Bummed out

Recommended Posts

My Cowboy larger is in the ferment keg waiting it's second week before bottling. So what happens? I have a heart attack on Friday. :S I'm told it will be a while before I can have a beer if at all. :( I am bummed out but happy to be alive. :lol:

Damn.....just relax a bit. Your heart is more important than beer.

Get well soon my MB friend. Without heart, there would be no more beer. Sounds like your Cowboy Lager will benefit from the long ferment time, & the long conditioning time until your Doc gives you thumbs up to drinking again.

Wow, dude...sorry to hear that. Take care of yourself.

As for the beer stuff - Unless its a wheat beer which needs to be drank early...it should only improve with a bit of age.

If you're up and moving well, this would be a great time to get some extra LBKs and brew. By the time those are good you'll be further along in your recovery.

Take care of yourself first and the beer second! Happy to hear that you are still kickin'!

Bottle that beer up next week and when the doc gives you the go ahead, you'll have a nice little reward. If you can never drink it...invite some family or friends over and let them enjoy it. Obviously, there's more to life than brewing (and drinking) beer, even if it doesn't seem that way to some of us! ;)

Thanks for posting. I, for one, will take a moment with my family tonight and give my wife and daughters and extra kiss and a hug!

Take care of yourself, Steve!

This would be a good one for the "You know you're a homebrewer when..." Thread.

...When you have a heart attack and a big concern is your fermenting Cowboy golden lager!

Glad to hear you're doing good and hope you get well soon!

Let yourself get better, and your beer will get better by itself, so by the time you are given the go ahead you should have a fine brew to celebrate with.

I hope you get better soon.

In the meantime, look at this as a way to build your pipeline. Start brewing beers that have long conditioning times since you won't have the temptation to open them early before they're ready.

Oh that's rough!! Must be a sign of some sort...perhaps you need to make a different batch! Rest up and try to relax as much as possible!

Wow. That is a bummer. More about the heart attack than the beer. It's good to see you're strong enough to be on the computer. When my dad had his heart attack in 1960, he didn't get on the computer for another 20 years or so..

Seriously, your health is more important than the beer. Stay healthy.

Your beer will be A-OK with some extended conditioning time.

Take care of your ticker, brew some more batches to build up your pipeline, and look forward to the day you can RDWHAHB.

And be glad you're still around to be able to look forward to drinking a beer eventually.

Thanks all. I know my heart is more important than beer. :P Just I started this hobby two months ago and have only been able to taste a few bottles. i'm sure in time I'll be able to knock back a few. Seeing my Dr. on Monday and it's one of the questions I have for him.

I'm sorry you have to wait for your beer, but that's definitely better than the alternative. Best wishes for a complete recovery.

I guess having to wait that long for a beer to ferment can really kill you!! RDWHAHB!! Brewing shouldn't be that stressful!!

Good lick on a full and fast recovery!

Well It's been Almost two months since the Heart Attack. Dr. Ok'd me to have a few and finished off the Cowboy Larger. Was excelent. Going to Florida Saturday and have a batch of Irish Stout I just bottled Sunday. I'll let that sit for 4 weeks. so doing well and thanks to all for the well wishes.
By the way. Cardio rehab is a heck of a workout.
