So I’ve really gotten in to brewing beer. It’s an exciting craft as you have to wait for it and see how it turns out. Brewed my third batch yesterday which is going to bee this years christmas beer. It has honey, orange peel, ginger and cilantro as spices. It’ll be aroung 6,3%.

As I mentioned in the last post I made an IPA and it’s still fermenting in the kitchen. It’s nice sitting in the kitchen and having them both making bubbly sounds in different corners of the room.
Was a busy day, yesterday, as we started off with a morning jog for 6,6km with my girlfriend, then I started brewing beer and by the time I finished up cleaning she’d come back from thaiboxing and I headed off to hockey practice. After that I went for another jog 12km with a friend and ended the night on the sofa and had a beer. Nice day really!
Another thing I learned this week was to cut wine bottles using water…yupp at first I thought how in the world that is possible, but after a few minutes on youtube it got pretty easy 🙂
And so I made a candle wine bottle plank thingy 😛 or an advent candle holder. Im planning to make a chadelier of wine bottles…only need a bit help from a electrician.
Yeah so that’s some of my many hobbies. At the moment I’m reading Thimothy Ferries book “4hour body” that has many intresting tips and facts.
I look forward to the day I get to write a book that’ll be nice…just for the fun of it 🙂
Well if you don’t have any hobbies get one.. there’s always time for it..for a small one..maybe together with someone or at the same time doing something else. It keeps things interesting
Save water and have a beer.
It’s been a while since my last post cuz I’ve been realky busy!! Well not really…been working and such and nothing special really has happened…
Got really frustrated the other day when I tried to play Civilization V on my computer. It’s been a while since I’ve played it and I just got empty space in my (not so busy) scedule. The thing os that 2min into the game the screen goes black, the sound jams up and then the computer restarts. It’s done this before and the problem went away when I cleaned the fans… now though that doesen’t seem to help anymore…although I spent half an hour unscrewing fans, cleaning and putting them back together…what to do…is my computer gettung too old? (from 2010)
The other problem is my arm. I started feeling pain in it on a hockey practice a few days after the Strong Viking race in Amsterdam. I think it’s just that i have worked it too hard and it needs to rest.. it’s a weird pain though.. like a headache but in the arm. It hasn’t gone away now in 2weeks and I really want to play hockey without the pain.
Well that’s enough whining for now… the good parts are that the Strong Viking was really cool! had 35 different obstacles. we did the 19km race so we had to do some of them again. maybe 13km would have been enough to keep it intresting, but I definately will go again next year!
Here’s a video of the race! 10points and a parrot sticker to the one who can spot us in it 😉

Another fun thing was brewing beer this week! It’s going to bee a pretty strong IPA around 7,5%. The bubbling noise in the closet has a nice touch to the weeks of waiting and the excitement of how the beer will turn out! I got so excited I decided to brew another beer next week aswell! It’s going to be a christmas beer… as is the nordic habbit since the Viking era and beyond. So im brewing it with honey.
I’ll be posting about that later.
Last but not least happy fathers day to all dads in the world! Sitting in my parents sofa at the moment watching TV with them both.
