Welcome to the homeBBBrew board!
Like the BBB, the homeBBBrew board is not a club, just a place to talk about making beer. Is there a swap you would like to see happen? If we can find a few others who have something similar then lets do it!

NO SPECIFIC REASON FOR THIS LINK...
I just really like the work levifunk is doing!

Back on the horse
Thought I'd check in. I brewed what may have been my first batch of 2009 yesterday. The arm was fine, no dumb accidents from excessive weakness like last fall (I lost 30% of my wort). Anyway, looks official, I'm once again a brewer. Made a fresh hop ale. That is to say it was made from homegrown Cascade dried and in the freezer for only one week.

Welcome back, Steve.

I can commiserate, busting up my ankle around the same time as you last year (December 1). I did get two ambient ferments in late Spring, but only with the generous assistance of folks to do the lifting.

The first solo brew session felt really good, though -- congratulations.

Sounds like a great not so ordinary beer to get back on the horse with.

did you go big gravity or session sized OG? Aeration method?

A 1.055 IPA, I prefer Clausinii non-aerated.

Re: Back on the horse
Hey, maybe we could start an "Personal Injuries" thread! I just had an epidural cortizone injection for a herniated disc in my lower back.

It sucked for a week or so, but it has helped with my sciatic pain, and I'm back to brewing.

Welcome back Steve!

Re: Back on the horse
I got that a couple years ago, I could not believe siatica could hurt so much. I lost feeling in my right leg below the knee, classic herniated disc symptom. I ended up having a proceedure done called MUA (manipulation under anethesia), basically a form of chirpratic on steroids. Happens in a surgury center, the things they do to you wouldn't get passed the Geneva convention if you wern't on a cocktail.

No follow up MRI, but the long term results strongly indicate they actually managed to make the herniation recess back into the vertibre. I think that happened over 18 months following the last of the 3 sessions. I went that route cause I really could not give the nod to a needle in my spine!!

2008 batch #2 went off yesterday. A slightly higher gravity copper ale with some amber syrup and corriander and wide hop variety. Weighed in at 1.064, the clausinii was pushing foam out the top into a blow off bucket after 2 hours.

Beer #1 went from 1.054 to 1.012 in 6 days.

Next week a clausinii barley wine to be served in 2010.
