Too much

Scanning a complete brewing manual today. A silverfish of doubt slipped between the tiles. Do I really need to do this?

Am I going to use all of this?

Then again, the book in question has brilliant information on the handling of cask beer. And stuff about barley varieties, which I've suddenly become fascinated by. So maybe it's not completely crazy.

I could scan the 30 or 40 pages concerning what interests me now. But I accumulate interests like a dictator's wife shoes. Who knows what new ones I'll have next week, let alone next year.

I can't remember buying "Brewing Theory and Practice". Or how I'd heard of it. Or why I forgot to write about it. Just another thing that slipped my mind.

The truth is: I'm overwhelmed. Drowning in data.

I need a research assistant.

Bad news, brother. There's always more data.
