (yep… coffee maker finally gave up the ghost) and fed the WonderDog personnel, then after the coffee was to a point that I wanted to drink it I came down to the Future Site of the Man Cave, which I should start calling Corporate Headquarters, I suppose.  The coffee was boiling hot, but you know how it is with coffee: you just gotta pour some onto the soft inner tissues of the mouth.  It’s about drinking temperature now, as cometh from the coffee maker.  I made some .gifs for my banner and buttons (not as nice looking as the ones that Virtual Wayne made for his site, however…  I have a ways to go to even come close to the expertise of the WaynarWare team.  But as I said, they’ll do for now.

Still haven’t heard from my vendors, so I’ll stop by one of them this AM before work.  And on that note, I should go cleanse the bod and get ready.  Adidas!

Should have brewed today, but worked on my website instead… And then:

… went to the home brew club meeting… A good time was had by all.  The club is growing!  Woo-hoo!  Gonna drink me the last if the beer I brought back in front of the toob.  See you later dudes & dude-ettes!
