Cars and Beer

Therese was in a car wreck today. Luckily nobody was hurt. The car suffered some damage though:

All of this reminds me that I need to keep drinking beer. By the way, I've been making progress on my Katrina Anniversary ESB. Here is the wort from last week:

Here are the ingredients I used:
3 lb liquid amber malt
3 lb Mutons Light dried malt extract
.5 lbs Crystal 80, .25 CaraPils, .25 lbs CaraRed, .1 lbs Chocolate (steeped 20 minutes)
Kent Goldings Hops 1 0z 4.5% average alpha (last 15 minutes)
Nugget Hops 1 Oz AA 13.7% Full boil 60 minutes
Nottingham Brewing Yeast

Today I transferred it from the primary fermentation glass carboy to the secondary one.

In one week it will be ready for bottling.

Glad Therese is okay. Will your schedule allow an Oct. 4, bi-pedaling-to-the-Dome unbottling?

Chef, I would gladly wait for an unveiling of the brew until October 4th. It's magic, I can tell already, like a mustache on a fleur de lis, this beer is magic. Magic I tells you.
Who Dat and all,

Oh, NO! Glad Therese is okay.

And, for a moment, I thought you were going to talk about a cure for car wrecks being a bath in beer or some such thing....
