Keggerator of 6 years has gone to the big brew pub in the sky.

by Ruben on 03-26-2013 at 02:39 AM
I got the fridge on CL for $20. An awesome little fridge. I was able to shoehorn 4 kegs in there and it took me several years to get all the gear to actually put 4 taps on the door. The drip tray was less than the fridge (not including the mounting hardware) and about a month ago it stopped cycling altogether. No compressor motor or anything. Just the repetitive click of a micro switch trying to get things going. I keep an eye on CL for a replacement and my suck it up and switch to a chest freezer

I gave the brewery a "cats paw"

by Ruben on 11-03-2012 at 12:53 AM
It's a phrase my mom used to use. It meant clean up. I suppose it come from the little dust free prints you would find
if a cat decided to climb where it is not welcome and a duster had not been to in a while.

I pulled everything out, and I mean everything. The broom has seen better days. Of course I am at a disadvantage with the dirt
road out front but, DAMN! Anyhow, the grain bins got their lids completely washed, the mill got 120 psi, the work space was

About Me

Three years underemployed and now this?

Well. Suffice it to say I am happy to report I got a promotion at work in October. But the reality is getting a promotion and
"getting back to work" not as satisfying as I thought it would be. Bottom line, it turns out it will be 3-4 months of catching up
that I have to do. I have a couple of outstanding loans that are almost gone.

What"s my point?!?!

Well. The biggest change is going from part time to full time. I lost a ton of "free

My musings.

A Little of Ruben's Homebrew history.

by Ruben on 08-19-2011 at 12:55 AM
I have been brewing for about 7 years now. It still amazes me, the obsession it becomes. I started with a Brown Ale.
I really had no idea what I was doing or why. I mean, there was no long endured desire to brew. Carlos just
happened to know someone who did and he dragged me along to see the process and learn. I ended up about 2-4
weeks behind him. I suddenly wanted to brew and wanted to drink my own beer.

Here I am now. I have a dedicated brewery, a passion

About Me

At work

by Ruben on 08-18-2011 at 07:07 PM
Checking out the new joint. I am happy to report that work is going well enough for me
to sit and BS on the interwebs a bit. I saw a DC3 plane parked on the A concourse. I
couldn't make out an airline name but it was cool to see such an old plane at the airport.

I want a beer.

Back to work.
