Happy Monday! Said no one ever. I do, however, have some good news and pretty beer pictures to brighten your day! Friday we got together on a rather cold night to keg our Red Rye IPA. It was a brisk 20 degrees and we had two kegs to fill. Now I know our friends up in the Great White North would consider 20 degrees shorts weather, but after a few hours outside in the cold, playing with water we were ready to call it a night! Ok, no more crying about the weather, let’s see some pictures!
The bubbles from the sanitizer froze in the bucket and all over the driveway.
Can you see a face in the frozen sanitizer bubbles?
Brian is a trooper and true bad ass! He was the one who dipped his arm into the sanitizer to retrieve the sanitized parts we needed. Rumor has it, his arm had to be amputated on Saturday.
Seth rinsing one of the kegs. Note the ice on the driveway from spillage.

Filtering the Red Rye IPA. It goes from one keg through both filters and into its new home.
The filtered IPA filling up the keg.
Two full kegs being carbonated, it’s a beautiful sight! It’ll be ready to bottle on Friday.
Even though it was incredibly cold, we toughed it out, with a whole bunch of whining (mostly by me, “I’m freezing, I can’t feel my toes” blah blah blah) but the end result was well worth it!
Until next time…
