Default Brewing at the beach

I'm thinking it would be awesome to get a bunch of stones and driftwood and setup a fire and brew some ale...

How cool would it be to brew without electricity or propane? I think it would be darn cool...and to cool the wort...I could simple move the brew pot to the ocean for some cooling off...

I'm gonna do it...Yessirree I'm gonna do it....Now if I could only convince some people to give me a ride to the beach.

Why not? Suppose a little salt water happens to splash into the wort...all the more interesting right?

Ahh why not? Why not?

I'd offer you a ride. Even throw a few hops into the batch as a gesture of groovy brewing. Do you surf?
And where are you?
And which styles would be complimented by salt water, do you think?

I've brewed over an open fire before. Everything turned out fine.

Thanks StokedBrew...I'm in Ca too bad your so far.

I was also thinking it would be awesome to start the fire with a magnifying glass and some old newspaper...It sure is cheaper than buying a tank of gas Heheheh....

Darn it... I will do it and take photos as soon as I can coordinate the group to support the event. Its gonna be awesome...I think in this case I'll use extract. But possibly throw some kelp into the boil for fun.

There are a whole lot of bacteria flying around the beach, be careful once you get that brew chilled. I think you might be okay doing an extract batch over an open fire, I say go for it! I hope you werent thinking all grain, that would be a mess.

Whales eye wit. Man in the canoe brew. Salty seaman stout. You'd have access to plenty of isinglass, so no excuses for a hazy beer.

Ha! Awesome!

Brewing on the beach...sweet idea! I really love the thought of brewing over an open fire...would be great. You could always try a steinbeer: heat up some of those smooth sea rocks in your fire until they're piping, and toss them right into your kettle and boil that way. Might be a bit tricky to control, but would be a pretty cool experiment, and it might also save the bottom of your kettle from getting wanked by the flames. If it'll fit them, you could even toss the wort covered rocks into the fermenter, Stone & Wood style.

Either way though, I love the idea.

Coating the outside of your kettle with liquid dish soap will prevent scorching. That's a trick I picked up while backpacking in the Appalachian.
