The first actual brewery I ever visited, the place where I was first astonished to find a COFFEE porter, and the first time I specifically went out of my way to bring bottles home and add them to my collection were all at the very same place. Mill Street Brewery in Toronto. That was in 2005. Right now, the very minute that I’m writing this, I’m sitting at Mill Street Brewery, wearing the t-shirt I bought in 2005 and having a flight of beers. You can bet I’ll be writing a full post about my return home when I get more time. I just wanted to share the excitement right now!
That’s it! Every shelf in the office is full! From here I can either fill in the window with shelving (not sure how smart it is to put a bunch of glass bottles in a window when you live in a place that’s prone to tropical storms and/or hurricanes) or start putting shelving on the ceiling. I really want to go towards the ceiling. But see this post to get an idea of the challenges I face on that front.
I’m trying something new. Some of the container reviews seem like they might be better suited to video. I’m trying it out with a Mike Hess – Grazias. Let me know what you think. Should I stick to writing? Should I stay away from video until I get some better equipment? Should I figure out what the hack 15° Plato means? Do you know what the cause of the strange can crinkles might be? Talk to me people. I know you’re there, I can hear you breathing.
By the way, degrees of plato apparently refers to the percent of sugar in the wort.
