That's Yeager all right. He really doesn't need 10 - 20 people to start running around like a rat on crack. You could drop the 0's.

Ned was at the shop last week and he's aware of the maple syrup requirement. If the wine vat doesn't work out I can offer up a keggle and a 58 qt or 70 qt mash tun.

It was busy Thursday night when our boy showed up at the shop so I didn't get a chance to inquire on the other project for that day.

Oh sure. We'd probably need 500 lbs of grain if we had to rely on first runnings only. Se sparge to get volume and to get as much sugar out of the grains as possible then boil to concentrate it.

Who ended up with that HUGE brew kettle from Masstoberfest? That's what you need, more surface area for evaporation than the keggles.

That's a good idea. Frank W won it, I may have to put the arm on him. Still, a few pots going at once will make short work of things. I ended up buying a banjo burner and installing it on my rig, I honestly believe that you could use that thing to launch a Saturn Rocket.

Probably. You need my gear to help out on this project?

I don't think so. There are going to be some serious modifications on the way we do it this year, starting with a MEGA mash tun.

But an extra burner or two going in the garage helps keeps things warmer and raises the carbon monoxide level to a point where I might have a legally sound defense when I strangle Yeager.

We could just leave all the burners running while we all "run out to the store" or "go pick up Hippie" or whatever - just close the doors on our way out "to keep all the heat inside". No prints!
