A New Era in Brewing

School's out, for the witner break, at least. Now I have nothing to do. When not working, and between episodes of Arrested Developement, I've been thinking about the Christmas present I'm going to buy for myself: A 5 gallon soda keg! With all the trimmings, of course. No more tedious bottling of beers. No more tedious sanitation of each individual bottle. No sir, I will be kegging from now on, except for bottling a few beers from each batch, for aging purposes. Someday, if I'm feeling ambitious enough and the wallet allows, I may try aging beer in oak barrels. Although expensive, it seems like it would be a really interesting, and hopefully rewarding, experience.

On a somewhat irrelevant side note, I'm thinking about celebrating Hanukkah this year. Seems like it would be fun, but I've got no idea where to start. And I want to try not to offend anybody or blaspheme anything. I do enough of that already.

I am one of the greatest blasphemers on the planet! I also brew quality ales. Take heed in the sentiments below. Skylord is watching!

Proverbs 20:1 (KJV):
Ale is a mocker, strong drink is raging: and whosoever is deceived thereby is not wise.

Proverbs 23:31 - God instructs not to look at intoxicating drinks

Isaiah 19:14 - Drunken men stagger in their vomit.

Isaiah 24:9 - Drinkers cannot escape the consequences when God judges.

Isaiah 28:3 - Proud drunkards shall be trodden down.

Habakkuk 2:5 - A man is betrayed by real ale.
