back to SHOW DIARIES
Today's show was a little less like a show and more like bottling beer. In fact, it was exactly like bottling beer.
This is because we spent the morning bottling beer. Funny how that works, eh?
You see, a couple of weeks ago Scott and I went to Fermentations on the Danforth where he and Brew Goddess Erica Graholm designed what is sure to be the greatest Dunkel Weitzen the world has ever seen.
I got to scoop the malt.
Two weeks later, it's ready for bottling. So we dragged our sorry asses out of our respective beds and eventually managed to converge on Fermentaions.
Being rather fussy about this sort of thing we supplied our own bottles, rather than use plastic ones. Plastic bottles are for losers.
So first we had to wash them. As per the below picture, one can see that this cleaning must be done... WITH GUSTO!
Erica then showed us how to use the capper...
You can tell she's been drinking because she's blurry.
Here's a closer look at the Bottlematron...
And here, we see Scworm moments before the tragic bottling accident that robbed him of the use of his right hand...
There goes half his sex life.
Evil Overlord Scott surveys his domain, which he rules with an iron fist...
...and a colostomy bag liver.
And finally... The Tasting!
Which isn't actually accurate, since we're bottle-conditioning this sucker. That's right. It's bottled, but we can't drink it yet.
At this very moment, it's sitting in my cellar taunting me. But I'll show it! It'll be sorry. I'll get the last laugh when I turn it into
Oh, yes. I will have my revenge.
