I know I’ve said it before and will likely say it every week until I graduate, but the day in the brewery really is my favourite day.
My group was on the pilot system making a holiday beer called I’m Dreaming of a Wit Christmas. It is, as you might have guessed, a Belgian Wit with cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg and citrus added to it. It’s funny, I was feeling pretty confident that I knew the system after the Pilot SOP midterm assignment, but it didn’t take long for it to remind me that I’d only been on it 4 times. Mistakes were made and corrected. I sprayed myself with hot AND cold water, and got Martin a few times too. Confidence deflated.
It was a good day though. There was lots of laughter and conversation, and that’s never a bad thing.
