In actual brewing news, I received word from Pops last night that he had finally kicked the keg of RyePA. I was very pleased to hear that it had been thoroughly enjoyed in my absence. Furthermore, the Hot Chocolate Stout has been moved into the garage for about two months of cellaring...very exciting. Every time I think about tasting that beer, it makes me very happy. As I have said previously, it will be a wonderful welcome home present to myself, and a great way to start celebrating the holidays. Good stuff happening with the stuff back home, now if I could only get some brewing going down here in Nashville. Soon, I say. Soon.
