As mentioned in my last post, I’m back from my trip!
I meant to do an inventory last weekend, as mentioned in my last post, but jet lag got the better of me. I had a ton of other stuff to catch up on as well so there was no beer related activity. Fortunately, Mikey and I got back into it with an easy kit IPA; I’ll be writing this up later. We also managed to taste a couple brews.
I did this inventory because I had a lot of home brew floating around the house, stored in different places. I also had stashed empty bottle in various places. It was good to pull everything out, get everything organised, and see what I had left.
What I found was:
- Empty: 39 bottles
- Gauss’ Law Hopped Cider: 6 bottles
- Dead Guy Dark Ale: 28 bottles
- Thomas Coopers Lager #1: 5 bottles
- Thomas Coopers Lager #2: 2 bottles
- Miners Stout: 5 bottles
- Malted Cider: 2 bottles
- Beagle Double IPA: 7 bottles
- Australian Pale Ale: 1 bottle
- Apple and Rhubarb Cider: 1 bottle
- And one bottle of Little Creatures Pale Ale that got mixed into my home brew collection
That’s 58 bottles of beers (including the Little Creatures) to work through!
I have a habit of avoiding drinking the last few beers of batch, so they get put into the back of a cupboard and forgotten about. Unfortunately I’m going to need about 60 bottles for the brew I did yesterday, So it looks like I have some work to do in order to get more bottles! Fortunately there is plenty to choose from…
Finally, let us all take a brief moment of silence for all the tasty home brew that was so good I drank it rather than saved it. It will be missed until I make it again.
Anyway, I’ll be posting up yesterday’s brew soon, and there are some reviews coming as well. Stay tuned.
