I'm brewing my dogs, which means I'm doing all the work. You guys were right, pulling that malt-pipe out was a pain in the ass. Once you get past the suction created by the pipe, it gets easier but I need to rethink the height of my brew table, it was on the edge of being too high, even with a step ladder.
On a very positive note, this has been a very quite and relaxing brewing experience. I've been kegging other batches and generally doing other things, while I'm brewing.
