So I stopped at my home brew shop today... and ended up with a new BB 6 gal carboy, bottle rack, drill mounted stirrer, auto filler holder thingy, additives, ph kit, and a bunch of other nifty shiznit that I've already forgotten *DOH*... It's a good thing the boyfriend is off playing Army this weekend because I have time to blend it all in with my other stuff and destroy all the packaging evidence...

I'm crying laughing at this! You know the trick, combine pieces and make it look like they all belong together as a single purchase.

Ya know, he does owe me at least one carboy since he shattered two of mine when he was working on the basement! lol

The other stuff has already been tossed in with the other stuff ninja style :n! haha!

He doesn't usually look at my wine stuff until it's time to help me cork or drink it...

Hey thats funny I thought I wa the only one to do that. And guess what, the more carboys you get the easier it is to add more without being noticed. I thought you were holding off on buying that stuff till Saturday when you go up to Erie to shop. OR..are you shopping for more :).

The boyfriend has drill this weekend so I have 3 days to do nothing... so I went to Clarion to hang out with friends from college... and by TOTAL COINCIDENCE... there happens to be a brew shop there and I needed acid blend and campden tabs and yeast from a source I trust... ;)

I'm still going to Erie tomorrow to shop for the actual juice but I couldn't help myself today... I've got the bug! Plus that guy has great advice and a nice dog.

My wife did approve my purchase of a new Thermocapsuler recently from George but explaining how the price went from $175 to $280 was a tough sell. Thats the advantage of buying local and paying in cash with your hidden stash!

Ykies Dan, are those things really that expensive? I've seen those but never paid attention to the price, couldn't you just use a hair dryer or heat gun, or would it be to inconsistent?

I already have a truck and a boat... so he wouldn't be asking for those things (except maybe a newer truck or a pontoon boat)

We both like guns... so I guess it just depends on the woman ;)

A quote from George "they are quiet pricey and have been flying off the shelves lately". As wade tells it he puts it right up there with a floor corker and a vacuum pump. I put one capsule through it and I was like a boy with his first train set. It is totally awesome and really speeds up the process (one second per bottle). Yes every capsule comes out perfect with no winkles. If you use capsules and bottle as much as we do a year it would be an awesome Christmas gift to ask for. LOL Christmas came early!

So he just called me and I fessed up about the carboy and bottle rack and to my surprise he said "Oh, that's good because now you can start on that blueberry wine for me next week"

So I guess he just gave me permission to go buy more stuff because he knows that concord from juice is next... lmao! Oh how I love tax return time... lol

Daisy, shrink capsules are pretty cheap (.07 each) where you're going tomorrow and don't forget to ask for a sample of the Eskimo Kiss, It is the best. You have to check out everything on line first though as they do not have a show room for wine supplies, just for tastings.

So what do I do when I get there? Say I want to see the black market supplies? Thank goodness I'm not a shy woman! lol
