Brewing a Guinness clone at Dean's

Today was brewing day at Dean's. Sean brought his new brewing kettle (converted keg) and Conical Fermenter to brew a Guinness clone. Go over to Sparks Nevada Home Brew's blog to see the daily images from this session. I hope we get a good brew from this. I tasted the malt extract first and it was sweet and malty and I then tasted the cooked wort and it was sweetly bad. Time for the yeast to do their job and convert those sugars to alcohol. I'll give you an update in a couple of weeks. -yo

gumby says goodby to Art Clokey


gumby says goodby to Art Clokey, originally uploaded by yodamon.

At my wife's dog store there is this bucket of Gumby action figures, at least I think they are action figures (?). I had just heard that morning that Art Clokey (Creater of Gumby) had passed away and I wanted to take a photo that would show Gumby saying goodby. This is before some sweet dog gets one of these as a gift and tears it's arms off. I received 83 views in a New York minute. Nice.
