Default What Ya Doing For St Patties Day?

Drinking Holiday Man I Love It!

Cheers To All My Irish Friends....

I'm taking the day off & brewing my first AG. So it's gonna be a Sweet Water Blue Clone..........(Conerned About Choice I Guess. LHBS asked if I why the wheat didn't scare me off that was in this clone) <--Didn't know it was supposed too.


I got my brand new Mash Tun I build from cooler thread on here...Thanks FlyGuy.



Need another brew pot so if I don't get find one I'll be buying a 20 dollar special Turkey Fryer Pot at the Sports Academy...

Any tips for AG let me know.

A significant amount of wheat increases your chances for a stuck sparge. Some people use thinner mash and/or rice hulls to help. Good luck with first AG.

I'll be drinking my Murphy's Irish Stout clone on St. Patty's day.

It's amateur night kinda like New Year's eve - I stay home and let the law pick on someone else.

I never go out on St. Patrick's. Too many amateurs.

QFT!

Though I am on a college campus and I am a mere 2 blocks from any number of bars I am staying in. No sense fighting the crowds of belligerent drunks especially with class at 9am the next morning.

If I have the energy, I'll stay up way too late brewing the Irish Honey Red that the storm kept me from brewing last weekend (damn plumbing emergencies and power outages!)...

I'm working.

Agreed with above. It's total amateur day, and living in a town with three colleges, it's just not something I want to subject myself to. There is a neighborhood pub that is more working class that I *may* stop by for a pint. I'll likely just take the dog to the park, go home and have a pint of my own stout.

Bringing the festivities to my house instead of hitting the bars. Just kegged a irish stout yesterday, and I will be hosting a St. Patty's Day potluck/Carbomb party. Already bought the corned beef, so I'm good to go
