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.
