Mash Tun

Here is a pic of my mash tun with manifold.  I bought this cooler on amazon and if I had seen it in person I probably would not have picked it for mashing.  The wheels take up too much space and I had to drill out a hole to attach my spigot.  I was trying to save a few bucks but now I wish I just went with the $60 igloo soccer mom cooler.  Oh well.  I think this will do for a while until I make it big time and can afford a $60 cooler.  Its nice to dream...

Off Topic Blues

This post doesn't have much to do with brewing or basements.  It is more a way for me to release some of the pain I feel after watching my beloved Ravens lose in heart-breaking fashion to a horribly over-hyped Patriots team.  The only satisfaction I can take from this game is the fact that Flacco outplayed Brady.  After all of the crappo he has taken over the past week, I was very happo to see him perform well.  All of the haters saying we need a new QB can suck his hairy handlebars.  I would take Joe Cool over a guy that wears UGG's any day of the week.  Anywho, he lead the team on a game winning drive that was ruined by a Lee Evans TD drop and a missed chip shot field goal.  I will leave it at that.  I am looking forward to next year and I will unfortunately be rooting for the Giants in the Super Bowl.

GFY buddy.

Oh btw, this is how I really felt.
