I got a chance to brew this weekend myself. First batch in a about 5 months and got to use some of my new equipment. Brewed 6gal of porter in my 15gal Boilermaker and got to use my keg cowboy 40 plate chiller as well as my new chugger pump and even crushed all the grain from whole with the barley crusher I got a few months ago. I was more or less just doing a test run with all the new equipment since I've never used it in a full run so far.

All in all, I was really happy with how everything worked out. I hit most of my temps within a degree and hit my O.G. 3 points high. Even brought up my efficiency from 66% to 72%. I wish my chiller water was cooler as I could only get my temp to 80F starting but I've set the primary in a swamp cooler and hoping to bring it down.

Brewed a Nut Brown Ale on Friday with a new convert. It went very well, cold break in about 10 minutes from boiling and the krausen was sky high after two days.

Probably not this weekend, unless I can convince my old lady to let me buy another fermenter, but October 1st I'm brewing a stout and a second which I haven't decided on yet, any suggestions?

Yup- headed out to the Blind Lady Ale House tonight, going to bottle the ESB that's in my primary tomorrow, and then brew up a dark Belgian for Christmas presents. First time with the new turkey fryer, looking forward to a great beer weekend.
