    So after a 1 1/2 month hiatus I will be back to swinging on Sunday. Wifey has been studying for the GMAT and her test is Sat. On weekends I have been resposable for...well...everything. Kids, laundry, food, making beer, you know.... everything.
    That means Sunday is my day. It is also the first day of the Canadian license year. I will likely fish either the Vedder or another river a good bit further away. I'll be able to fish into May provided the snowmelt is light enough although May is traditionally the time to bust out the gear rods and pound the Lings.
    On Saturday I'm brewing a Pils with a buddy. I have the fridge to lager and we got yeast from a local brewery with a kick ass Pils. That should be ready for kings in the salt. Anyhow, I'm pretty f'ing jazzed.

    Go Red Sox,

    Mmm... I love me a good pils. I have a keg of maibock I've been layering for 10 months.

    My fridge goes as high as 42-43. The yeast like to be at 48-52. Do you think the warmth they create while eating will get them to their happy range?

    I typically run around 45 ambient temp for my lagers. They're not as active as ale yeasts, so there isn't quite as much warmth generated.

    Not sure what the hell you snobs are talking about but I like my pounders at around 35-50 ambient bottom of the raft water temp this time of year...

    The beer I drink comes in a can that changes color when the beer is at optimum temp for consumption. Thus freeing up my time for more important things

    What your drinking isn't beer. It's an alcoholic, grain (rice/corn) based beverage, but it's not beer. Apples and oranges.

    Truly sorry too hear that.

    As far as more important things I can only think of sex, fishing and Red Sox baseball, all of which are complimented perfectly by..............BEER.

    I'm getting jumpy thinking of all the relaxing I'll be doing.

    I don't know what to think it says beer on the box, But then again I like Tenkara fishing so my judgement is twisted or so I'm told

    It has to be that cold to be drinkable because you need numb taste buds.

    I see your point, and I'm in total agreement with you that one needs to have lots of alcohol on hand if your going to be forced to watch the Red Sox play baseball

    Hater in the house.
    Beer is not required but it does compliment quite well.
