How to tell when a homebrewer’s wife is on vacation

Well, I’ve been busy while my wife is gone to visit family. Racked the fruit beer to secondary, stayed at work and built a 3-tier structure, which is convertable to a 1 or 2 tier, and, last night, painted the sucker…in my KITCHEN!

This thing is made from bedframes, most of which I got from people on local freecycle.org groups. If you don’t know freecycle, and you’re trying to do things on “the cheap” (I have a total of $57 in this structure, which includes 2 turkey burners, the paint, a dropcloth, and a wire brush!) you need to check this site out!

It’s alive… and growing!

The fruit in the beer has started the fermenting going again. The cranberry/blueberry has pushed fruit out of the jug twice already! If you look closely at the jog on theleft you can see fruit on the left outside of the jug.It looks like the initial 4%abv is going to get seriously booted up in this one

Added fruit!Well, my first attempt at a fruit beer is in the jugs! One has raspberries added to an american wheat, the other has equal amounts of cranberries and blueberries… only problem is that at this point I forget which is which and didn’t label them! Guess I’ll find out later this week.
